What's this?

AC came in from the mailbox the other day with this big padded envelope under his arm and surprised me when he said it was for me.  I was shocked.  It wasn't my birthday, no other special day had come and gone, and I hadn't ordered anything on-line.  What could it be?  I looked at the return address, and it didn't mean anything to me either.  Curiouser and curiouser!

I opened the parcel and found this beautiful hand knitted shawl inside with a little business card saying "Inspired by Life.  Created by Hand    Go....Create Something!" 
AC finally told me that this was hand made by a blog friend of his, and he knew that it was coming.  This man likes to knit, and he knew I liked shawls... so... the rest is history. 
It made my day, and warmed my heart.  Thanks Jim.  I do love capes and shawls, and will wear this one with a special joy because of its "out-of-the-blue" surprise arrival. 
Pretty nice huh?  I love it!

Thanks gals. I do love surprises, and this was such a nice one.
The wool feels like silk, and has a shine to it. A perfect cover-up for a cool summer evening.
