christmas past and present # 4

This is my all-time favorite Christmas gift.
During our early-married days
money was tight, really tight.

We were doing "coupons" for gifts

My dear husband made me 6 of these candlesticks


out of a scrap 2X4!


It goes to show you can always come up with something

to show how much you love.


I will treasure them always.

Rene...how awesome! I love gifts from the heart especially when they are tuned in to what we really love. I am trying to look at your blog , but it is coming up veryyyy slow for me as I am still on dial up. Grr...one of these days I will get with the rest of the world and be on high speed (I HOPE)...living out in the boonies does have it's drawbacks once in a while. MERRY CHRISTMAS!
