country living...ahh...

so my little #3 {aka super baby} is sleeping so wonderfully now. he goes to bed at 9pm and wakes up to eat at 5:00am...i know that is still a little early...but for such a little guy of 3 months old we are LOVIN' the i started this post at 5:30 with him laying next to me and my for the real story:

one thing on my bucket list:
go to country living fair {check}

so i've grown up loving the country living magazine because my mother read it faithfully. she would rip out pages of projects and ideas she wanted to recreate and this practice, along with many other factors, contributed to my love of the art of crafting. not only do i love to craft, but i love seeing the fabulous ideas/talents of others. so when a couple of years ago my mom showed me this fair {on one of the pages she had ripped out}, it made my bucket list. then to find out it was in columbus, oh which is only 2 hours south of me...PERFECT. i was really hoping that my mom could come and go with me...but her schedule was too full. we are already making plans for next year though.

so without much further take on the country living fair:

{a beautiful 78 degrees and hundreds of exhibits}
{giant pumpkin stack}

{some fabulous fall lovelies}

{many beautiful quilts}

{bird houses to die for}

{awesome surround sound}

{ahh, lemonade...nothin' but lemons, water & sugar...tasted so good in the warm sun}

{before & after}

{several creators}

{some vintage-like lovelies}
{you know i love owls...i think i'll have to come up with something for halloween}

{little flower lovelies}
{and a few weird items...yup, that's a doll head in a nest in a cage}

{some wonderful friends to share the day with...sigh}
till next year

p.s. they had a special fair offer of $5 for a year subscription to Country Living Magazine, {of course i bought it} so now i can tear my own pages out...
