Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

The Happiest Place on Earth

No sillies, not Disney. 
Country Living Fair!
At least one of the top 10, right?

Sandy and I did a nonstop tour.  
Walked a thousand miles in a weekend.

Stocked up on supplies for mixed media.
Junk Art if you will. 
Wish I could shorten that and coin a new word.
Jart? Nope, already taken.
Arunk? Definitely not!
JA? Too Germanic.

Let's just say, no need to restock our supplies in the very near future.
The creativity was inspiring.
Found myself absolutely geeking several times.

Loved it immensely.
Seeing Sandy again just iced the cake!
One day here, one day at Springfield Antique Show and Sunday morning at Dick Blick, what more can a girl ask for?

If I could fly (I mean literally, with own) I would be in Atlanta.
Can one be a Dead Head for Country Living Fair? 

Not even going to try for an acronym for that .

Just a lovely place to be.

you find in ordinary things."

Pin It!

Wasn't it fun. I loved that lemonaid stand. I saw that big chest and that oilcloth lady. The big pumpkin stack.....a little boy pulled a gourd out from the bottom and ran and showed his dad.....everyone laughed.
How did it compare to Springfield?
