I guess she thought that wasn't a great enough present (even though it totally was), so she perused my pinterest pins to try to find other ideas. I had pinned something similar to this trough I found at Terrain a couple of years ago.
So, imagine my excitement when I realized that she'd gotten her husband to make me one! And, the best part? He made it out of disassembled pallets!
I finally got around to filling it today, with Emma's help! I realize it's still a little Christmas-y, but I figure I can change it out for each season. I'm actually kind of thinking of how I could add a little moss and other spring-y items in a couple of months.
So......here it is! I honestly just love it. Thanks so much Nicole, for the idea, and Jeremy for the hard work!
