Repurposing at the fair

Life has been a bit busy lately.  I've been working on some projects for the upcoming women's retreat with my church, but I don't have anything quite ready to post yet.
 
I did attend our county fair a couple weeks ago and found some repurposed projects there that I want to share with you.  First off, the fair committee had a contest in which people could decorate bowling pins.  There were lots of great ones.  Here are some of my favorites.
 



I love checking out the artsy and crafty projects that 4-H'ers create.  I was in 4-H for 10 years when I was growing up, and fell in love with crafting through that fabulous organization. 
 
 One girl created a dress out of book pages!  She must have had a lot of patience.  It's absolutely fabulous.  She even included a picture of her wearing it.
 

 
Another project I loved was this sunset painted onto an old board.  Unfortunately, my picture doesn't do it justice.  The lighting in the building was not condusive to taking good pictures.
