Thanks, Muddy, for making the adorable button!
Okay, this is complicated, but I think you can handle it...Russ' former wife's sister's husband, Denny made this clock for me a couple of years ago. So, that makes Denny and his wife, Debbie, Russ' former brother and sister in law. To further complicate things. We are best friends with them and Denny was Russ' best man when we got married.
On to the clock....It all started as a joke. Denny does lovely work crafting furniture as a hobby and I teasingly told him if he needed something to do, I'd love a glass cabinet. He teased me right back and said he would make me one if I bought him a new muzzle loader. The game began...We teased each other for months. I'd say, "How's my cabinet doing?" He's respond, "Did you get my gun yet?" So, on a whim, Russ and I bought the gun Denny wanted and gave it to him. That was a blast!! Seeing the surprise and shock on his face was gift enough for me, so I never mentioned the cabinet again. A few years later, I came home from puppy class and found this beautiful clock in my living room! It was my turn to be surprised. I LOVE it!!! I keep all my special pretties in it. You can see the bird from my first Things In My House Thursday post on the top shelf.
If I asked Denny, I have a feeling he would agree with me and say the best part of our game was the giving, not the getting.
