A Winner & the Littlest Snow Shovelers!

We have a winner today! Using a random number generator, number 23 emerged as Kathy, of Troublesome Creek Quilters! Congratulations Kathy! I have emailed you, but in case you see this first, please send me your mailing address! Kathy commented that she would really love to remodel their master bath and make it into one large room rather than two separate rooms. I really had fun hearing what so many of you would do if you decided to remodel parts of your house!


The other day we heard a very loud knock at the door. I didn't see anyone through the glass at the top of the door. I assumed a loud knock would be someone big! When I opened the door, a darling little girl dressed in a pink parka was holding a large show snovel and her two friends - one even much smaller were outside, nearly finished with shoveling the driveway and sidewalk! She wanted to know if they could shovel for $1.00 total! I mentioned that it looked like they had nearly finished, so Mr. Squash and I proposed that we give them each $1.00 to finish the job! I couldn't resist snapping a quick photo of them hard at work! I'd say they really have the entrepenurial spirit at a very young age!

I meant to bring you some more before and after photos today, but we got sidetracked with putting our two trees in their stands over the weekend. It turned out to be nearly a day-long job - one that we don't want to repeat, so we decided to take yesterday off and rest! Please come back soon as I do plan to post more photos and - oh - have another giveaway (after all, it is the Christmas season)!

It isn't often that we see young ones out looking to make money any more. I'd be tickled if a few showed up here to ask to rake leaves.

Thanks for picking me for a winner! It was great to get home tonight and see your email.

Please send the snow shovellers my way, also :) I could use them.

It's always fun to see the pictures on your blog - looking forward to seeing what next year brings!

Such a sweet group of shovelers - so sweet! What a treat to have them in the neighbourhood.

What sweet little workers. Even though I enjoyed shoveling last winter, I wouldn't object to such a work force in my neck of the woods *s*

Congrats to Kathy on winning..That photo could easily be a card front. How cute is that...Leave it to the girls to be entrepenurial spirits...Our snow is all melted for the time being..

Anne said...

Sure wish those little girls lived near us. It took Mr CnW and me over an hour to shovel the other day. And.... he was using the snow thrower! Cheater!!!

OH, how sweet! The holly border makes it look like a little greeting cards.
They probably earned every dollar.
Congrats to the winner.
