One Of My Most Favorite Birthday Gifts Ever

Was given to me this year from Blake.

He hand-made this shadow box.....inspired by many we've seen over the years in Anthropologie's "Special Finds" category.

The backdrop is a file folder. Stick from the yard. Wood frame and mounting found behind our patio - believe it fell off our neighbor's fence. Wax birdy from Anthropologie, already in our house.

Total cost: $0
Total meaning: countless

So, I've been inspired to do something fabulous with our temporary decor on our fireplace mantle. Stay tuned!

Oh I love it!!!!! Looks so good and that is crazy thoughtful.

I am so impressed with Blake right now.

SASS said...

I'm impressed, too! What a meaningful gift.

You guys are too precious. What you have is rare. I think you know that, though :)

Sara said...

Wow...very impressed by Blake! He may need to call Trey and give him some tips.
Very cool.

My husband would never make a gift, so your husband is the best! I laugh every time I read the book you are currently reading. Have you seen the movie of it? My husband and I laugh every year when it is on.

That is awesome! You would never think it was hand made when you look at it! LOVE it! Props to your hubby!

The Jones Family said...

Ok, you're right; I'm asking myself right now, in my head of course, what's the deal with my brother!

Great job, Blakers! Proud of you and love.you.no.matter.what! :)

Shannon said...
