**Country Living Fair ~ CHICAGO 2006**

In the Fall of 2006, Country Living hosted their Fall Fair in Chicago, at the Botanic Gardens, -Glencoe, Illinois...  Living just a shy 2 hours from that location ~ I most certainly was not going to miss this event!!!  The attendance was overwhelming ~ crowded beyond belief...  This event is now hosted in both OHIO & GEORGIA ...

Just Fab Vignettes...


I remember not knowing what to expect...  It felt like shopping a good FLEA MARKET!*!*!


Fall decor abounded...


This is a FaVoRiTe Display that I now put my own twist to ~ using summer's hanging planters...
"Just FaB" - Idea...  Works as well with Christmas Greens and Ornaments...



This is what I came home with & enjoyed for years... 
YET ANOTHER ITEM ~ I eventually SOLD on my Ebay Site...
(I mostly sell on Ebay come November -March)
