Good things come from Buderim! I love Ginger Beer and Ginger Bears that come from there but I also love the present that I received from Chrissie yesterday. (I should mention that Ginger Bears are great when you have an upset tummy or feeling queasy when travelling, we keep packets in both our cars plus one in the cupboard. Plus they are nice especially if you like ginger)
(Something 'magical' has happened while I was doing this post - I was going to say that Kate Hampson, an "olde friend" of ours also comes from Buderim and I was going to link her name to her blog but it wouldn't work ........however, I have discovered if you click on the parcel above it takes you to Kate's blog!! See I am still learning.......)
Chrissie sent me a lovely notepad and a pen in the shape of a rolling pin - it is really nice to write with too! Thank you so much Chrissie. Just finished this "doll" today for an order - "Sojourner Truth"- she is based on a real US lady from the 1700's who became a preacher and prophetess and fought for the rights of women. I think she must have been 'ahead of her times' and a real inspiration. I wonder if there has been a movie made about her - it would be the kind that Oprah would make and star in...... If you want to read more about Sojourner Truth you can here.
I had hoped to get some photos from what Marion is doing at the moment, but I have had a sick boy home from school since last Wed and haven't had the opportunity to go there with camera in hand. She has been baking for lots of orders - Mud cakes, cupcakes, lemon meringue pies, Apricot Dacquois, quiches....just to name a few. And not to mention the crafting side of things as well.
