Scenes from a far...oops, I mean from a Fair

Survived my first day of the Fair and actually had a fun and interesting day (click on pic to see details) we go..

Alex with his "I'm gonna make you stand still if it kills both of us" look...he placed 4th

Raquel beaming with confidence...she placed 6th

Textile Art...a
couple of my favorites

Some amazing wood creations

And for all you Mermaid lovers

Lil' Lulu..this one's for you

All made from Felt...

You couldn't pay me enough to get on this Ferris wheel

A bunny and some Sunflowers

Look what we saw...I swear, it was purely

and this just made us laugh...needless to say, we DID NOT eat here

...and that's all folks....I'm moo~ving on...I'm just sayin'


  1. Oh the fair...ours is coming next month and the same things to be had such as friend Snickers bars, fried ice cream and other scary treats!!! I LOVE THE ANIMALS THE BEST and especially visiting the BUNNIES! Have a glorious weekend my friend. Anita

  2. I could just hug you for taking the mermaid pics for meeeeeeee! How awesome were they?!!?!!

    Congrats to Raquel!!

    I love the picture of you with the sunflowers :)


  3. Hey Bunny!

    What a great day at the fair!
    I love the White Rabbit quilt, and the mermaids just rock..always say that I have an Early Canadian Mermaild bathroom..been collecting (mostly little ones) for years...
    It's a good thing you didn't eat one of those Bypasses, and then go on the Ferris could have made seagulls look like amateurs!♥

  4. I love the fair! You and the happy flowers make a great pic...glad you had fun.

  5. Love the legs, propped up in the bathtub!

  6. i love the fair too, ours isn't until mid Aug. which is crazy because it always gets rained on. So glad you had fun. I know what you mean re the ferris wheel; it goes backwards or something really wrong and sickening dosn't it. I'll do the tilt-a-whirl tho.
    Nice mermaids and love the sunflowers and Bunny!

  7. Oh Bunny-looks like fun! I haven't been at a real fair in so long. Thanks for the pics.

    Congratulations to Raquel and Alex! Nice pictures. Looks like you all had fun. I have not been to the fair in many years. I love the Bunny and sunflower picture. You couldn't pay me enough to get on ANY of those rides. LOL I'll take that rocking chair, please. Thanks, for sharing your day at the fair. Hugs

  9. What a FANTASTIC pic of Raquel and her beau!
    I hope you blow that up and frame it!

  10. It looks like so much fun. Glad you had fun your first day.

  11. Oh, it's nice to see all their hard work paying off! I know it's a huge commitment for them and you must be so proud!
    I love all the extras from the fair - the needlework and fiber work is amazing!

  12. Oh how fun! Congrats to Raquel!
    I think that deep fried butter was at the Texas Fair at the cotton bowl too. It must make the rounds. Did not go but heard about it on the news. I do not know who would eat that stuff. Although we did try a deep fried oreo in Vegas one year. YUK!

  14. Looks like SO much fun!
    I love county and State fairs! :-)

    Have a wonderful Friday!

  15. Wow Bunny these are great pictures and love the one of you as a mermaid. haha I love mermaids!
    What a great place to have a fair. Looks like a lot of fun. That Heart Attach cafe is too funny.
    Just had to check on you and thank you for always keeping me going these last few months.
    So glad we met

  16. I have been amused by your photographs here. The chocolate covered bacon and butter (eek)made me cringe a little, I thought these kind of things only happened in Scotland (deep fried mars bars), but obviously not.

    The felted characters were marvellous too.
    Thank you so much for sharing.


Go 'head...say it already!
