Canada Day 2

Good Morning Lovely Readers

The day after my arrival in Canada, Ruthie had arranged for us to go to a health spa in the blue mountains called The Scandinave.  The Scandinavian Baths experience includes a Finnish Sauna, Eucalyptus Steam Room, Thermal & Nordic Waterfalls, Hot Baths and Cold Plunges. It was wonderful and the perfect antidote to a long flight. Ruthie had even arranged for us to have massages.

I can honestly say it was one of the most relaxing experiences of my life. Thanks Ruthie.

You may remember that I had made some clothes for Ruth's daughter's children, Eden and Rosie. Here is a picture of Rosie wearing one of her dresses. This is the first picture I have of one of my creations actually being worn so it is very special. She is the most adorable baby:


                                                             Rosie and Mama, Shaaron


Shaaron sent us a photo that evening of Rosie with her ribbon taggy. Shaaron says they are really expensive to buy and both Mama and baby seem delighted with it - that's good enough for me.

Yesterday Ruth celebrated her 50th Birthday with a vintage tea party and although I was sad to have missed it, she looks spectacular and it looks like everyone had a wonderful time. Here is my special friend enjoying her special day:





Enjoy your Sunday
Love Mrs Thrifty
