I ordered this handmade silk shawl from India to use as a rebozo for this baby (<a href="http://clothing.novica.com/silk-shawls-and-scarves/silk-shawl-maroon-paisley-throne/137897/)" target="_blank">http://clothing.novica.com/silk-shaw...hrone/137897/)</a>, and it arrived today. But the FedEx guy didn't go to the right door. He's supposed to come to the front and ring the doorbell, but dh left the garage door up when he left, and he went to the back and knocked. We can't hear a knock at that door - it leads to the laundry room and a closed door after that. I went outside 10 min after he came and found the note that says I have to sign for the package - so I either have to go get it myself after 4pm or wait for the next delivery. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: Why couldn't he have just walked a few more feet to the front door? It's a much more pleasant walk past the flowers to the front door than dodging boxes and sand toys in the garage! Oh well, one of those things... I just can't wait to wrap up in my silk shawl - I've always wanted a silk shawl!! Is that girly or what? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Those silk shawls are pretty! Bummer about FedEx though. That happens ALL the time to me.

Ugh. How irritating! We've had DHL claim they couldn't get in the gate. So leave it at the manager's office. Duh! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

I hope you get it soon!<br><br>
Just FYI, they are also called "dupatta" and you may find better deals buying them on ebay, etc. under that name. That way you can have a whole collection. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I have several that go with traditional outfits including some silk ones.<br><br>

Oh, shoot! I swear I have had some of those guys not even knock, just leave a note - I find this note and I KNOW I have been home all day. Sigh.<br><br>
Hope you can get it soon!

Neat, I didn't know that! I was looking for silk rebozos, then tried silk shawl and came up with that. I don't know where they get the silk, but from what I understand that website is for handcrafters to sell their stuff.<br><br>
I ordered the pink/maroon one. It was hard to choose - very pretty!<br><br>
I guess I'll go pick it up after 4... silly FedEx!
