  1. Hi Kelly
    I follow ( and love!) your blog! I have wanted to go to a Countyry Living Fair for a very long time and I would love to win the VIP tickets! I have never been to a large flea market/ of this magnitude! I don’t have very many in my neck of the woods and this one is just a couple of hours away from me. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    1. Kelly:
      I have been reading your posts for a while now and just love your insights and great ideas! I also, am a subscriber to Country Living and have wanted to go to the CL Fair for a long time! One of my friends still can’t believe I haven’t been since I absolutely love to repurpose things and paint primitive crafts! Several people have asked me if I plan to have a booth there eventually, but I really want to experience it first-hand to determine if it is right for me. Crazy, right? Thank you for the opportunity to win tickets!!

  2. That is Fabulous news. Your going to be great. What an honor. Can’t wait to hear all about it. Have a great time and tell everyone hello for me. I went last year but, because of my husbands work schedule we had to leave Sunday morning so I missed meeting everyone! Have an amazing time!
    Crying in my coffee–I can’t go this year–no way to get there!
