To Market for Christmas,

Hi! everyone - Its time to update our blog, how the time is flying. Christmas is creeping up fast.

Christmas is my favourite time of year, time to unpack the beautiful decorations and transform our homes. This year not so much transforming for me as I am off to Mt. Isa for Christmas - via Townsville to pick up my Mum and visit my sister.

I know Lee-ann has started with her transformation and I'm sure our next blog will have some charming photos.

This weekend coming we are having a market weekend (weather permitting). Saturday at Lawnton showgrounds and Sunday Petrie Country Markets. Hopefully it will be a lovely weekend all round. We are looking forward to spreading the word about our website.

Wednesday we are off to visit my brother at his farm at Hayden near Crows Nest. Will post some photos next time as it is beautiful up there.

Will be adding a couple of new products on our website so drop in and browse away, there are some great ideas for Christmas gifts. We also have a free giveaway for the next 2 weeks.

Well blogging friends time to get back to painting a couple of small chairs that are being shabbied and going to the markets.
Till next time its bye from Lyn...

Ladies Who Lunch on Bribie Island

Well I have to be honest and say that Lyn and myself have not been too productive on our website the last few days as we have been busy playing ladies and enjoying every minute of it. Tuesday was Melbourne Cup so of course we had to go out for lunch. Thank-you to Cheryl and John for the great time we had playing our own homemade racing game. Lyn and I had intended to work on the website that night but I think we had one too many glasses of champagne.
The next day we were out for lunch again. Being semi-retired does have a lot of benefits. Our lovely friend Robyn hosted a beautiful lunch to officially say goodbye to The Tearose on Bribie. I think the fact that the lunch began at 11.30 and we left after 4.00pm says it all.
Robyn [with a little help from Sandy and Lisa] created a wonderful menu that everyone enjoyed. It was great to see a group of ladies all get on so well together. The afternoon was truly one to remember - good company, great food, a lovely home and setting on the waterfront of Bribie and last but not least plenty of champagne.
We must not forget the gallant males who [despite cold, showery weather ] sat out on the back deck to give the ladies freedom of speech. Truly we did invite them inside but they insisted they were happy where they were.
Thank-you again Robyn. We appreciate all the effort that went into making the afternoon a success for everyone. Don't forget that we have already booked in for next year.
This blog is proof that I am slowly getting back into work mode. Tomorrow I will achieve more.
Love Lee-Ann
