A Blue Ribbon ~ Love-A-Fair

The NC State Fair is going on this week here in Raleigh and on Thursday hubby and I and my sister and her husband spent the day enjoying everything there is to enjoy at the fair!



And...one of the great things about this year's fair is that Galen and I won the first place Blue Ribbon! (we kid each other...I say it was my artwork, he says it was his woodworking). Either way, we won. The "Carnivale" marble roller ~ here it is ~




I took quite a few photos during the day but limited myself so as not to bore you.



We had beautiful fall weather, a little on the chilly side.










My sister and I (below)...we like to sit on this huge adirondack chair in the garden every year and have our picture taken.




Hope you enjoyed the fair photos.



Have a great weekend!

Hooray and congratulations for coming in first place. You two make a good team.
Love your pictures from the state fair. My son and his girlfriend are going tomorrow. We are heading to Raleigh this weekend for a hockey tournament. I'd love to be able to sneak to the fair too. Not sure if there will be time to do it all.

I knew you guys were going to get the blue ribbon!! Congrats! It looks like a fun fair. I love that big chair. It reminds me of Laugh In and Lily Tomlim portraying Edith Ann....
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs,

Congrats to you and hubby !!!
Looks like a fun State Fair.


hmmmm... did you ever think of making note cards for sharing seeds. Like seeds/pods on them. I like sending seeds out taped inside cards I've made but I'm just not as creative as you.

Congratulations on your Blue Ribbon! It is so well deserved as both you and Galen did a wonderful job on making the marble catcher.

I loved the photo of you and your sister in the big chair and all the funny carved pumpkins at the fair.

Congratulations on your win at the fair. I didn't get a first this year, just four seconds-I will have to try harder!
