Aloha to the Strawberry Festival and Crafty Cupcakes

My family volunteered on Saturday at the Strawberry Festival.

The town of Savage grew in the early 1800s with its cotton mill. Our church was built by the mill owners to minister to the mill workers.  The church tower is now home to the original mill bell.

It's strawberry season ... and strawberry shortcake is a popular item to order!

The church ladies make tasty treats ...

... and crafty cupcakes!

Here's a close up of the crab ...

... the monkeys, and the long ear dogs!  How would you splurge your calories - strawberry shortcake or crafty cupcakes?  One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash.  Comments are open through Saturday, June 12, 10  pm in Baltimore.  I'll post the winner on Sunday, June 14, at SOS Aloha.
