For your birthday, your aunt gave you a maple syrup dispenser shaped like a rooster. Please write her a thank-you note:

My beloved aunt Gurtroood---- Thank you for thinking of me when you saw this exquisite piece of french-country history that will sit next to grandma Dorthy's 1930 mixer in our eclectic kitchen. I will keep syrup from amish country in it. Love, Tara
