Scrapping the Blue Ridge Parkway

When DH, my Mom and Dad and I took a trip to Hershey/Harrisburg Pa a few years ago to experience a quilt show we took the opportunity to travel back on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We didn't do the whole thing only from Waynesboro, Va to somewhere near Staunton but it was a beautiful drive. It was heading into fall but still nice and warm.

I grew up making fall leaf trips to the Parkway and camping trips in the mts of Virginia and North Carolina and it was fun to share this part of my younger life with my DH who had never seen this part of NC and Va

We made a stop at a living history cabin near Humpback Mt. and our host explained that they are trying really hard to recreate life close to the turn of the century mountian "farm"> I loved the way they had used quilts...vintage bye the way...all through the cabin. It was a great stop and the host gave us some starts for plants because they found they weren't "authentic" to the time period so they had to go! Mine didn't survive the trip but I am pretty sure my Mom had luck getting them to grow.

Supplies used:
Magic kit from CTMH, cardstock and brads from my stash, Maya Road ribbon, sticky stitches, Thickers, CTMH stamp set...Reminisce (?), inking and journaling by me!

It was great to be creative in the scrap stuff again! LOL
