More Country Living

I always wanted a wicker bicycle so I fell in love with this wicker motorcycle. I used to ride a motorcycle but mine was a Harley and didn't look anything like this!


Now this is my idea of a shovel!!!


If you click to enlarge this you will see that Longaberger put out a witch hat basket for Fall this year. It is next to the woman at the end of the table.


Coffee tables made from grain scales. I have one which I bought 30 years ago in Toronto.


More Halloween! I love the old scrub bucket and stand.


It is worth going to this fair just to see how people arrange and decorate their booths.


I love bottle brush trees and glitter houses and this booth had them all.


They arranged them table by table according to colors and holidays.


I am too into Halloween right now to think about Christmas.


But they sure were fun to look at.


I fell totally in love with these aprons made from vintage French linen sheets but at 100.00 each, I took a pass. Plus, I never wear aprons.


This gives you an idea of how large this fair is.


Cute booth, cute name.


This booth sold reproductions of yellow ware bowls and pitchers.


Charming!


Berries in the Meadow.....what a great name.


These are old French canvas postal bags. I wanted one but just couldn't think of how to use it so I didn't buy one. I know I will eventually kick myself when I think of a way I could use it. They were huge.


And if you want a badass dog collar this booth had them!


Tansy was for sale and smelling wonderful all over the fair. Tansy has also taken over The Blog Tech's backyard.


The gardens of Ohio City.


And the gardeners.


I like the way they laid down straw on the paths and I might do that in my lower garden.


This sunflower is supported by a ladder.


This is my favorite booth. Check out the ornamental carved wooden pieces that decorate the top of the tent.


A small greenhouse made from windows. I have one of these.


These pillows are made from old army blankets.


I especially love their signs.


True that!!! This is the way I live my life!


Man, I have misspent my life.....damn! The Blog Tech on the other hand has done anything but!


Check out the name of my favorite booth....STASH.


It is a good idea to wear what you are selling.


The Blog Tech and I hit the southern fried chicken booth.


Unfortunately, the chicken was more like chicken jerky than good southern fried chicken, but the smothered green beans were to die for!

More tomorrow. This is a BIG fair!!!
