Trinket Boxes and the Fair

I have another unexpected collection....look what happens when you clean the house :) The bird one above I purchased last year when I helped at the estate sale.

The one on the far left is from hubby a long time ago. The middle one is from my son with a note in it for one of my birthdays :) and the puppy one from a girlfriend...

This one is was purchased when we bought that huge coke collection and other treasures from an elder couple who were moving out of state. We also bought the Indian china cabinet. It was her Grandma if I remember correctly. It's pretty old. we go to the State Fair on Thursday and a MUST eat/have is the Cream Puffs! I always get the chocolate cream one...mind you, this is the first day of the Fair, and the chocolate maker isn't working...REALLY!!! SO, I settled for the white cream puff. It was GOOD

down to the last lick on the wrapper..............YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the Minnesota Gopher that is carved out of a tree...we were at the fair from 10-4 and left with tired feet. I also ate a new item, "crab fritters"...not very good. :( The Ice lemonade was very GOOD. I also brought home the best salt water taffy that they make at the fair. Didn't eat that much this year!It was a nice day with hubby.

Today worked out in the yard as the bridal bushes needed to be trimmed. Also started working on Halloween/Fall crafts. Is anyone having a Fall Swap???

I love your new banner. It is almost September and that means fall. I was wondering the same thing about a fall swap........if you find one, let me know.

Lovely collection!!

Have you tried the bucket of rigs (rigatoni) at the fair or the teriyaki ostrich on a stick???

What fun to go to the State Fair!! The last one I went to was when we lived in Wisconsin (and that was over 15 years ago).
The food at the fair is the best!!
Love your newly discovered collection!
Have a wonderful week.

It's crazy how you end up with a collection, and you didn't even know it!
We went to a county fair last week, and we ate our weight in corn dogs, funnel cakes and bloomin' onions. So bad for you, but SO yummy!

Glad you got to go to your State Fair. We missed ours this year even though it's 1/2 mile from our house!! Had to work every day!

Hi Deb! Love the picture of you and the cream puff! It looked delicious! I would have to have one, too! I can't believe it is already time to start thinking about fall. Enjoy your day! Twyla

Beth said...

I love all kinds of sales too! That is what drew me to your blog. A kindred garage sale soul!
The trinket boxes are beautiful and the cream puff looks scrumptious!

my grandmother once told me that she never really collected anything, but seemed to acquire everything! I like to acquire things and then realize that its a nice little collection!
how nice that you and your hubby went to the fair together. mine would not want to go to the fair. sometimes he is no fun!
have a great week

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love your collection of trinket boxes! I know I have a couple...wonder if it's a collection? Waiting for Fall and almost ready for some new decor around here!

outjunking said...

Enjoyed looking at your trinket boxes. What girl doesn't love a trinket and box to put it in.

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

It's still so hot here that it's hard to believe that fall is just a few weeks away. The fair looks like fun...especially that cream puff!!!

LV said...

Enjoyed another great visit with you.I love all your trinket boxes. I have not been to a fair in ears. The State Fair of Texas is not a safe place so I do not go.

GardenofDaisies said...

Oh my gosh, those creampuffs look delicious!

Linda said...

Looks like you are having some fun!! My favorite food was always the lefse! Love the trinket boxes...

A Rosy Note said...

That trinket box is so pretty, love the little birds on it. It is like looking into an antique store window when I come here, everything is so beautiful. Thank you for coming by.
