Baby Shower Gift

I never know what a new mom will want, so I usually buy a gift card, but I want them to have something to open, so I buy a little something and wrap it up.  I have a problem:)

I had asked my cousin if she was using a theme in the nursery and she said Winnie the Pooh.  Well, I didn’t want to go crazy with that because lord knows every little thing that could ever be made into Winnie the Pooh has been made.  But I did happen upon one of these little beauties at Goodwill: 

It is a polished pewter bank with gold bees and honey on it.  I loved it!  And I loved that it wasn’t branded Pooh, but would be a cute nod to the theme.  I did some research online using the stamp on the bottom of the piece: Salisbury Pewter.  What I found blew me away.  It is hand-crafted in Maryland.  It is made of hand-buffed pewter and the bees and honey around the coin slot are gold plated.  And it retails for over ten times more than what I paid for it!

I made a little notecard with all the details and cleaning recommendations since it was obviously missing the original packaging.  I hope she and the new little one enjoy it!

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
