Fathers Day History

Father's day is a special day for everyone!
We use this day to honour our fathers all over the world!
We celebrate this holiday on the third Sunday in June.

A woman named Sonora Smart Dodd from Spokane, Washington,
thought of the idea for Fathers day while listening to a Mother's day sermon in 1909.

Her father, Henry Jackson Smart, had raised Sonora after her mother died and she wanted him to know how special he was to her.

Her father was born in June, so she chose that month to celebrate the new holiday!

As clear as crystal and as pure as snow..........

.... these are two qualities that can be found with this beautiful bear.

Exclusive to the USA and available through Apple Pie House.

Steiff and Swarovski have teamed up to make the 2005 ornament bear.

To order this wonderful piece, click on the heading above,
or search using the letters USA.

Farmer Graeme here.............

..... I have just been down to the Apple Pie House allotment,
and found the most amazing things growing there.

I couldn't believe my eyes, when I saw the Vegetables growing.

The potatoes had grown into Hippos and the aubergine into ducks.

The cauliflower looked like a sheep and the red onions are like a litter of cats,

the radish were mice and the courgettes were geese.

So I quickly picked all the vegetables and placed them in my trug,
as I did I noticed one other strange thing, they had all grown into the most useful of items.....

Money boxes.

So come and get them while they are fresh*,
to order these great pieces, click on the heading above.
