Who doesn’t love to receive gifts with a lot of meaning? As I was changing my daughter’s diaper this morning, one of the meaningful gift’s I’ve received was peeking out at me & I decided to share the idea in case someone else wanted to use it.
When I was pregnant with me daughter, my aunt gave me these as a shower gift:
(Try to ignore the fact that the walls photograph as mustard, in real life they are much lighter.)
These are pictures that I had drawn as a child and she saved them 20+ years! She framed them with picture frames that she no doubt got from one of her famous yard sale outings or maybe already had and gave them to me to hang in the nursery.
Is it a little strange that there is a picture of Abraham Lincoln hanging in my daughter’s room? Maybe, but less strange if you know that I chose Abby’s name after Abigail Adams, my favorite first lady. Then it’s actually pretty cool, huh?
Anyway, I just thought it was a pretty cool gift idea to give framed children’s art as a gift to an expecting mom. 🙂
