My Fun Finds from the Country Living Fair

Hello everyone!

I can finally share what I bought from the Country Living Fair recently.

  I always stop at the French Laundry booth when I first get there.  They are known for beautiful bedding, table linens, and pillows.  They never disappoint with their good prices and high quality.  It's such a treat to get to choose something from their booth.  Normally, their linens sell for much more at stores, but they offer special pricing at the fair.  This is the third year in a row that I've bought pillows from them. This year, they offered pillow covers as well.  They cost even less so I just bought the covers this year instead.  I have plenty of inserts at home!

Here is the first pillow.


As always, I go for the French style pillow covers.  This one is cream and grey.  Then I bought 2 matching pillow covers that were cream and blue.




I like how the back of these have just the blue stripes and no lettering.  So, it's like getting 2 pillows in one.

My favorite find is this old fashioned sign!


It's hand painted on some old chippy painted wood.  It's made to look like an arrow too.  It is hung above my sofa in the family room.


And finally, I fell in love with this old wooden crate.  A guy was selling them for just $20.  He had so many I couldn't have counted them all!  He said they came from a blueberry farm.  You can see the writing on the front.


I used it on top of the bookcase in my kitchen and filled it with topiaries.  

I recently re accessorized this bookcase since I now have a pantry to store my food in. This used to be filled with bins, but now it has dishes in it.  I will show you that soon.

So that is my "show and tell" from the County Living Fair 2015!  I hope they will come back to Atlanta again next year.  If they do, I will definitely make another trip.  

Thanks for stopping by!  

Have a wonderful weekend.

Kelly, LOVE those pillows and especially that they just have the stripes on the back. That way you can flip them and have a whole new look.
LOVE your sign, too! Sending the idea to my son if that is okay? He is always on the lookout for neat signs. xo Diana

Very pretty finds Kelly. Adore that sign and the crate you found. Love French Laundry but often too pricey. Understand why since everything labor intensive just wish a bit less money.

I love that they offer special pricing at the fair. You got some pretty pillow covers and that's great that one is reversible! I think my favorite though is that crate! I love what it says on it and that it came from a blueberry farm. I just adore things like that. Reminds me of the book I used to read to my boys "Blueberries for Sal." :)

We are almost twins, I think!! If we were there together we might have been fighting over these things!! I LOVE the pillow with blue stripes and I actually wrote about my love for pillow covers in my last post---so much more inexpensive. The crate is so perfect. You have a great eye!

I love everything you got, Kelly. I wish we had a Country Living Fair nearby. But then again I would probably spend too much money. xo Laura

Yup, I like everything you brought home. Think I'll pin that sign too in case I want to make a version of it for somewhere at my house.
