Where does my joy come from today....
.... daughter Sarah came over this morning to take me to a Lady's Fair. Her boyfriend's sister organized it in the town park. The vendors were all women who run their own home based businesses. Farmer's wives who make lotions and candles, Tupperware, Pampered Chef, clothing and makeup and soy candles, jewelry etc. It was so much fun. We took my old puppies with, and they loved hanging out. When they got tired, we took them home and went back for more fun. It really was a small venue, but everyone was so friendly and chatty. We had a fabulous day! I bought some soy wax cubes, sugar cookie scented that I put in the hand made warming lamp my Mom had given me as a birthday gift in summer.
.... using the tea set I bought on the North Sea Coast in Germany in 2001 before we moved back to the US. It has been a really long time since I have used it I had it in the attic since I had no safe place to put it all these years. Now that I have a china cabinet, I have it in the dining area. It was so nice to set the table and we felt so nostalgic using it.
.... when my parents visited in Summer, my mother brought me a very special gift. The cake plate my grandmother had given her. We used that to put a few pieces of cake and a few Sandies on there. And we used my cookie tongs to serve. And then we sent my Mom a picture in WhatsApp, so she could take part in our afternoon tea. It made her so very happy.
