Tuesday through the window

This weekend finally was our bazaar. And it was a great success. Every year we are dreading it and every year we are glad we did it again. This year we had decided not to take part with the crafting side but just concentrate on our"trademark" and successnumbers which are the gluehwein for the adults and the playroom for the children. More than 350 children came and enjoyed the simple but fun games. Face-painting, the balloon figures and the lucky dip were amongst the favorites as every year.

And today it tuesday again. This time a picture from the kitchenwindow where you can see one reindeer (the other one is in the garden) and Santa's sleigh. Santa himself is hanging on the outside wall. These figures were made years ago by a very dear friend. She gave them to me when she decided to move back to Oregon in the States. She probably will never see this picture but I am so happy with them and they are a proud feature every Christmas and a special reminder of a special friend whose company is missed by us.
In the right side of the picture you can see a lemontree but on the ground are the oranges that fall down during the storm we had this weekend with strong southwinds. Today there is no sign of storm and I am glad too because in 2 hours my youngest son and I are off by ship to the mainland where we will be buying his very first suit for the big schoolparty on Christmas day.

Wow another window view...thank you soo much for sharing. I LOVE the reindeer, and sleigh too, what a lovely parting gift to remember a friend every year, at this special time. Your Bazaar sounds like great fun and enjoyed by many.
That's a lot of children too!
How exciting your son's first suit...
Be safe.
