A handmade gift for my birthday


My birthday is on Boxing Day so it is at that busy time of the year but I never get forgotten.  One of the gifts I received this birthday was this lovely handmade one.

I had seen the glass vases in Ikea when I was there with my daughter and I had said that I thought they were a great idea for flower arrangements.  My daughter must have bought the vases at the time, I didn’t really take much notice.  Anyway I received this present for my birthday, along with many other lovely gifts.

My eldest granddaughter had made the bases by hand, shaping and planing the wood and then drilling out the holes for the glass tubes.  I was thrilled with the result.

She even signed her work on the bottom of the bases.  Thank you Emma.

      We have a few Japanese maples in our garden. They all were from seeds from trees in Canberra.
