Gifts from Rosemary Hill

I recently received some beautiful handmade gifts from Bogi of Life in Rosemary Hill.  I was completely taken by surprise.  I've admired the knitted items that show up in her stories, that she explained were made by her mom.  How lucky is she?  She sent the sweaters to Rod and Danielle, but I've enlisted Lena and Allen to model them for us.  Rod is in the basement, and it may be a couple of days before I see him again.

Here is the first sweater.  I love that it's large enough to fit my NBA guys.

The second sweater is a beautiful coral color with cable knits and three working buttons.  Lena said, "Danielle, who?"  It may be difficult getting this back from her.

This is the third sweater.  Can't you just see Rod in this sweater?  I am in awe. 

There were a few other gifts in the box, including this beautiful rug, 

these two bunny figurines, and a few other items that will be used in future dioramas.

The family portrait.  

I love my new gifts!  My thanks to Bogi and her mom.  These gifts will be cherished by the residents of Morristown for many years to come.

    1. Juanita - I think you are right about Lena and that sweater. I may let her keep it for a little while. That color looks good on her.

    Thank You so much for this post!! I love these pictures!! I am so glad You love the gifts and that the sweaters fit Lena and Allen so much :)
    Thanks to Everyone for the nice comments, it was great to read them!
    I invited my mom to see this post and translated her the kind words, she was very glad. She is 67 years old and hasn't ever been abroad but felt it heartwarming to know that her creations travelled so far and got so nice welcome.
    Many hugs from both of us, from Hungary! :)
