On Saturday, I was able to meet up with a group of DIY bloggers from the Atlanta area. We met with some other members of Hometalk and Ben Ashby, the editor in chief of Folk magazine, to attend the Country Living Fair at Stone Mountain Park. It was a blast! I loved meeting so many writers of blogs I have been following.
Thank you to Beth at Unskinny Boppy for this group shot!
My friend, Erin, and I had a blast talking with these other bloggers and walking all through the woods to see the amazing vendor booths.
I have been to a lot of art festivals, but I think this is my new favorite one! I loved how the booths were throughout the woods, and they were not right on top of each other in a small 8×8 space. They were able to spread out. This left room for more mingling and better viewing, without feeling cramped and rushed (as a lot of crowed art shows feel).
Here are a few things that caught my attention:
I loved those sweet bird pillows and ottoman. The balance of complimentary colors and prints just pop! Color always draws my attention…
Erin and I decided my sense of home decor might be considered Bohemian. It is kind of the “hippie” or “gypsy” at heart look. There is LOTS of color and mixtures of different art, textures, and vintage with unusual objects in the Bohemian style. I think that describes my house in a lot of ways.
I kept being wowed by the extravagant ways that the vendors displayed their art. It was really impressive and an art in itself!
Our blogger group got a private demonstration from Rust-oleum on their new paint for tiles.
It was so fun learning about this new paint and getting to try it out!
It really looked great, and I am pretty sure we are going to try it in our bathroom on our tile half wall! What a quick and cheaper way to cover up the 50′s style tile work in there!
Rust-oleum gave us each a pretty amazing swag bag! I was so excited! I can’t wait to use this weathered gray stain I received! Thank you so much Rust-oleum!
Other than my free stuff and lunch purchase, I don’t know how I only left with this sweet little purchase…
There is nothing like local Georgia honey!
I had such a great time at the Country Living Fair. I think it will be a new annual tradition to attend. I can’t wait to go again next year!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Have you ever been to this great fair?
