A Day at the Fair.

The day was picture perfect in every way. Temps in the 60s, sun shining all around us, crowds of happy people and a friend to share it all with. Dawn and I had such a good time!

We had to wait in this line to get in but not too long. It went rather quickly in fact.

Our first stop was the Country Living General Store. It was beautifully decorated.

Everything about this quilt is gorgeous- the colors, the pattern, the setting. Uh-huh. It's pretty sweet.

Beautiful Autumn-colored gourds piled in a wagon.

Gourds were everywhere, even on this cute stand!

There is such beautiful simplicity about these pumpkins stacked in a chair.

If there are chickens, I will photograph them. Even if they're fake chickens.

This sweet girl was at the first booth we came to after the CL pavilion. She makes these gorgeous paper wreaths sitting at her breakfast table. They are so elegant.

A ruffled heart pillow and a fab ruffly purse behind it. Oh. So. Cute.

Darling pumpkins filled a giant Longaberger basket. There were even basket making demonstrations going on, from splitting to weaving. Fascinating.

Just a few more of the lovelies that were on view-

 old handwriting in a frame,
 and a creepy doll head/stand thingy used to hold some pretty cool jewelry.

British subway (tube) signs.

Galvanized wind turbines rusted to perfection and made into light fixtures. Want.

Tiny little pillows for tiny little heads to lay upon. Night, night, sleep tight........

And this was just the first area we walked through! Really.
There's loads more photos waiting to be shared. I just need time to get them all on here. I'm thinking that I have about two or three more posts worth of pics of fascinating things to show you. And, don't forget to visit Dawn's blog to see the photos that she took. Some of them might be similar to mine as we had a tendency to say, "Oh, my gosh! I need to get a photo of that for the blog!" and we were looking at the same thing.
Can you say, "Kindred spirits?"

Looks like you had a great time! I love those British Subway signs -- did you price them at all?
