Show and Tell

My 15 year old niece had arthroscopic knee surgery on the same day that I had my gallbladder removed. On one of her first outings after the surgery, they came over to our house so we could compare battle wounds. Because she's 15, and a great kid, I wanted to give her something to brighten her day. I made a candy bouquet.

I saw a couple of them online, but couldn't find one I liked that would deliver in this area. So I made my own. And here it is:


If you look closely, you'll see 18 different kinds of candy nestled in there. Yum!

Lastly, here is the happy recipient:

BTW, that's a cell phone shoved into the top of her ace bandage. I think that's hilarious!

Now THAT is a cute idea...and one I hadn't thought of...love it!

Of course I'm so lazy I'd probably just tape a bag of candy to a single daisy...

That is sucking a freaking awesome gift! Your such a cool aunt! Love the cell phone!

Um...I meant "such" not "sucking" (or maybe I meant "fucking" in the good sense)...

That is so cute! I probably would have done a bag of candy and a bunch of flowers-your idea is much cuter

Great idea for the flowers and candy.

I love that she has her cell phone in her ace bandage.
