……AND just in time for FALL!! If you haven’t already read about Sadie Mae, Toto and Rufus, then please allow me to formally introduce you to THEM! Have you heard of the movie “The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants?” You can call this story “The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Bag and Her Two Companions.”
Cindy, at the blog Rick Rack & Gingham, pioneered this awesome idea as a means to uplift a friend of hers who lost both her husband and her home this past April to the tornado that hit Alabama. Sadie Mae has been delegated as the pilgrim to make the long journey to 15 homes across the USA, the last stop back to Cindy. So that she doesn’t travel alone, her pals, Rufus and Toto, will be there to support her with their rough and ready attitude & their playful shenanigans. Along the way she will gather favorite recipes, state/hometown postcards, small gifts and words of encouragement from us gals who are participating.
Lets begin our first outing to a REALLY fun open house!
After a 25 mile drive, we arrived to the fall open house at American Country.
The trio is all excited to be there and couldn’t wait to sit amongst the pumpkins.
I did mention that Toto and Rufus love shenanigans! I see that I am going to have to keep a watchful eye on these two!
Lori and Mike brought the disassembled cabin back to Turlock, California from Somerset, Ohio and rebuilt it on their property. Lori had a darling shop in downtown Turlock, but has since relocated her wares to the cabin. For information about shop hours, you can call (209) 668-1888.
As a means to keep the length of this post down, I am sharing the outside of the cabin today. It is wonderfully decorated for fall, so please come back for some fall inspiration!
Sadie Mae takes a bit of a rest on the old bench…but wait, where are Toto and Rufus? Are they hiding amongst the dried gourds?
“Who’s there?”, says Toto?
He looks all around, only to hear sounds emanating from the roof-top. “It’s too early to be Santa and his reindeer! Rufus, where are YOU??!!”
With his tail tucked between his legs & a displeased look on his face, Rufus begrudgingly retreats back inside the little cabin…only this time to get stuck in the window frame!
It is going to be a busy few days at our little home.
