A little more CL

I had a few more photos to share of our Country Living “soiree” so I thought I would go ahead and share those…

This girl was a doll!  Personality and talent all over the place!  Her name is Molly and she and her husband, Brent are Barn Trash.


They make these fabulous pieces from doors!  Absolutely gorgeous stuff!  They are from Carlinville, Illinois and they were loving the South!  Well, what’s not to love ya’ll?


loved this coffee table and the top opened for storage….


Some more random shots….

Just in case you ran out of money….heaven forbid!






The end of a VERY long, but fun day….well, we still had to drive 3 hours home, and stop to eat, and stop at a Hobby Lobby….

and there are those PINK fingernails again…..sheesh!


This was a booth that Country Living had where you could go and get your picture made with some of your purchases, and they could, potentially, choose your photo to be in the magazine….well, I don’t look for that to happen as I don’t think our purchases were substantial enough….I did tell the little guy at the booth to not make me go back in there and buy a flippin armoire to haul out of there on my back so I can get my picture in Country Living!  Just sayin’…

Booth 2

The “silly” shot…


I will take some photos of my “stuff” as it is displayed about my humble abode and get those posted….

Than you for stopping by and have a GREAT week!!


  1. Love the ATM machine!!! They really do think of everything!

    Forget Country Living magazine, you should be in Glamour! You look beautiful!


  2. That looks like a great trip, would love to go sometime.

  3. I have decided I think I want to go to this next year! I can't wait to see what you purchased!


  4. Great lamp, Lou Cinda! I am definitely going next year! That picture with the ATM surrounded by woods is pretty funny. Well, they might pick you. I think you are both showing off something small and something fairly big, so it shows there is something for everyone there.

  5. Looks like a fun trip! That's a lot of eye candy and I'll be anxious to see what went home with you!

  6. Looks like a fun place...I would have scooped that cute sheep tray so fast...

  7. Lou Cinda,
    You two ladies were a hoot!!! So darn cute! Thanks for sharing all your great finds...can't wait to see them on your blog!

  8. Oh, your pictures make me wish I was headed back there again this weekend! Can't wait until next year, can you??? :)

    Great pictures! Can't wait to see how you display all your fabulous finds!

  9. Love the lamp in your hand there and I think the "silly picture" would be great in the magazine! Love both of your nail polish btw!
    Can't wait to you post about your purchases!

  10. So much great stuff at this Soiree...and the natural setting was a perfect no doubt had a fabulous time and can't wait to see all of your treasures on display. All the best,


  11. Looks like a fun trip! Looking forward to seeing your purchases.

    We've visited in Carlinville...several years ago. If and when we go again I'd like to look up Barn Trash...

    Blessings...Betty @ Country Charm

  12. What a great trip! Looks like fun. And the atm machine takes the cake! lol

  13. My that FUNNY shot!!


  14. The ATM cracks me up! They were really trying to be "helpful".....LOL
    Enjoying your blog! Thanks for visiting mine! Hugs and Tweets!

  15. Good morning LouCinda... Oh my look so cute and HAPPY! Shopping will do that to a chickie, won't it? And, I think my fingernails are the exact same color, except mine are VERY short.... I can't get the darn things to grow.... I wish we'd have a great Country Living sale around here darn it. So glad you had such a great time.

    Huggies and lovies,

    PS.........giveaway on my blog...... ;-)

  16. Love the new look! Thanx so much for your kind words and prayers. I covet them both.
    You are a very sweet lady :)

  17. Just found your wonderful blog and wanted to say thanks so much for posting the photo of my booth at Country Living Fair South!! I really enjoyed re-visiting the show through your photos !(I didn't really have time to get out and shop much)

  18. Now, you two are certainly cute enough to make the cover! I mean really! You are both adorable!

    And so is your new friend from Illinois! She does make cool stuff, and she looks like fun!

    And I keep seeing things all over the place that I want to buy. Maybe I'll haul Vannah up there next year! ;-)

    Love you...



  19. And the pain just continues lol!....Do you know how badly I want to reach my little grubbibn' hand right into my puter screen and grab something out?! *winks* Starting with that red lamp in your hand! Me wanty that one Lou Cinda! And the tray with the sheep....and the demihohns...and the metal baskets...You get the picture *winks*
    I think Country Living should definitely include the two of you beautiful ladies in their edition!
    Oh and I'm so glad you liked my globes de mariee. Really you've never seen them before? You know how sometimes you actually are seeing things but they don't quite register until you know more about them? And then you start to see them all over. I bet this will be like that *winks* Let me know if you do K? Vanna

  20. Sweetheart, you have made me want to plan a trip to the next CL fair! I would have been right there with you, drooling over the gorgeous stuff and fighting over bargains. Thank you for taking us along with you!!

  21. I was there Saturday and Sunday! Wasn't it such a wonderful event! Can't wait until next year - so much for the eye to behold!

  22. Wow--what a fun girls day! I can't wait to get a look at all of the goodies you brought back. It sounds like it was so much fun and I'm betting included lots of giggling :).

  23. Oh, my gosh! That looked like GREAT fun! I wanta go with you next time!!! I love that the merchandise was set up amongst the trees. Awesome idea!
