Presents from my sisters...

I have 4 older sisters and each year we buy/make a small gift. This year the theme was 'Round and Shiny and $15 maximum. Above are the bangles I bought for them - nice and round and shiny!

My sister Leanne chose this cute card about sisters, with a shiny and round medallion...
~
a cute verse...

and a picture of us all. She also made a keyring with our initials and pretty glass beads. Special mention has to be made of the Christmas pudding she made. ... at the end of the day, she couldn't give it away! It was a good pud but her trifle was even more awesome. Thanks Fred!
~Sue gave me this little candy bowl filled with yummy truffles and liqueurs and round, shiny gold chocolate coins...
~
This is a glass water bottle that my sister Janine hand etched and it has a glass bead decoration so I guess the bottle is round and shiny....
~
and delicate glass Christmas decoration to go on the tree from my sister Marilyn. So we all completed this years challenge.

This is the criterior for next years Sisters presents. It was Leanne's turn to choose and it's is quite ironic that she works at a garden nursery, don't you think??

This is a fun way to do presents for family members and keeping the cost down is part of the fun. It also gives you a whole year to think about the gift.

Also, this is my 300th blog post since August 2008. I recently had a lady comment on my site, saying she loved my blog and how I promote my town etc. She saw me in the local supermarket last week and made herself known to me. She visits Pip's Restisnotidleness and checked out my blog and discovered we lived in the same town. Small world eh?
