Upon arriving home, Sam showed me the treasures she had purchased. Bessie and Mr Crumble joined me, gathering in my kitchen to view the loot.
The first thing was a beautiful sword! We were told not to touch it as it is very sharp.
Now, the thing about Elves is that we are very curious and swords have been a part of Elf history. I couldn't help myself. Wanting to know exactly how sharp it was, I quietly stretched out my little finger to just touch the edge when Mr Crumble yelled, "NO!" I pulled my hand back so fast, I made the table quiver! Mr Crumble apologized, saying that he did not want to see me get hurt. I apologized as well.
We then looked at a couple of wonderful metal cup holders with dainty little bells on top. Bessie squealed with delight when Sam said that it was a gift for her coffee and tea business.
Next thing I hear is her say, "Oh my, the room is turning white and spinning. . . ."
Then, BESSIE FAINTED! Goodness me! (My first aid kit is getting a good workout these days!)
Mr Crumble thought that it would be better if Bessie just sat down for the afternoon. She said that she was overcome with pure joy and the thought of actually having a business never occurred to her before. She was happy just making morning and afternoon tea for people!
We then looked at some assorted bottles. as well as the placemat that was a free gift for all of the mothers who attended the show.
The first 100 people to arrive at the show received a free gift. This is where I have to question, what were the organizers thinking when they handed out a cute little brown puppy? Puppies should not be given as gifts! It is a big responsibility and one not to be taken lightly!
He really is a cute little fellow, but I am only a renter at the moment and I know I cannot take him in. Luckily, Mr Crumble knows someone who lives on a big farm and needs a dog. So I know I will be seeing this dog again in the future.
Silly boy! He keeps licking my face!
Wow, this has to be the most fancy packaging of a product I have ever seen! It was from "The English Kitchen". Inside were two fabulous pieces of cookware for my new home. Of course, the owner of the store, Lesley Burgess, never sells her pots and pans without a delicious meal to go along with them.
Mr. Crumble got busy immediately, switching on the stove to warm up the food for dinner.
The aroma permeating the kitchen was intoxicatingly delicious, and we really enjoyed eating it! We will definitely be making these recipes over and over again!
Well, that's enough excitement for one day. Bessie is feeling much better now.
