The Fair was FAB!

This year's "Country Living Fair" was a wonderfully huge and fabulous event. I am so thrilled that we were able to once again host our "Artists' Showcase Tent" in a premier location on the grounds of the Ohio Historic Village.

Here are some of my fave shots...more have been included in the recently posted album on Facebook.

Extra exciting tid-bits from the event: Laurie Meseroll and Jennifer Lanne were both taped for a PBS episode of "LifeStyles with Rebecca Ray", Dara DiMagno was filmed by the Country Living staff in conjunction with her promotion of sponsor Gorilla Glue, and I got to go inside the "Oscar Mayer Wienermobile" (this really impressed my kids!)
A BIG "thanks" to all who made the event not only possible, but also a huge success. Leslie McCabe, Debbee Thibault, Dara DiMagno and my big sister and textile expert, Roseanna Mihalick, each did a super job at their demos and seminars. And, artists working in our Demo Tent were utterly inspiring -- thanks go to Pat Murphy, Letty Worley, Laurie Meseroll, Jill Wiener, and Jody Battaglia for sharing their know-how.

And a truckload of gratitude to my wonderful staff: Michelle Hodge, Sue Parker and Shannon McSwegan...and cheers to my young helpers Sophie Brake and Dakota Roberts -- thank you all. And thanks to our pal Linda Morrow!!! Oh, and a VERY special thanks to Mother Nature who cooperated fully this time around!

We all hope to see you all there next year! And now back to getting ready for the 2nd Annual BARN SALE we'll be hosting this weekend in Warwick...

We hope to see you Saturday, 9/26 at the Warwick Antique Barn for bargains vintage goodies and more treats...

What a fabulous time!!! I'm so envious. I'm glad the weather cooperated. Love those uber-cool pirate boots you're sporting there. What a swashbuckling babe you are.

Well done, Miss J.
