Shadow Shot Sunday ~ Lovely Young Ladies

A beautiful day in Big Sky country.
Gaye getting tips on how to make a braided rug.
The log buildings had already been auctioned off. Plenty of furniture for sale there.

Went to Rexford, Montana, last Saturday with my friend, Gaye. It was the first time I ever attended the West Kootenai Amish Auction. In the early morning I worked registration for our Kootenai River Run (first year I haven't actually done the run in a while) until a little after 9am. Then we took off for Rexford...the long route. 3 1/2 hours later, after a gorgeous drive through the Yaak country, we arrived. Trouble was all but 3 of the 186 quilts were already sold. Phooey! There were still some shadows to be found though. And also lots of yummy home-made ice cream, BBQ chicken and Polish sausages. I was totally captivated by how lovely the young Amish girls were. Tall and slender with a look of purity that melted my heart! Gaye and I had a grand time eating and talking and "window" shopping! I hope you enjoy these shots and get a feel for how sweet the day was.
For more Shadow Shots, please stop over to Tracy's blog, Hey Harriet. Hoping your weekend is going great.
love, Cassie

What beautiful weather! It's been cloudy, windy & rainy(ish) for the last 10 days, here. Nice to see some sun!

Lovely day -- thanks for sharing! I sure was surprised to read down and see that this was in Montana. Had no idea that the Amish had a settlement there. Those are beautiful -- and respectful --pictures. And the Kootenai is beautiful.

Six Amish lasses,
their backs to the camera—
modesty prevails.

Those Amish ladies look nice under the shadow of the tent!

Looks like a fun day at the Amish auction. I like the colors of the girls' dresses. Probably the quilts had some of those colors also. Nice shadow captures. :)

Paula Scott said...

how unique (at least, for me) to see a row of young, Amish women. Your whole day sounds like absolute perfection!
Great shadow shots!

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Looks like some great stuff at the auction! We are 2 1/2 hours away from lots of amish goodies....fun time visiting! Your home-made icecream talk is making us hungary for it though :)
Happy weekend!

What an absolute joy to have a little glimpse into an Amish Auction! Oh and the food sounds so good! I'm really really hungry now! Montana looks so beautiful. And it appears that you had perfect weather for your big day out!

The Amish are quite lovely. You've captured this.

Sarah said...

Your day looks like it was lots of fun Cassie! I would love to go to an Amish auction and see the beautiful work. The girls are lovely. Thanks for your visit yesterday.It was very windy when I took the roses picture-it is warmmer today! I am not sure of Dungeness is famous for crab. I know Cromer in Norfolk is. I did find a lot of crab parts-legs mainly-on the beach though so it seems quite likely!
