A Day at the Fair

It was a beautiful day on Sunday, so we headed out to the Frederick County Fair.  The Fair seems to have a personality all it's own. People watching alone can fill a whole afternoon. 
One of the funniest signs was the one outside the pony rides, check it out.
I had to take a picture of it!  I also admit, I"m guilty, I quickly snapped a photo of my daughter on the pony ride!  Hope the fair police don't come after me!  After paying $4.00 for a 30 second ride on a pony, I sort of felt like it was only fair that I capture the moment.

Cool son Ryan!
Overall it was a successful day at the fair. We spent a million dollars, kids rode a million rides, and then it was home for showers and dinner.

 This week I am working on jewelry for the new Waygoose Redux. I 've sold my jewelry at the Waygoose for over 10 years and have watched the store grow and move several times now.  I love the selection of American made handcrafted items that are part of the Waygoose.  The store is moving to their new location next week.  I'll talk more about the grand opening and give you all the details in next weeks blog.

I'll be back on Wednesday to write about the Artist of the Week.  You don't want to miss this weeks artist, so make sure to check back on Wednesday!  Thanks for reading.  Stacie

Love that first photo (well, the rest, too), but that first one could win a photo contest! Beautiful! BTW, I reported you to the fair police and they said you now owe $10 ($7 fine).
