     Yesterday at the Fair could not have been better, unless you, my family and friends, could all have been there with me!   A family reunion at the Fair! Now that would be cool!   Today is going to be another brilliantly sunshiny day, high of 74 degrees, and boundless blue skies! It promises to be the kind of day that screams “Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina, in the morning!”
      Just in case you aren’t on facebook, I thought I’d show you the caricature we had done at the Fair yesterday! What do you think?!

The artist is one Nick Tabron, a talented, and kind hearted man! He is a native North Carolinian and actually lives near us in Southern Franklin County! We met his wife Rhonda also who was there lending a helping hand to the artist! I want to get a caricature done of my grandchildren, Nick is located outside Dorton Arena, north entrance.

      Annie, who is the baker of our little group, had to see the decorated cakes immediately!  I thought you might enjoy seeing them also.  When you are at the Fair, they are displayed in the education building, along with the quilts, and handmade dresses that are only awesome!

 

 

    The cakes are truly amazing! I cannot imagine being able to make these things…out of cake! Good Gracious! Talented people, our neighbors!  

    This is not a cake, in case you wondered! This dress, with layers and layers of ruffles, is reminisient of Gone With The Wind days! The picture does not do it justice, you have to go see it for yourself, in the education building!

     I’m on my way to the Fair right now, Friday morning, October 12, 2012.  I’d love to see you there as well, if you get there tweet us  @mamakat07 and let us know where we can find you!  Have a great day!

Old enough to enjoy life, I am a Red Hatter, grandmother, gardener, and amateur genealogist. I am a retired clinical psychologist, master's level, who is disabled with heart disease, but having fun with family and friends. Married over 40 years, I have two grown daughters and three grandchildren. I have learned that grandchildren provide a joy one never knew existed---writing feeds my soul, gardening is therapy, and genealogy research makes me feel like a detective!
