What the acting lacked, the art direction more than made up for it. I am going to have to get it on DVD just so I can look at it again and again.
It made me want to “take back” the quainter qualities of our State Fair. Just like so many of us are picking back up, and paying tribute to the domestic arts like knitting, sewing & baking, I want to do the same for the Fair…
The movie got me thinking about how to do this and wondering about all the Blue Ribbon competitions that go on during the Fair.
Since I have never been in 4-H or part of a farming community myself, I have never paid much attention to the competition portion of the fair, even though I know it goes on. In fact it has been several years since we have even been to the State Fair (these pictures are from a county fair a few years ago) and I can’t remember what sorts of crafts I may have seen while there…
Jeanetta- my partner in craft crime & who I share a weird mind link with- had been thinking the exact same thing, only about her local County Fair (since I live in the state capitol, our county doesn’t get a fair – we just get the big one!) And had already started looking into entering some of her Aprons and other crafty items at her upcoming fair.
So last Sunday, while we were together, we got online and started looking at the State Fair website, and investigating all the various categories under which we could enter some of our creative endeavors.
For someone who doesn’t Can, or Sew much, I was really surprised at how many categories I could enter my paper based and other crafts under!
What do you think?
Have you ever entered a County or State Fair?
If so, what was the experience like?
Do you want to take back your Fair?
