crochet, life, and a little of everything

This is the porch where Marjorie Rawlings wrote her books. The chairs have deer hide seats in them and the table is held up with a log.
This is a sign of Marjorie Rawlings last words in her book Cross Creek. I think if you enlarge it you may be able to read it.
This is the monument declaring Marjorie Rawlings house a historical land mark.

I have been having trouble with putting pictures on blogger but got through this time. I have a program that stops pop ups and when I try to put a picture up it treats it as a pop up and won't do it sometimes - but I was able to do it this time.

Marjorie Rawlings

On the trip up to Macon before Thanksgiving my daughter and I stopped in at the Marjorie Rawlings Historical Site. I have lots of pictures but I just have to move them from one computer to another to post them on my blog.

My daughter was able to get pictures inside the house because her camera doesn't need a flash. I will be posting more pictures later on.

Marjorie Rawlings was a northerner that came to Florida and fell in love with it and stayed. She is the author of The Yearling which won a Pulitzer Prize. It has been made into movies several times. She also wrote many stories and books about life in Florida in the forties and fifties. I have all of her books and short stories but alas there will be no more Marjorie Rawlings died in 1953 so we will never know how many wonderful stories she would have written.
