The Lion's Club Fall Car Show

Escalon's Lion Club had a very successful Car Show this past Saturday. With over 280 cars entered, food courts, vendor booths, raffles, 50's music and just a lot of fun for family and friends. I think all of the shops and the Cafe were very busy on Main Street. The weather was cooler and we even had a few showers in the morning.

So many cars to look at. It was hard to pick just one car as your favorite, they were all so nice.

It was very nice to have the cars parked on the grass, it made the walking easy on the legs and it was cooler than the heated pavement. Important things when you get older!

The showers seem to clean the air and drop all the dirty dust on the beautiful old cars. Fortunately a few towels and a little elbow grease and they were sparkling clean again. Rain-rain go away! All these little boys want to play!

Here is Madison looking at all of the trophies for the winners in the car show. Madison came to help her Oma for the day at the store. Thank you sweetie for your help. I had a Fall Harvest Open House and it was a busy day for The Green Pea. The Oakdale Art Club had 20 members showing their art work in my store and that was a real treat. Thank you to all of the members for sharing your works. They are a friendly group with a lot to offer their members and the local communities. I was please to hear that they had some new sign ups for membership. A special thanks to Janet, Dorthy and Anita for looking after all of the art work, Friday and Saturday.

Oops! one more pic (blog meeting)

Fun Meeting New Blogging Friends

Last week I was asked by these three lovely blogging ladies to join them for breakfast . I know Miss Jean from In The Garden with Miss Jean and Becky from Sweet Cottage Dreams, but Dawn from Cottage State of Mind was new to all of us. So we met for a wonderful breakfast at the local Waffel Factory. We were all having a good time laughing, telling stories and talking about our families and of course our dogs. It was time for me to open, so we headed to the store for a few more hours of fun. Dawn had made a Pupcake for each of us, they were so cute. It had two 1930's Scotty dog candle holders on the top, she also used a 1930's plates to set the pupcakes on. Dawn found the Scotty dogs and plates in the attic of her 1930's Bungalow home. You can find the directions on how to make the cakes on her blog. She also had a copy of the cover of a 1930's Sunset with a sweet little girl and a Scotty made for each of us. Just for the record both Jean and Becky are the proud owners of Scotty dogs and they are all soooo cute too! Check out their blogs and you will see for yourself. Sweet Becky had a gift for us too, thank you for the cute little note pad, magnet and book marker. The day was so much fun that I hope we have another one soon.

Dawn found just the right Fall color tie for her dog Sunny. I bet you look cute Sunny.

Burlap table Cloth

What do you think about covering a few of my display tables with burlap table clothes? I love the texture and color of burlap.
