i wanted to share with ya’ll a few of the things i purchased at this year’s country living fair. original post here. i put ashley & savannah on lookout for some antlers, sans fur of course. one the ones i found had the cutest price tag on it, so in honor of christmas eve, the “24” will stay on for a little while.i didn’t purchase a piece of art from one of my most favorite booths/artists, jennifer lanne. i had a budget that i was sticking with this year. i have a small 6×6 print and i have a 12×12 of the horse shown here. i’m hoping to save up and purchase a larger piece on my next purchase from her, just not this past week. i wanted to show the little detail of the velvet trim on my print from last year though. love it!my big score that i was thrilled to find was a large doughbowl. i have a primitive rectangular size that my antique collecting aunt & uncle gave me years ago-it’s huge. and awesome. i nearly flipped when i saw this fantastic round shape and it’s light patina. when i asked the dealer to tell me a little bit about it, he shared that he was from Germany. his doughbowls were from antique shopping in France and Hungary. ok. sold. you can’t get a great size perspective of mine. he had two. one was ginormous and really would be too much for my table, but this one is huge yet doesn’t overpower my table.
i sprayed my pine cones with gold & silver paint a couple years ago & that’s what’s currently hanging out in there.
the other booth that we had a big time in was that of texas artist, mary gregory. mary’s work is just beautiful! i purchased a couple pillows and a 24×24 canvas. after heading over to link to her site, i’ve found a few more pieces i might need to add to my collection. i’m going to use my pillows out of my covered porch and trade them out seasonally.i picked up a few other small things here & there…& i’ve already shared about the jacket 😉
for those of you who asked about the little silver bowl filled with tiny marshmallows in this post, here’s the scoop-kraft mini’s, found at my local grocery store.
alrighty ya’ll, heading out to vote!
(ps, thank you for all the prayers and concerns about madison)
