A Country Fair

It’s always fun to see the quilts during fair season. Cindy’s annual tour to the Ohio State fair is a highlight of our summer blog, but I have to tell you that there are no quilting slouches here in our little hidden corner of New York!

Mom and I attended the Steuben County fair yesterday (on it’s 200th anniversary, no less). And we oohed and aahed at the quilting talent sprinkled in our midst.

Just after we entered the fair grounds, we went in search of some cows. I needed to lean against one and inhale her perfume– and look what I found, a cow + a quilt. Bonus! I love the well-loved tone of this fabric.

Our next bee-line was to the root beer float truck. Sublime.

This is some seriously excellent marketing — from the truck
To the barrel and striped decor
to the help
to the high-quality, excellent product. True Americana. My hats off to the marketing team!

My son and I have been touring the farm on weekends. The air has turned a little fall-ish, but the views are still divine.

We found some wild blackberries. It’s been years since we picked them.

I am four days away from being the proud mother of a college freshmen. I’m going to be needing a lot of fresh air.

    Hi Sandy! Yum-o that root beer float looks divine. I can almost taste it. They did a great job with the truck and their whole theme. Only four days until school starts?! Wow, that whole senior year and this summer just whipped by, didn’t it?!! {{Hugs}} Things will be different but that’s not a bad thing. You’ve got this! ~smile~ Roseanne

    I just visited our county fair and saw the 4-H dairy judging. Like you, I enjoy that whiff of dairy! Great cow and quilt photo—all the photos! Best wishes as you transition to college mom. It’s such a mix of excitement tinged and a tiny bit of sadness when you say goodbye. Thankfully moms are hearty souls who learn how to grow with their children.

      Ah — a kindred spirit when it comes to dairy air 🙂
      My goal is to never let him see me break down. I hope I can hold the wailing in until I get safely home LOL!
