I love my upcycled Valentines gifts this year. All made from pallets. I may have given hints a month or so ago when I suggested the blocks might be good for tea light holders, but M came up with the pencil/crochet hook holder by himself. It works a treat too. The third item he made is a rustic box which is destined to carry my phone, iPod, iPad, notebook and reading glasses as this is the paraphernalia that seems to follow me about the house.
M loved his crochet beard collection; grey for every day wear, ginger for weekends and black for work he thought. Obviously just a major bit of silliness, though not as silly as M in a beanie which was my first choice of gift. He just doesn't look good in hats.
