Xmas bazaar 2017 at Buckland St Mary

Wow, only a month to Christmas and the festivities have started already.  Yesterday was the Xmas Bazaar at Buckland St Mary village hall and we were on duty with the bric a brac stall again.  It’s surprising what people want to get rid of and give to us to sell, some really good stuff and some really not so good!!DSC01841

There were a couple of Xmas hats for sale, so I modelled one.  I really thought these would sell but no luck, so I will save them for our Xmas singing at the old people’s homes.

Father Christmas was there seeing all the little children in his grotto.

There were craft stalls and raffles, tombolas and cakes, all the normal stalls.

Plus the usual afternoon tea service which always goes down well, especially with added cake!!

We made £53.55 on our stall, not a great amount but £53.55 more than if we had stayed at home.  Overall £850 was raised for everyday church funds so a worthwhile effort.

The B&B is open now for bookings during December and Xmas. http://www.lodgehouse bandbsomerset.co.uk.

Painting of Lodge House

This year for our anniversary Neil’s sister commissioned a painting of our house, oil on canvas.  It is a remarkable likeness and very well executed.

Neil found a suitable frame in a charity shop of all places, and today mounted the painting.  We now have it hanging in pride of place above the front door.

So everyone will see it as they leave.  It’s marvellous that it just fits perfectly.

Our porch is quite busy, with shoes and coats and other pictures but the painting looks the business above the door.
