County Fair by Daylight


The canned goods are my favorite exhibit.


A display of sweet embroidered linens. The sewing display in general was disappointing--mostly tie-dyed tees.


Complementary colors always work. Salsas and pepper sauces taken very seriously here. I saw men in business suits making cell phone calls to report on the judging of the hot canned items.


Style to spare.


A sweet-faced goat.


Empty is more interesting than full.


Concessions.




Richness.


Soft-faced rabbits.


Winners.


Daisy tries cotton candy.


Prizes.


My husband.

I was just fine and dandy not missing our fair until you showed all these pictures! What fun!
Canning seems to be pretty serious at our fair too, though I haven't seen and dressed up, cell toting business men. Of the 12 canned items I entered, 9 placed!

These pictures are fantastic...as always...but wow, these capture the spirit of a county fair incredibly well!

I've been gone the past week on vacation and have missed checking your blog. It's fun to catch up! :)

Anna,

Every now and then, something you post resonates with me. I repeat it to myself often in hopes of overcoming obstacles.

Since I'm a natural clutterbug, I have to remind myself that "elegance is restraint," something I picked up from your blog.

Now I've got another one: Empty is more interesting than full.

Thank you,
Jora
