Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  Wow, time is flying!  I've been trying to find time to get these photos from the Goat Hill Fair up for awhile now!  It's been almost 2 weeks since I took these! 


As you can see, there where lots of beautiful things there! I would have loved to spend more time looking around but it was hot and I was wearing a black top polyester type top...pair that with hot flashes and it was not good! 


I really can't say I didn't stay long though...I walked around the whole thing 3 or 4 times looking for my friend Shari who had a booth there.  

My guy was such a sport...he never complained once. I told him I owe him one...I'm hoping that means he'll take me to a car show, not a gun show! Now that would be boring!


Goat Hill Fair was in the Santa Cruz Mountains which is only about 15 minutes away but when you're up there you feel so far removed from the rat race of Silicon Valley. 


My friends at "Not Too Shabby" had a beautiful booth!

















My favorite thing at the fair was this wall hanging ivy topiary planter below! I want one...




Finally I found my friend Shari's booth....

and here is my friend Shari!  She's always smiling!!! 




This beautiful old home was on the property. Gorgeous!!!  I secretly wished I could go look inside it...



I hope you enjoyed your visit!

What a fabulous show to have nearby to attend. I would be in big trouble there, would need a truck to haul it all home. So many gorgeous things there, the ruffles and the bike sure caught my eye.

That looked like so much fun. I have a lamp I wanted to post but I'm such a beginner that I don't really know what I'm doing. So I just look in here and dream but your site and other's have encouraged me to paint and re-do old furniture and start being more creative.

Monica said...

Oh my! What scrumptious fairs you have over there!
Thanks for sharing and make us drool a little bit, Cindy.
Hope you'll like my coffee filter roses tutorial.

Dixie said...

Cindy, Your photos are beautiful and I bet it was a lot cooler than the 100-degree temps we had to brave at Round Top/Warrenton, Texas last weekend!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Thank you so much for posting those pictures of the show. I never seem to take the time to go to events like that so it is like a field trip for me to get to see your photos. Thanks also for hosting the link party.

LOL, I can SO identify with the Hot Flashes!!! They're awful, aren't they?

Great pics as usual, nice to see your friend Shari, and thanks so much for including a pic of that wonderful house. If I had been there with you we might have talked each other into at least peeking in the windows!!!
