At the county fair

At the county fair, Hubby moved like a special ops guy (he'd like that description) through the displays and straight to Madam Pig.  Before I knew it, he was back at my side. "Second," he said.

Yes, it seems our dear friend Humpty Dumpty trumped the piggies and ran off with First Place.  Doesn't he look pleased with himself!?  (You don't suppose it'll all go to his head, do you?)

And my Indoor Hopscotch got Fourth Place in the Toys category.

I entered some of the clothes I made over the past year (here, here and here) and received ribbons on two of them. I was delighted to see that there was a lot more competition in the Clothes category this year! Last year I won first, second, and third but there were only a few other entries and most of them were aprons.

But the best fun of all was getting the Committee's Choice Ribbon for Madam Pig and her piglets!  It turns out they did charm the judges after all!

Tomorrow I'll show you some other people's entries that caught my eye.


  1. Congratulations on your ribbons. You are so creative. I think the mama pig and her piglets are so cute!

  2. Congratulations! Your pig and piglets are so cute. I always like it when there are many entries in the Hobbies/Home Arts section of the fair too. It's so fun to look at. Our family is in the midst of preparing for our Agricutural Fair too.

  3. Every ribbon well deserved. Bravo you!

    Committee's Choice ribbon for Madam Pig and her piglets! That's bigger than first place any ole day!
