I got some awesome gifts for Christmas this year. I was just stunned that my family #1, spent so much time on my gifts and #2, are that talented. I am one lucky girl.
First of all, my mom and dad gave me a bed frame that my dad welded for me. Yeah, that’s right. I couldn’t believe how cool it was. It just blows my mind every time I look at it. It’s perfect. If I had to design a bed frame myself, it would look like this. He got it so right. He used a sheet of steel diamond plate to build most of it. Here are some pictures of the work in progress.
He even got the colors so right. They are so me. He actually used the colors I’ve used to design this blog. It’s just perfect and it turns out, it goes with everything I have. Like my quilt, (which my sister made me), my lamp, my accessories, and of course, Abe. Yes, it weighs 10,000 lbs, but it’s not going anywhere for awhile. Here are some shots of us assembling the frame.
See how well it goes with my stuff?
It even has a built-in shelf to store stuff on.
It’s just one of the coolest gifts I’ve ever got. Ever.
And then I opened my next gift. Yeah, it’s a handmade knitted sweater from my sister. I don’t even want to know how much time she spent on it. It’s so awesome. It’s so warm, I love it. I live in a drafty old apartment and this wool sweater is going to come in handy this winter. I can barely figure out this knitting thing.. some day, I know I will.. but this just blows my mind that she can make this stuff.
So I made out pretty well this Christmas. I’m very grateful.
I gave some handmade gifts myself for people this year, that post to follow soon.
