Mr. Postman...

Don't you just love when the Postman has to drive up to the house.  It almost always means that he is carrying a treat inside his truck that won't fit into the mailbox.


On Wednesday afternoon, I heard the familiar sound of the little truck engine whining up the hill of the driveway.  I was out the door before the beep-beep could sound.  He handed me a much anticipated cardboard box and I was all smiles as I carried it in and wasted no time opening it up.  Inside I found this beautiful Dogwood Blossom card with a friendly personalized message, and a gorgeous Rooster pillow all wrapped up in delicate lavender tissue paper.

It had traveled all the way from Lavender Hill where my sweet friend Penny had offered to give it away to a new home. 
 
I love it's mustard yellow fabric with ruby red roosters.  With the added bonus of a red and yellow gingham back it is absolutely darling:-)

I have placed it in my favorite rocking chair, right next to my knitting basket where I can enjoy it's comfort all winter as I rock and create.

Thank you so much, Penny.  I love it:-) ~Rhonda

Well if that rooster pillow doesn't fit into your farmhouse, what will???

I love it. Great give away.

Now get busy knitting before you're side swiped by the upcoming holidays!
