The Gift ~Life Begins~

  Gifts come in numerous shapes and sizes,
some are large and others are small,
some gifts have no size at all.

However, it is not the size of the gift that matters
but rather the size of the heart that gives it.
                                            Quote "Gift of the Magi"

My special prim friend Tonya
over at My Primitive Creations 
 sent me a very precious gift.
Tonya's Note

Tonya's heart is so large I don't think
 I could even begin to wrap my arms around it.
Tonya lives life with passion, hard work and lots of laughs.
Even though she has had a rough year in 2012 with,
numerous surgery's, car problems, losing her dear "cat"

Tonya takes the time to think about others.
 while thrifting one day
she found a special gift just for me.
~~Love you girlfriend ~~

The Gift ~Life Begins~
 Vintage Baby Book dated 1938

Tonya remembered my post about Ina Petersen's baby book
dated 1918 I found in a Colorado flea market
When she saw this sweet baby book, she thought of me.
I feel so honored.

An empty book, no entry's were made, how sad.
 Sounds like the makings of another story here!

My precious gift is on display in the

vintage white cabinet located in
Jesse's Room at Woodmist Cabin
