Country Living Fair Day Two

Lots of pictures for you today. I hear you laughing at the first one. This is my bugs bunny look. I wanted to include it because my friend Paula was in the pic. She is one of the girls that I meant in the bathroom last year. Her friend, Julia, couldn't go this year. She had her sweet daughter with her this time. Even thought it cooled down the night before it was still hot. Hot under those tents especially. It was really crowded. This is from one of the vintage tear drop campers. Last year they had three different ones at the one end of the fair. So fun these campers are. A little space to sleep, eat and cook......no potty though. People lined up to peek inside. Sorry there are alot of butt shots.

This one was air brushed so cute. There was a couple of ladies that were vendors next to this camper. We were asking about the campers. She said she didn't have a camper but joined the group by glamping in a tent. Sure sounds like fun to me.....the camper not the tent.
Don't let this guy scare you.......much more to show you.
The next three pictures were inside the tent with Earth Angels. Can you tell no one was buying things in here. I loved the shadow boxes. There was lots of jewelry in the front of the tent. Lots of jewelry everywhere but it was selling. I heard a vendor say they didn't bring alot of furniture (I use that word too much) because it wasn't selling very well. I didn't see people carrying many big items. I did see several carrying old window frames. I thought the prices were high.


This doggie was all zipped up in his carrier but found a spot to look out. There was another doggie there that I saw on both days in his stroller as well.
I thought this was the name of the booth but I didn't seen any reference to that name inside. Of course the "circus" caught my eye.
One of my favorite vendors was there......from Tickled Pink. I met her a couple years ago standing in line at a sale. Next time I saw her she was a vendor at a spring Urban Society sale. If you turn sideways this sign says 50 shades of pink, hah.

I took this picture for Claudia. It says, Never ever kill a mockingbird.
Lots of dress forms or busts? Some were very dark.
Lots of benches made out of doors and beds.
Cari's spot. I saw her shopping and we said hello. I wish I could have made her presentation but I went to Goose's soccer game.
These two pictures having a sofa and two chairs made from a bathtub. I couldn't get it all in one shot. Too many butts in the way.

How about this chair.
This artist was sitting there painting these paintings. Different.
I didn't go back to the fair today. Stayed home with Mr. Cozy today. I got to see most of the fair, I think. I didn't buy much....the banner, a couple yards of oilcloth, three little flashcards and the fairy kit, two box lunches, and two lemon shake-ups. It was a fun time. So glad that I was able to go.

How interesting about making furniture out of old tubs, never thought of that one! Love the bench too from the bed frame. Looks like you had fun.

Susie Q said...

My biggest regret was not seeing you! Next year let's plan on going together! Maybe as a Buckeye Bloggers event! I had been there 3 hours when you called and after such a long week, Terri and I were pooped! It got a lot warmer than I thought it would! But so many goodies to see! I wish I had more stamina to do more time but we did have fun! Let;s plan a little meet up in October okay?
Love,
Sue

Looks like a lot of fun! Love the little dog - he put a big smile on my face.

In regards to your comment on my blog about your son when he was in college...I'm curious, did he marry the girlfriend from 8th grade? xox

I've sure had fun seeing your photos. It is an amazing fair with so much variety. I've noticed that people are buying smaller items...for less money at fairs and festivals. Love your photos! What FUN!

Your pictures look great and it sounds like you had a good time, Debby. I came away with 5 napkins from Springfield. Nothing really caught my eye, plus it had just rained and a lot of tables were covered up. Even after it stopped those tables were still covered up. I don't know how anyone thought they would sell stuff like that.

Hi Debby, I love your CL fair badge the best of all the photos! So cute to have as a remembrance. I hope you are enjoying the cooler weather. Boy have we waited a long time for it to come. Have a great rest of the week. Elizabeth

Debby.....This is your derelict (sp?) friend. All I can say is I wish I had been there with you. We would have had the best time. Love the tiny little camper and the bath tub chairs. They are amazing. I am back in bed with my back. Got Bud to Asheville for the race - a 10 hour round trip. Went on Friday and returned on Sat. By Sunday I was in bad shape again. Am gonna try to go to work tomorrow but I do not know. Yep, this is the last year. I am a goner. I am really wondering if I am going to make it til June. I am ready for it to end. I am tired. Bud is gonna have to pick up the slack. He turned 60 last week and you know how old I am. Still have your book beside the computer....it WILL come to you one of these days. Love you lots....genie Love your first picture :-)
