atlanta sure was on it's best fall manners this weekend for the Country Living Fair!
the weather could not have been more perfect!
we're usually about 10 degrees warmer so the breezy cool mornings were definitely a treat!
friday morning we were up & at 'em early ready to have madison at the hospital for her surgery
at o'dark thirty.
turns out it was a little more invasive than they had predicted but she did fine.
we came home with her loaded up on drugs
tucked her in & said nighty night.
dad did nurse duty
ran as fast as i could headed over to the fair.
after a hectic week
it was nothing but pure heaven for me
to enjoy the glorious day, shop,
gaze at the jennifer lanne paintings,
meet some blog readers-which is a huge treat
run into some long time friends.
let me state the obvious,
i have the roundest face.ever.
for some reason, if someone says "hey lets take a photo"
i get real excited, smile huge
& my face doubles in size.
it also goes without mentioning
that all my friends
have tiny well proportioned faces.
i have been a fan and customer of jen's for a little over 10 years.
you've seen her gorgeous fabrics, sis boom, everywhere.
when we caught each others eye, it was so sweet.
you know, when you've known someone via the world wide web
for so long
& then meet live and in person,
it's so sweet!
so we hugged tight and kissed cheeks
and may or may not have teared up.
she's a serious rockstar ya'll!
next up was debbie from french laundry home
who's line was blowing up one kings lane
while she was being the booth at country living.
i think i mentioned we were neighboring shop owners years ago.
i gushed all over her & congratulated her for taking over the world
of all things linen and burlap.
her lovelies can be found at horchow & neiman's too.
brought this little baby home with me.
thought it would be mighty cute in a photo session.
my little cube again~
you may see some of these babies in an anthro ad.
i was pretty behaved with my shopping.
i did snag a bag of kettle corn which , as you can see, is a fave of little one's.
some french laundry goodness.
i also picked up a couple large gold frames to use
in some photo sessions too.
alrighty, time to wrap it up!
