BEAUTIFUL!

A friend and ex-coworker got married this past weekend. Jason was a ringbearer:



Donald was excited to get dressed up, too:



The venue, the ceremony, the bride - everything was BEAUTIFUL! Here is where the ceremony took place:


There was even a beautiful old log cabin quilt in the main house, framed and mounted on the wall, but I couldn't get a good picture because of the reflection off the glass.

So, another weekend down with NO QUILTING, but I had a great time. Oh, and on the way home, we needed a break, and pulled in at a place called Ellwood. It was an old, remote 18th century farmhouse that was taken over as headquarters for Grant's army during the Battle of Wilderness(?). It turns out that that cemetery on the property is where Stonewall Jackson's left arm is buried. (The rest of him is buried here in Lexington, VA where I work).

I do love that part of the world...so much history, lovely river settings and parks galore, but the population density really gets to me....in the 60's it was so different.
Hey I sound like a old person :0)...."back in the day". Well Jason in a tux is just too cute and those boys are just so handsome I just want to give them a big grandma squeeze!
They had a perfect day for a wedding too

Happy Sewing...when you get to it :0)

They are adorable! I love history, wouldn't it be neat if you could touch the old quilt and instantly know everything about it? I always think weird things like that ;)

Your boys look so cute! And Jason looks so grown up in his tuxedo. What a beautiful place for a wedding! I was all excited to hear about Stonewall Jackson's arm. I ran to tell my son. He said "I know." H knows everything there is to know about Civil War history and I thought I could best him. Shoulda known I can't *LOL* I love history too.
