Laura and I drove to Stone Mountain, Ga., last weekend with her best friend Kristen to check out the Country Living Fair. Seven hours each way in the car? Totally worth it.

The fair was amazing. Vintage and handmade goods as far as the eye could see. Not to mention cooking and home demos (we got a kick out of Chip Wade from HGTV … and his jeans), and a cafe with delicious food made from recipes featured in the pages of the magazine.

In other words, heaven.

I took a boatload of photos (SUR-PRISE), so I’ll let them do the talking.

It couldn’t have been a more beautiful — and fun — day!

My new haircut is making me do all sorts of crazy things. Like surf Etsy shops for cute hair accessories. I think these pins would be darling on Dolly P.

Yes, you’re reading the blog of someone who named her haircut. Still friends?

I also love this, for when Dolly’s feeling fancy:

Or maybe this little lovely, for date night:

In other words, Dolly P and I have a new favorite Etsy shop: Paper Cakes.

And it’s not all hair stuff. There are home goods, like this funky vintage tea set, and jewelry that will make you smile, like this necklace. Oh, and these adorable pom-pom earrings.

I’m in trouble!

I blame Dolly.


The winner of the Moxie Kids giveaway is Jessica from The B Keeps Us Honest.
Congratulations, lucky lady! Happy shopping!!
