This Christmas my hubby and I gave
each other a gift at the end of our
Hubby gave me a heavy box,
medium sized... what on earth could
Hubby said "You were with me when I
bought it for you, you picked it out!"
Oh dear, really?
So I ripped off the paper, tore the
box open to find... SURPRISE...
a set of Amish Pyrex Mixing Bowls
in aqua that we
found at our New Uses store in
Columbus and snatched up quickly.
They were only $15 and had just been
put out on the shelf. The antique mall
was selling the same set for $60.
I LOVE them!
Next my hubby inspected his present.
It was obviously a picture but of what?
I didn't even remember.
It was wrapped so well with vanilla paper
that I just put my Christmas paper over
top and called it "done"!
He tore off all the paper and to our
surprise it was a Maxfield Parrish print
that we found at the Heritage Antique Mall
for a steal of a price this past summer,
purchased it, then tucked it away.
The Frog Prince by Maxfield Parrish
Our son and his darling wife were in
stitches over what they had just witnessed!
Hubby and I can now buy gifts for each other
ahead of time and FORGET what it was
we bought. That's the only advantage to
the aging process I've come acrossed
