Back to the Fair

 It's always a happy day when I find my first pumpkins of the year.

 My daughter came home for a visit so The Blog Tech and I took her back to the fair.

 She couldn't believe how cute the entire festival was and how they laid it out like a little village.

 The shops were just opening when we arrived.

 We found some more carved tree trunks.

 This would be such a fun project to do with an old trunk.  I got rid of all of my chisels just last year.


 My daughter ate some of the homemade potato chips with malt vinegar.

 We tried the halushki too.

 The Blog Tech got his BBQ'd pulled pork parfait and I let him eat the whole thing this time.

 He loves his parfait!
 We were talking about the halushki not being very good.

 He thought that the women that sold it to us heard him so he gobbled it with a smile on his face.

 I bought the basket I wanted last weekend.

 And another one too.  This one is called a Cape Codder.

 They have wooden bottoms and the workmanship is very high quality.

 The big basket is called a cottoner and is meant to hold textiles. I will put my wool in it.

 I just love baskets.

 These are very sturdy and will wear well.

 My new witch.

 She is pinching a spider to drop in her cauldron.

She has a nice face too.
