Not Done With the Country Living Fair Yet!

By the time I am done you will feel like you've been there! But think of all the money I saved you. I love signs and this woman always has the best ones.


I don't know if this woman has an online store but you should google her or the name of her company, Not So Common Folk Art, and see her work. Everything here is made from reproductions of her original paintings.


This is another of my favorite booths.


How cool is it that they set up that old buffet to display things on?


This is some of what she offers on the inside.


And this was a cute addition to the fair. She sells objects to make fairy gardens.


Click to enlarge. These would be too cute to have for a little kid.


She sells trellises, arbors, fairies, fences, benches, etc..


Nice bird houses.


Gourd Jack O' Lanterns that make me smile.


I bought one of these baskets to fill with evergreens to hang on my front door for Christmas.


Black cat chair.


I have days like this.


Someone was not fair enthusiastic!


The broom guy. I actually managed to not buy a broom this year. I think I have at least one broom in every room. I'm a poet and didn't know it.


I love this chair done in leather and wool.


And these lampshades are in my future. Just when I thought I was out of my lampshade faze now I have a new project in store for me.


Finally I've found a way to use up all of that trim.


And I LOVE this chair too.


Someone decorated their cart. I don't think I have ever seen a Jack O' Lantern with the teeth sticking up.


More squash art.


An antique carriage on the green.


Another cute display.



This is such a good place to get your Fall on.




I like how they decorated the fence with gourds and corn.


What a great way to use and old dresser mirror. They painted it with chalkboard paint and now it is a decorative chalkboard. Great re-purposing.

Click for a closer look at this decoration. They rolled up book pages into cones and glued them together and then just cut out those two middle disks and added 'spooky' to it and made a great Halloween decoration.


Uh Blog Tech....maybe you should help the girl carry those big boxes instead of taking pics of her carrying the big boxes?


She smiled at you anyway.


Who knew?

More fair tomorrow.

I can never see to many photographs of these fairs! Lots of things I would like to have, like those bird houses and one of those pumpkins just because we almost never see pumkins over here.

I saw one in the supermarket the other day and the price was so high that I think it would be better to buy gold instead, it lasts longer :-) :-) :-)

You were right about thgose photographs I was looking after, I found them in mmy old blog :-)

Have a great day!

Definitely a place to get your fall on. Loved the crazy woman statue and the chairs. It was all so beautiful.

Oh no! Did the Blog Tech run amok in the Female Seminary?

Barb said...

I would almost live where it's hot just to get to fairs like this one!!! I will check and see if Not So Common Folk Art has a web site!

LOVE the Sleepy Hollow sign and the one with the three flying witches! Can't wait to see what all you actually brought home with you!

I read somewhere that this fair was not as exciting as some others. It sure does not look that way from your photos! This is a wonderful place to be lost for days. I think I could spend an entire day in certain booths and tents.
Thank you so much for sharing.

Looks like a great place to spend the day and the sign lady sure has some great stuff.

I got my FALL on just looking at all your photos of the fair. Nothing like that around here. I'm so jealous.

Lois said...

Now I want to re-upholster my wing chair in crazy-quilt combinations...

Jennifer said...

Saw my very first pumpkins at the local farmer's market, today! Fall is here! Yea! I LOVE those Fairy Gardens. What a great idea. Think I'll make some with my papercrete for in front of my craft shop. This is such fun!
