What did we Buy?

As I shared earlier this week, I spent last Friday with friends at the Country Living Fair.  I gathered tons of inspiration and a few gems I couldn’t live without.  So did my gal pals.

Here is a sampling of our shopping spree:

It’s a dough bowl!  It is huge and beautiful!  Ever since I spotted one of these on Stories of A House, I have wanted one.  My aunt from England has one and my brother-in-law spotted one at auction for $150.  My baby was $85 and it is all mine.

Suzanne and Amanda each went home with one.

This is what it looks like for the time being:

Debra made one purchase and absolutely loves it.  It is so hard to find art, so when you love it, you gotta nab it.

Christy was on a tight budget this year (that statement oozes sarcasm).  She fell in love with many lovelies that are now in her home:

My dough bowl is by far my prized possession, but I did find a few other things to bring home.

This feed sack has a lining.  It is almost stiff and can be used as a rug or on the wall.  Marji also got one and plans to use it at her back door.

I loved the handmade bags.  Suzanne, Amanda and I each found unique ones to don.

I have to end with a picture of Debra.Columbus-20110916-00057 

I also took away too many ideas, tons of pictures and lots of inspiration.

Have a great weekend!

Your friend Debra is a very fine looking specimen of woman with great style and amazing posture. Plus she has good taste in art. I bet she's intelligent and a pleasant companion. I mean, just from looking at the photo, that's what I would think.
