An Unexpected Gift...

I love unexpected gifts...
This week, my # 2 daughter presented me with a beautifully packaged gift.  
A 4in. x 4in. x 3in. dark teal lacquered wood box, tied up in shiny black ribbon.
No special reason, simply a generous spirit.
(How can you not feel special. ;)

A fancy pair of socks !  I love socks...all kinds of socks.
Cozy, warm and colorful.
I am grateful !
But, there is more.....

The inside of this box is an amazing colorful Paisley.
And even the inside of the lid is lined.

I have plans for this little wooden lacquered box.
I would love to do some punch needle or rug hook a little mat for on top of the lid !
Hmmmm...the ideas are churning. ;)

(Someone should have told my daughter that she never had to buy the socks !  The box was a gift enough.)


  1. Lol. This reminds me of a kid at Christmas who plays with the box instead of the toy inside. It is beautiful. What a nice surprise.

  2. How I love socks and boxes! Wonderful gift! You'll have fun with a special design for the top!
    I am glad for your sweet comments on my blog lately! I am so glad I found your blog too! Hope you're staying safe from the big storms out there!
    Warm wishes and Hugs from WI!

  3. I agree with you - the box itself would have been gift enough - what a sweet sweet daughter!


So glad to have you here visiting...
would love to hear your thoughts !
