For sale...CHEAP TOO!

All of you might be thinking how wonderful mister man is right about now after he made me these wonderful pedestals from a picture. How handy he is after he built the lower walls on our barn and he is handy and wonderful……most of the time.

He’s very romantic, he was gone once on Valentine’s Day and sent me a dozen roses all in the form of a card, that ribbon pack. Yep, he sent me a single rose through the mail and I actually received one a day for twelve days with the last arriving on Valentine’s, it was all very romantic. See all those little white hearts in various sizes, those were hidden around our home leading me from one clue to the next until I found my gift, it was a ton of fun!

Our Anniversary is no different, mister man made me this card for our seventh anniversary and those pennies have the year date for each year we were married. (Don’t worry honey the bottom penny came unglued but it’s in my keepsake box.) The romance comes out all the time not just special occasions.

But there’s a dark side to him you may not want to hear about, something no woman should have to be subjected to….AIRPORT HEIRLOOMS! You might be wondering what these heirlooms might be well I’ll tell you, they’re little trinkets mister man picks up at airports all across the country when he has been traveling because he’s to dang lazy to go out and find something decent! And lucky me he has termed these lovelies airport heirlooms!

I can’t begin to tell you what a great actress I was keeping a straight face the year I received a cordless drill on Valentine’s Day but at least it was wrapped up in pretty PINK flower wrapping paper even though he knows I hate PINK! Coincidence, I think not!

My personal favorites would have to be this lovely sewing kit and thimble, keep in mind I’m a professional seamstress and sew for a living…..special huh?

So you still think mister man’s so wonderful? You may have him but there’s a catch he comes as is and THERE ARE NO RETURNS!

Never mind the pedestals! Any man who can single handedly dig out the ground floor of a building and reconstruct it with one arm while holding the edifice up with the other has my u-n-d-y-i-n-g respect and admiration!

Sounds like this is not someone you would want to "return" anyway...hes a keeper to go through all of that thought in those sweet and sentimental gifts he buys! I love that...what a romantic. Maybe store all of these "airport heirlooms" in a special place, a trunk, chest, day they will certainly not only tell a story but will hold a very special place in your heart knowing that they were given by someone who obviously loves you so much. I guess he figures this way you can't return these "heirlooms" either:)

I think he's definitely a keeper. He's sweet, romantic and handy to have around! My ex used to bring me magnets from every airport... Ugh, those cutesy little magnets. Hmmm, I wonder what ever happened to those things!!!

LaPouyette said...

I'll take him! You can have mine!
They seem to be very similar!

All our men come with a dark side, especially in the gifting department. I did a piece about it also last fall when my well meaning husband bought me an absolutely hideous (albeit comfortable) Costco chair for my office. Then there was the time I got copper pots. But he cleans, vacuums, cooks and has been known to have excellent taste in antique jewelry!!

do you trade? :-)

Debra- At least the treasures seem fairly small... What a keeper!


Mona Thompson said...

I don't think I'd be giving up Mister Man anytime soon. He's definitely a keeper. Hope everything is great with you! Mona

French Kissed said...

You know what they's the thought that counts and he is obviously always thinking of is most probably that his thoughts and opportunity to shop do not converge until he is waiting at the airport. I think you should keep him all for yourself!


Maison de lin said...

Stacey said...
