In my world, Christmas isn't quite what it used to be. It has become so commercial that I rebel at times. I still make my own cards (see previous post) and many of my gifts (lots of homemade vanilla!). Then along come this wonderful gift, handmade by my mom! She took a small aluminum garbage can and tole painted it. She uses hers for birdseed -- I might do the same! Check out the picture of the painted scoop! Yes, she painted that too! Thanks Mom for making Christmas what it should be -- handmade!
