  1. Hi Becky!! Oh, I do love those dish flowers!! :) That was so imaginative wasn't it?

  2. Shelia...I've been attending this for so many years (don't know how many) maybe thirty years or so!!! It is always the first full weekend of October...I only made it through about one third of the booths!!! I used to show at this particular fair and it was a hoot...people would come back year after year looking for me!!! (I'm sure they did this for a lot of people but it made me feel so special!!!) They wouldn't remember my name but would know me by my work!!! People come from all over the US!!! Sometimes you got rained out (can you imagine the mud) sometimes it was hot and sometimes cold but it is always windy. Everything there is covered by lots of dust!!!

  3. Becky, these creations are gorgeous. We make teacup garden bird feeders/baths like these but the flowers are AWESOME! TY for sharing.

    Have a great weekend.

  4. Hi Becky, I am NOT into garden art AT ALL---and am happy just to grow beautiful flowers in my yard.

    Those purple berries are gorgeous.

    Seeing that guy eat that corn-on-the-cob made me hungry....

    Great pictures...
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  14. Hi Becky, I have a tea cup on a pole in my garden. It makes a pretty accent. I enjoyed the yard art, the callicarpa and the people of the festival! Especially thought the sweet corn looked good.
    Blessings, Beth

  15. Those dish flowers are very creative. Wired for light or even one of those small led lights and these would look incredible in a garden at night.

    Thanks for sharing.

  21. Hi Becky... What a great festival! I think the garden art is terrific and you would never have to prune. Your little terrier(?) is too cute at the bottom of the page.

    Thanks for visiting myeverydaygraces today:) Glad you enjoyed the fawn photos.

  22. What is left of my flowers is in the category of "crispy critters" also. I watered this evening, but think I was wasting my time. I have not been, but I have heard it is a fun festival.
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
