Incredible, no-longer-edible eggs

Posted October 20, 2009

I feel sorry for the Arts & Crafts Building, which is located a little ways down from the Grandstand toward the Village of Yesteryear. I feel sorry for it because it gets no love. Everyone talks about the Commercial / Educational building, but the Arts & Crafts building has crafts too and it doesn't get as much attention.

If you're not normally someone who takes in the Arts & Crafts Building, please give it a walkthrough this year, as the NC Egg Association got some excellent entries for its decorated egg contest, the winner of which will appear at the White House. (And I won't even mention the Amish fudge, winners of the Lego contest, and the unbelievable handcrafted furniture.)

I took some pictures of a few of the winning eggs but I couldn't really do them justice. You won't believe the level of detail and delicacy that was achieved in painting these eggs. Check them out!

    Does anyone know if Smithfield the painting pot-bellied pig is there this year?

    I always visit this exhibit building. There are some fabulous crafts. This year's "most amazing" might just be the tobacco barn made out of old tobacco sticks.

    Don't forget the All American Fudge in the same Building. It is the BEST!
