The Quilted Teacup

A quilters journey
Celebrating 75 years

Today was a fun day in our fair city.  We are celebrating being a city for 75 years this week.  Today was Downtown 1936.  Now you must know that downtown is three blocks.

My Friend Robert owns a fully restored 1914 two story home. And he gave tours to everyone. He also own Burch Creek Mercantile. ( The local ice cream parlor).  Several other businesses participated too.  We watched old movies at the theater house, Had two salons doing hair and makeup, and the wig shop was doing old time pictures from the 30's.

All this excitement got me ta thinkin.  Now I am a vintage type of Gal, Sooo believe it or not I went to my closet and put an outfit together for myself, put it on, and went down town.


Here I am at my friend vintage house.  (I should have taken pics of the inside) It is full of Victorian 1900 stuff. I don't think that all of it is his. I think the city helped him decorate for the celebration. I could be wrong.
