Birthday Surprise

On Monday I received a ship notice from UPS telling me my friend Julie had sent me a package.

I didn't think much about it, but when the package was delivered I was surprised when I saw the size of the box. What could it be?

 Inside was a birthday card

and a small red quilt
but then there was another box.
I was completely puzzled. What was it?

Holy Mackerel! It's one of Larry's beautiful wood turned bowls.  
 Julie's husband Larry Sefton is a woodturner.
You can find more photos of this particular bowl here.
 Doesn't it look beautiful with the Red Letter Alphabet?
Millie isn't quite sure about it.

Thank you so much, Larry and Julie!
