If you are in the area of Atlanta,GA. this October, treat yourself to the Country Living Fair!
I exhibited here last year and it was difficult
to stay in my booth, because it was so fantastic.
Wonderful food, decorating ideas and cooking personalities from Country Living Magazine. Plus wonderful booths full of antiques, folk art, REALLY good traditional art, authors and Illustrators ( including me), and a stunning atmosphere in the wonderful Stone Mountain Park.
I know I sound like an advertisement but I have a particular fondness for Country Living Magazine. I still have my old copies dating back from 1981. There was nothing else to compare at the time. ( except for Early American Life Magazine, also great) I was a young mother at the time, longing to live in one of those old houses that were a regular feature of the magazine. I learned how to can pears and peaches, collect the best antiques, do a tiny quilting stitch, wrap a turkey in puff pastry ( I still cook my Thanksgiving Turkey that way), plant bulbs and stencil a wall. Just a few of the tips I learned from a magazine that I all but wore to shreds by the end of the month.We did not have BLOGS back in those days. Magazines were it!
So, you can see why I must do participate in this fair, it's NOSTALGIC for me!
But it is also worth the effort, if YOU can attend. The dates are OCT. 21-23rd at Stone Mountain Park, Atlanta,Georgia. Check out the website:http://www.countryliving fair2011
See you at the fair!
