Blue Ribbon Winner

On a whim...and because Blake pushed me to do it...I entered my Bunny rug (design and teacher-Tricia Travis) in the Coweta County Fair this year. I was thrilled to win a Blue Ribbon in Heritage Crafts/Rugs and a Blue Rosette in Department!

Each year it seems that there are fewer exhibitors, which saddens me. When the county was less urban the exhibits always seemed to be full of flowers, handicrafts, farm goods, preserved items and baked goods. Next fall I am going to encourage more people to enter, as I would hate to see this rich tradition disappear.  And I plan to enter more items, which I will be working on through the year and will share here.

Yesterday I froze what will likely be the last of the okra for the year. The green came from our garden and the pretty red came from our local organic farm, where we are members of the CSA.

This beautiful girl was Sophomore Homecoming Representative at her school this weekend, and was escorted by her handsome dad.

Making precious memories.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Take Care,


  1. Congratulations on your blue ribbon! You deserve it.

  2. Congratulations on that beautiful Blue Ribbon. The project is fantastic! It's heartwarming to see families making memories. You see love in both of their eyes. Awesome!

  3. Congrats on your blue ribbons. Yes, encourage more people to enter, it would be a sad day for the fair to close, we are having less and less people enter in our county fair.

  4. Congrats on the blue ribbon! It's gorgeous!

  5. That is the sweetest looking bunny! Oh so pretty.
