If this isn't a sign of true love then I don't know what is.

I needed to add some rivets to the pockets of a pair of jeans I'm making. The first two that I put in looked like they had been in a train wreck or something

The next two weren't much better and finally my dear hubby decided he couldn't take it anymore so he helped me out.

We managed to get the two rivets in and they look pretty good. I explained to him that I needed a special anvil to install them and would have to find one to buy.

Well, while I was making dinner he was out in the shop working but what I didn't know was, he was making me my own anvil with his new metal lathe that I let him buy a few weeks ago. He left the anvil on my desk as a surprise. Now, how sweet is that! I'm gonna keep him.....

Even better than my DH...buys me La Mia Boutique every month when he is in Europe. Isn't it nice they appreciate our creativity?

Yup, he's a keeper. I'd give you ten thumbs up if I could.

My girlfriends warned me to keep mine at the boyfriend stage. Now 24 yrs later and he still brings me those little surprises. Gotta love those Keepers!

That is so awesome. Of course, it's also a good deal for him cause how can you say no the next time he wants a new "toy?" :)

He was probably just as excited to make it for you as you were to get it! Win-win. :D
