How to pick the perfect gift, WW entry with Linky

Kissing Fish Bowl by my friend Jim Rice of Naples Clay Place.

Kissing Fish Platter.

Or so many other choices!

The other day I was browsing at a store here in Naples, Florida called Exquisite Gift Shop.  They had so many great gift ideas.  I'll be sure to stop back by for this upcoming holiday.  My friend, Jim Rice, is the potter for the above pictures and I talked to him today about his kissing fish line.  He says it's a great hit with those people looking for a perfect wedding gift.  He also told me this sweet story about a marriage proposal.  One of his customers asked him to customize a plate that said on it, "Will You Marry Me? Once the plate was made, the guy took it to his favorite restaurant and had prearranged with the chef to have his girlfriends food served on the plate.  Once she started eating the food she read the words.  She was so happy and said yes!  

Do you have a favorite gift or sweet story to share?  Be sure and let me know, I love hearing about them!

Also, visit our Giveaway tab and I'd be happy to link up via Social Media:)

Nicole

    1. He'll be happy you liked them:) I could ask him for a discount for you. He just made a toilet seat with a few fish in the top. He has been making pottery here in Naples for over 26 years. Have a sweet WW!
