Since the children are on their own, I have had even more time to create more than needed foods and homespun crafts and have been able to create pieces to decorate the home.
Here is a sneak peak into some of the items I am going to enter this year.
Fruit Leather...it is a delightful leather and I love this flavor.
A bit of New Mexico in this one.
A bag to carry books.
Something to keep my hands cool near hot hot hot.
An old window brings the mountain home.
Road Runner run Wiley Coyote is on his way.
Dino dino dinos every so cute!
This is something recycled from last year. Once was
bright orange, yellow, and green has taken on a new color.
This is another recycled project someone needed to
drink a wee bit of cervesa and I needed to drink a wee
bit of bottled soda.
I was inspired by marigolds for this piece.
My mountains on canvas this time.
Chalk pastel flowers with a frame made from old lattice.
Baaaaaa I have some wool.
This may be granola but it has a sneaky yum ingredient~pumpkin!
Pickled peppers with some dried strawberries.
Gourds painted like bowls.
One more week to go before turning in the items for the fair~and I can't wait. I know that I would not have been as creative or artistic had we not moved to the farm. Both Bill and I were challenged to dig deep and make many things from nothing. We learned how to look at things differently. That is why the County Fair means so much to be. I can share a bit of the journey and although most will never know the back story I know it.
Thanks for visiting and having a sneak peek with me!
