On our way was the Deja Vu Thrift Store that we stopped into & what finds I found there!
Yes, a great find for sure & is nearly 20 years old now & in perfect shape for not being under glass!
We found a great Dollar Store in Rexton, there was everything you could think of in there!
I found a summer table runner that I knew would work for an outdoor flag.
So I increased the pattern by 1/2'' all the way around & added one more fan & it worked!
So the first ones were made as accent pieces for the table runner & this one is a fan.
I think that the arms look like a Charlie Brown character! Hmmm, an idea for later...
More to come with this Kewpie Doll.
The 60th Anniversary of the Escuminac Disaster
Jocelyne, Joan, & I attended the opening event last night & what a well-organized event it was!
60 years ago 35 fishermen were drowned in a storm at sea & a documentary by Andrew King called 'Still Fishing' was shown talking with the survivors of that day & the fishermen that are still fishing. The widows & children that were left behind mourning the loss & the fishing village that came together for support is one of strength that I admire living in this area.
Everyone was involved bringing the community together to honour those that died June 15th, 1959 & it is important that this day be remembered & last night the thoughtfulness of all involved was apparent.
The secondary school project really impressed me!
See the blue dot? That is Hardwicke & that's where I live. See the red dot? That is where I use to live, today it is a seven-unit apartment & about 10 mins from each other.
There's so much talent in this area!
It really was a great evening!
Today there were five different church services honouring the dead & a Celebration of Life at the Escuminac Wharf from 2pm - 7pm with an hour Memorial sail for families of lost ones.
This is my 11th summer here on the east coast & every year the fishermen are honoured & remembered, this 60th Anniversary is one I'll remember & the cherished community that I now live in & this is now home for us.
I have the privilege to share this place with many this summer as they chose to vacation here with us.
I hope you too have a wonderful destination spot this summer!
Stay safe. Wishing you health & happiness wherever you are.
