Country Living Fair- What I Found

The top thing on my list to find at the Country Living Fair this year was a chalkboard and my aunt spotted one almost right away! I am so happy that I was able to bring it home especially with only a $15 price tag! I told the ladies at the booth I bought it from that it was the only thing I was looking for and they were pretty happy for me. 

It literally fits perfectly in the spot I wanted to hang one! I love that I was able to get one with graphics on it too. The little train has animals and ABC's on it. 

 Isn't it so cute!? I don't have a lot of  purple in my house but.......

.....it is a two sided board and the other side is black! 
It had a screw on each side so it must have previously had a stand so that it could be flipped. 

I added some hardware at the top so that I could hang it and that way I can also flip it to either side. I think it looks great. I got it so that I could write bible verses on it that I want my son to learn. Also to add holiday sayings on as it will be one of the first things people see when they walk in our house. 

I also picked up another blue seltzer bottle to go with my collection, I now have 4, two with tops and two without. This one was only $15 too.

I picked up a $10 grab bag that has all sorts of vintage goodies in it. ribbon, ric rac, wrapping paper, appliques, cards, etc. 

I grabbed this one because of this cute little cat, I don't know what I am putting her on yet but she will be used!!

Lastly, we stopped at a thrift store on the way home and I grabbed this vintage tree skirt kit. It has snowmen and santas on it and it will be something to finish probably for next Christmas.

It was a great weekend with fun finds. I am already planning out next year because my country chic sis-in-law will be with us and she has never been there before. She is going to love everything!!

  1. Jess, love your finds. The chalkboard is great. I am going to have to put a Bible verse on my chalkboard by the front door. That would be a great place to write a different verse on each month. Thanks for sharing your finds!

    1. It's a great way to share the Word with family and everyone who walks in the door! Thanks!

  2. Great finds! That chalkboard is awesome. I've been wanting one similar to it. Thanks for sharing @ TTF.
