Four years ago, my husband and I exchanged handmade gifts for Christmas. We wanted to get away from the burdensome feeling of having to buy ourselves More Stuff....when there was very little that either of us wanted or needed at the time. (I'll post the gift that I made over the coming days.) In the meantime, here is the item that my husband made for me. It's a shaved coconut that opens (like my little box collectibles) and it's handpainted. It's something that only an artist could dream-up. It's an odd item, yet in our living room it appears eclectic...which adds a nice touch. The overbite gets to me every time I look at it.
I love it, and I love the man who made it...just for me.
