Red Encore.

The postman came to our door and surprised us with an unexpected box yesterday. I hurried up to open it and see not only what it was but who it was from. Out peeked this bundle, wrapped in bright blue tissue paper with a miniature and very cute pink hippo tied on with a cheerful orange ribbon ...the sight of which brought the just up from her nap Annabelle, racing across the room to further investigate .








By that time I had read the note and found out who this surprise was from. Turns out it was sent to us from the lovely LKH. A absolute doll of a woman, who hails from Texas and also happens to be my biggest Etsy customer. Lauren is a giver. That's obvious. She also really good at making peoples days. Out of the blue, she had worlds cutest little red poncho sent to us. Seriously, she is that sweet. Lauren, you shouldn't have but you did, and it blessed me so much. I wish you could have heard the delighted squeal that I let out as we pulled the precious poncho out of the tissue paper. And then I wish you could have seen the biggest smile on David's face as she modeled it for him when he got home last night...and heard how he chuckled and called her "little red riding hood." You didn't have to. But then you can't help being the precious big-hearted, thoughtful, dear woman that you are, can you?

Thank you.
Now for the pictures.




It's so cozy and soft, like a blanket you can wear. And if you want one of your own, thanks to another, literally Lovely lady and her amazing little shop, you could have your very own. And you should hear the story of how we all randomly met. I would say, it's all rather remarkable.




Oh and if you haven't already, don't forget to leave a comment on this post to enter my current give-away. A winner will be drawn on Friday.
