Summer Event at the Wonderful Westover Farmers Market in Arlington, Va.

Many of you know I’m a long time sponsor of the Westover Farmer’s Market. I’ve been doing this since it’s inception because I believe it’s best to buy local and it’s wonderful to have this in our community. On Sunday along with my friend and realtor Jody Chittum and lender Ed Duncan, I will holding raffles for some wonderful freebies including a Yeti Cooler, yeti coffee mugs, bamboo cutting boards. We’ll be passing out free flower and herb seeds and will have a face painter for kids (or more adventurous adults). Please come and say hello. And remember if you ever have a real estate or community question always feel free to contact me. I’m right here in the neighborhood. Jane Jensen 571-228-5656 janejensen4@gmail.com

I love Halloween in Arlington, Va. Check out these decorations.

Who doesn’t love Halloween Decorations. There’s the Scary and the Spooky and even the Kooky.  Here are a few photos and a video that I took on my walk around the Westover/Overlee Knolls neighborhood in Arlington, Va. this morning. Boo!

I thought this one was particularly creative. Sccreaming Skeleton covered with spiderwebs and spiders tied to the bushes.

This one made Teddy the Dog Bark. I give it an 8 out of 10 on the Creepy Scale.

Here’s Teddy checking out the flying cat and wondering if it takes off, will he catch it. I’m sure he’d give it a try.

Yes, this is a pigwitch. Yes, it’s on my porch. Happy Halloween!

 

Post your photos in the comments if you like or email them to me at janejensen@comcast.net and I’ll post them here. Boo!


Westover Village in Arlington, Va.-My “walk to” neighborhood

I just posted a link to an article talking about how Arlington is one of the most walkable cities. I live near the East Falls Church Metro and my “walk to” neighborhood is Westover Village. The commercial area of Westover is located on Washington Blvd between N. Mckinley Rd. and Longfellow Streets. The businesses here and the the library provide a modern urban feel to this neighborhood. Residents in this area also have easy (healthy walk, or metro bus) access to the East Falls Church Metro.

In Recent Years, the Westover Beer Garden has provided a neighborhood gathering place. On warmer evenings you can find gatherings of friends and families listening to music and sampling some excellent craft beers. The beer garden also now has an indoor bar and restaurant. The adjacent grocery has a decent stock of must haves.
