Oh, a Special Present From Across the Pond!

Those fun loving twins of mine just got back from Scotland and Ireland

I asked them to bring me back something special...

Something to commemorate the birth of
Prince George!

They toured the Royal yaht Britannia
that was the only place they ever saw any Prince George items?

I am happy with what they found
this cute tea towel with their names and George's birhtday
all in front of Buckingham Palace

So glad to have a little piece of history


I have never gone this long without doing a post!
The planning for the Charleston Riot is taking up most of my free time.
Alot of trips back and forth to and from 1515 for meetings.

Mr. is going to Charleston this weekend with me and I am glad to get away together.
Cousin Fred is hosting a Labor Day cookout.
Usually it is truly our "Labor Day" at 1515, the cousins get together to clean, paint, repair and do what ever is needed to keep 1515 our little family get together home in shape.

Our Fundraiser for our event is in 3 weeks and I have been getting donations, selling tee shirts!
I will be on WRJM radio on Friday Sept 20th to talk about it, I have NEVER been on a radio show before! yikes!

BIG thanks to my dear friend Paulette from Cheerful Thrifty Door
your tee shirt will be sent today!

Everyone have a happy safe weekend!

Love that tea towel! It reminds me that I have one tucked away some place from Charles and Diana's wedding. I wonder what I did with it?

Now that's a fun piece to add to 1515. I love it. It will look good in the kitchen there with all your blue and red and yellow.
Its been awhile since I have been around, so good thing you haven't been posting! I always catch you on fb anymore anyway, so I know you are still kicking.
