Lesson 1227 – Clever Norwegians

When you raise chickens, you get chicken things.

A friend (hi Cinda) recently sent over this little guy. It is a boiled (felted) wool chicken designed to hold a box of wine as a gift. You open the buttons in the back, insert the wine and voila, instant gift. Apparently this adorable chick was handmade by a woman in Norway.


I don’t have many boxes of wine lying around, but I have discovered that if you roll up a tee shirt – preferably an old one (or two) with a few holes and tears that you’ve been trying for ages to get away from your college-aged son- and insert it into the chicken, you get a lovely non-alcoholic couch buddy.

And who wouldn’t want that?

Oh those clever Norwegians, what will they think of next?
