Do you still believe in Christmas miracles? I do. Now, these two miracles were very small miracles compared to some, but they meant a lot to me this Christmas!
One Friday at the beginning of December I decided I wanted an old wooden box. A lot of the fruits and veggies here still come in wooden boxes. So, I planned that the next day I would go in search of my old wooden box. But, I woke up sick that day and couldn't leave the house. =(
So, I relayed my WANT to my Sweetheart who was going to the market to get us some fresh eggs. I hated for him to have to go searching for me an old wooden box, but thought it wouldn't hurt to tell him anyways. =) Wouldn't you know, that about a block from our house, Phillip found me an old wooden box. Some of the boxes that the fruit and veggies come in are cheaply made, all kinds of shapes and look NEW, but this looked old, and it was the perfect size that I had wanted. =)
Back at the time of my birthday when I so wanted a chalkboard, we had looked about buying a real piece of Slate/tile. But we found that they only sell them by the case of 15-20 or so, and they were quite PRICEY!
While Phillip was out that evening, he found me a fun piece of broken off slate to use in my old wooden box decoration. =) ~
I was happy with how it turned out...and it adds a rustic Christmasy touch to Phillip's side of the bed.
My night stand decor coming tomorrow. (Although without knowing it, you've already had a "sneak peek." =)~
PLEASE help me pray that my 2 Christmas magazines will come in BEFORE Christmas!!! (Taste of Home and Better Homes and Gardens!) THANK YOU!
