gifts

i have a hard time receiving gifts. i guess i feel like i don't deserve them or something. but people have a hard time shopping for me at Christmas because i won't tell them what i want. so this year my husband went out on a limb and made me something. he is a carpenter so it's not like it's not something he knows how to do.
the kids helped and he told a few people. and they all kept the secret. i was so excited to get it on Christmas morning. and this is it.

he made me a jewerly box! isn't it beautiful? i love it. he is going to make some dividers to go in it so my earrings don't get mixed up with my necklaces. what a great hubby!

That is a beautiful box, Kay. It's got to be a very special gift since it was hand made by your hubby.

What a sweet gift. It seems like those handmade ones always mean so much more. Kudos to the hubs.

gorgeous!!! How nice to know all those hours he spent planning, and doing, and thinking of you! Waaaaayyyy better than some perfume picked up on Christmas Eve.

That is a GREAT gift!

How sweet to think of something you would want. One of the things my hubby gave me was a Wii game. Hmm. That most definitely was not for me. Bless his heart. But he's been enjoying it ever since!
