… these are a few of my favorite things …

It’s been nearly a month since Christmas and ever since then, I’ve been meaning to share with you my two favorite gifts.

The second favorite thing is this vintage dairy display slab that Marissa and I found and then Dave gave to me to open on Christmas morning.

A few years ago I purchased two reproduction slabs.
