Favorite Gift Given

I've been pretty out of it lately and not feeling too up for being social either on-line or off. I just wanted to share my favorite gift that I was a part of this holiday. My uncle asked me to take pictures on the farm that spelled out LENOX for my Mom. I think it came out really well. It was funny how my niece Jess knew instantly where each of the letters came from. My Dad who has spent practically his entire life on the farm had to stop and think about a few of them.

I'm going to have one made for myself using the alternate fall color letters below. I will also try to spell out GEORGE here in St. Charles and hang them together. I'm planning on shooting all of the letters when I get back to the farm with plenty of time. It was fun but challenging. The L was actually the most tricky to get right for some reason.

That is awesome! I bought one of those made up with letters of our last name and gave it to my son and daughter in-law. I want one for myself! LOL

Not to be nosey but do you have a history of depression? I'm worried about you. Hugs.

I've seen these at craft shows and wanted to try and do something like that but was never able to find the right things to photograph for the letters. I just love that idea and your photos are perfect

I absolutely LOVE that! And would love to do one for my last name to hang in our house but doubt I'd be able to pull it off.

Such a great gift idea!
