As I mentioned in my last post, the house that my parent's live in at the mountains is the house that my father lived in as child. It is the house that I visited my Grandparents when I was young. This is my Hoosier cabinet that I gave my Mom to use in the kitchen at the mountain house. It is hard to tell, but I made Mom a quilted table runner to go on the shelf of the cabinet. Look closely and you can see Mom's delicious peach-blueberry pie that we had for dessert. It was so good!
This is a picture of the old stone fireplace in the kitchen. This is how my Grandparent's kept warm. At one time there was also a wood stove in the kitchen.
Here we are (My Mom, Dad, brother-in-law and sister) getting ready to eat our delicious meal that Mom fixed for us!!! If you look on the wall, you can see a quilted wall hanging that I made my Mom. It has a cow on it.
Doesn't this look good? NC barbecue, field peas on cornbread, barbecue potatoes, tomatoes & mozzarella, cucumbers, fresh corn on the cob and a yeast roll. I ate too much!!! And as I mentioned earlier, we had peach-blueberry pie for dessert. And of course, being the Southern folks that we are, we had sweet iced tea with lemon to drink!
Here is my sweet Mom getting our dinner ready. She is a wonderful cook!!!
I just love my sister's front porch. This is just one end of the porch. There have been some good times out on this porch over the years.
Here is the other end of the porch. My favorite (and my girl's favorite too) is the porch swing. We love to sit on the porch swing and read!!! So relaxing!
I love this sign that hangs on the porch. Come and join us and "sit a spell". We certainly had fun sitting out on the porch last week.... talking, laughing, watching the world go by, working on our crafts (I was making a rag rug), reading, playing with the dogs, etc.
In the town near where my sister lives, the buildings have murals on them that have been painted by various artists. I only took a few pictures, but there are a lot more murals . This mural depicts the mountain music that is so popular in this part of the country.
Aren't the fall trees pretty? It won't be long and the trees will look like this in the mountains.
This mural depicts the New River that is in the area. In the bottom of the mural you can see someone riding in their canoe.
This mural is on the side of the cheese factory. I love the cow!
I had some pictures yesterday of my niece's flowers. Here is a picture of her adorable log cabin. Her whole front yard is wildflowers and it is just gorgeous!!! Speaking of canoes, she and her husband love to canoe and kayak. You can see the canoe in the front yard.
On the first day I was in the mountains, Adelaide and I met her sorority sister, Rachel, and Rachel's parent's for lunch. Our tea was served in Mason jars. For lunch we had meatloaf, veggies and cornbread. Yum!!!
I have one last round of pictures that I will post another day and I think that will be enough mountain pictures for one week.
