Our parade host and hostess set out this sweet little tray by the bed for me the night before the parade with everything that might possibly be needed for a comfortable stay in their welcoming home.
Here is a picture of the kitchen before the parade viewers arrived that I took just after getting up. Cindy had been up preparing all the delicious food for her guests long before I even got out of bed.
Even in these unsettled times it is a comfort to maintain tradition and enjoy the blessings of the people that we love all gathered together to watch a good old fashioned parade pass by on a beautiful fall day in October.

Hope you enjoy this simple offering today.
Many blessings to you all.

On this pillow you see the plaid used on a larger scale.
This little lumbar pillow was made to rest on the back of the chair but today is being used to spread the pattern of the chair around our living room.
Last Saturday at a local craft fair I bought these three pieces from Miss Sarah. Aren't her cards cute?
Here they are in their new home. These pieces have a special place in my heart because before they came to Greenbrier to live they were in Summerhill. Summerhill was the little duplex cottage where our family had the lower unit and Sarah's had the upper unit. We shared our duplex for 12 years until we sold it in 2006. These pieces will remind me of all the fond memories of our time at Summerhill for ever more.
One of these days I will try to share photos of Sarah's doll house of a home that is chock full of her tartan needlepoint work. If you are a fan of the English Country look you will love her home that has continued to evolve over the past 20 years. The custom work that Sarah has created to adorn her cape cod cottage will amaze you and if you think the color Hunter Green is over, prepare to fall in love with it all over again.
