A Little Excitement to a Dull Work Day

Shortly after noon today a co-worker brought a bunch of boxes to my desk. I could tell from the return label that they were supplies I had ordered......well, all but one of them.

I lifted the box puzzled about what it could be.

"Another clothing order?" he asked. I order almost all of my clothes on line and he is used to bringing up those boxes.

"No," I said. "The box is too big." Then it hit me. It must be the rooster bowl that I recently won by commenting on Laurie's bargain hunting blog. I was pretty excited to get it opened. I was not disappointed. Look how beautiful the bowl is!

That's one of the chickens from my own coop checking out the new addition. :)

I decided to display the bowl above my kitchen sink.
Laurie sent a very lovely handmade card with a fabric center of flowers.
Inside the card was yet another rooster! I just love him! He is full of colored rhinestones and has a wire hanger.
I hung him on my kitchen china cabinet.

Laurie, thank you so much for everything. I love it all.

So glad the gifts arrived. I had intended to get them in the mail right after I posted about them, but as you know, our town came to a complete standstill last week. The bowl and the ornament look so at home in your kitchen. I am so glad that you are enjoying them. laurie
