A-door-ables

Recently the American Sewing Guild of Ocala held it's Annual Luncheon. Each member of the organizing committee was asked to make 10 A-door-ables to give as favors for the luncheon.I made 15 so I could keep some. It was hard to decide which ones to keep.These cute little gifts can be used to hold glasses, potpourri, small flowers or just about anything you need to keep handy. The pattern can be purchased from this web site. Adoorables
You could even hide the remote control from your husband. He would never think to look in there. These make lovely gifts for a small thank you.

Scarecrow Row Alachua, Florida

This Sunday Alachua Florida held their Fall Festival complete with scarecrow Row.
Just in case you do not think that scarecrows are still being employed I thought you should see one at work. He keeps his vigil on a beautiful garden here in High Springs.




Now there is one scary lady. The sign reads you should only be scary one day a year. It is sponsored by a clothing store.


Yeah for the Red, White and Blue!!!!









It was a beautirful day and this year the scarecrows were the best.

Traxler Fall Festival

We visited the Traxler Fall Festival held at the Springhill Methodist Church that was established in 1860. It is a beautiful church with lovely people. They had a barbecue, craft fair and bake sale. I think we go just for the bake sale as the Ladies of the church must be the best cooks in the whole county. We just had to buy a whole Italian Cream cake. Let me tell you it is fab. This is Bellamy Road, one of the oldest roads in the area. I have always loved a canopy of oaks. A Civial War soldier.


The festival was on October 3, 2009. I said a little prayer for this tiny child. He is gone but not forgotten.



The cemetary has graves from many slaves as well as the pioneer families of this area.
