Amish & Mennonite Farms in PA

Amish & Mennonite Farms in PA

In December while visiting our daughter and her family
in the beautiful area around Lancaster, PA,
we took a ride through the gorgeous countryside
of rolling hills and Amish & Mennonite Farms.
I know that many of you have been in that area before,
but by 'popular request' I am posting some pictures
which I took on that excursion. It was a VERY cold, windy
day and we had just had about two inches of snow.
RELAX and enjoy the view!

Miniature Horse

One Room Amish Schoolhouse

Enjoy the beauty of God's creation!
Next week: A Mennonite Furniture & wood craft shop.
Have a blessed week!

Wilbur Candy Shop, Lititz, PA

We spent Christmas this year in PA where
our daughter and her family now live. Close-by in the
 little town of Lititz is a wonderful family owned candy shop,
Wilbur Chocolate Company, which is 145 years old.
One section of the shop has numerous candy molds
 and candy making equipment from early days.
I had more fun looking at them than all the different
 types of chocolate to buy! I thought you might
enjoy some of my pictures.
So sorry I couldn't share some of the chocolate with you!
They were totally amazing!

I hope you enjoyed this mini-tour!
This is also where there are many Amish and
Mennonite farms in the lovely rolling countryside.
I'll share those pictures next week, so please come back.
Blessings  ~>~>~>~>~  Mary Patterson

As a bonus each blogger participant will offer up a "door prize or prizes"....just for dropping by, saying hello and seeing their world. It's really that easy.

IT WILL BEGIN ON SUNDAY JANUARY 3OTH WITH THE FINAL DAY BEING FEBRUARY 17TH.(the day winners are announced) 2011. The new logo is above.......please take it - copy and paste it to a blog post letting your readers know what's coming and link back to THIS post.

The Last Beach Pics of Summer

Enjoy these last pictures of summer at the Outer Banks, NC.
These shots were taken on August 31, 2010
as hurricane Earl loomed on the near-horizon.
We are among the thousands trying to make the
wisest decision about if and when to leave.
Give us wisdom, Lord!
(Please read my closing at the end of the pictures.)


We do NOT own this house! Isn't it pretty... & HUGE!


Hope your summer was a happy and fun-filled one!
Be on the look-out for a contest & give-away on
my website, here on my Blog, & on my FB page.
 A big 'Reveal' will be made at the same time.

I am SO ready for Fall.
Are you?
(Please feel free to share a thought in your comment)
Blessings on you & yours!
