Vintage mason jars, rustic enamel ware, ironstone, farmhouse signs, well-loved linens, cottage decor…
The Country Living magazine features all of this and more, and their pages are always full of wonderful inspiration. Reading Country Living is one of those little pleasures for me.
So when the Country Living Fair shows up just an hour away from us in Rhinebeck, NY, once a year, I make a point to visit and blog about it.
You can find all of my previous posts about the Country Living Fair in 2013, 2014, and 2015 here.
After getting Landon on the school bus, I headed to Rhinebeck last Friday. It was raining a bit the whole drive, but when I arrived, the weather cleared up and was just perfect for having a fun visit and finding some treasures I can’t live without.
Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck 2016
Country Living was kind enough to reserve a ticket for me — they know what a huge fan I am.
If you look carefully, you can see the vintage tablecloth I ended up buying on the top of that shelf. I featured it in my latest “Thrifty & Vintage Finds” link party.
I got to meet the lovely Rachel Hardage Barrett, CL’s editor-in-chief (in the black-and-white dress) and Carrie Carlson from Hearst magazines.
I also had a lovely chat with Joanne Palisano, blogger and author of Salvage Secrets Design & Decor. Our decorating style is very similar, and we hit it off right away!
Aren’t these little doll cups adorable? I bought the one in the center of the picture to add to one of our plants.
I bought a bird feeder from them two years ago, and this year I bought two of these fence posts with the little bird houses on it for our porch.
As a matter of fact, I picked up this awesome coffee table from the side of the road for free the other day.
Did you attend the Country Living Fair this year? What kind of treasures did you come home with?
