Happy 4th of July!!

Happy 4th of July!

This past weekend I took Serenity and her BFF Kayleigh to Oak Alley Plantation
Oak Alley sits on banks of the Mississippi in Vacherie, Louisiana.
Jacques Telesphore Roman built the house in 1837 for his wife Celina.

Several movies and TV shows were filmed at Oak Alley - including Primary Colors, Interview with a Vampire and Ghost Hunters.
Beyoncé's "Déjà Vu" music video was shot here too!

The girls got a chance to explore the beautiful grounds and I was able to shoot a few photos of them in their adorable 4th of July cournteycourntey dresses. 

I love how cute they look!
They are such great friends and have a wonderful time together!

They had a lot of fun acting silly and running around under the beautiful old live oak trees.
Amazing resurrection fern grows all over the ancient giant oaks and moss covers their knotty roots.
Some of the oaks are over 300 years old!
The magnificent double row of oaks in front of the plantation make up the oldest alley in America.

Oak Alley is the perfect spot for pictures.
The sweet one below was Kayleigh's idea.

There are several huge cast iron sugar kettles at Oak Alley.
They were used to process sugar cane.

Now they are filled with water, lily pads and lovely flowers.

Perfect spots for pretty pictures!

If you're ever in South Louisiana, I definitely recommend stopping by Oak Alley in Vacherie.
And don't forget to sign up for courtneycourtney's dress emails! 

Have fun!!

Crochet Capelet Pattern by Baca Creations

I love the way it looks on Serenity!
Such a cute little Spring shawl.

It was so quick to work up!
The instructions are clear and easy-to-follow.
The stitches involved are simple so I think it's a good pattern even for for beginners.

This project is every inexpensive too. 
You'll only need two skeins of yarn to complete the capelet, a K size hook and a pom-pom maker.

There is no need to go out and buy a fancy pom-pom maker (but I love the ones from Clover), you can just make one out of cardboard or popsicle sticks!

Right now you can buy the pattern at Ravelry for a special introductory price.
You can also download it at Craftsy.

The .pdf download will include instructions for ages 1y - 10y.
Excellent value for only $2.50!

Have fun!
