Way back when I first got married, I made a tradition that every Christmas I would buy one thing, not expensive, marked down if possible, displaying my name. I have collected a rather large box by now. On top of that, I have many family & friends that can't resist getting me things with my name.
Most of the items you see in this post were given to me by friends & especially Mr. G. Some of these things stay out all year. Warning: I haven't opened my JOY box yet. I hope to clear off the white shelves and display the collection this year.
Thanks Mother & Daddy for giving me a name I have enjoyed. So here are some of the "JOY" things around the house now.
I made these 2 yrs. ago.
