I had found a really neat metal rooster at the TS. It was hollow inside and had been painted white with some of the paint rubbed off to make it look rustic. (Sorry I didn't think to take a picture.) I just knew it would be the perfect surprise for my friend/neighbor who has been going through a tough time dealing with her Dad's cancer and her recently dianosed RA. No way I could save it for a birthday or Christmas gift--it was perfect for a "just because" gift. Needless to say, she was thrilled with it since she collects rooster items and this one was really heavy and unique. ;o)
Yesterday, they were leaving with their trailer for two weeks in Oregon. I got home from an errand and found this neat gift item waiting for me by the door! I can't tell if it is metal or just ceramic painted to look like metal but it is really neat. Thought you'd like to see it too.
