Christmas of Dreams - Day 9

Wow, we are already into DAY 9!
Here's our wonderful sponsors of the day:
jaC Jewelry, Cutie Covers and Sassy Baby

What is the most unusual gift you’ve received? It doesn’t have to be bad, just unusual.
What was one of your favorite gifts? Do you think re-gifting is OK?

I have a couple I think were kinda unusual.
1- Chia pet from my grandmother.
2- Box of candy from a student.
Here's the story behind that one: After college I accepted a teaching position
in Bowman, SC. If know anything about Bowman, well I'd be surprised! Anyway, it use
to be quite rural...and I was in the minority....
Anyway, I taught kindergarten and one of my boys students brought me a box of
Christmas candy as a gift. Well I opened it and it was half gone... he said that he and
his older brother ate a piece or two on the bus ride to school. It was really funny!
3- One other. We had a gift exchange at a restaurant job I had one year... it was at
the Christmas party that we exchanged gifts and I got a freaking ham Bone! LOL!
IT was so freakin' gross!
It was one of those gift exchanges that everyone brings something and you pick the gift
you want under the tree... I picked that bone! LOL! (It was in a very pretty bag... I guess that's where the gifter spent the $5.00)

One of my Favorite gifts....
An Indian style gourd bowl that someone made for me while I was teaching.
It's beautiful!

Regift.. I don't usually. Opps! I take that back... I have once! I won a prize at a baby shower and it really wasn't my style... so I gifted it to someone who really LIKES it. (and I knew she would)
There is NO way she'll ever know that I regifted it. LOL!

I can just see that boy and his brother trying to be so good, but still breaking into the candy. How cute.
