I know the anticipation is killing you all...I am finally back with a recap of the "2 blondes & a truck road trip" to the 2011 Country Living Fair. I have two words....wow and, uh, WOW!
As you can see above, I settled in quite nicely driving the big-rig truck (That's me top left). Thank god the seat was totally adjustable as were the gas and brake pedals!
And since I seem to be a magnet for traffic jams, it was fitting that we stumble upon it when I was driving. Perfect.
We even managed to find a great antique mall along the way.
420 miles and 7 hours later we reached our destination.
The next morning we were giddy with wallets in hand and off
to the County Living Fair (CLF). Can you tell we were a
little bit excited to be there?
The CLF was huge and we needed a map to navigate. Despite my perplexed look, yes I know how to read a map!
After we figured it out, I navigated myself to my first purchase of the day! A great shabby chic architectural thingy
- not sure what to call it, but I love it!
Oh, and here I am lugging our "granny cart" around. I look like a serious woman on a mission. Don't mess with me!
Shut up. I know what you are thinking. Why would we lug such a cart around and look like idiots? Hands down the best idea ever. And every other person was lugging the exact same cart. So there.
Both my sister and I were in awe of all the great vendors and their fabulous stuff. Here is some of what we saw....
There was a ton of Fall/Halloween decor!
Why I didn't take more pictures of the vendors is beyond me. But then again, I was navigating my "granny cart" among 800 people and 150 booths worth of stuff with my camera strapped around my neck.
I am kicking myself for not buying more stuff. Both my sister and I were a lot more "tame" with our purchases than I anticipated.
Here is my last and best purchase of the day...
This is an old (very rustic)tobacco basket. Best part is that I scored it for $30! Not sure where I will put it yet but am confident it will find the perfect spot in our house.
The CLF was hands down THE best fair I have ever been too. The 2 blondes & a truck road trip was a success.
Can't wait to do it all over again next year!
