a sort of Christmas story

Friday, March 30, 2012

We're at the dinner table. Mama's little piggy has mashed potaotes smeared on his face, when.............there's a knock at the door. 


It's here, the fed ex truck has arrived in front of the house. 

I stand at the door and nervously tap my foot. It's my major award. It's here and I think it's marked 
fra-gi-lay. I grab the scissors and open the box with the highest degree of anticipation. I am not disappointed.

Sonya of Kanelstrand blog had this wonderful giveaway from barnwood4u on Etsy, and I won!

I love the rustic barn wood look of these pieces and there are so many ways to arrange them.

and I can fill them with things like this

or even this

I am going to have so much fun playing around with these. They will make great photo props or storage for my sewing supplies.

The thing that I was most excited about was this rustic barn wood frame, with mat and glass.

It is absolutely perfect for this sweet little photo of my grandchildren.

So thank you Sonya from Kanelstrand and Jim and Brenda from barnwood4u. Check out both of these. You'll be glad you did. I know they made my week very special.
