No, not for me! For my sweet brother and his wife. These two have been through hell for the last few years, and today they move into their own home and get a little heaven! I am so happy for them!! These two are my heroes. I hope I can be like them when I grow up.
Here's a little housewarming gift basket I put together for them: it's based on the house blessing from "It's a Wonderful Life". (you know I *love* that movie!) Do you remember that scene where George and Mary Bailey welcome Mr. Martini and family to their new home?
Mary: Bread... that this house may never know hunger.
[Mary hands a loaf of bread to Mrs. Martini]
Mary: Salt... that life may always have flavor.
[Mary hands a box of salt to Mrs. Martini]
George Bailey: And wine... that joy and prosperity may reign forever. Enter the Martini Castle.
[George hands Mr. Martini a bottle of wine]
Here's what's in the basket:
- ♥ salt, yummy specialty bread, and
wineSparkling Grape Juice (no one in my family drinks alcohol)
- ♥ tags with Mary's house blessing attached to each item
- ♥ a housewarming card
A housewarming gift basket -- simple and inexpensive -- but full of love and happiness for these two wonderful people! I love it when good things happen to good people. Bliss!
