Let you in on a little romantic secret about Mr. JCC

Hope your week is going great.
Happy Thursday.

I think most of you that follow me know when I purchase something from another fellow blogger I like to give them a shout out on my blog.  I think it is great to help each other out and to post about the talents of others.

A fellow blogger and wonderful artist Gigi from Old World Patina Blog has an Etsy Site of the same name.  Gigi makes some really beautiful pieces.

I recently purchased this wonderful piece from her to store all my poems and love letters that Mr. JCC has written to me over the years.

We will be married 33 years this September and  have known each other for over 35 years.  Since I have known this wonderful man and he has been in my life he has written some of the most beautiful stories, love letters and poems to me over the years.

Yep! that "Big Man of Man Fire Chief" has a poetic side to him.  Every card, letter and special occasion he writes some of the most romantic poems and thoughts to me.

I have them saved in a big old box but when I saw that Gigi made this special grey poem box I felt that would be good to put by my night stand and put some of his poems he has written me in there.

Love this box and how she white washed it with a light grey to give it a distressed feel.

Inside the box was a wonderful grouping of special treasures.  Tags, note book and scrolls of french book pages.  Love it all.


It is a perfect addition to my night stand in my bedroom.  I will put some of my favorite poems from Terry inside this treasure box.





Thank you Gigi for my beautiful treasure poem box.  If you would like to see Gigi's other creative and beautiful pieces please visit her Etsy Site Old World Patina.

Have a wonderful rest of the week and please come back on Saturday for Spotlight.
Susan and I have two wonderful bloggers this week.

  1. That box is so beautiful--and it is so sweet that your husband writes you poems! I can't even imagine my husband writing me a poem--kind of makes me giggle to think of it. He is a good guy though, poems or not :) Enjoy your new box!

  2. Love it and how special of your man to do that. I wish I had kept letters from my husband when we were dating, but they are long gone. I also LOVE that sign. I have been watching that for a long time on Etsy...one of these days I will break down and purchase it. :)
    Blessings~

  6. Kris,
    My heart is filled with deeper appreciation for all the beautiful things Terry has done for you out of love for 33 years. Being a poet myself I understand the emotional calling and need to express feelings into words ... I have said time to time you have a wonderful husband, you truly do Kris. For no acts of kindness or expressed words ever go unfelt.
    XO,

      I am truly blessed to have this man in my life. He is so good with tools and lives in my white chippy world with no complaints and then on top of it all writes me beautiful poetry and love letters. He is a keeper for sure.
      Hope you are having a great week back home from vacation. Enjoy the up coming week end.

  28. Kris, I am catching up from the past week and I simply had to stop and comment here. Your Terry is truly a sweetheart - it's even visible in photographs when you look at his eyes. You are so blessed to have these little tokens, and how right to have their own special box. I am loving your living room also. Your new slipcover is gorgeous already, even before the wrinkles fall out. I love that entry wall, especially the gate. It's always fun to see your new changes, and how you keep your home fresh. I always enjoy your posts.
