a sweet perk

I got the sweetest gift this week.

As a speech-language pathologist, one of the best parts of my job is supervising and mentoring interns. Once a future SLP graduates with their master's degree, they have to complete a 9 month internship under supervision of a seasoned veteran.  
(I'm well seasoned, slightly overdone :)  
Working with interns is one of my favorite parts of my job and 
I have been blessed to work with some of the most amazing young SLPs.
As many of you know, the current school year is coming to a close and so is the internship of two interns I had the privilege of working with this year
...and they happen to be roommates and friends.

This week, I walked into my therapy room and in my chair was a gift bag and this sweet little thing:

It's a vintage metal shelf rack in all it's chippiness.  

It has tiny little painted details...

...and nice little curves.

It's painted a perfect shade of cream

and chipped in all the right places.
I hung it in my master bath and added some fresh hand towels, washcloths
and new and vintage bath accessories.

My intern, Sydney, gave it to me along with some chocolates (my favorite thing) 
and a collection of sticky notes, labels and notepads 
as a thank you for the support I gave her this year.  
Sydney told me this was a little chipped and I could certainly paint it but after seeing my blog, 
she figured I wouldn't want to do that...and she's right! (she's brilliant by the way)
It's perfect just the way it is.

Thanks Sydney!!!!!
(and special thanks Sydney's mom!  :)
