The best gifts....

What is that saying?  "The best gifts come from the heart."  "The best gifts are homemade."  Well, I'm not sure about the saying, but there is no doubt about this:

My name was on the tag.

This is what I found when I unwrapped it!  Country Man has been busy once again with his wood-working!  This is made from pine with a cedar handle.  I believe all the magazines that come to this address will fit into this!:-)  I think it is destined to become a family heirloom!

Happy week-end!


  1. Nellie, I love that. My daughter calls everything Ted makes for Christmas a family heirloom. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. How lovely! He is quite a talented artisan, and you are blessed to receive such a gift! Enjoy your day today, Sister!

  3. Hand and heart-crafted gifts are the best! You are fortunate to have someone that uses both, to create wonderful heirlooms that can be passed down.

  4. Indeed, Nellie! Those are the best gifts!

  5. Ooh Nellie it's a grand piece !
    How very lucky you are, an heirloom indeed.

  6. What a lovely gift. A homemade gift is the best. Reminds me of a doughboy bowl. Happy New year.

  7. What a special gift! One to treasure. : )

  8. That is beautiful! A treasure for sure! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  9. That is something to hand down to your children some day in the far off future. Or me. You can put me in the will. I'll inherit.


  10. I hope your husband has signed and dated this piece of carved wood for posterity.
    It will make a lovely heirloom but in the meantime a nice home for your magazines.


  11. Very unique, Nellie, and truly a gift from the hand as well as the heart! Susan

  12. I somehow missed this post until now. It is, indeed, the best kind of gift. It's beautiful, Nellie.

  13. Sorry, I missed this post...your gift is beautiful! Country Man is very gifted!! It is a heirloom for sure!!


  14. Banned complain !! Complaining only causes life and mind become more severe. Enjoy the rhythm of the problems faced. No matter ga life, not a problem not learn, so enjoy it :)
