Top 10 Monday

My top 10 favorite presents I've received...
(Topic suggested by my husband)

This one was a fun but hard list to make because I've gotten so many wonderful presents over the years.

10. His and her bikes from my mom and Dick. They gave them to us for Christmas a couple of years ago.




9. Heart necklace from John. I wear it all the time. It's so pretty.

8. Books from my brother and Adriana. They took the time to find some interesting books from female authors for me. A few years ago for my birthday he and my sister in law gave me Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf and a book of short stories by Eudora Welty.

7. The afghan blanket my grandmother (Mama T.) made for me when I graduated from high school.

6. The lamp John gave me for my 31st birthday. I call it my Hobbit lamp.

5. The gum ball machine my grandparents gave me. It's just like the one they had in their house. I loved that thing. I ate many gumballs from that machine.




4. The scrapbook my sister made me after she, my mom and I went to Mississippi and Louisiana in the summer of 2003.

3. The cabinet my mom and John gave me a few years ago for Christmas. It used to be bright orange with different hardware and no top shelf. Mom started the project and John finished it. I love it.




2. My engagement ring. The diamond belonged to John's grandmother.

1. Kita. John gave her to me for Christmas in 1998.
