Country Living Austin Dets!

I am so excited to be attending the first Texas Style Country Living this weekend. You know it'll be big if it's in Texas!! 

Speaking of big, I have big news... I am going to do a presentation on Saturday at 11:00 and signing books at 12:00. Your coming, right?

So here's what I'm going to do this year, since I won't have a booth I'll spend Friday combing the fair for vintage goodies to rehab with oilcloth, laminated cotton, and chalk cloth. I'll TWEET my way through the fair, so please follow me on Friday and hep me decide what I should buy up.@modernjune and follow #CLFair.

Then on Saturday I'll fix up my finds on the stage, it'll be my own little trash to treasure show. But wait, there's more, I'll even be raffling away a two of the projects to some lucky winners.

It'll be very strange to just go to shop and do a demo, I feel like a princess crafter or something a little less silly. How can I just go and enjoy myself and not be a vendor? We, (Junies and family) thought long and hard about attending the show with all our wares like we've done for the Ohio and Georgia CLFairs. Unfortunately, I just had to say no for this year, 7 months of home reno and life with a teen and a tween just took too much out of me this winter. Basically, my family would have mutinied.

Truly incredible shopping is the hallmark of the fair and it's better than ever this time -- an amazing, huge amount of antiques furniture, industrial and primitives, lots of artists and artisans, and the absolutely biggest selection of the cutest handcrafted jewelry you've ever seen. Trust us you won't find a better fair for mother's day gifts OR furnishing a home or apartment. AND there's lots to do in between shopping too!

See you at the fair or on Twitter this weekend,
