COUNTRY LIVING FAIR
Whew. Time flies when you're having fun. October has been a busy month of travels – and that's exactly how we like it.
I'm admittedly a crafty-junkin'-antiquey-vintage-lovin' sort of gal. And thank goodness Mister M doesn't mind it too much either. We can spend some serious time in junky, dusty roadside shacks searching for time-worn treasure and trinkets.
I also love a good outdoor festival, especially in the fall. The sort of day when the air is perfectly crisp and the sky is that shade of unbelievable blue. So imagine my delight to learn that the Country Living Fair was making its way to Atlanta in late October. Country Living is a fab magazine that (despite the name, which can be a little misleading) showcases everything from inspired design, artful and imaginative home decor, crafty goodness, delicious recipes and more DIY than you can shake a glue stick at. It's always on trend and there seems to be a real appreciation for making old things from years past feel new again. Right up my alley.
The fair was held at Stone Mountain Park (trivia time: did you know Stone Mountain is the largest piece of exposed granite in the world?) and Mister M reserved a sweet little site in the campgroud so we could spend the weekend taking in the fair and the activities in the park.
Much to our delight, Sisters on the Fly was also present and we absolutely loved seeing all of their decorated and glammed out trailers. Those women know how to have a good time, and we were a little sad we weren't on their loop.
The fair boasted everything from vintage tchotchkes, jewelry, clothing, woodworking, gourmet treats and just about anything in between. Of course, I was more inclined to linger at the vintage vendors. The styling alone of these booths must have taken hours upon hours and did not disappoint.
We'll be back next year!
