Back earlier this summer, we asked Chicken Mama what she would like for her birthday this year. Her reply came quickly and succinctly. She knew exactly what she wanted. Okay, sounds good to us, we said. She provided the needed info and we sent in the order.
Although we thought the order was placed in time for arrival for her special day of July 5th, it didn't arrive until this week. She's been home at Swamp River Ridge for her days off this week since the arrival of the package so it's still here waiting for her.
Now for the fun part. She suggested I do a blog post asking if any of you would care to hazard a guess as to what her birthday present is.
To give you an idea of the size of the box, here I am standing next to it on our porch. (Bad mommy that I am, I'm not going to wrap it before she gets here. What you see is what she'll get to open!)
Here are a few hints as to what might be in the package:
1) It's bigger than a bread box.
2) There are no air holes in the box so it's nothing alive.
3) Chicken Mama has one of these in her house but she says she needs many more.
4) It was handmade after the order was placed.
5) It is something you might possibly see in Europe more than in the U.S.
Chicken Mama is offering a set of her beautiful photographic note cards to the answer we deem the "best." And I'll throw in two of my quilted pot holders for the second best. Your entry can be funny or serious. Of course, if somebody hits it on the head, you are the weiner!!
Leave your guess in my comments section by this coming Saturday at 6 p.m. We'll look through all entries then and post the winner by Sunday, the 14th. Good luck and have fun! (Hee-hee!)
