A Day spent back in time……..
Every third weekend in October the hills outside Marthasville, MO literally “come alive” with the sights and sounds of the 1800’s.
A full-blown antique German-American village sits on an 80-acre Missouri hillside, and home to the annual two-day event called Deutsch Country Days, where dozens of artisans demonstrate 19th Century lifeskills, drawing more than 11,000 visitors to the village.
Admission was little steep at $15/person. But going on Sunday we were able to take advantage of bringing a child in for $1 with each adult. So my mom and I went, as well as Sunshine and her best friend.
The weather could not have been more enjoyable. Not warm but not chilly. The only disappointment was the fall foliage is a little late here in Missouri, so we didn’t get to enjoy as much color as I had hopped.
BACK IN TIME………..
come along with us……………
the Luxenhaus Farm
We thought this little girl dressed in period clothing looked so sweet just sitting there by herself.
Sunshine and her BFF friend were a little bored, but I did manage to get one nice picture of the two of them.
There were lots of these gorgeous purple flowers
on the property!
Can anyone tell me what they’re called? I would love to get some for my house.
Thanks for coming along!
