Special handmade gifts ...

A few years ago, my brother decided to make me a few handmade items for the house. He worked at Rickle's Hardware Store at the time and surprised me with some special wooden cat items ...

He stencilled the names of my beloved cats, Sabrina and Maggie, who passed away about 5 years ago. This one I particularly cherish!

A small bench which I keep in the cat's room

A beautiful table with roses stencilled on it which we keep in the living room

As you can see, all of these things are indeed very, very special to me and they are irreplaceable!


  1. Handmade gifts are priceless. And these are so great. Lucky you!!

    1. I know exactly what you mean, Robin. These kinds of "gifts" we can never buy in a store or replace in any way.
