As promised, here are all the pictures I took at the Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY, last Friday!
Well, just a few of them, because I took about 150 pictures.
The drive up on the Taconic was beautiful again, and after an hour, I reached the fair at 11am.
And thanks to Don, who picked up Landon from the bus, I didn’t have to rush back and instead stayed until the fair closed at 5pm. Six solid hours of bliss!
This year she greeting me with “Hey, Dagmar!” and gave me a big hug. So sweet. Here we are on Instagram.
We talked about her new paint and stain line, and I ended up buying a can of her white RePurpose CromaColor paint. I’m finally going to tackle our four living room chairs. Cari gave me a lot of painting tips, and offered to help if I have other questions.
Incidentally, the Newburg Vintage Emporium where I had my booth is the only store in the area that carries Cari’s whole line. And she sells it online and ships all over the country.
I looked through this box of postcards and found this one! If you read my “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party post, you’ll know what’s so special about it.
Then it was time to walk around some more. This booth was full of fun items.
I like this simple idea of using a pie tin, a tin pot, and a cloche. Since I can make that myself, I didn’t buy it.
I was tempted to buy this sign for our garden full of weeds :)
Across from that booth was the airstream from the ladies from 2 Chix and a Barn.
I should’ve picked up two of these windows for our porch. I want to hang two on the sides of the porch.
I left with dozens of DIY ideas I want to recreate in our house.
This booth was my latest stop while the fair was closing, and I bought these “Mr.” and “Mrs.” signs that are not hanging in our bathroom.
