....................Fair results are in!

Tadah! Well, I am back from the fair.. and I am a happy girl. As you know, I entered 20 things.... and as you don't know, I won on 10 of them! Lots of them were in cases, and then there were the "fair police"... so I couldn't read the remarks on most of them. But, here they are!
Captain Jack Sparrow, entered in Tatting, won three ribbons! Sweepstakes, Judges choice and 1st!!! Oh my! I was so surprised at this! I guess the Captain will be bringing home some nice little pirate swag!! Next to Captain Sparrow, was none other than my little leprechaun, Conor! He won 1st place. He was so honored, now he has a beautiful ribbon to wear on special occasions!
Then, we have my little baby dragon, "pd". Conor was glad his bestest little friend won 1st place, too. My doily, which I called Charmed Destiny, done in the Celtic syle, won 2nd. It was a last minute choice, as I didn't finish Iris's doily. Good choice, I guess!
My scarab necklace, shown here in a very bad picture, won 1st in Jewelry.

My Haunted house won 1st, in seasonal (not Christmas) decor. woo hoo!
The "Rebel tatting on a tatting shuttle" ornament won 1st in Christmas ornaments.
And the last 1st prize I won (that makes 7 if you are counting) went to my tatted gloves! They are done in black and have a bunch of black/white beads on the cuffs. The little beads almost look like eyes!
Ok, now for third. I won third prize on this photo of an orb spider. I am always surprised when I win in photography, mainly because there are some 'semi' if not real professionals in there, and people who take pictures in foreign places. Well, I cannot travel, so, I can't get exciting locale photos, but, I guess my little spider was exciting enough this year!
Last ribbon, third place,but not least, is my Americana paver. I painted this paver for my friends Bette and Dave for their anniversary. They haven't seen it yet, and when they go to the fair, they should get the clue that it is theirs! I have painted baskets of flowers on pavers before, but I got the flag idea because Bette and Dave like Americana. Sooooo, I painted the basket to look like a flag basket! I like it so much, I am going to make myself one.
Here are some other photos of my non-winning entries. In this photo, we were supposed to make a flower arrangement that would be suitable for someone in the hospital. I REALLY loved mine. Can you guess which one it is? Well, it is the puppy one. If I was sick, I think it would really cheer me up.. but... it didn't win. I also entered this yellow one in crafts.
My hedgehog, which you have seen before, these photos, and these tatted get well cards, also didn't win.
All in all, I am pretty pleased. Any comments are welcome.

I'm so happy for you. OF COURSE, now Donnacha is terribly green (not from being Irish) but happy for Conor. Donnacha is 'eyeing' me and saying, "HUMPF, you never do anyrhing like that." (sigh) Leprechauns are so hard to please, being perfect and all.
Happy Dance for you and a hug for Rebel.. Bev
