Sunday was spent at Gran's ( Mum's) where Kate and two of her friends held a Christmas stall to raise money for charity.

Christmas stall at gran's

They were so well organised and had lots to sell but the weather was against them.

Still they had a wonderful time, made $25 and sharpened their marketing skills.

Gran's garden

I think Mum and Dad enjoyed having us there.
Mum made us lunch and happily opened her home to the girls, Mum even made a sign for them to put up near the road to attract customers.

The picture above is part of my mother's pride and joy, her garden.
Very pretty.

Sorry to be so slow getting the mermaids and pixies in the shop.
We have had more appointments today and yesterday I was out of the house all day.
I am now aiming for Wednesday providing everything goes well for Kate tomorrow.

  1. Recently discovered your blog, love your photos and stories of your home life. A wonderfully calm oasis to visit. Well done to Kate on selling her crafts. Your Mum's garden is lovely - we're in the depths of winter here(UK)so it's bracing walks and cosy fires for us.
    Thank you for letting me visit your home and good luck for Kate's op tomorrow,

  2. I'll be praying for Kate's surgery today and hoping that all goes well. I enjoyed the glimpse of Kate's stall and your Mom's pretty garden. Tell your Mom that I wish that I could walk around the garden with her and have her tell me the names of all the flowers. My mother and grandmother were both avid gardeners.



  3. Best wishes for Kate tomorrow - and for you!
