Are You Sick of the Country Living Fair Yet?

Funny redware bowls.



There was a lot of really unique clothing for sale and those booths were packed.


I know a few people who I could have bought this sign for.



For the cowgirl in all of us! Hey, I have a pair of cowgirl boots!


More fun furniture.


What a cool look.


Love these!



This is where they do all of the cooking demonstrations.


Green cream.


What a perfect setting for a fair.


Cute little areas for dining are set up everywhere.


You can even eat under a wisteria covered pergola.


Ghost gourds in the trees.


Lots of pumpkins were offered.


Another cute place to eat.


I loved this booth. By using black scarecrows and cutouts and black mulch, they were able to create the perfect Halloween look.


They even created a haunted house exterior. How creative. The name of the booth: Too Far Gone


I might have to hunt down black mulch!

Nope, not tired yet, this event requires strength training (on my part) to explore all of it, I might just have to take a trip to see this in person. I had fun going through some of your older posts, only problem is now I am craving those chili dogs and macaroni salad! oh, and piece of that caramel apple pie :) xo

If you get a goat you can acquire black mulch. Bwahahaha

I'm not tired of them yet,, the chances of me ever seeing anything like this are slim to none so I really enjoy this.Its more personal a take on it than the magazine,, much more colorful and interesting commentary as well,

Hi there,

Thanks to Anna’s great Practical Magic blog party website I know that you are taking part in the event. I have pondered how to participate and thought it would be neat to post anonymously people’s thoughts and/or secrets regarding the movie. Sites which inspired me are:

Post Secret
Walt Disney Confessions

Those thoughts or secrets could e.g. be “I have already watched the movie 1,000 times,” “I wish I had a sister like Gilly,” “The aunts’ house is my dream house,” “I have dreamt about Jimmy” etc. Anything which comes to your mind when you think of “Practical Magic.”

If you feel like helping me out, be sure to send me your thought/secret as soon as possible at swappinghowdies@yahoo.de. Of course, I handle each “confession” anonymously. And – please nothing x-rated!

Greetings from Germany,
Birgit

Those redware bowls in the first photo would make terrific popcorn bowls.

I have loved seeing all these pictures! I am especially fond of all the colorful petticoats in one of those pictures!

We have black mulch and I love it. What a cool booth with the black cutouts!

Sugar said...

The booth with the cowboy boots is where I bought my arm warmers and train case, but somehow I did not get a good photo of the booth. You got a great one. :)

TARYTERRE said...

I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Did you get a card with contact information from the booth with the face bowls? I LOVE them.

Lois said...

You have inspired me to search out my own country fairs here in southern Ontario.

Marigold said...

Nope, not tired. Just dying to see what you came home with! :)

Amy said...

I love the funky redware bowls and other Halloween goodies. The fair looks like so much fun, I wish I was there.

Lizz Clements said...

That's so idyllic. I wish I could go. Too far for me, though.

Charlie said...

I have a request of showing the most popular pages of the prop book like:

Spiritus
Obliviosus Imemor

Would love to see them
