country living south - part trois

* * *

so after all the eye candy
design ideas

here's some shots of my booth
for those who did not make it to the show

i only had a single booth at this show,
but you because the park is so awesome...
and there is only so much level ground,
you get lots of extra space besides your 10' x 10'..
you can make it look much larger  - you just need to be creative ! 

views from my spot...

new item for me this year
silverware bells...pretty much gone the first day

* * *

another great thing about traveling to shows is hanging out with friends...

this year for the atlanta show,

i brought along my good friends

lucy from bel monili
krystal from green bubble gorgeous, and her cousin/friend/helper britney
and the ever faithful suellyn, my friend and helper.

we also get to see 'show friends' and 
meet 'internet friends'

i posted this pic after country living ohio:

and i got teased that it looked like cardboard cutouts..
(cari and haas from hgtv cash and cari show) 


when i told haas that, he insisted on this pic so there would be no doubt !

well...he is the muscle after all !

not to name drop,
but we really are friends with cari cucksey and her crew

we all went out to dinner friday night...
and had a blast !

krystal, brit, moi, suellyn
haas and sydnee

cari and vince

cari, brit, moi, lucy, haas
 brit and haas 
(yes maturity was running rampant
and perhaps so was the alcohol)

suelly, me, brit

cari, lucy

cari NOT posing.......

connie, lucy
got to meet connie,
lucy's friend from college..
local atlantain...

great girl..
a laugh a minute !

random couple who just kept ending up in our pictures. !

me & cari at the end of the night...can you say tired?

* * *

then onto saturday.....

i got to meet the 
'highly acclaimed, ever loved'
heather from

she's a blogger i met on line...
and we've been internet friends for quite a while now, 
but had never met in person !

kindred spirits to say the least !

Looks like you had so much fun, and your booth I would have been lost in it for hours.
Have a great weekend see you soon on and before my next JDA order :)
