The Romsey Show

the Romsey Show 2011

I don't know about you, but I love a good fair.  I love the old-fashioned community atmosphere with farmers showing off their livestock, home-baked goodies, little rides for the kids, and entertainment.  The Romsey Show takes place every year near us, and it's a lot of fun for the whole family.

 There were so many things to look at and enjoy, and I think we all had our own favorites.  Miriam loved getting to make a clay horse (it will be on display soon); Anya loved seeing live bats at the bat hospital and then making a bat puppet; Preston liked napping in the stroller as we walked around, and Jared says he liked all of it.  My favorite was seeing all of the traditional crafts.  It made me want to learn how to do things like spin and weave, make ceramics, and work with felt.  I'm adding a whole list of these things to my list of things to try one day.  Until then, I really enjoyed seeing other people's beautiful creations and the way that these traditional skills and art forms are being passed on and used.
