Our Homemade Gifts....

 These are  the gifts that Ted made this year.  He really enjoys coming up with different combinations of wood.
This is the lazy susan that all the families received from Ted's workshop. You can put a jar candle in the center, sugar packets in the boxes, or toothpicks in one, salt and pepper shakers go in the round spots . These were all made of walnut wood harvested from this area. The trinket dishes were gifts to all the girls, to put their rings in when doing dishes or cleaning. Everyone enjoyed their handmade gifts. :):)

  1. What lovely and priceless gifts. Hubby worked with a man who made items like these. John would often go along on the search for wood with him. I know these gifts are very treasured! Have a nice weekend.
