Country Hoedown ~!
To celebrate our Winter Solstice this year, we have decided to have a 'HOEDOWN'. Friends and family time which really is always so exciting for me. My Brother and his friend will be playing live music. This week the children and their neighbor friends, made decorations and helped me get ready for the event tomorrow night. They made tissue paper flowers, lanterns and painted the sign for the hoedown. Our school house is the venue for the night. I have cooked all afternoon. The last minute preparation left for tomorrow. Brogan made some homemade ginger beer yesterday. I see the raisins are floating on top already.
I also managed to finish Olivia's lavender scarf..She's beaming~ I have also revamped an old cupboard for her room. I am yet to decide what to do with it. A white wash paint with pink country roses for the front. I have always loved the idea of an atelier..a special place for all her arts and crafts. She is also desperate for a shoe cupboard. Time will tell
I too had my kitchen surfaces re-surfaced .. looks so much better.
I have not been around blogland for a while..I hope you are all well and in happy spirits.
A happy weekend to all~!
