Barn Stars and Corn Pies

The MAN and I spent a crisp fall afternoon with family and friends at the PA German Cultural Heritage Center's Harvest Fescht yesterday. My 'lil brother Steve was an exhibitor for the second year demonstrating the fine art of barn star painting. It's a must to go to this festival with an empty's an official rule, I think. We left home without eating breakfast (an unusual activity in this house) in anticipation of lunch there. First course yielded corn pies for my mom and I...mmm so good. But not quite as good as my own recipe! So note to self: Make it really soon! BBQ turkey, pork and saurkraut, chicken corn soup...on and on. I'll spare you the details of all of our trips back to the Old Time Plow Boys Kitchen. Let's just say I don't want to make a habit outa eating like that!
These are small hex signs he brought with himJust love this big one. I'm guessing it's about 7 feet square and incredibly eye-catching at that size. Steve gifted this to the Heritage Center last year after Harvest Fescht.I was excited to be able to pick one out for my birthday. This was my choice. Pretty, isn't it?
