So the other day the mailman left a large squishy envelope on my porch. I saw from the return address it was from my friend Lois in Nebraska. I thought she had sent me yarn or made something for me - how cool is that? Well I had no idea what I was going to find when I opened that envelope.
First these two guys dropped out -- oh my goodness how cute are they?
And then the rest of the contents of the envelope spilled out -- OH MY GOODNESS!!!!
I laughed my butt off (oh I wish that was more than a figure of speech - LOL)! And I laughed and laughed and laughed. So many cute cute chickens! A WHOLE FLOCK!!! I think my favorite might be this one .
Those silky purple "feathers" are hard to resist! Thank you Lois -- I love each and every one of them! I'm thinking of using the first two chicken in a display in my kitchen and I want to make a garland out of the others to decorate my sewing studio. How can you not smile when you see these gals? I can't.
And I added some more poultry to my home with this outdoor stack of chickens.
It is a smaller scale rendition of the metal chicken stack I have in my sewing studio. I got the metal ones online about a year ago and didn't want to put them outside for fear they would rust. I picked up this stack which is wooden at Joanns last week. I need to spray them with some polyurethane to prolong their life as the icicles hanging from their tails isn't helping them.
Hope you are having a good day!
