Weekend Round-Up

Along a busy county road that meanders past several lakes stands Foxie Roxie with a  friendly wave to all who pass by. 
Each weekend her attire changes sometimes even twice a day. This outfit came from the Longville thrift shop, Tossed and Found. She's ready to party with her boxed Barefoot Wine nearby on the stump.  She makes me smile every time I pass her by. Foxie Roxie does her community a service. She's  across the street from a busy lake entrance and manages to slow the traffic down to check her out. 
Foxie Roxie has become lake favorite. She now has her own Facebook page.
This was yesterday's outfit
