Flashback Friday ~The Fair
Around this time of the year I start getting excited for the upcoming Western Washington Fair in Puyallup, WA. So how about a flashback to last year's fair.
Love to look at the animals, especially cows that stick out their tongue at me
The scones are a MUST have...warm and buttery and filled with raspberry jam MMMMMMMM.
I usually pass up the rides
And the games
And head straight for the Home Arts exhibits
And lets be honest...the food is a big draw
And this is one exhibit I always look forward to. The Farmer's Granges compete with these colorful displays featuring Washington produce
And my visit would not be complete with a tour of the floral exhibit
I always look forward to the display by a local, but nationally known dahlia dealer, Connells. The tuber business is now "retired" so I'm not so sure they will have a display this year. Keeping my fingers crossed though..they are still doing cut flowers so maybe!
So back to the present :-) Here are a couple of things blooming in my yard this week. Randy insisted on taking my pic in front of our monster lily to show how tall it is! Jack in the Bean Stalk high!
I'm so excited to show you my Blue Satin Rose of Sharon that's finally blooming. Its taken a couple of years for it to do anything. It REALLY is this color!
And finally....I don't often share crafts on my blog because, well, I am just not THAT crafty, but I did crochet a little baby sleeping bag/cocoon & hat with bear ears for a friend at work that's having a baby in a couple of weeks that I wanted to share. Jigs was none too amused! On a real baby the little bag can fit under his arms. Its a cute way to keep baby from kicking their blanky off!
Here's a close up of the hat.
If you have a flashback of any kind that you'd like to share please add your link below!
