I had a blast at the Country Living Fair this weekend. I went on Friday with my niece and did a ton o' shopping.
BTW, new shoes and walking all over the fair do not make for happy feet.
Oh, and if you are going to sit on a hay bale to eat lunch, make sure it's not wet. I don't need any help with looking like I may have peed my pants, thank you!
I'm all about the obvious tips, aren't I.
Then I went back on Saturday for a bit to meet up with some other bloggers and to meet the Editor of Country Living (!!!), Sarah Gray Miller, along with Rachel DeSchepper, the magazine's Senior Web Editor, and Cari Cucksey from HGTV's Cash and Cari.
I took my big girl camera with me, but it was just so darn busy and crowded that I didn't get any good photos with it and finally just tucked it back in my backpack and turned to my trusty cell phone for photos.
Here are some of the pics I shared on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
I bought none of this stuff, but I wanted that tractor grill so badly that I had dreams about it on Friday night.
Now, I actually bought more than what I am about to show you. But someone who reads this blog, that I am related to, will be getting a care package from me in a few weeks and I didn't want to spoil the surprises by posting photos here.
So, it's basically my sister's fault that I'm not showing more of my haul from the fair. Blame her.
This Buddy L zoo truck is my new baby.
Isn't she hot!
I haven't named her yet, but I am picturing her on my dining room table during the holidays with some Christmas trees stuck in the bed. I may have to steal a camel or two out of my nativity set to use as "zoo" animals.
I also bought a bunch of Bingo cards and a penmanship chart that looks like it's written on a green chalkboard.
I love any kind of chalkboard, but green is my favorite.
BTW, no wild turkey legs at the fair. Not sure why they weren't up on that breaking trend.
How was your thrifting weekend? Did you score anything cool? Anything weird?

A great haul! Made me laugh when you mentioned your 'big girl camera'...lol

Good thing I didn't see either that truck OR that penmanship board, cause I would've grabbed them up!! Great finds 🙂
I adore your new truck! What a find! I'd name him Zippy - just for fun LOL.
I LOVE that little red truck, I have been looking all over for one of those. You found some wonderful little treasures, didn't you.

Wow, how cool it must have been to spend time with them. Love your finds, too. Especially the penmanship board.
That little vintage truck is really hot! We'll be tweaking our finished basement (man cave) for hubs and he wants to do it with a vintage car theme for the accessories. How cool to go to the Country Living Fair, some day I hope to go.
Envious that you went to the fair, and envious of your cute little red truck and envious of that school chart...but I'm featuring you this week anyway! :0)
Thanks for sharing at Knick of Time Tuesday, Pam!
