Valentine Luncheon

I am sharing last year's Valentine Luncheon
at St. Anne's Anglican Church in Richmond.
A fundraiser to help this church in need.
A lot of hard work, time and effort goes into 
these fundraising events.
Because of the dwindling congregation
and an aging population,
this Church is struggling to stay open.
Another Luncheon is planned for this year.

Everything was beautifully set up when we arrived

A Sales Table, nicely set up
Marge Lancaster and Loretta Irwin 
Dedicated Volunteers
Lots of Green Items for Sale
St. Patrick Day is the 17th of March
A lot of Irish settlers in the Townships
Jewelry, red vases  and other things
Glassware, Crystal and Silverware
A lover of vintage glassware, this was up my alley.
I bought the yellow vase and 
other items that are no longer on the table.
My sister Ann who collects blue glass
 bought the vases on the right with silver bases.
Prices all under $5.00.

More Glassware, vintage vases, watches and linens
Baked Goods
More Baked Goods

Golf Books, Linens,  etc


 Elizabeth Mastine in the Kitchen, Below, Helen Knowles, Bev Jones and Ann Nixon

The Meal...A large selection of Casseroles, Soups, Salads, etc..
Rev. Wanda Dillabough gave the Blessing and drew the door prize.

A Large selection of Homemade Pies
(The pies at this end are Ann's Mincemeat Cherry.)
Rita Noel and Fran Cunningham were in charge of the pies

A Nice Turnout

Many years of Dedicated Service

The Church is not used in the Winter months because of the huge heating costs.
Part of the congregation,  approx 25 hold a service each Sunday
in the "Common Room"

Built in 1884-85 and consecrated
May 1900 by Lord Bishop A.H. Dunn.

My pics are dark..... I should have turned the lights on.

Valentines In The Mail

....✿*¨`*•. (¯`v´¯) (¯`v´¯) .•*¨`*•✿....

Valentines Day is just around the corner
I am sharing Valentine Crafts
and Valentine Cards I made
 to send to my Grandkids
These are simple paper Valentines,
easy and fast to make

All trimming from the Dollarstore
I used music sheets, cut hearts out, glued them to paper doilies.
Outlined the hearts with pearls.

Hanging in the Window, filters the light.

I have 4 Grandkids, Jacob, Louis, Mathieu and Sabrina.
I made Valentine Cards to mail to them. Jacob and Louis live at the other end of Canada, in Vancouver and Sabrina and Mathieu live 12 hrs. away.
Kids love going to the mail box and getting mail.

~~Childhood memories lasts a life time~~

I photocopied Music Notes on thick paper
ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ~ℒℴνℯ
Jacob  is my youngest Grandson.
He will be 5 in April.
Sabrina is the eldest,  10 yrs. old
Louis is 7 yrs. old

 Mathieu is 8 yrs. old

Happy Valentines Day

 of our works, and our deeds 

will continue on in others"

From Wikipedia:
Cobalt glass—known as "smalt" when ground as a pigment—is a deep blue colored glass prepared by including a cobalt compound, typically cobalt oxide or cobalt carbonate, in a glass melt.
