My kids did not make we wait for mother's day - this is what they gave me:



I had seen one similar on Debbie - Words on Wheels and had even asked her about it - but never found one. Hers is white but I love this one - thanks kids.




Thought for the day ~

A beautiful Mother's Day gift! Your kids have great taste.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Your gift is wonderful! And I am absolutely puzzled as to how that number game worked!

Remington said...

Beautiful present....

Knitty said...

What? They didn't give you a ticket to fly up and see me as your mother's day gift? Guess I didn't drop a big enough hint.

I am so sorry to have missed sending you birthday wishes. I had a funny remark planned (which I hope to remember NEXT year) but I've had connectivity issues while in Florida.

My iPad won't open the gray box but I will try from the hotel's computer later today. I love the weather here but I am ready to be back home!

Lynn said...

That gray box thing is downright freaky!

Nancy said...

Your gift is beautiful.....thoughtful kids...

That gray box is driving me crazy....

Susan said...

Gorgeous candle holder, Sandie. Just gorgeous.

I think the numbers thing must have something to do with mathematical configurations.

It definitely selected the number I had in mind. It was amazing. Susan

Jill said...

Beautiful candle holder! Glad they got it for you.

Clint said...

Loved the gray box!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Ooooh, I was wondering what you were wishing for... oh, Sandie, that is just lovely!! Very nice early Mother's Day! Love that quote... always turns out to be true. blessings ~ tanna

laurie said...

such a lovely mothers day gift, its beautiful.

I did the grey box quiz and I guessed the right door, how do they do that???Is it because we are creatures of habit and our eyes go to the same spot or something, OK , I'l stop now, I sound stupid for sure!!

A Quiet Corner said...

Darn old box...I love it! What wonderful kids you have to get you such a thoughtful present...something you wanted!...:)JP

Wanda's Wings said...

Love the number thing!

Rae said...

Okay how does it work? Someone must know. That box thing is so weird. It worked and now I want to know how. Your gift is beautiful. That was so thoughtful of your kids.

silverthoughts2 said...

Haha, that was really neat.

Marti said...

That grey box thing is just way to spooky. It read my mind twice. I love your crystal lotus blossom candle holder, very nice. Have a wonderful day.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I don't like when I have to catch up. Someday I won't stress about it, at least I hope so. Love the new candle holder. Beautiful!

Ginny said...

The grey box number thing is wild!! Your candle holder is beautiful, and I LOVE that last quote, so reassuring! I will ask Phil about the number thing, I bet he will know, he's good with these things.

Sally said...

I'm taking it easy today,myself. :)

Love the gift from your kids. So pretty.

Gloria Hood said...

I have no clue how that trick is done. Great gift!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Very unusual gift - sweet that they gave it to you early! :-)

Flora said...

How interesting is that grey box,,,has to be something mathematical.... Have a great weekend!!

AudreyO said...

What a very sweet gift.

AudreyO said...

If you really want to know how the number thing works, email me and I'll tell you. But sometimes it's fun to be puzzled.

Shug said...

You sure have some sweet kids there..love the gift!
I tried to trick the puzzle, but just couldn't do it! I have no clue!
Blessings

Eva Ason said...

I'm late again :( What a lovely Mother's gift! I'll be lucky if my kids even remembers LOL! Malin might but Tom never does..ah well.

Big hugs
Eva

nancygrayce said...

I've seen a similar version of that number thing and it drives me crazy! Yes, that was my number!

I love your mother's day gift.....so pretty!

Belle said...

That was lots of fun. Yes, it guessed the right number. I love your gift, it is so pretty.

Cheri said...

I have absolutely NO idea how that gray box works...fun to do.

GrammyK said...

Loved the laughing Artic critter!!! Too funny!

And the grey box was correct. Hmmm...

We bought Daughter #3 a similar candleholder one year for her birthday. It's beautiful. Your kids have great taste!! :-)

Anna Smith said...

Omg the grey box can read my mind!

Blondee said...

Creepy grey box!!! lol


I emailed you!
Thanks!!

The Boston Lady said...

I like that quote about the universe and today is my take a breath and catch up day too! I'm sure the number thing works similarly to the card tricks which I also can't figure out. Go ask David Copperfield - he'll know. Ann

Debbie said...

Sandie, I just LOVE the blossom votive. I prefer it to the white one. You have some wonderful kids.

And that number game? C-razy!! How did it do that?

Ann said...

what a pretty mother's day gift. No clue on the first thing though.

Catherine said...

Such a pretty gift! I will have to check out the grey box on my computer tomorrow. It won't open on my ipad. :(
xo Catherine

Starry Dawn said...

Hi dear friend Sandie,
I can understand when you say that you will take it easy this day in order to catch up...
Let me tell you that I just love your wonderful blog with variety, especially today's gorgeous picture of the white baby seal!!
Have a fantastic day, Sandie!!
Regards,
Poet Starry.

Jim said...

I love your present, Sandie.
My dental cleaning day was today in Huntsville, Texas (Home of our first Texas president and governor, Sam Houston). Mrs. Jim and I went to some antique stores afterwards. They had some really pretty crystal but none like yours or as pretty.
Oh yes, we ate between my appointment and antiquing. I had a salad and a crawfish poboy with fries, Mrs. Jim had a shrimp poboy with fries and a few bites of my salad it was really good. Too bad I didn't get a picture for blogging.

You number will always come up. All the boxes at the end have only your number. The rest of the clicks don't matter unless you can see your number. I picked 17 so it was a blue number. Then again when I saw my number 17 was the only number in the oval "C" for me to click.

An algorithm (put into a little computer program) figures this out for us no matter what number we pick it will always work.

What is my prize?

Oh, I didn't read all the other 39 comments to see if anyone else told you how this worked and got it right. My answer IS right.

Marsha @Spots and Wrinkles said...

I just LOVE THAT PICTURE of the rolling white "what is it"? - a white walrus? :)

Dragonfly Treasure said...

That box drove me nuts!!
You've got such sweet kids...with good taste! Very pretty.
I, too, love your header photo!!
*hugs*deb

^..^Corgidogmama said...

I DID THAT BOX 9 TIMES..even without saying the number outloud..it showed the correct one. Maddening!

Sweet Tea said...

Well, look at you!
The first to receive a Mother's Day gift.
What do you know that the rest of us don't?

Jim said...

Sandie, if you open the other two after you do the first one (it is always the right number) they will all be the wrong one.

BlueShell said...

Amazing...that grey box...
And what a marvelous gift... lovely candle...
nice thought.
Love
BS

Crystal Mary said...

I have no idea what that scroll means?? But your gift is superb. So lovely. You are loved and blessed.

Vee said...

Ackkkk, things like that drive me nuts. I must know how it works. It's the reason I've joined your followers. Hope that you discover the answer one day. ;D

Sharon said...

What a beautiful votive! I love that.

However, I do NOT love the grey box. I have a love/hate thing with games like that. I always feel like someone has crawled inside my head and read my mind (it's a very short book...)
