I was completely taken aback by the gifts the girls and Fatty made for me. I really thought I would get some paint-your-own pottery. The girls love to do that and it would be easy enough for all three of them to accomplish when they went on their secret mission. I was wrong. So wrong.
Instead, Fatty took the girls to blow glass! Blow glass, people. I have never blown glass and I had no idea that six and eight year olds would be able to blow glass. Well, they did. And I was flabbergasted when I opened the package. Inside were three gorgeous ornaments, each unique and lovely. If the packages hadn't said who they were from, I think I could have guessed. All three glass blowers thought of my tastes, but they each put a great deal of their own personality into their creations.
White, blue and green from Jane
White, pink, purple and red from Kate
Green, red and yellow from Fatty
They outdid themselves, didn't they? I am in awe of this gift. I think these are too pretty to sit in a box all year long, waiting for December to be hung. I am going to hang them in front of a window next to our kitchen where I can admire them all year long.
Lucky, lucky me.
