CL Fair Sneak Peek.

The Country Living Fair was just breathtaking.

I took pretty many pictures– here are a few to “wet your appetite” as it were. 🙂

So many gorgeous booths like above. I seriously haven`t even been inspired to make my own crafty things with my own hands yet– since I`ve been home.

I think I`m still reeling from being WAY too over inspired…

Above, a DARLING vendor that my sisters bought pretty much from. She was a darling character and loved to hear our ideas for things we bought from her.

Having it in the fall– AND in the picturesque Ohio Village just made it Mmmmmmmm…

One of the darling things I held to buybut then didn`t .

I loved this, because my favorite word in the whole world is, gracious.

Because it`s something I have always wanted to be.

What`s funny about that– is recently I came to realize my NAME, Jeanette, means Gracious Gift of God. That was really meaningful to me.

And also my name is French. And. I happen to really like the style of the French Inspired… How ironic. 🙂

If you want to hear one further tidbit about my name, it`s all free, the name Jeanette`s popularity, has rapidly been plummeting for the last, oh, 20 years or so.

In summery, not a cool name, but still ‘cool’ to me. 🙂

One of the Ohio Village little home fronts.

Booths full of all kinds of baubles.

Gorgeous Fall Pumpkin/Gourd display.

Joy, Me and Julana.

~A really special weekend for us in so many ways.

Met up with these pretty ladies!

Lafonda, my sister Joy`s sister in law– and my good friend, Shelly!

Was fun to run into them, and jabber in awe together. haha

What a pretty booth… I think I took this picture because of the garland, above.

Cute booth, we each bought a few things from.

The man that was tending this booth was very chatty, and wet with sweat. He also had kicked his running shoes off, and his toenails were long and yellow. Made for some interesting observations, while chatting. 🙂

And on that note I leave you.

    here i am,
    all happily reading your words and pictures,
    {yes. i read pictures}
    enjoying all the free information about your name
    thinking how meaningful it is,
    how it really fits you,
    and how i don’t know ANY cindys
    younger than 35-40.
    and how i always thought that cindy is a GREAT name
    for a truck stop waitress. sigh.
    Gracious sounds so much better than…
    someone who says,”hiya honey! are ya havin the meatloaf special?”

    BUT, it does mean reflector of light.
    which IS exactly what i want to do
    and WHO i want to be!
    there. lots of info from me. no extra charge.

    so…anyway…happily reading…
    and then. gag. sweat and yellow toenails.
    thanks so much jenny. oh gracious one.
    all that beauty…and now i have wet and yellow in my head!
    HaPpY WedNesDaY to you too!!!
