Ohio Quilt Barn

I stumbled across this wonderful old weathered quilt barn 
on my way to my niece's wedding. 
I haven't been able to locate this barn on the Quilt Trail map
but it was near Hillsboro, Ohio. (Brown or Highland Co?)
 This starry block is sometimes called "Milky Way".  
If you are from the southwest corner of Ohio and have more info, 
please let me know.

Watermelon And Cantaloupe Baby

Isn't this just the cutest?
A friend made this delightful fruit presentation for my daughter's baby shower. 
A cantaloupe baby in a watermelon stroller.

All you need is:
  watermelon (stroller)
 cantaloupe (baby)
 orange (wheels)
blueberries (eyes)
other berries/fruit (red grapes and strawberries shown here)
a few toothpicks
a pacifier 
and a little bit of time to carve, chop, peel, and get creative.
