The Country Living Fair in my Backyard!!!!!!

The Country Living Fair will be at the Dutchess County  fairgrounds in Rhinebeck, NY., June 7-8-9, 213.  I could not miss the opportunity to join in the fun.  I was reading the editors letter in the  March issue of CL and Sarah Gray Miller was talking about The Country Living Fair coming to the Hudson Valley.  How exciting!!!

Come and join me and 150 other fabulous artisans for three days of pure Country Living.  Lots of lamps, lampshades, pendants, and more…..

Hope to see you.
