~A Cabin, a Cottage and a Giveaway~

When we passed through my childhood hometown, last weekend, I took the opportunity to snap a photo of this log cabin. I altered the photo, giving it a vintage postcard look. This is the cabin where I had those long ago drawing lessons, spoken of in a previous post.

I've been a bit nostalgic the past week or two. Perhaps the reason is my
approaching 64th birthday. I'm remembering my teen years, in particular.

The photo at right was taken last weekend. This is a quintessential Ozark cottage. Set among large shade trees and faced with stone, native to southern Missouri, this cottage holds memories of happy times. I was welcomed as a guest here, many times, as a teenager. It's the childhood home of an old friend. We still stay in touch, daily. J and I have been guests in her home many times and she and her husband have been guests in ours.

I still remember what this home's interior looked like. Imagine it dressed in the true style of the 1950's and you will see what I remember.

I am planning my 64th post on my 64th birthday, Wednesday July 25th. On that day, I will announce the winner of the vintage apron, cookbook from the June book fair and a bookmark, made by me, pictured in the above photo. To be eligible for the drawing, leave a comment on this post. I will gather all comments and draw the name Tuesday evening July 24th at 5PM (CDT).

My thanks to everyone for your kind comments and words of encouragement! I'm truly enjoying the Land of Blog and you, my friends, make it all the better!
