I love Autumn Festivals, don’t you? I wanted to bring you along on one I’ll be linking to the wonderful Southern Daydreamer’s Outdoor Wednesday where you’ll find a hundred links to the great outdoors!
The Husband took me to on Saturday…The Cotton Pickin Fair in Gay GA! Look at this wagon full of cotton! My Mama used to pick cotton when she was a little girl!She would have loved this festival for so many reasons…
There were pumpkins…take a look at the blonde girl in this picture. Is she checkin out The Husbands bum? I think she is! Can’t blame her!
All Things Autumn everywhere at the Cotton Pickin Festival…take a moment and let Autumn wash over you and give you a tiny tickle of joy…
Wasn’t that fun? Now, I want to tell you this festival was my all time favorite taking the number 1 spot from the Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain Park…there were several reasons, not the least of which was the YumAliciouS food!!! Real authentic “fair food”!!!
Peeps you know I have a spun sugar heart, Cotton Candy is absolutely, positively one of my most FAVORITE things. In all the world, I love this the best.
I asked The Husband to hold the camera while I let the delectable fluffy pink cloud of shuga dissolve on my tongue…
He thought it was a good idea to catch me in the act…
I said something like; “Holy crap, don’t take my picture eating this”.
Oh, it’s on now, I thought. Just you wait…
So I got the camera and pretended to take pictures of antique toys…oh the next reason I liked this festival better than any other, they had some antiques…you know how I love All Things Old…
The 3rd reason I like the Cotton Pickin Fair the best is it’s got loads of space. The place was super crowded but just look!
There were areas of wide open spaces…
Oh, and remember the 1st reason I like this fair the BEST…food people.
Oh, but back to The Husband…’Scuse me Husband, what are you about to buy???
(What do you suppose his look is saying to me?)
He was probably sayin: Woman, I’m not trying to loose weight, you are, I can eat anything I want…boo-ya.
Really? Well, in all fairness, as much as I love spun sugar, The Husband loves fried pies. And he really doesn’t need to loose any more weight. Just ask that blonde girl that was checking out his bum.
And ribs…this was just too easy…every time I turned around the man was chomping down on a little somin-somin.
Country Ham Biscuits…well, we are in the deep South.
Don’t cha love this house? It was on the property and had booths inside selling the cutest stuff.
This is what I loved the best inside that beautiful house…don’t know why…
That looks fun. But we didn’t partake….I’m not a fan of the root beer.
The day was pristine…
I can’t believe it but The Husband didn’t eat a Funnel Cake. He’s got a Weight Watcher’s weigh in on Wednesday after all! Good grief, he’ll loose 5 lbs and me and my 100calorie bag of spun sugar will have gained! (Have I mentioned to you that I believe the man/woman weight loss phenom is evidence that God is a man?)
This just speaks for itself. We did not eat a pickle.
Really, every few feet there was more fun food…good gravy.
“Where are you going?” I asked the husband… He pointed.
This was the best thing of the whole day…we met the most delightful women from the Senior Center.
These ladies quilt together 3 times a week! I showed them my arthritic hands and expected them to say “oh I have that too”. They didn’t . Their hands worked perfectly. They made 6 stitches with every needle entry!
They said we could take their picture if we bought raffle tickets…The Husband bought a BUNCH of raffle tickets. They fell in love with him…like most women do. Again, who could blame them. He’s a peach!
The Husband and I had a great day and we found a new favorite Autumn Festival! This empty nest thing isn’t all bad Peeps. No telling what we’ll be off doing next weekend! (Of course all day we talked about taking Baby Ellie, our granddaughter, next time!)
