The Queen & Her Royal Court's Trip to the Country Living Fair & Market in Georgia

Well...The Cranky Queen & her gal pals (that are referred to as "Her Royal Court") made a trip to the Country Living Fair in Stone Mtn., Georgia...3 words describe this market "to die for!" We had to most wonderful time!  Great weather, great friends, great fellowship!
We had the Time of Our Lives!
Friendship woven together by a common thread...JUNK!
 (LtoR) Wanda from Excuse Me Why I Buy This Junk, Melanie & me.

So I will share the highlights with you of our Royal Outing...
STOP #1~Earth Angels
STOP #2: The Happy Chair

The Happy Chair had the most funky and beautifully upholstered chairs that I have ever seen...fit for Royalty! You can find the creator at shawnarobinson.com
Can you pick your fav?

STOP #3:  The Charming Cherub
 Melanie bought a great broken china necklace here!
Debra owner of The Charming Cherub, sold me this brooch 15 yrs. ago...she kindly re-furbished it for me at the show! She is crazy talented and I love, love, love her handmade jewelry. She is also an Alabama gal!

STOP #4:  Cash & Cari
 Mel & I love this gal...very talented in her Estate Sale gigs!...& she is just adorable in real life!

STOP #5:  South Porch Antiques
 This was my "belle of the ball" purchase...a very old Memory Jug!
 Mel scored a "trophy wife" which was an adorable loving cup with a head & bodice of a plaster vintage lady
...& he, ladies, is the cutest cowboy ever...not from Texas...but New York!

NEXT STOP: Splurge Design
Luv the industrial look of their items!

Indigo Junction Was the Next Stop on The Trail
Melanie made my swing jacket from an Indygo Junction pattern purchased last year. The jacket is made from vintage bark cloth snagged on EBAY!  indygojunction.com

These ladies were "a hoot" & their tent set up & items to sell were amazing from Romantic Farmhouse!
My fav vendor & blog friend, Nancy's booth Sassy Trash www.sassytrash.blogspot.com

Just some other snapshots of the show!


Love this bag... this gal's boots were awesome too!
 And lets not forget the amazing jewelry fit for the Queen!
 ...And purses...

 Melanie literally walked the soles off her boots at the show!
Wanda & her daughter, Erin, spent some amazing quality time together...
 Even found an old acquaintance (my last name is STEERS)
So by Sunday...the trunk was full...we were ecstatically tired...and already making plans for next year!
I think these posters sold at the show sums it up!


  1. I truly enjoyed seeing Your Highness and Melanie again!! Thanks so much for including a pic of my booth and the link!! (and thanks especially for your understanding!!) You got some really great pics of stuff I didn't see! Glad you had a safe trip!

  2. Thanks for sharing your pictures - I forgot my camera. What a great show!

  3. Oh I am completely an unhealthy shade of green!! What an amazing place to go and be....But, of all the treasures, I'm loving that NY cowboy the best! ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. That is a lot of cool stuff!! Must of been fun.

  5. Fabulous! We attended a Country Living Faire in London a few years ago but haven't made one here in the US but have wanted to. Lucky tou! You must have had a fab time! Thanks for sharing!

  6. I was there on Friday and it was SO MUCH FUN!! I am wondering, however, how in the world I missed the COWBOY!!! Did NOT see him! Next year we are spending the night and going back a second day....I feel that I missed things! Is Cari not the CUTEST thing? I got my picture made with her too and tried not to act like a dork! lol We will have to meet up next year!

    Lou Cinda :)

  7. Love your CLF photos, I had to cancel my trip but posted photos that My Niece & Friend took.... I will be there Next Year, No Matter What!

  8. I was so sad that I had to miss it this year! But I love your pictures- so much inspiration!!! I still have notes of ideas from last year that I will never get around to!

  9. looks like you had a marvelous time - I was there too - so sorry we didn't meet - your photos are great!

  10. I'm glad you took so many photos, but... you're just gonna have to learn how to crop mine off at shoulder level. I look like a bloated pumpkin. Maybe that's because I am, but the world doesn't have to know. LOL I'm thinking next year we need to arrange a blogger meet up at the fair. So many were there and none of us knew.

  11. Oh my I wish I had know about this I would have loved to have been there! Thanks for sharing the photos...I love them.

  12. Looks like so much fun!!!! Thanks for sharing it at Feathered Nest Friday!!
