I went to a flea market with my folks many, many years ago and stumbled upon a beautiful little vase that far surpassed my budget.
Little did I know, my parents returned later to purchase that very same vase.
They wrapped it up and some time later (birthday or Christmas, I can’t remember which) gave it to me as a gift. I was touched more by their thoughtfulness than even the gift itself.
I love decorating our home with meaningful objects and images. Especially things that warm my soul.
