Good morning, everybody, from Mockingbird Bay Resort -- What a glorious sunrise we had...so thought I'd share! High temps will be around 50 for a couple of days. What a great way to welcome our Snow Birds from up north. Yes, we do have a limited number of cabins that we rent out monthly for folks who'd like to get out of the real cold weather of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Iowa, etc...and c'mon down for some fun at Mockingbird. We'll be welcoming our snowbirds in another week or so. Looking forward to their arrival! :) Call, if you'd like to head south for the winter and be a 'snowbird' too. 870-491-5151.

Mark you calendars and get ready to celebrate fresh inspiration at the Hill & Hollow Quilt Show at the Baxter County Fairgrounds coming up fast -- October 24-26. There will be over 300 beautiful quilts on display, plus lots of cool vendors, a country store (be sure to stop by and buy one of my Mom's unique flower pincushions!), lots of door prizes, demonstrations, a silent auction, and special exhibits and displays. Food and snacks will be available, so plan to eat there too! Doors open at 9:30 a.m. Admission is $5. *As a fellow quilter, I welcome all quilters and their entourages to stay overnight at Mockingbird Bay Resort in one of our cozy cabins. In fact, we will give a 20% lodging cabin special rate to guests attending the quilt show! :) (Mention this special when you reserve your cabin.) See our website for more info, and feel free to call if you have any questions or would like to reserve yourself a cottage.(870) 491-5151. See y'all at the quilt show!!! :) Cheers!

Seriously, lately we've had some of the most beautiful weather ever! Clear blue sky, calm lake, warm sun, cool evenings... Absolute food for the soul. I hear from the weatherman that it's even supposed to warm up a tad more as this week goes along -- so come on down to Mockingbird Bay Resort. Squeeze the last bit of Summer out before Fall truly kicks in.Try to get away for a quick cabin stay and recharge, rejouvenate, and replenish your soul. You'll be so glad you did -- and it'll be well worth it! See you here! Cheers! :)

Mockingbird Bay Resort guests from St. Louis who are known for their vodka jello shooters are in the house this Labor Day Weekend! New fangled flavors and colors are always interesting --this year's are watermelon, key lime pie, and chocolate raspberry...plus there's the usual staples: pineapple, orange cremesicle, strawberry, and grape. We wish y'all a fantastic Labor Day Weekend on the lake -- sorry, if we couldn't get you in this weekend...since all of our cabins filled up. Consider this: Perhaps you'd like to reserve a cabin in mid-October for some leaf-peeping / Ozark fall foliage / autumn color scenic tours! Give us a call, 870-491-5151, and we'll be so happy to have you.Have a safe and fun-filled weekend!See you here! Cheers! :)

It's the last weekend before school starts here in Mountain Home -- so time to get a little last-minute lakeside and pool-side time in. Luckily, the weather is gorgeous! All week this week and into Labor Day Weekend looks to be nice and sunny with perfect temps for outdoor activities. So try not to stress too much about school starting...there's still time to have fun on the weekends and holidays. Give us a call, if you'd like to rent a cabin! See you here! Cheers! :)

...to call and make a reservation for Summer 2014. Now is the time, if you have a large party and would like to come and stay in either our Lake House or Log House, to think about reserving for next summer. It really isn't too early to start planning about that sort of thing...if you want one of our 10-sleeper cabins, anyway. Many of our Regular Returning Customers who come back every year did "roll" their deposits forward, so sorry 'bout that...those weeks are already reserved. However, there are a few un-booked weeks for next summer (2014) where the Lake House and Log House are available for the taking, so check your calendars! First come, first served. (The deposit required is $400.)Also in regards to reservations, we have various openings this month (August 2013), and there are a few cabins available for Labor Day, too, if y'all feel like a 3-nighter end-of-summer vacation at Mockingbird! Fall Rates begin August 24th!!! :)So give us a call, 870-491-5151, and we'll be happy to take your reservation whether it be for next summer or next month! See you later! Cheers! :)P.S. Come on over to Pinterest and Facebook and we'll see you there, too!

Beautiful water, sky and scenery! Sometimes it's nice to just hang out on the Mockingbird boat dock and take it all in. :)This is what vacationing is all about...even when it's raining.

Horse racing at Mockingbird! Enjoyed some laughs and some betting the other day during the first ever Mockingbird Stakes horse races -- good thing we didn't bet with real greenbacks. Haha!

I'm loving this Disappearing 9-Patch pattern... Just tried it for the first time. The blocks come out so pretty and rather difficult-looking, when in reality it's super easy! Here, I've laid out 20 blocks in a sort of darker-then-lighter alternating row pattern, with all of the "darker", cut center blocks going in the same direction -- which draws your eye up the diagonal...I haven't sewn the blocks together yet since I'm still playing around, but you get the idea!A very easy block made with 5" squares that has unlimited fun potential. :)

A friend, Nancy, sent me some awesome pictures taken from her boat of the Mockingbird dock and beautiful, blue Norfork Lake on this hot summer day! This pic, when blown up, looks like an impressionist painting. I rather like the effect!
