Look at this beautiful butterfly box, as I call it, a friend brought to me the other night at work. I was so surprised. She knows I love butterflies. I've always been fascinated with this little insect ever since I was a kid in gradeschool. The box is deep and will hold several small items. It's not my birthday, not my anniversary or any special event. Maybe just the fact I am alive and still breathing! Isn't this a pretty gift?

I love butterflies also. I mostly see the yellow ones and brown ones around here. I am sure your friend just wanted to make you feel good all over. I will go look at the picture now.

As soon as I saw no picture I figured you were probably at work.

It was so sweet of my friend to bring me such a nice gift. She knows what a nut I am about butterflies and Elvis. She alternates buying gifts from an insect to a gorgeous hunk. Thanks for responding.

I have friends who bring me, "Just 'cuz" gifts. These are gifts they bring just because you're you! They know you like something, that thing makes them think of you and they bring it to you just because you're you. I like a butterfly box is a lovely just cuz gift. My Mom (may she rest in peace) would have liked such a gift, she had a real thing for butterflies.

That's a good name for the gifts this friend gives me. She has such a large heart and is so thoughtful. She just had her first grandbaby and I would think she'd spend her money on the baby instead of this old friend. I am always flattered with the gifts she buys me. My mother is also gone and she loved the little insects also. Thanks for responding.

I'm glad your photo came through finally. I was also picturing a box to hang up outside. My mom loved everything with butterflies and this is something we would have gotten her for a gift. Actually, I like it too. It's especially nice I think to get a gift for no special reason - you have a good friend.

What a wonderful and thoughtful gift. So of my favourite gifts are the just because you are you gifts. I love getting gifts and I even get jealous when someone gets a gift, like a birthday, and I do not get one. I can be such a child LOL

It's really pretty. I can see you making something like this to sell at craft shows. This is the time I sure wish myLot would post the photo so members with email notifications could see this gift and not have to go back to the initial discussion. Very inconvenient! Thanks for responding.

hmmmmmm....No pic, I see. I was expecting one the way you worded your discussion. None on your profile page either. I checked. Anyways, I'm picturing it in my mind and see a beautiful box with butterflies of various colors/sizes on it. Thanks for sharing, my friend.
