OMG!  I won Linda Master's give-away prize:  this intricately carved foot-warmer!

If you haven't checked out Linda's blog, Miracle Chicken, please do yourself a favor and head on over!  She carves the most amazing animals and all sorts of lovely objects --like the foot warmer, above.  Needless to say, I am so thrilled to have such a finely wrought addition  to Merriman Park!  Linda recently was inducted as a fellow into the hallowed IGMA and she has some perfectly marvelous GLT  (gorgeous little things) available in her Etsy Shop.

Thanks, Linda!  I can't wait to see it!

Lucky you, John!!! What a Gorgeous little foot warmer! Every Grand House should have a foot warmer to put in the "Carriage" when the weather is chilly!!!
