Country Living Fair in Atlanta




This past weekend, my husband, youngest daughter, and I attended the Country Living Fair in Atlanta.  It was held at Stone Mountain Park which is just amazing to see.
                 

Hometalk, where I post (and find great posts!), hosted a blogger meet and greet along with the Country Living Editors.  It was great getting to meet face-to-face with some of the bloggers I follow...Kathy of A Delightsome Life (a fellow homeschooling mom!), Kim of Savvy Southern Style (love her sitting room with the dogs and hunting decor!), Rhoda of Southern Hospitality (who's provided me with a lot of inspiration over the past couple of years!) and Linda of Coastal Charm, and others that I met for the first time at the fair.  Super sweet and really helpful at answering questions for an amateur like me.

Hometalk Meetup at the Country Living Fair
These are the wonderful bloggers attending for the Country Living/Hometalk Meet and Greet.  Country Living's Editor-in-Chief, Sarah Miller, is in the center.  She and others from Country Living Magazine as well as the Hometalk crew were so gracious to meet with us.    Borrowed this pic from DIYontheCheap.com (She's the cute one to the right of the sign holding the t-shirt and bag!)

Cari Cucksey, of HGTV's Cash and Cari, had a booth at the Fair and took a minute to speak with us about her business of repurposing furniture and other items to resell.  Isn't she cute?!  Love the vintage boots.

Stone Mountain on its own is a great place to visit but throw in the Country Living Fair with loads of great vintage, antique, and handmade items PLUS an amazing fall day...that's just icing on the cake!

Here's a look at just a few of the booths this year.  I'm sorry I didn't get more.  I was like a kid in a candy shop with all the goodies and I kept forgetting to take pictures!

                  
These amazing signs are handmade by Tara of Between You and Me.  I follow her blog but didn't get a chance to speak to her.  Her booth was super busy!

                                     
Loved this snowman!  I have a snowman fetish :)

                                 
One of the adorable campers from Sisters on the Fly.  It's on my bucket list to join them one day!

So, what did I come home with??  Don't laugh.  It's not a lot but it's really cute!

                                 
It's a vintage store sign from Dilley Brand's booth.  They had some GREAT items.  You can check them out here.  I haven't found a place for it yet but I'm thinking it will be somewhere displayed with my vintage aprons!  I'll let you know :)

I hope you enjoyed visiting the Country Living Fair with me.  As always, I appreciate your stopping by and God bless!!
