"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Wrap Up of the County Fair

Here are some photos of things I entered this year.
The dino mobile.
Two gourd bowls~one painted Talavera style the other brown.\

Last year's citrus wreath repurposed turquoise.

The bead wire art menorah, and the NM hand thrown relief.
I have shared sneak peaks to these, they are recycled Pringles cans
made into a chess set for when the Grands get a bit older.

Canned and dried foods.  I won the grand champion ribbon~top
center for my Pumpkin Pie fruit leather.
I have three items in this photo, the flowers, the sheep, and the trio of animals
drawn and attached to a turquoise stick.
I entered my painting in the Fine Arts division and received a 5th place
My potted plants, the coleus, the spider plant and the thyme in the 
pot with the black pattern on it.
My petunias that survived the hail storm earned a first place ribbon.
All the herbs aside from the jar on the far right are mine.
Here are the ribbons~

I love the county fair and how things I make, grow, or cook are things I can share.  I am already thinking about next year!!!

I love seeing the posts about the fair...it's like a life-line to what my life was, what I want it to be again. I ADORE the dino-mobile and the Pringles-can chess set (I may steal that idea....)!
Thank you for sharing!
