Last year, I let my husband off the hook and shopped for myself. I enjoyed it and got myself some incredibly lovely pretty things.
But that seemed to be far too easy on my husband. So this year I asked him for a few homemade things that I have been wanting, longing, pining for a long time. He says I never asked for them before but I disagree with that.
There's one strange thing that's been missing on our house since we bought it almost 23 years ago and I've often complained about it... (If I get it, I'll write about it.)
Those of you who know my handy husband know that his homemade stuff is quite awesome. It has involved lots of wood, sawdust (tracked all over the black rug), bent metal, help from tall male children (that's the only kind I have), and that all seems to be a good thing.
One thing has been built already and stashed away I-do-not-know-where so at least I will have a surprise somehow!!
