Fair thee well!


Last week I mentioned that the county fair was in full swing in my hometown and this past Friday, I was able to attend! It was everything I had hoped for and then some! There is something so special about revisiting events that you enjoyed as a child and feeling transported back in time. Of course it helped to have my partner in crime, the southern beau, accompany me. Hope you don’t mind that this post is a little image heavy, but I wanted to share!


{the agriculture stuff is always my favorite part…i wish all these gorgeous cans were going in my cellar}



{prize winning ‘maters…i’m trying not to be jealous since my tomato plants have yielded nothing this year}



{blue ribbon tobacco crop}



{this fella is a champ!}



{such a sweet face…redheads hold a special place in my heart}



{not sure this little guy was too happy having his picture taken with me}



{last shot of the fair…until next year!}

What excitement did you fine folks discover this weekend?


  1. Ohhhh LOVE your pictures!!!!! Especially that last one! So pretty. :) I am itching to go to the fair!!!!! I still need to figure out when my town's is.

    This weekend i visited a friend and my husband and I got a hot tub moved into our screened in porch! :)

  2. Love your blog! Found you on Southern Mommas. Following you now.

  3. I went to the Redskins game and out to lunch in Old Town Alexandria. I need to find out when the fairs are going to be in my area!

  4. Oh my goodness. Those pictures bring back so many memories... except for the tobacco. I don't think I've ever seen that at a fair here. Your pictures are amazing.

  5. The first picture is such a classic small town fair photo that it's almost too good to be true! It looks like you had a lot of fun!

  6. I love the agriculture stuff at the fair as well. We are going to attend the KY state fair coming up soon and I am looking forward to the goats and sheep. We ran errands, shopped at the farmers market and hung out at our pool this weekend. Pretty mellow, but nice!

  7. Absolutely love your fair pictures! They are perfect and really capture the true "feeling" of a county fair! glad you had fun :)

  8. I love fairs! My parents always took us to this same one each summer. I tried to go back and do all of the rides with my husband (then my fiance), but ended up so nauseated that we cut it short, ha ha! I've heard that there are a lot of ag fairs in NZ, so I'm excited to check them out :-)

  9. I love your blog especially Mr. Rooster who was so regal!!!!!

  10. Your picture is as close to some good ol' homegrown tomatoes as I've been this summer. Remind me not to buy my plants from the local high school horticulture club next year. :<(

  11. Oh Girl!!! This looks like so much fun and I am so jealous! I'll just pretend I was there with you-love me some agriculture!! xoxoxo

  12. what fun!!! love all your pictures - you captured the excitement and bustle of activity perfectly!


Lay it on me y'all!
