My favorite Christmas gift was a tie between my custom made paddle board:
(I am so crazy excited about this!!)
And a GORGEOUS swing crafted by my favorite baby-brother, T-bone (aka Stephen).
(Awe, look at that punim.)
I picked this photo because it shows T-bone, with his nephews, on his wedding day, next to one of his original signs. (This is a sign he made for his wedding to help people find their way . . . we live in the boonies.)
I actually stole one of his wedding signs:
Yup, I stole a bathroom sign from my brother’s wedding, cause I’m classy like that.
ANYHOW! For our Christmas present our littlest brother, with help from his gorgeous and design-savy wife, made everyone in the family the most beautiful, perfect swings.
I absolutely LOVE it. I love the font, I love the sentiment, I love it all.
I just wish I had somewhere to put it.
For now it is sitting front and center on my fireplace mantle. Someday soon I hope to build a pergola in our backyard and then this piece of gorgeous fun will find a new home there.
While taking these photos this morning I started walking around the house taking pictures of every creation I have received from my brother. Like this box:
Look at that dove-tailing!! So Gorgeous!!
I keep our remotes in this box. It should probably hold something much fancier, but it makes me feel kinda high-brow.
This Christmas I commissioned T-bone to craft this hanger for my husbands new/very old guitar.
This guitar belonged to my husband’s very beloved Papaw so Adam truly cherishes it. Did you notice the rubber-bands? Adam is not taking any chances with this beauty.
And then there’s this beautiful chest:
I asked for a toy-box and this is what he made.
I mean, wow!
How spoiled am I?
I ask for things and T-bone just cranks em out.
So, SO lucky.
See that frame, yup. . . he made that too.
I have a handful of new project ideas for him too. And I need to get as much in as I can, cause in a few short months he is going to be a brand new father.
And Lord knows our productivity tends to dissipate once we have our babies.
Thank you for making my home so BEAUTIFUL T-bone!! I love you!!
Now make me something like this.
