Fall decided to arrive exactly when I began to set up the tent on Thursday morning . . . in the cold rain. My dear friend, Bethany Grubb, from Antebellum Farmhouse came to help, too. We work so well together on shows and our product aesthetics are very complimentary . . . I really was sad that she could not do the show again this year. I am, however, looking forward to the winter fair in her Antebellum Farmhouse barn in December. Stay tuned for more information on that magical show, but get it on your calendar now for the first weekend in December.
Friday morning was "rise and shine" with the fabulous Meridith St. John. At the crack of dawn I picked her and her beautiful hydrangea boutiques up. Of course we sped through Starbucks first, then was on our way to the Ohio Historical Society grounds.
At 8:30 a.m. the Early Bird shoppers swooshed through and at 10 a.m. I made my way through the crowd to see the general admission shoppers lined at the door. I felt so blessed to be a part of a show where people lined up at the doors to enter. The wind factor aside, it was a great first day of the market.
Saturday was a perfect crisp Fall day and my mom joined me in the booth.
Sunday the paced slowed down a bit in the afternoon as the market was coming to an end.
Thank you to all who made it out to show your love of Country Living. And special thanks to Bethany Grubb, Meridith St.John, my momma, my husband, Cyndi Tawney, and my in-laws. Without you, I couldn't have made this happen.

Now, I'm not talking just painting and hanging new curtains, I'm talking a complete kitchen and bath update, INCLUDING all the plumbing. Yes, this vintage house needed it's pipes ripped out and updated with new plumbing. What a task! I am happy to say that we can now move on to the fun parts...like painting and hanging curtains.
But the fun must be postponed until after my next couple of shows.
In the meantime, I am gearing up for the Country Living Magazine Fair in Columbus, Ohio this September 13, 14, and 15th.
Last check in I was prepping for The Rural Society's Spring Sale in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. What a lovely working farm, and the staff is just wonderful. I always enjoy participating in this show. This was my only show this Spring and now I am fully focused on the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio in September.
Okay, maybe not fully focused . . . I have my daughter, which is my first love AND we just bought a cute little fixer-upper on the outskirts of Germantown, Ohio that needs my TLC. Here is a sneak peek at this little charmer.
