Country Living Fair & Some Pumpkins

Hi ~ hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.  Mine was pretty good.  The hubby took me thrift store shopping on Saturday but I didn't find anything good which was ok since I got so many goodies on Friday. We had fun running around together.  On Sunday my mom, my aunt, her friend, & I all went to the Country Living Fair down in Columbus. Just let me say it was

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!

It was huge! I would've never imagined it would've been so big & full of so many different kinds of booths.   They even had demonstrations going on given by the magazine staff. We had a blast.  We were there for 4 hours & we were all beat by the time we left but we had a good time. :O)  I didn't have a whole lot of money & it cost $16 to get in (which was about 1/2 of my $ to begin with! lol) but I still managed to get a few goodies.

 some coasters that made me think of my whiskey lovin hubby named Joe! lol
they were too perfect to pass up
this little hanging star candle holder ~ i have an obsession with stars!

I also bought my sis Lil Raggedy Angie something very cool for her birthday but since her bday isn't till Wednesday ~ you'll have to wait till then see the pic. :O)

I managed to get a few pumpkins made for the house & a scarecrow for my wall.  Now I just need a few more inside & to finish up some outside decorations & I think I'll be done decorating.  I know what I want to do ~ I just need to get it done!




~ this is my fav ~

Well I'm off to get Cody from school. Hope everyone has a great day!

Rachel, Your pumpkins turned out really nice. Love the different colors. I have some in the works but haven't had much time to work on them.
I just got back from the Doctor since it was blood drawing time, ugh! It is raining down here and I just might go in the craft room and work on them pumpkins. I also love anything with stars on it. Can't wait to see what you picked up Angie for her birthday.
I had heard about the Country Living Fair in Columbus, but I have never been. I bet there were lots to see. Enjoy your goodies.
