Galvanized Oil Can and the Number 9

My sweet children know me oh so well.

All three of my kids ordered my Christmas gifts off of Etsy this year… without me knowing. 

Cool, huh?

I will show you what my girls  got me soon, but today I want to show you what my son chose for his mama.

This beautiful little oil can came from Urban Farmgirl's etsy shop.  Isn’t it great?

He also found this wonderful number 9, which, of course, is my favorite number.

I wish I knew which shop this metal #9 came from so I could tell you.  If/When I find out, I will let you know so you can visit her shop.  (edited...found at Creative Artifacts)

See the little word “joy” in the background.  Yes, that’s what all of my children bring me.

Didn’t my son do just great with my gift?

***Before I tell you the parties that I am linking up to tonight, I want to give a congratulations to someone.

CONGRATULATIONS to my “sister” Becky from the beautiful and inspirational blog,  Buckets of Burlap.   Her home was featured in  not one, but two, beautiful  magazines this week.    This lady has an eye and a heart for beauty and her home is farmhouse fabulous, to say the least.

I am most positive that all of you already follow Becky, but if you don’t, you have to go to her blog and see what she has been up to in her dining area  and what her plans are for January.  I, for one, can’t wait to learn from her this month. 

Not only will you love her style, you will fall in love with her and her family just like I have.  Oh, and her husband, Mr. Buckets, is one outstanding carpenter.

Okay…now I am heading over to LaurieAnna's for her Farmhouse Friday party.

Also linking up over at Donna's at Funky Junk Interiors

I am having the biggest "duh" moment. You have mentioned Becky so many times yet I keep on forgetting to simply click a link and visit a blog.

Now, that's just blonde, isn't it?

I love what your very observant son gave you. He knows his mom very well. That says something very good!

I had to go back and find the JOY. That's been happening a lot recently, but I'm determined to find it.
