He Came Bearing Gifts

My husband loves to travel and he loves to shop. So on a recent business trip, he was able to do both. He made his first trip to Vietnam and came home with gifts galore.

Magnet sets

Wooden figurines

A painting on material and more figurines

Loose tea and a pretty dish with lid

Bamboo placemats

All of this and more. He also bought a new camera just for the trip. I need to find the accessories so I can upload the pictures.

Have been cleaning most of the day. Sometimes you just gotta do it! Hope you are having a wonderful day wherever you are in the world. Friendship blessings, Tammy

What a great shoper your DH is! Love all the figurines but my favoriet is the placemats. They will make a great tablescape.
I too need to clean today (especially my studio).

Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi Tammy...You are so lucky your husband likes to shop. That's the opposite of mine. I loved seeing all your treasures! He did a great job.The magnets are great, the painting is super, and the dish with the lid is very, very attractive. Good for Sam! Good for you! Have a super Saturday. Susan

I love that your husband is a shopper! Bill is too. :) I think he can out shop me in stores. I'm usually the one whining my legs are pooped out and I can usually out shop most in a store. ;) I love all the gifts he brought home. Not only a shopper but a thoughtful one too. A keeper for sure. ;)

Have a wonderful 'warm' weekend. :)

Wonderful gifts from afar.
I can understand why you don't want your pipes to freeze, I don't either. But you know kids, that would be pretty exciting to them. I don't think you have to worry about it there - here, maybe.

Lynn said...

Wow, your husband is lucky to be able to travel so much with his job since that is what he loves to do :) Nice he can bring presents home too.
Thank you for dropping by, sorry it's been so long for me.

Stop cleaning and have a cup of tea, Tammy! You deserve it after your busy week!

Hi, Tammy,
Your husband brought home some wonderful gifts from Viet Nam. That must be a really interesting country to visit. Speaking of cleaning, I noticed dust an inch thick on a shelf in my bedroom. I hate to dust!! Wish I could just wiggle my nose and it be done. Those two romantic images on your header are two of my very favorites of yours. Enjoy your day, dear friend. Sending love and hugs to you~ Vicki

Hi Tammy, Catching up here is like going on a travel excursion with lots of wonderful new food fare to try. I'm giggling at trying as hard as I could to imagine just what it was you were making your children eat along with their cute toast. A bowl of very interesting desert fruit? Hah! Trix? I am so clueless! I so enjoy seeing the beautiful skies in your part of the world. A trip to Vietnam! What wonderful treasures brought home! He did so good! Such fun to visit here! Elizabeth

Sherry said...

What fun gifts. Your husband must enjoy shopping if he has the patience to select so many great gifts. Blessings to you from Washington State.

Elaine said...

How nice of Sam to bring you such nice gifts.. Lots of guys go and don't even think that it would be a nice surprise for their family to get a small gift.

still cold and snowing here.

Sussie said...

So many beautiful things! :)
I need to do excactly the same thing as you did yesterday. Clean the house. I´m not in a mood for it but just as you said "sometimes you just gotta do it"!
Have a wonderful sunday!

I think it is so cool that Sam enjoys finding special little things to remember the cool places he goes. He knows your taste very well. I am impressed. The next time we get together, he really needs to give Omar a few lessons... HA! Sam has great taste, and I am thrilled that you were the benefactor of his shopping efforts. Really nice!!!
Enjoy the new camera!!

Love ya,
Renee
