Tam & I love receiving your latest in our mailbox. Crookes Hardware must be a fabulous place to visit. Its great to see that there are still hardware shops with everything under the sun out there. Wish we lived nearer so we could pop in. Like their website too hope they are receiving the best of both worlds. Victoria you are fabulous at capturing the heart and soul of whatever you paint. hugs Tam & Mary
Love this! My family name is Crook (no ‘e’!)and my parents owned a small grocery store in Gloucester in the 50’s, they also had a cat called Tibby that used to sit in the window!
My Dad later went on to become an accountant, such an appropriate surname for his new occupation don’cha think?? xx
Spooky !! I think “Mouse” in the window possibly looks more cat- than dog-like 🙂
Great name for an accountant ! lol 🙂
