Hello all, hope you are enjoying Labor Day and the end of summer celebrations. We have another two months or so before things cool off here in Florida. These houses and gates were in the village of Goritsy which is located on the Sheksna River in Russia. Many of the houses in the village were brightly painted, I have no idea why as we didn't encounter this anywhere else. I really think Kaffe Fassett should shoot his next book here. I can just see his quilts draped over those gates and picket fences, can"t you? And finally my daughter Natalie in Red Square. Happy Birthday sweet girl!
