RETURNING HOME GIFTS
My husband and younger daughter returned from Texas, visiting family and our older daughter, while I stayed here taking care of business. Now ya'll, I confess, I am a practical gal. I love thrift stores, garage sales, junking. Don't get me wrong, I love beautiful clothes, but learned that I destroy clothes because I don't change them to garden, do art, cook, play with the kids. And jewelry, oh my! I've destroyed so many beautiful pieces of jewelry because I didn't remove it. For our tenth anniversary, my husband asked if I wanted a diamond anniversary band. No, I wanted and received a tractor! (He did sneak a diamond ring in at Christmas time a few years ago...tears oh tears.) That boy knows what I like. The girls picked out some beautiful rings at an antique store and this is what Bill bought for me. Old books, new inherited relatives, lace/linen, old family pictures, letters, articles. I won the lottery!
