Barbie Beaches and Cotton Pickin Fairs

Okay, so Prince and I go to the Cotton Pickin Fair this weekend with our good friends the Foster Failures. Getting out for a day of fun with friends is so priceless.

"To be rich in friends is to be poor in nothing" ~~Lillian Whiting

On the way there, we pass this Barbie Beach. Please do yourself a favor and click on this to get a better look. Yep, it's a man made beach full of Barbie and her friends in someone's front yard. This Barbie Beach is so well known in Newnan that I see that even Shrek has dropped by this weekend. As a matter of fact a couple of years back, someone stole all of this ladies Barbies out of her front yard and it was total mayhem!! It made front page news!! People from all over town sent new Barbie's and the beach was again full of sunbather's. I kid you not..........

This one's for Airman Mom. The first thing we did before we went in was watch these students do a training exercise with while flying American flags on their horses while God Bless America played. If you haven't been to Airman Mom's site, check it out. She sings the praises of our soldiers daily and is a true patriot...........

Love the look of the entrance........

Pretty ladies enjoying roasted ears of sweet corn...........

Clowning around.................

Lady Foster Failure and Prince with her neice at their shaved ice stand. The margarita one is awesome...........(maybe it had tequila---maybe not, lol).......

I spied this pup Angel lying behind a vendor's stand and she posed........

Cute kiddo with a cool hair-did...........

Bourbon barrel aged teriyaki sauce and pure vanilla. Yep, bought some.........

Cute kiddos clogging..............

Granny's Apple Dumplings. The special of the day was called "Big Chocolate Thing"...........

Fried green tomatoes. That's what I'm talkin about y'all............

This is the antique dressmaker's form that Gypsy Sista gave me. It shall now be the keeper of my jewelry. Awesome isn't it?...............

Please click on "The Daily Puppy". The Humane Society need donations and you're helping the helpless.

Hope everyone has a joyful week!!!!

Steady On

  4. It feels like my comment is first but there probably 20 waiting for your approval. will this week be as busy as last? Good story and I want some fried green tomatoes - I love them.
    hugs and kisses from Brasil -

  5. I am so jealous, it will be at least a month before any fairs, community picnics etc get started around here.

    Then they trip all over each other competing for the best weekends and I always come away feel I miss out on the best of them.

    Great to hear the way the community supported the lady with her Barbie beach! What great people live in Newman!

  6. Looks like that was an awesome event! Had y'all pull it off over there, we were having buckets of rain all weekend! The Barbie Beach is priceless!

  7. Okay, first of all everything looks great and YES on the bourbon barrel aged teriyaki and vanilla (sounds awesome)! And second...is that a Nude Barbie Beach!? First I noticed rock-climbing barbie was climbing neked...then I noticed they all were! HA! (or does it just look that way?) :D

  8. Looks like a great time! Love the barbie beach....LOL

  11. What, no Pink Barbie Dune Buggy at the Barbie Beach?

  12. What a delightful post!!! You live such a fabulous life!!!! ~Janine XO

  13. I'm thinking someone has a Barbie fetish. And you forgot to mention it was a nude beach:)
    Mmmmm...I love roasted corn..lots of butter...
    Looks like a good time was had by all!

  14. I think I am going to set up a Smurf village in my front yard. I think my country neighbors
    would love it.

  15. that pink hair matches mine...and love the dressmaker's form. what a great gift.

  16. rg...this looks to have been a perfect day! Beautuiful weather and all the smiling face...fun for all! Adorable puppy!
    Thanks for the mention, I always appreciate your kind words!

  17. Looks like you had a great time...

    Thanks for all you do for our furry friends. GOD bless you....I am an animal lover, dog trainer, and therapy dog mom, too!! And....yes, all of my babies are spayed or nuetored....and three of my four dogs are rescues...as are all our cats!!

    Blessings and prayers, andrea

  18. First of all- Those puppies are so cute. In fact I want to start bawling every time I see them because I want all of them (and it's not hormones).

    Second- A Barbie beach has got to be the coolest thing I've heard of. I'm a little hurt that only Barbies are invited. I think they might enjoy a little GI Joe heroes.

    Third- I'm so envious of your trip to the fair. I don't think there's anything more fun than going to a small time fair.

    Hope you had enough fun for me!!!

  19. I love the Barbies climbing the rock wal.
    I know have a craving for fried green tomatos...thanks.
    A great big thanks for noticing my toes! It ain't often they're (mostly) painted!!

  20. Well dang! Looks like you had a great cotton picking weekend. Love those quilts.

    Saturday was nice, but yesterday was chilly, and today it is just rain. We are in Baltimore and the traffic is a mess, so it nice looking at your photos while my husband wrestles the rain and traffic.

    Look forward to our next shoot out. We need to entice some more shooters. I sure do miss Loida and HalfCrazy.

    Love to Prince from the both of us.

  21. That puppy at the top is ADORABLE. How do you mange to not go over there and adopt it? You are a strong woman!!

  22. you bet I want to join! sounds like a lot of fun! thanks for the invite!!!

  23. Looks like a whole lotta fun!
