So What Did You Do?

One of my sisters and her husband visited this weekend.  We went antiquing and we also went boating on a mountain lake.

The lake was called Fontana Lake and it is outside of Bryson City, NC.  We could not have asked for a better boating day.

I also did a little fall decorating to the mantel.

Sunday it was raining and cooler, so it is beginning to feel like fall here.

Now, to the answer to "Weekend, Where Is It?"

The first picture was taken in Provence France.

This second picture was taken in Flat Rock, NC at Sky Top Apple Orchard.

The majority of you were correct!  25 of you guesses Europe and 12 guessed USA. 

Come back next Friday for another Weekend, Where Is It. 

I was busy having fun with my sister this weekend and I see I have missed a lot of your posts!  I will catch up with you all later today.
Welcome Home,


  1. It's always fun to pal around with a sister! Your mantle looks so pretty, Penny.

    I weny to Manhattan both days this weekend ...lots of fun fall festivals are going on, and I visited the new "Eataly" Italian market that is in the Flatiron district. It was lots of fun to see all the products they had for sale.

  2. Love Fontana Lake. We almost bought a timeshare there but fear of timeshares stopped us. Glad you had such a fun time before the rains came.

    As usual, I reasoned wrong on the sheep. It would probably be better if I just

  3. Hi Penny, I missed your last post. I love your new idea and next time I hope I can guess too.

    I am at this very minute, sitting in Beverly's craft room and we are both using our computers. She talks to herself a LOT. HA! We are in town visiting our son who lives in Raleigh. I spent the night with Beverly and we are having so much fun.Bill is at our son's home with Cheri. We only have one day so we will fill every minute with laughter and gossip. Well, not so much gossip. Smile. Lots of laughter though.

    I have been to Fontana many times. A beautiful place to have fun with your sister. Love the antiquing idea and your mantel looks elegant and very fall. Mime is Halloween. I'll show it soon.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  4. Ah, Penny, it all looks so ... relaxing and gorgeous.

    Jeanne is, at this moment, sitting next to me having a cow because she has a typo in the comment she just left you. And, trust me, the picture of Jeanne having a cow is not pretty.

  5. Looks like you had fun while I was painting. I love your mantel and the vignette on it.

  6. The lake looks so pretty. Perfect for an end of summer/beginning of fall boat ride! Your mantle looks so lovely and ready to welcome fall. We are finally having summer here...105 yesterday!
    Looking forward to Friday with another guessing game. Very fun!

  7. Oh Penny I wished I had a sister to pal around with...How fun for you both...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  8. I missed your post but I will be back next week for the question!

    Looks like you are almost ready for fall...your fireplace looks so pretty and simple. I love that look.

    I'm happy that you had a good time with your sister. I love boating!


  9. What a beautiful lake! Glad you had some sister time. That's always a treat for me.
    What did I do this weekend? Lots of work in the garden. It's crisp and beautiful here. The antiquing happens Wednesday. Round Top here I come. ;-)
    Oh, I love the sheep photos. I missed them earlier.

  10. Hi Penny....I have been to Fontana Lake but it was when I was a young girl. Very pretty place! My SIL spent time there this past summer. Looks like you had a wonderful weekend with your sister!~Hugs, Patti

  11. Sounds like a fun weekend, Penny. It's always nice to spend time with a sister. I like your fall decorating on the mantel. It really is beginning to feel like fall!


  12. Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! The weather was beautiful on Saturday! But it's nice to get this gentle rain now! Enjoy your week! ♥

  13. Penny!
    Nice to finally come by and chat a bit! You know what's it's like relocating and all the work that's involved and add on launching a new business!! Goodness me what have I done!!
    Penny it feels great to be busy and back blogging! I've missed you and all my loyal friends!Your a doll for keeping in touch! hugs

  14. Looks like you had a great weekend! How fun to be with a sister. I love the mantel..and yay! I was right! ;D

  15. Weekends with sisters and lovely views, who could ask for anything more? Can't wait to see all your fall decorations!

  16. Your Lavender Hill Studio is very inspiring to me- I had a great time enhancing a table in my l.r. with mosaic tiles-what fun you must have-Thanks for your posts!

  17. I had to chuckle at your beautiful fall mantlescape. You can't squeeze a quarter turned sideways onto my mantle. Apparently my decorating style is "Clutter" /:

  18. Your mantel does look lovely. Sounds like a great weekend.

  19. Love love love your pretty mantle..So glad you had fun with your sis...

  20. It sounds like your having a grand time, Penny.
    I worked for the first part of the weekend - Saturday class to teach - and then relaxed on Sunday, getting ready to come up to Whistler today.

  21. We both had weekends involving lakes, how fun is that?

    Love your mantle. Is that an indoor "balcony" reflected in the mirror? I know balcony is not the right word but my brain won't access the one I want at the moment so balcony will have to do.


  22. What did I do this weekend? I spent it with more than fifty wonderful friends new and old at a ladies retreat in HOT, sunny Southern California. What a treat - but glad to be home again!

  23. Penny, I bet being on the lake this time of year is beautiful and I'm glad you had a nice time with your sister. Your Fall mantle is wonderful! Take care.
    Hugs, Sherry

  24. I love your fall mantel, very pretty and fallish :-), and that lake looks wonderful!
