Recently, I bought a plastic tea set for Ellie. I had wanted one that actually poured water...and didn't just play a squeaky tune. Been waiting forever for ELC to get the one in for me that I had my eye on. But then I found this great buy from Woollies, $15. Bargain. And, it pours beautifully and doesn't drip! It is really good for hand eye co-ordination and fine motor skills...and it's fun. There was also a mixmaster that I couldn't resist for $15. Elliana is yet to actually see her mummy use a mixmaster, but loves the way it whirrs and spins the beaters.
John called over after work one day, to visit with our little granddaughter, while I was there. I was able to take the following photos via his phone, as I never had my camera with me. They are not the best quality but they are so cute, I thought I'd post them here to share.
The shots were taken through the cubbyhouse windows, just on dark.
My hands might only be small, and not too elegant...but God made them creative. Hence, I will never have spare room in my house, due to all manner of craft items that have caught my attention. I find immense delight by being creative. I also love to draw. I just love creating. Having discovered etsy, I can create to my hearts content. My daughter, Jillian, prompted me to join with her in an Etsy store, and the two of us have been as happy as 'pigs in mud'! She is my kindred spirit...the woman I had asked God for when I was a young woman. I had waited so long, and wondered if He was ever going to answer my prayer when, one day, I turned around and found myself looking into her face....I just had to wait for my daughter to grow up! The other joy and delight that ranks high in my life, is our little granddaughter, Amazing elliana Grace. I could not have dreamed for a more enchanting grandchild. She always brings a smile to my face, and warmth to my heart.
a cup of tea made in a pot with loose tealeaves and a simple ham sandwich with real butter and freshly baked bread and freshly sliced ham. These two items always remind me of my sweet childhood days spent at nanna's house
miss you nanna
Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting at the end of a long day makes that day happier.
