"my dear Mistress Crocker, there is not enough fan fare for such an occasion", he snorted!!!
and so, without further adieu, he poked his snout into the end of the tin candle snuffer,
tossed it into the air
where it flipped precariously end over end
as if by magic
it landed perfectly on his bristled old head.
Right in between his sweet floppy
& spotted ears
"There now", says he, with a smile..."perhaps we can make something special of this occasion"!
and so, with that old tin candle snuffer as his Master of Ceremonies hat
the Honorable Fine Pigg schnuffled out (you can almost hear his accent, can't you?)
the names of 2 fine ladyes,
These ladyes will each receive a lovely pair of hand dipped beeswax candles that my
little family and I made this past fall in the old orchard.
and now Fine Pigg can go back to his nest in the old shoe...oh...I see he's already left....
thank you Fine Pigg!
Thank you all for your lovely notes of what makes you feel happy this time of year,
in between late winter & early spring. I was particularly happy to see that what makes us all happy are the simplest of things and yet the most valuable to us.
To all of you that live where it is snowing so wildly, we all send our best thoughts and prayers that you're snug and safe.
The sun will soon be out and melt it away into spring flowers.
I wanted to thank you all so much for your wonderful birthday wishes & greetings.
Some of you didn't have an email, so I thank you from here.
It was a lovely day out and dinner with family last evening.
~and oh yes, I did get my little tin nutmeg grater
and the lovely tin lantern for the barn is on order!
Won't that be a lovely light to carry out to the barn to make sure the hens are snugged for the night?!
