La Mesa-A Gift From a Friend

Hey my friends!!!

I hope you will indulge me as I show you quite a few photos today of a beautiful gift I received from our friends from Louisiana.

Becky’s husband, Mr. Buckets as we lovingly refer to him, is a fabulously talented carpenter and craftsman.  This man can build anything and everything that he sets his mind to.  I was fortunate enough for him to set his mind on building something for me.  I mean like really really fortunate because what he built me is incredible. 

Hang with me for a few minutes and see what I am talking about.

Can you tell what my gift was?

Yes, this beautiful piece of furniture is in my living room and, quite frankly, I am in love.

table 29

What did I tell you??  Beautiful, isn’t it?

  Mr. Buckets did a fabulous job!  Actually, I think Mr. Buckets rocks!  He doesn’t know it, but I’m kind of claiming him as a brother now.  (not just because he built me a table but because he’s a super guy)

Thanks for sticking around a few extra minutes.

Blessings, friends.
