First of all, I want to share with you a couple of finds I found at a local antique store.
I found this 15” Munising bowl for $15.00.
And aren’t these fantastic? The little pumpkins were $6.00 and the large pumpkin was $14.00.
They’re made by a woman that has an antique/prim store in Curtice called The Grainary which is located in The Big White Barn at Bench Farms Greenhouse. It’s about 2 hours away from me, near Toledo. I would love to go see her shop because the display she has set up at my nearby antique store is fabulous. She has a great talent of mixing antiques with handmade primitives. So if any of you live nearby, you have to check this place out (and then let me know if it’d be worth the 2 hour drive!)
Yesterday the kids and I went to the county fair to watch my niece’s 3 year old son (the one that I babysat) show his goat in the Intermediate level. He did a fantastic job! He handled the goat very well for only being 3!
In the Intermediate age, they all get a ribbon and a medal.
After the goat show, we walked around for a little while to look at the animals. It was great, because there was hardly anybody at the fair. We got to see the Petting Zoo, whereas last year it was so crowded you we couldn’t get near it!
Kory got to feed some baby kangaroo.
We saw these cute little guys. . . . .
And even this guy!!!!!
Kory wanted to ride the camel, but at the last minute she wanted me to ride with her! Not a smooth ride!!!
We then checked out the Petting Farm. Now let me tell you, I could have taken several of the animals in this barn home with me!!
Aren’t these little pot-bellied pigs cute?!! Too bad they can’t stay that size!
And these little guys . . . .aren’t they adorable?!!
I love the Lions-head bunnies. They have fur around their head that mimics that of a lion.
Who couldn’t love this face?
Until next time . . . . . .Kris
