Star-Spangled Weekend... Part 1

Stitched these patriotic fabric-paper birds in time for the 4th of July, Independence Day. They look cute hung in a window.

And Saturday we went to the quaint village of Micanopy near Gainesville, FL, for their annual 4th of July Parade. It's the best small town parade... great fun. The event includes all sorts of groups and displays.

Micanopy is a beautiful village where the movie Doc Hollywood was filmed, and it's also the home of the historic Herlong Mansion B&B shown here. Interesting shops and antiques dealers line the streets under the shady oaks. And the place comes alive with families,friends, and patriotic displays every year on the 4th.

There were lots of vintage cars in the parade, many in red, white and blue. I love these old cars. And there were bikers, too. Plus much more to show you, including the popular "Cracker Cowboys", coming soon in Part 2! It was a fine day.
