I am like a grandmother – I don’t 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!
