Yesterday was Gretchen’s birthday (see their blog for the fur girl account thereof), but on Saturday, I got a special delivery.
The lighthouse was but one of several items in the care package from Coffeeyarn. As you can see, there was a little confusion about whose lighthouse it is.
I had some trouble getting photos. Sis was VERY taken with it at first. There’s a reason that long before Sis’s mother was even born, the Knight and I joked that we wanted a female basset next and we would name her Nosy Rosie. EVERYTHING is to be investigated by those big noses, and evidently, the lamp had far more smells in it than most things.
I even left it wrapped in bubblewrap, out of reach, for a good 24 hours before I even tried to unwrap it and get photos, but as you can see, that only seemed to make it that much more interesting.
Beautiful and unique as the lighthouse lamp is, there was so much more in the package! There were orange crisps, but they didn’t live to see the photo shoot. I had to use the first bits to bribe the fur-girls to allow me to open the box in peace, and then I had to taste it too, and then the Knight got home…
Aren’t the placemats and napkins cheery!? I am itching to do a kitchen makeover, and these colors are very inspiring.
There were more goodies in the box too, but the other item I know will interest you was my own hank of wine-yarn. Despite having cast on for a new sweater, I’m itching to make a wrap with this lovely yarn. Coffeeyarn needs to change her screen name to Coffee&wineyarn, doesn’t she?
Thanks so much, Barbara! The lamp is going to find a safe, treasured spot in our home, and I can’t wait to go Rav-stalking and pick a pattern or two for the wine-yarn.
Anyone else notice which doggy won’t let the yarn dyed in wine out of her sight? Hmmm… I don’t know what’s worse… A terrier who clamors for cashmere, or the hound who seems to want the wine…
How was your weekend? I’ll tell you about mine tomorrow… It didn’t follow the plan so well, but it was nice just the same.
