    WingingIt Chillin' With My Peeps

    Short version of the story:

    I have an online friend who is close to my exact opposite. We jokingly call her City Mouse and me Country Mouse. I want to send her a box of things, sort of picking on her a bit, but also to share some good country living with her. I have a magazine I'm sending along with some recipes (she's growing a small garden, I'm rubbing off on her...lol) and a jar of something I've canned. I also, as a gag, have something from TSC that comes in a tube and is sort of makeup related and fowl related at the same time. I'm not posting what it is outright because she knows about this site, and while I don't think she comes here, you never know. So if you know what I mean, Please do NOT post the name and give away the surprise. [​IMG] I'm also including a BYC bumper sticker.

    So - now I need a few more items.....can you give me some suggestions? I can sew, but I'm not great at it, so if it's a sewing project, it has to be simple.

    Thanks!

    What about one of those plastic bag keepers with a country themed fabric? (unless she uses reusable shopping bags).
    Seeds from your garden?
    Rooster kitchen towels? [​IMG]
    Something John Deere?

    I'm still thinking, what a fun project!

    I know the secret thing, love it. Had a BYCer from Scotland here not long ago, I gave her some, too. [​IMG]

    I'm pretty sure TSC has pink John Deere bandanas. [​IMG]

    Too bad it isn't closer to Christmas. Last year, I bought two boxes of shotgun shell light strings from TSC similar to these, except one strand of mine is all green and the other is all red. http://www.shotgunshellchristmaslights.com/

    I really think a feed bag tote is in order. One with a big old hen on it!

    How about a tin JD tractor parking only sign....or an IH tractor parking only sign.....

    Can you get with all of your "country" friends and ask for their favorite country recipe and make a little recipe book for her?
    Oh how about an old fashioned wash board? That would be great! Cool and usefull!!!! There is only one company left in the USA that still makes 'em but they sure are nifty!!
    A chicken/rooster themed apron? That's be loads of fun!! Some are simple and easy to make!

    I do like the seeds from your garden idea!
    I also saw a really sweet butter bell on ebay that has a rooster on it.
