Country Living Fair 2010 ~ Earth Angels

As promised...a little bit more about the Country Living Fair in Columbus Ohio, 2010!

I can honestly say I enjoyed every booth at the fair. Such a eye-catching displays with wonderful items!

The Earth Angels booth had to be the biggest tent at that fair. If you love whimsy this is the place you wanted to be! As you can see, it was quite popular!

Colorful artwork.

Wonderfully repurposed vintage items. So much that my husband and I couldn't take pictures of it all. There was beautifully recycled jewelry that made my heart go pitter-patter, sweet figurines, so much!

Also housed under this tent was the author of "Collecting Handkerchiefs," Rosanna Mihalick. As a linen lover and a hanky collector it was so exciting to meet her. She had the best whimsical collection of handkerchiefs that I've ever seen in one place. All for sale along with some great States hankies.

In addition to her amazing hankies, Rosanna also had gorgeous vintage quilts to sell.

Rosanna gave a workshop on Saturday "Living with and Loving Antique Linens." My biggest regret of my trip was missing this seminar! Our plan was to shop the Heart of Ohio Antique Mall in the morning and make it back to the fair in time. Unfortunately I got completely side tracked at the mall (the size is amazing - more on that to come!) I'm so hoping she'll be speaking next year. I'm scheduling in an extra day!

I have more to share so please stop back!
