I Won!

Dear Mom,
I won a blog contest!  Terry Golson was spring cleaning, and she generously decided to have a give-away contest to re-home some items she hasn't used in a while.  The prize was this charming hand-stenciled cotton runner. 
Terry is an animal lover and an author of many cookbooks and an adorable children's book, Tillie Lays an Egg.  I found Terry's Hen Blog one day while viewing the live-streaming webcam of her flock of hens.  Terry loves to speak about her backyard poultry keeping, and she has even appeared on The Martha Stewart Show! 

I have been a follower of Terry's blog for a long time, soaking up her advice and enjoying her pictures, recipes and animal stories.  You can imagine how excited I was to win her blog contest!

The package was sealed with a hen sticker!

Ooooo, lots of other goodies, too....I feel like a kid on Christmas morning!  The package included a note card featuring Agnes and Edwina Hen.

Look at these clever one-of-a-kind magnets made from pages out of vintage books!

And here is the eagerly anticipated table runner!

Time for a photo shoot!

Okay, so I saved some of Meg's eggs and a few her beautiful feathers...and I keep them in a teacup.

This runner will be a great Easter decoration.  Thanks, Terry!

Love, Bonnie Jo

It is perfect for you. I can't imagine that prize finding a better home. I didn't know you had saved some of Meg's eggs and feathers. That is sweet.
Congratulations!
