Today is Show and Tell Friday at Kelli's House and this week I am showing "some" of the chickens that reside in my kitchen.
This is a framed under glass cross stitch that I found at a yard sale for $1.00. I'm always surprised to find handmade items at yard sales, but I guess they just become clutter if you have moved on to other things.
These are items my hubby bought me. A chicken whose tail feathers are measuring spoons, a canister and a cutting board. All of these items hold special memories for me. An anniversary, Christmas or birthday.
This is the side of the curtain that hangs on the window over my kitchen sink. It is special to me too because my son gave it to me for Mother's Day. I was so amazed that my "tough guy" bought me curtains, dish towels, pot holders and a rug, all with chickens on them, for Mother's Day one year. He wrapped each of them individually in newspaper and left them on the kitchen table for me to find on Mother's Day morning. It was like Christmas. I would have hung those curtains no matter what size or color they were, but they are perfect!
Chicken bottles, potholder and mug:
Chicken plates found at Dollar Tree:
Speckled Hen and Silver Sussex Cockerel:
The two chickens on each side came from my grandmother's house. They are glass flower vases. You can see the chipped paint. The chicken cups and welcome chicken were found at a thrift store in the mountains.
More chicken plates:
A chicken mug rack. The mugs are harvest gold and have fall leaves imprinted on them.
Do you have a collection or theme in your kitchen? If so, what do you collect?
