Swag.

I may not be a Friend of Mel (especially after yesterday’s post), but you don’t have to be in Hollywood to collect awesome swag these days. Two packages arrived yesterday: one, an Amish-woven egg basket sent by Alexandra. It’s personally dated and signed on the back by it’s weaver, a 14-year-old boy.

Cody will probably appropriate this one, too.

Thanks, Herman!

In the second box were a set of back-ordered egg plates my stepdaughter, Tina, had purchased for my birthday. They were totally worth waiting for! Note the individual spoon and salt cellar!

Can’t wait to put these items to use! I’m going to remind the girls today that they each owe me an egg in exactly three months! One question I’m often asked is whether I’ll be able to tell which chicken lays which egg.  So here are pictures of typical eggs from each of their breeds:

Eggs from Light Brahma chickens like Amelia
