It's August and that means the KY State Fair! Once again, mom and I entered items in antiques section and I entered layouts in the scrapbooking division. It's always a gamble as to whether or not the judges will like our entries. BUT, they obviously did again this year! We won the most ribbons ever!!! If you don't want to hear horn tooting, stop reading now! Otherwise, here is the breakdown! I won two first place ribbons (birthday and vacation) and one second place ribbon (Christmas) in scrapbooking! AND, to my complete surprise, my birthday layout also won a big purple ribbon for Best in Show! WOW! What an honor!
In the antiques division, I won 7 ribbons and mom won 6!!! I got two first place ribbons for a bank and a child's toy, a third place for a KY document, third for boy scout literature and third for a clothing accessory. I also received honorable mention ribbons for black history memorabilia and a holiday item! Mom received three second place ribbons for black history memorabilia, photo of an event and a toy! She also received honorable mention ribbons for a group photo, an item made of wood and a miniature photo!!!
Another successful State Fair!

It was that time again a couple of weeks ago! Tim and I headed to Frankfort, KY to pick up 127 and hit the road of yard sales! It was hot and humid this year but it could have been 100 and it wasn't so we were grateful! We felt like overall the number of vendors at the multi vendor set ups were down this year and some of our favorites were nowhere in sight. However, we still found lots of goodies and had a trunk full by the end of the trip! We hit the Mexican restaurant in Danville that we like to eat at and ended the evening with a little dip in the hotel pool! We went to several indoor malls and thrift stores Fri because it was even hotter than Thurs although we did do the big outdoor set up at Junction City and the Boyle Co. fairgrounds first thing. We had a little bit of excitement that evening on the way home when we discovered one of our tires triggered the low tire pressure indicator to come on! So we backtracked to Wal Mart and fortunately their tire department was able to fix the leaking air valve!
