Country Living Fair - Nashville | Homespun by Laura

A Rainy Weekend at the Country Living Fair

For the first time ever, my mom and I took a trip together over the weekend, just the two of us.  A few months ago, I asked her if she’d like to go to Nashville for the Country Living Fair, and she agreed.

An Afternoon in Waco, Texas

 Like millions of other people, I’ve watched Fixer Upper since its first season three years ago.  I love Chip’s crazy antics, Jo’s method of mixing old and new to create beautiful, homey spaces, and Clint’s amazing reclaimed furniture pieces.  If given the opportunity, I’d move to Waco and work for either company in just about any capacity.  That won’t ever happen, but recently I got as close as I’ll ever get.

Desert Shirt Refashion

A green and white striped shirt hung in the refashion closet since I bought it for a dollar over three years ago.  It finally made its way back onto my radar recently when I moved my sewing room into the new office, and I decided to refashion it and wear it on our back roads cross-country road trip.

Week 7 of the Doodle project is long since over…but it’s been busy lately, so I’m late in sharing.

A couple weeks ago, we hit the road and headed to Greenville, SC so I could attend the Maker Fest at the Children’s Museum of the Upstate.  It was my first time going to any kind of maker event or craft market, and spent a lot of time preparing for the event in the weeks leading up to it.  My Doodling suffered as a result, but some Doodling is better than no Doodling!  Here’s what I was able to do in Week 7.

Daily Doodle: Week 6

Well, I’m a week late in posting Week 6’s Doodles, so it’s time to catch up!  The focus of the series of Doodles I did this week was a view of the Central Park Boating Lake with the skyline of Central Park South in the background.  I took the photo during a bike ride through Central Park on our trip to NYC in August, and it made it onto my list of pictures I’d like to recreate in my Paint My Vacation series.
