COUNTRY LIVING FAIR - ATLANTA

What a weekend!  The Country Living Fair exceeded my expectations in many ways, but most importantly, it gave me a huge dose of inspiration.  It was just what I needed!  I went with daughter Kelly and sisters-in-law, Marie and Kathy.  Kathy came all the way from Connecticut for the fun!  And fun we had.

Inspiration 1:  COATS
I bought one at Anthropologie before I left Atlanta.

Inspiration 2:  BURLAP
Not really sure about the pants, but still they caught my eye!
I did ask her if she was wearing them as a punishment.
She assured me that they were lined.

Loved the shade!

Wished I had thought of bringing a cart--with a burlap bow!

I just had to have those buntings  in the background for my camper!
One side is colorful and the other is black chalkboard.  LOVE!

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
