One for me, one for you! (revisited)

First a great big THANK YOU to all who left birthday wishes and shared birthday memories with me during this past week! I am feeling much better, thank you…still not completely over whatever summer germ I picked up, but at least functioning again!

I loved reading the birthday memories. Some were sweet, some were tender, some were funny…and they all made me feel immeasurably better!

Virtual friends are wonderful friends!

Another thing that made me feel better this week was receiving the most wonderful package from Tina at What We Keep! I mentioned here that I was lucky enough to win a giveaway she sponsored. She had promised an apron and a gift card, but there was much, much more!

I opened the box and saw something red! I was confused…I was sure the apron was supposed to be of brown linen! I pulled it out, and what did I see?

What a cute bag! A sturdy red canvas bag, embroidered with "red hen home” over chicken wire!

That wasn’t the end of the treasures… I pulled out 1, 2, 3…

giveaway 002

…4, 5, 6 fluffy little chicks! Inspired, I know, by my own six chicklets! Plus there was a cute blue bird with a tag that says, “It’s the smallest birds who sing the sweetest songs.”

Then there was this darling red-and-white striped dishtowel embroidered with my initial…

…And this beautiful apron embroidered with a fancy red hen just for me! I love it! Sorry about the blurry picture in the mirror…I sent the chicklets (my surrogate photographers) to bed!

Thank you, Tina! You really made my day!

Now I have the chance to return the favor! The winner of my birthday giveaway for the custom beadboard sign is:

Laura from I’m So Vintage!

Laura has a lovely etsy shop that just happens to be where I purchased the wooden shoe last that appears next to several of the beadboard signs in this collage! That coincidence tickles my fancy Winking smile

So Laura, I hope you’ve been thinking about what you’d like on a beadboard sign.

I’m thinking something along these lines, maybe?
