In the past two weeks, for no reason at all, my children have 'gifted' me. Not only have they 'gifted me', but because of the gifts they gave me, I know that they were thinking of me. In other words it was not about to be a birthday or gift-giving holiday. They just randomly saw these things, and thought of me. Is there anything better than that?
First, my son Luke was helping someone clean a garage. He saw TWO of these galvanized water-buckets that were getting tossed aside. He knew I would love them. One of them even came with a lid!
And it was Luke's idea to put the flags in the bucket/cooler. I was going to plant flowers in it and he told me I was 'boring'. He said he imagined it with a bunch of American flags. So I did. And I love it. And I love Luke for seeing a dirty old galvanized bucket and thinking of me!!
Then, my daughters were together at an Estate Sale. They sent me a picture on my phone of these plates and asked me if I liked them. I text back that I love cobalt blue. They bought all 8 of them. They said when they were paying that the Estate Sale lady said she couldn't wait for someone to buy them because she thought they were such a great color. I plan on using them...and putting them in a Tablescape. Or two. Or three.
I love the plates....And I love my daughter's for seeing these bright blue plates, knowing how much I love blue, and thinking of their mama!
Then to complete a great week, my son Coulter came home with this little gem. He said he saw it with the # 5 on it and knew I would like it. (I collect 5's because of the number of children I have). Plus he knew I would like the color he said.
He could not have been more on target....Speaking of which, is where he got it...At Target.
The lamp is the color of sea glass. I ooohed and aaaawed and loved it immediately. And I love Coulter for seeing the number 5 and thinking of his mom who loves all things 5!
Don't kids do the darndest...and sweetest things? When you least expect it?
