I received a gift today

Don't you just love receiving unexpected packages in the mail? Well it happened to me today.

My sisters came for a working holiday a few weeks ago and with that visit came some much needed opinions and observations to make my diner work a little more efficiently. My sister Liz absolutely wanted teapots, I was just using mugs. A butter scoop for pancakes and French toast, I was filling little paper cups, and an icing sugar duster, I've been using a small sieve which I store in a bowl and continually tip over getting icing sugar everywhere...not good when I'm busy.

We looked all over Powell River for these three items but only managed to buy teapots and I quickly forgot about the scoop and the icing sugar duster ( probably has a proper name but I don't know it) until yesterday.

Thanks Liz, I love them.

I've got mini clothes pegs waiting to be mailed to you. Perhaps you can use them to pin up your orders on that wire Art will put up for you.
