Original Source: Something Awful has more of the letters
We visited the museum, then began touring various antique shops--for hours! By that afternoon, we were exhausted and had not been to all of the shops.
It has been years since we've visited Jefferson, TX, but when our kids were little, we saw Marcia Thomas' one woman show of The Belle of Amherst in Jefferson which was remarkable! You can see Julie Harris' version on Youtube, and it is worth the time. I've always been an Emily Dickinson fan.
Highlight: Kitt's Kornbread Sandwich and Pie Bar. A cornbread sandwich did not sound that appetizing, but we decided to give it a try--and hush my mouth and let's get on with the eatin'! Wonderful! As a Southern gal, I have had lots and lots of cornbread over the years, but never any this good, and as for the sandwich...an experience I will never forget and will be back for more. I swan, it should be on your bucket list to try one of Kitt's kornbread sandwiches. Now I'm a little hung up on Southern colloquialisms, but hey, if leather were brains, I wouldn't have enough to saddle a June bug.
Still working on leaves and have some soaking in a glycerin solution to see how that works.

The pear trees, which are usually breathtaking in the fall are all still green, but when they turn, I'll be there to pick them up. The leaves that are falling around here are nothing special, but I'm having fun with them anyway.
The photo above shows what the pear trees should look like by now.
I also have plans for a new project which will be getting some attention as soon as I have time.
I have several letters to answer and will be busy writing responses next week. :) Love snail mail, and I especially love getting mail from Bryce Eleanor who sent me a Halloween card.
I'm reading Melanie Wallace's The Girl in the Garden, and honestly, I was not expecting the kind of book that I will never forget. I have not finished, but already know it will be one of my all-time favorites. Will review on the book blog closer to publication, but I may have to buy a print copy when it is published.
Hope you all have been having a lovely weekend!
