Country Living Fair 2013

Happy Friday, friends! Did any of you make it to the Country Living Fair at Stone Mountain this year or have you attended one of these events somewhere else in the country?

We had the chance to go to the Country Living Fair for the second year a couple of weeks ago at Stone Mountain and we had a great time. We took the girls with us this time, so we weren’t able to slowly saunter through all the booths quite as thoroughly as we did last year, but it was still worth the trip.

There were so many lovely antiques and handmade goods to see, as well as some celebrities in the design world, like Sarah Gray Miller, the editor of Country Living!


And Cari Cucksey, from HGTV’s “Cash & Cari!”


Since last year’s event, I have joined up with the Atlanta DIY Bloggers, and through that group, I was able to be part of a meet and greet with HomeTalk and the editors from Country Living magazine. Do you know about HomeTalk? If not, check it out – it’s an online forum dedicated to home décor, crafts, and DIY things. I’m a newbie and still learning the ropes over there, but so far I love it. It’s similar to Pinterest, but without all the recipes, fashion, and workout stuff.
