The Gurgling Cod

A few weeks ago I wrote about adding a sense of place when decorating your home. I live in Boston, so I mentioned the fact that I've always wanted a Gurgling Cod and that I finally was going to buy one.

A few days later, I received a nice email thank you from Shreve, Crump & Low, which is a Boston jeweler and the only place that sells the Gurgling Cod.

Well, guess what?

A couple of weeks after that, I found this beautiful package on my doorstep.

Could it be? I didn't dare guess what could be inside. But I sure knew what I hoped for.

It was!

Thank you to the people behind Shreve, Crump & Low for the gift -- I love my gurgling cod in Nantucket red (so lovely!); it has found a permanent home on the living room mantle.

I think it looks happy, don't you?

I also love the handwritten note on real stationery. We're so lucky to have a company with such timeless style right here in Boston. Love you, Shreve!
