Back to Reality…
Today, summer is over as Ansley started back to school as a senior. My goodness did these years pass by fast. I still cannot believe this is her last year in high school. I best enjoy her as much as possible this year as I know she will be ready to fly the coup soon. Which brings me to ask this question… What in the world will Alan and I do with just the two of us at home? We have always had a child in the house as I married Alan when Terri was 2 years old. I’m just going to put all this way deep in the back of my mind for now and share with you some photo collages from my trip to Buckhannon, WV. It was an awesome visit with all the family and I hope we can get together again next year. I love going up there and seeing everyone.
This is of the old family homestead. I love this place and have so many wonderful memories going there.
All of these photos were taken on my aunt and uncle’s property from their garden, pears from what is left of the orchard from long ago, old tools my great, great, great uncle used, a black cherry woodpile and other landscape photos.
And her are some family photos and photos from one of the trips to the Ron Hinkle Glass Gallery. The quilt shown in the upper right corner is one that my mom pieced together. My grandmother pieced all the red, white and blue squares together many years ago. When she passed away and my mom and her brother and sister were cleaning out the house she found the squares. So mom pieced all the squares and brought it up for her cousin and his wife to have machine quilted. Her cousin owns The Stitching House and Sew Much More. It is the most amazing quilt shop I have every been in.
I hope you enjoyed the guest bloggers I had scheduled to post while I was gone. I loved reading what they posted and certainly appreciated their help. Tomorrow I have something super awesome to tell you about that includes a nice trip to Bellagio, Italy in September of 2012. All I can say is start packing your bags now! It’s awesome.
