JYC 3 – Gifts

sevilo-signsevilo-sign-close-upIt’s hard to choose “the most perfect gift ever received”, but the “Sevilo” plaque, handmade by Rose, that we received for Christmas 2005 must be one of them. The families gathered at Kaitoke park in mid January to “do Christmas”. When Rose presented the heavy parcel to Richard & me as our joint present we had no idea what was inside. The sign (featuring our property name – derived by spelling ‘olives’ backwards) was beautifully designed and featured my favourite colour combination (yellow & blue). It must have taken Rose many hours of patient work to complete. The sign hung on the side of the garage at Fantail Grove until we sold and moved away mid-year 2016, but we didn’t sell the name “Sevilo”, which has come with us. We are building a garage at our new place, and surely we’ll find a good place to install the plaque so that visitors will always be sure where they are.
