|Swag from a single banquet after the 2015 show season, haha.
|Ruby (and Topaz!) won some sweet embroidered Irish knits.
|One memorable show that year gave out medals instead of ribbons!
|I even had my medals on my bulletin board!
|I am still spending my way through Menards rebates and this was like.. $13. Winning.
|I'm not sure DH had ever really seen the extent of my collection. He got a little bug-eyed for a minute... haha.
|Less 6th, 5th, and 4th ribbons than I would have thought... although don't think that's because I'm some hotshot rider or anything, it's mostly because classes around here are typically very small lol.
|Once we got to the 3rds, I could easily fill the entire row.
|Had a second to spare! ;)
|Too many blues for the bottom row, so I tossed some up top to fill in the gaps.
|Voila! I hung the medals on the closet track in the corner behind the stopper (so they're out of the way), but next I need to figure out something to hang those on....
|I was perusing "medal hangers" on Google and about died laughing at this one.
|Someone suggested wrapping them around boards, and god knows I have plenty of those lying around.
|They look better on the thicker board, because then you can read the words on the sashes. So that might be a project for another day!
