Meet Me at the Fair


It's Shameless Commerce Tuesday!  This is the time of year, at least in the Midwest, when 4-Hers and their families in rural communities come to town (usually the county seat) for 4-H Achievement Days or the County Fair.  Winners will advance to the State Fair, usually held around Labor Day in late August and early September.

I have wonderful memories of Lake County 4-H Achievement Days in Madison, South Dakota, and giggling the nights away in the 4-H dorms at the South Dakota State Fair -- many, many years ago.

So today I decided to feature this Ferris Wheel wall art from my Etsy shop, Pasque Flower Creations. This 8” x 10” Ferris wheel wall art would be a perfect addition to baby’s nursery or a child’s room. Trefle fabric by Kokka, a Japanese fabric designer, was stretched over studio edge cotton duck canvas double primed with acid free sizing. Fabric was stapled to the back of the canvas frame. The back features slate colored wool felt backing for a neat finish and a metal self-leveling bracket for hanging.  There is also a coordinating
Carousel wall art piece.  Only $10.00 each.  Such a deal!

  1. I love fairs and I think your wall art really captures the fun, sort of vintage feel! I was in 4-H, but I never got to stay in any dorms.

  2. The dorms were more like barracks than dorms -- but it was one HUGE slumber party! 4-H was great.

    1. Thanks, Edi! I've never been to the Iowa State Fair, but I've heard it is incredible.

  4. Sounds wonderful! Being a city girl I never had the opportunity to be part of 4-H, but I always loved going to the state fair. Great wall art!

    1. My granddaughter wants to go to an amusement park for her birthday. I won't do roller coasters, but I'd ride the ferris wheel. Loved the view from the top.

  7. I do love the wall art! It does bring back memories.

    I haven't been to a fair in years! We were actually talking about going to our county fair this year for a night out. It came and went, and forgot all about it! Hopefully next year.
