Backyard Granddaughters

Last weekend Heather wanted to see her brother, Jared, before he headed back home to Sterling, Alaska. We are still under lock down and social distancing. We know we can visit in our backyard with making sure to stay 6′ between us. It was hard to not touch the girls though.

Mad Hatter

Heather got the girls these cute little hat hair clips at the Christmas market. Bekka just really loved hers and wore it all the time.

I am thinking I can make this. Heather decides the girls should have one for every holiday. I give it a try and this is what I came up with.

Bekka was my little model once again.

Heather says, “Mom, you should make these and sell them.” So I made these.

They are made out of some felt, a little batting and some decorations. They have a hairclip on the bottom to put it in your hair.

I think I will get some more varieties of hat clips made and then see if I can sell them. What should I ask for them? Let me know what you think int he comments.

Thanks for stopping by!

Florence

Florence is one of my favorite places in Italy.  It is really beautiful.  We left our hotel in Montecatini and after about 40 minutes we arrived.  We were given several hours on our own to find lunch a look around.  David and I stopped for lunch at an outdoor restaurant.  I sat down and was trying to take my camera off when I found that my hair was stuck on the button on the back of my shirt.  David started trying to get it out.  Next thing I know our waiter comes over and starts making the motion of scissors with his fingers.  I am going no, no! Then a waitress comes over and is trying to help David.  David finally gets it out and everyone cheers him. I did get my pizza in Florence.

After our free time we went on the walking tour with our local guide.  I do enjoy these because they tell you things that you don’t read in tour books.  It was very interesting to see the marks that were on the buildings to show the flood lines.  Some of them were 6 feet up in the main square.  This still happens in modern times. Also, on the first Sunday of every month is “Sunday at the Museum” and there are no entrance fees so the lines are long.

David is at the Accademia Museum but the lines were so long we did not go in.  The photo that I have included is a replica of David.  I have seen the real one before on one of my other trips over here.  Besides I have my own David.
