Fall Craft Show

This was the first time for the Clinton fall craft show

Summer is now a distant memory..... snow on the ground

I was very pleased with the plants I started from seeds inside.  They thrived outside in the sunny area on the deck.  But, with plummeting temperatures, they have come back inside - and I am still picking and pressing!

Lucy is very interested

End of an Era

Well, the Era has actually only been three years, but still...  This was our first trailer, our first home away from home.  We had many plans for it, all involving gypsy like travels, stopping off at craft shows across the province and country.  These particular plans never materialized - for many reasons - price of gas, etc. etc.  However,  what did materialize was having a place to live when the inevitable happened after we moved to the Cariboo. We needed more income than we had, so we made the trek back down to the coast, Ron got contract work and we parked our little home in an amazing little rv park just blocks from the beach and close to friends and family.  We loved it.
Two very special visitors were Liisa and Roy.  Roy passed away in July, so these pictures mean a lot to me. 
We made several trips down to White Rock for work, and to Harrison Hot Springs to sell at the Art Festival, but all in the summer.  Our little trailer was not suitable for the winter climate.  This year we took the plunge and decided to sell it.  We brought it out of the barn, parked it in the yard and very sadly put it up for sale.
