Christmas Revisited

I wanted to share one of my Christmas presents with you. My father in law made this for me this year, it was suppose to be a wedding present. He has known I wanted a hope chest for years, so he put an IOU in envelope at our wedding shower. Cute!! He finished it at Christmas time. When they brought it over the other night it was like Christmas all over again. I love and cherish the things he makes for me. =) Sometime I will have to take pictures of my jewelry box he made. (and a few other unique things!)

It is so much prettier in person....

He even personalized it with our names and wedding date!!

It's huge! Right now it is still sitting in the living room until I find the perfect spot for it. =)

My Dad had his uncle make all of the grandgirls cedar hope chests for Christmas last year. I love it. I keep all of Jordan's keepsakes in it! She tries to go thru it every so often, but gets caught.
