More sweet gifts
A few days ago I posted about the sweet strawberry mug set from my mother-in-law. I didn't mention that this was actually a birthday gift, but it was. And now I must share just a few more, these from my daughter Carrie. Carrie is one of the world's most thoughtful gift-givers, as is her sister Joanna.
She gave me these lovely reversible place mats from the Pioneer Woman line, a set of six.
Aren't they pretty? I can see myself using the yellow side most, but both sides will look nice in our dining room.
There was also an Amazon gift card to buy myself a book or whatever I might like.
And then! Well, I've already given it away at the top of the post, but as I unwrapped the box, I guessed that it might contain an electric wax warmer. I never guessed how special it would be, however.
Back at Christmas, Carrie had given me two of these gorgeous plates which she actually had found at Walmart. (I never saw them, but then I barely, if at all, went into the Christmas department there prior to Christmas.)
She had also given me several more fun gifts in the tree-on-a-vehicle theme. You can see them all and read about them here: Oh, what fun.
Anyway, now I'm opening a birthday present, guessing it may be a wax warmer, and oh joy, it matches those adorable plates!
Isn't it so much fun? Know how wax warmers have holes in them where the light shines through? On this one, the light shines through the station wagon's headlights. Can't wait to use it next year!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
