Digging up some old photos this week for Thursday Doors. Circa 2011. The above directions come from RoadsideAmerica.com and has a good read about a debate on where Daniel Boone’s actual remains are buried.
We had spent a Sunday looking at campsites in eastern Missouri and were on our way home when we stopped here at Daniel Boone’s home.
I think I just wanna camp here 😉
This was pre-Thursday Doors and so the full door view is not available. Maybe a drive back is in my future (& possibly an actual tour).
It’s a pretty good jaunt up the hill to see the property. Dodging oncoming vehicles is a strong possibility depending on the time you arrive. I think you can tell that my youngest is going at a pretty good click in those flip flops just by her pose.
I did ask permission from one daughter before posting this one.
And a cropped version for your reading pleasure.
This delectible gelato has absolutely nothing to do with hand made items.
Except it was my reward for spending this weekend using up some cotton yarn.
After I ran out of chocolate.
For the genteel among us, the Womans Building was built following a need to give women and children a better place to rest at the Missouri State Fair. The philosophy of the times dictated that women and children be segregated rather than encouraging family togetherness. The desire to improve conditions for women and children followed the popularity of the first one built at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.
Full view of the current building. In the back and on the ground floor of the building is a museum of the history of the Missouri State Fair. And it’s also a little more like a basement and a good place to spend time during severe weather. There always tends to be at least one heavy storm during the fair each year. When you live across the highway from the fairgrounds for as many years as we have, you tend to recount these things pretty accurately.
Original cost is said to have been $30,000. An investment well spent.
I took a step back in time this week for the photo challenge. During our youngest daughter’s graduation party, a few photos were taken inside Hotel Bothwell.
Responsible for it’s establishment in 1927 was local historical figure, John H. Bothwell.
The Ballroom has it’s own ambience with the details and warmth.
But those chandeliers!!!

Back to Windsor, Missouri this Thursday. Known as the Crossroad where the Katy Trail and the Rock Island Trail intersect. Protocol took over as I did a Drive-by ‘shoot’ with cell phone camera.
Ceremoniously decorated for the upcoming Christmas season in this early December version of the First Christian Church’s doors. I haven’t been inside, but maybe I’ll check it out on another day….
I love the little side doors to churches. They often have such subtle details. Those side doors come in handy when I want to avoid all the social stuff. Slipping in unnoticed is my style. Or at least I try.
And without doubt I am loving the home in the background. That door and porch with the balcony look like a good spot to sip some lemonade come summer.
This is the stuff that the hubster has lovingly declared as my own personal truth serum. After a taste testing of each flavor(thank you to my sister for the gift) — ok maybe a little extra from another larger bottle, , there was a warning sent out to my daughters that no telling what I will state, but it will be most definitely truthful.
I will be more careful to not indulge after a stressful moment in my life….
unless need be 😉
When enlisting my husband and eldest daughter on my ‘hunt’ for doors, we had a perceptual experience together. We gazed upon this particular door in downtown Lawrence, Kansas and did a little window shopping as it kept us a little bit sheltered from the cold breeze.
And almost simultaneously, we seemed to all realize this door could be reversible if it wasn’t for the little light fixture. Look at the next pic and maybe you’ll see what we mean.
Maybe I should have done a little photo editing and removed it?
Would you have noticed it was the same door?? Yeah, probably. lol
Not everyone can say they have a sister named Barbie. I can and she definitely scored on Christmas Day with being the “Hostess Superlative” for our family get-together.
But the Sunday Sampler ‘Barbie Score’ has another twist.
This gem came in the mail from the hubster! Let me explain to you how rare it is lately to find Ken doll clothes patterns. Barbie rules the roost without a doubt. My dilemma is compounded in a daycare with 1 girl versus 7 boys. When it’s time for my Miss Emmi to play with the dolls, the boys are surprisingly eager to join along, provided there are male counterparts.And there are only so many clothes for those ‘Ken’ dolls. Mainly just shorts. And the boys are a bit indignant on this subject. So part of my time off for Christmas break is preparing to make some of these poor neglected AquaMen/Spidermen/Kenmen their own line of clothing. Wish me luck!
Happy New Year Everyone!!
