Lisa was with me when I bought the wooden 'house' so I can tell you that bit only cost £2, what a bargain! The toy pig that is in there cost me more than that LOL!
Somebody posted on DC last year about a present one of her crafty friends made which contained
An eraser, so you can make all mistakes disappear,
A penny so you'll never have to say "I'm broke"
A marble in case you feel like you're losing your marbles at times,
A rubber band to stretch yourself beyond normal limits,
A piece of string to tie things together when everything is falling apart,
A button for your lips so you'll always think before you speak,
A knot so when you reach the end of your rope there's still something to hang on to,
A hug and a kiss to remind you that someone, somewhere really cares about you
this came to mind when I was making this, so the house contains all of these (find them if you can!) There is also a picture of each of her family. All shown in a different format - my favourite are the pictures in a bottle. One or two other things which all mean something to Lisa but would take too long to explain here and frankly it wouldn't make terribly interesting reading!
Now all I hope is that her DH doesn't say 'whats this old tat?' and throw it out, he is famous for hiring a skip from time to time and de-cluttering to the highest extreme!!
