A LOVELY GIFT

I have so much catching up to do!!!! Here goes one.



Way back on July 26th I was blessed to be the winner of a $40 Gift Certificate that Becky, of The Keys to the Cottage, had on a drawing on her previous blog.



It took me quite a while to select an item I wanted. There were so many items to choose from.



There is a young couple from our church getting married next month and I wanted to get a nice gift for them so I decided to get this:




A thermometer that reads the room temperature with different colored floating balls with the temperature on an attached tag. My daughter, Suzette, has one of these in her home and I have always admired it.

For weddings I like to give something along the "pretty" line, rather than something "practical" (like towels or sheets) so it is something they can have for years and remember receiving it from us. I have things like that in my home from 50+ years ago and I treasure them.



Thank you Becky for drawing my name. Thank you CSN Stores for offering the free Gift Certificate. Thank you God for yet another of your many blessings.



Best wishes Dream & James



I'm attending her bridal shower next Sunday :o)

We have one of those and enjoy it very much. I'm sure the bride and groom will treasure theirs too.

I have seen those and I always thought it would be neat to have.
I am sure the bride and groom will cherish it for a long time.
Have a great day.

That is so cool. I've seen them but didn't realize they were thermometers. How fun!

Such a treat to win something from CSN. I love my lamp that I got from Leigh Ann's drawing.

I'm sure the gift will be loved and how nice that you shared your blessing.

Is the bride's name really Dream? How lovely!

And that is a beautiful gift. I agree with your gift giving philosophy. I like to give and get gifts that will remind the recipient of the giver. Well chosen!
