Country Living Fair 2009

Last weekend, we headed down to the Ohio Historical Society in Columbus, OH where the annual Country Living Magazine Fair was being held.

This was our third trip to The CL Fair, and boy has it grown!
Not only in vendors, but I think word-of-mouth has spread because it was super packed with ladies on the hunt just like me..hunting for that perfect treasure...

I took pretty pictures along the way of my's some of the sites..enjoy!

As I am a paper lover~
I just adore ephemera..and there was lots to be had...treasures galore!

I just thought this was so sweet.
I see these lanterns at post-summer sales all around
and I never thought to do something like this.
(Kicking myself- think outside of the box! Or in this case fancy lantern candle holder thingy!lol)
Paint it pink, add a sweet porcelain dollie and an old picture-voila! Super sweet.

more pretties...

This year at the CL Fair there was an explosion of french-inspired goodies.
It seems every booth was going for the "french flea market" look...
These bags and pillows~wow!
And maybe it was because I was a show choir geek in high school
(Are you watching Glee? It's amazing!) but I loved these old weird choir angel heads.
The price was a bit out of my league but wow...
I am having a love affair with numbers lately...
everything I gravitate towards has a number on it.
And not even that the number particularly means something.
It's just I love numbers and this shelf was like the
creme De la creme' of numbers...what a neat idea.

and as always vendors at the CL Fair always serve up the best Halloween goodies...seeing all the neat Halloween treats got me so excited that we decorated our house this weekend!
I know, I know it's not even October I one of those people? apparently yes, I am.

After our CL Fair fun we headed down to spend the weekend with our friends Joe and Erin...what a whirlwind fun weekend!
Treasure hunting and good friends...

Here we are, two witchy Big Lots no
See You next Year at the CL Fair!!!!
