We've whooshed through another week to another Friday! In fact, it's the last Friday of another month down the drain! Slurp!
But never mind about that. It is my pleasure to help you halt time for a few minutes while you are here enjoying this reminder: we are halfway through the current challenge at Uniko. It is an honor for me to be co-chairing the podium as Guest Designer with the sensational Wiebke!
No, none of those things. This sweet home^ is in the town of Valentine, Cherry County, Nebraska. The home was originally built in 1922 by the mayor, Rutherford Harvey, for his bride. Rutherford was lucky enough to marry one of the daughters of Edward Valentine, the town's founding father. Her name was Lacey.
The Harvey-Valentines were well-loved by the citizens of Valentine. Together they had five children: Lavender, Lilac, Persimmon, Rose, and Pepperoni. All of the adult children and their children currently live in other fairy tale houses on the 750-acre homestead. This main home is the residence of Lavender and Lilac, both widowed. Once a year, the entire family opens their hearts and homes (and homes with hearts) to the public to celebrate "SUMMER" from August 21-September 4! Here at Uniko, and we hope in all of Blogland, we are celebrating right along with them!
My cousin Eunice happens to be the Foyer Florist for Rose (who, if you can believe it, married Stephen Bush!). I made this card as an inspiration for Eunice and to inspire you to play in the challenge.
I do hope you will join in the fun at Uniko! I know there are tons of details in the photo that you can draw inspiration from. Or just make a card with flip-flops or sunshine or anything that makes you think of summer!
I've made a QACAS Christmas Card.
Time is running out for linking sponsors, so if you are on a DT for a company that you think might want to sponsor this next NBUS Challenge, have them contact me at darnell dot knauss at gmail dot com. Thank you!
^Everything regarding the home is a total lie. I'd love to hear what you think the story is!
