Early Christmas presents!

My husband and kids came home from antiquing the other day and surprised me with a couple of things.


Look at this silver beauty! My daughter didn't want my husband to buy it, she said it was ugly. I love it! I love that it looks like it was hit by an ice storm. It feels like ice too, its surprisingly heavy! I think it works with my snowflakes that are hanging from my branches.





I also received these silver salt and pepper shakers and since my husband picked them out my daughter just thought I should have the roosters! Before I opened them up she said mom these are going to be your favorite! What do you think, are they me? Of course they are my favorite, they are from you! The picture I found for $5.00 at the GW. I swear I should start my own shopping business for people. Whatever you are looking for I'm your gal!



Well I'm off to bring my son's saxophone to school yet again. I think I reminded him 3 times this morning but here it sits! Boy is he lucky I am such an awesome mom!

Happy Tuesday!

I love your little tree...but what amazes me more is your statement, "My husband and kids came home from antiquing". Kids antiquing? How foreign to me...my kids would have pitched a fit if I even suggested that to them. You really are an awesome mom!!!

The tree is totally cute. I can't believe your hubs and kids went out on their own. This would never happen at my house. :)

I love the tree and the snowman picture!! I wish my husband would be into antiques as much as I am...he is more of a modern contemporary stuff...
Following you back! ;)

Love that tree Megan! I cracked up over the SAX. I refuse to bring anything anymore. My son is in 8th grade and he is a young man that needs to learn MOM can't do everything for him anymore. In fact the other morning he said to me, Mom you did not get my socks...WHAT? I have spoiled my boys so......

Best,

I love when someone else gives me Christmas decorations. I never think to buy them for myself and if it weren't for friends and family I think I would have a total of five Christmas decorations to pull out every year.

Your tree is pretty and even more special since your kids and husband picked it out just for you. Sweet.

Meg,

Like all the other comments before me, I adore that tree! The hubster did good! Your Christmas decorations (I scrolled back some posts) look wonderful and inspire me to do my own. Thank you for your sweet comment regarding my loss. It was deeply appreciated.

Your friend,
Deborah
