ribbon report!

Yay, the county fair was great fun!

We enjoyed eating the tasty food, seeing the adorable Nubian goats, (I really "need" some of those!) and watching the kids laugh as they rode the rides. A county fair is a simple country pleasure I never tire of.

The official ribbon report is...
(drum roll, please)

6, 1st place blue ribbons
7, 2nd place red ribbons

Sweet Girl took 1st place for her artwork and a vintage apron her Grammy gave her...she was so happy! And both she and Little Man received 2nd place ribbons for their baked goodies.

I submitted photos, canned and baked goods, along with a
Knotwork Nine-Patch quilt. The quilt is over 90 years old and was given to us many years ago by my mother-in-law. She was so tickled to hear it took first place in the heritage quilts class!

We all had a terrific time and by night's end, we were worn out. This weekend we'll bring home our entries, ribbons, and checks...the kids are already plotting and planning on how to spend their prize money.

Now, lest you be too impressed with our winnings, remember,
this is a small county fair...
First place will get you $3.00, and second place $2.00,  
but hey, when you're young, that's enough to stir up
some excitement!


  1. Congratulations to all of you! Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I can't wait for our fall fairs!

  2. Sounds like loads of fun; congrats on all of your wins!


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!
