A Fortune Cookie Keepsake

Check THIS out, Readers!

My wonderful Mother-in-Law, Christie just arrived for a visit (from Colorado Springs, via Toledo, Ohio.) And she brought me this awesome Fortune Cookie keepsake to remember my special time of baking, and baking (and baking) fortune cookies for Haiti earlier this year.

(We are not sure what purpose the cookie keepsake was intended to serve. Is it a pill box? Someone called it a "dream keeper". Since I am a big dreamer, that is what I will always call it, my little dream keeper.)

I am so touched.

Isn't she sweet?

I hope you all have such thoughtful MILs!
And here she is reading to my kids.

We've got lots of fun ahead of us this weekend.


  1. she is sweet! and what a super dream keeper...might turn the nightmare of all that baking into sweet dreams. I love little things that hang around and remind me of something. That's why I have so many little things hidden away in drawers...when I run across them, I stop...and remember...and smile

  2. It's beautiful! What a wonderful keepsake!

  3. how fun for grandma and the kids. i'm off to see my little ones at dan's this weekend. you deserve your special award.

  4. I'm really glad she got to visit you guys! That's a neat idea for a dream keeper. Is it a paper weight or can you put stuff in it? A picture of your best fortunes, your family. Congratulations on the bloggie award!!
