Spoiled Rotten

I was completely spoiled this Christmas! I got so many amazing things! I loved all of them but the one's that mean the most are the handmade ones. My Dad refinished this print drawer that Mom bought in Germany. Apparently it was painted solid black so he had to strip it and then stain it- tons of work!! I LOVE it!! I can't wait until I get it hung up and fill it full of knick-knacks.


Growing up we always had two big floor pillows. They are wonderful for watching movies, reading books and having pillow fights. I mentioned to Mom that I would love to have some and she made me two for Christmas. They are gorgeous!!!

Amanda made me this incredible board with hooks on it. (I don't know exactly what to call it.) The best part- the hooks are made out of FORKS!!!! Isn't it beautiful?!?!?!



This isn't a handmade gift but it really makes me smile- isn't it so me???

What great gifts! I agree that those that are handmade are the sweetest. The year after my mother-in-law passed away, we decorated for Christmas with tears in our eyes. They were sweet tears as we hung the handmade stockings she had given us, laid the handmade tree skirt under the tree, and put out other handmade decorations that we received from her. I, too, think that these are the very best of gifts because they come woven with heartstrings. My dad is a lot like yours in his gift with woodwork. He made a pattern from a step-stool I grew up with and made one for each of his grandchildren. They are so well-made that we'll be able to hand them down for generations.

Um, and I need the sign about the elves. Do you know where it came from?

Those are wonderful.

Hmmm, perhaps some floor pillows are in order for my home as well...

Glad you had a wonderful Christmas.

I LOVE the forks! I totally want one too. Encourage her to sell them on TM's. I would buy in a heartbeat. The shelf your Dad refinished is beautiful. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun putting things on it. When it 's getting full you should take a pic and post it.
