Guess who gets the business when we retire!!!!!!
and one more picture.....a cute little story....Blakely made this "tin can" reindeer in Nursery School last week....she couldn't wait to show me cause "Grandmom likes things that are rusty looking" !!! Bless her heart!! Here is a picture of her "reindeer".....
AND the day was not over....Joanne from http://snippetsandscrapsandpieces.blogspot.com/ stopped in with a PRESENT too.....(what a fun day) !! She "hooked" this "snow" ball ornament for me. What a wonderful gift - I have it hanging in my kitchen already....on an olde pig hook!! The card was perfect too....Thank you again Joanne!!!
Today was just an awesome day !!! Started with having Blakely - my 5 year old granddaughter - going to work with me today so her Mom ( my DIL) could finish up all her odds and ends (wrapping for four kids and lots of family) ! I offered to do this and what a fun day we had together. You can tell just by the smile on her face. She is NOT shy and talked with all the customers - of course Grandmom has stickers, glue and lots of glitter to make things...She spent some good time up in the attic making Christmas gifts for what she calls ''My Family" and some for herself!! She was a real trooper and quite the little helper. (She also told me that I should pay her $100. cause she worked hard) !!!
We stopped at the Post Office before opening and there was a PACKAGE waiting for me....my Sweet Christmas Tillie that I won on Lori Rippey's blog give-away... http://www.homespunprims.blogspot.com/ was in the package. Okay...here goes what I can only describe as one of the best handmades I have had the pleasure to own. AND I am no easy pushover when it comes to handmades....I KNOW WORKMANSHIP MADE BY LOVING HANDS - I have been around for a LONG time and have seen much... I sell handmades by some of the BEST Folk artists and this sweet little girl is one of the best crafted dolls. If you get a chance to purchase a doll from Lori - DO IT -.....you will NOT be disappointed. Here she is seated in a chair I had just waiting for someone to occupy!! (this little chair belonged to my daughter when she went to kindergarten, we purchased it along with a "desk" from France for her) !! Here is the desk and chair...AND CHRISTMAS TILLIE!!!!
