Despite the threat of storms, this weekend ended up being warm and dry for the Country Living Fair in Nashville!
I was included in a meet-up of Nashville influencers in the home/garden industry sponsored by Forest Home Media, so I had a bunch of fun people to hang out with!

I met the super-cute editor of Country Living Magazine, Rachel Hardage Barrett, as well as some other folks with the magazine.

I know you are DYING to know what treasures I scored at the Country Living Fair, right? I was completely besotted when I laid eyes on this pair of campaign dressers in Cari Cucksey of HGTV’s Cash and Cari booth.
They are painted in Hint of Mint, a beautiful color in Cari’s Chroma-Color paint line. These pieces and this color now sets in stone the direction of the paint makeover I’m doing this summer in my design office! I made sure to buy a pint of the paint so that I can tie in this color in a few other pieces in the room.

I also scored a one-of-a-kind necklace from jewelry artist, Lucy Farmer of Lucy’s Inspired.
I think I’m going to be wearing this A LOT, and now I’m wishing I had snagged one of her bracelets made from motorcycle license plates!

I also visited with Lucy Kelly of Bel Monili. I love her upcycled bracelets made from vintage earrings – I bought four of them from her a couple of years ago at Bella Vintage Marketplace. I was even wearing one that day! I love THIS idea of using a conversion chain to make a necklace out of a bracelet. Genius!
I had to get a photo with this vintage-inspired travel trailer, because owning one of these is a little pipe dream of mine . . .
I’m no camper, but I could sure decorate it cute as a button! It’s kinda like a grown-up dollhouse.
We all had so much fun. Thanks to all of you who came by and said “hey!” to me – it’s so great to meet my readers. If you made it to the Country Living Fair in Nashville, share your favorite find or vendor with us!
