Sister's Chickens

Did i mention ? yes I did that one sister is completely redoing her entire house and she doesn't want her chickens anymore. Said she is going for the beach cottage look in her kitchen and her family room/great room.

So I brought the chickens home with me to enjoy till my next flea market set up. Then I will sell them for her.

I set them on my counter and stove not sure where they will roost LOL

    I really never thought about chickens in my kitchen but now I think they are really cute. However I have way too much to have all these things in my little kitchen. I don't have much counter space at all.

She also has a mother chicken with her little chicks cookie jar


                  Guess for now they will stay with me

She also gave me an old apple cookie jar with a smaller matching apple and salt and pepper shakers shaped liked apples. I just remembered them they are out in the garage in a box. They are shaped  like a red delicious apple but bigger of course.
Maybe I will show them next post. I know they are not a sought after item. They were for the country kitchen look .                                        

I am going to Tulsa Oklahoma this week end for the Antique Road Show and it is 104 there now !! AM and over the weekend hotter I am sure.
I am really hoping to meet Gloria Lierberman she is the lady who always does the antique jewelry.
It just makes me drool the jewelry that people have brought and it has been showed on the show. None of mine is that fabulous but taking a piece or two to get appraised for fun.
I hope to take pictures however some places like that may not allow pictures???? we will see . I will show you when I get back.
I need to get packed tonight after work. I have made a list and will check it twice LOL  . I always forget something on a trip LOL don't you???

  1. I have always had a thing for chickens, every since I raised them as a child. I have stepped in many a chicken pooooooo with my bear feet, Nasty. But they are so cute. What's up with every one liking chickens?Richard at My Old Historic House

  2. Ooo... can't wait to hear more about your visit to the show! Blessings... Polly

  3. The roosters are just fantastic. I have the same speckled one and I love them all. So pretty. I know someone will love having them. Way too cute. Thanks for the gracious comments on my frame. Hugs, Marty

  4. Roosters are a favorite of a lot of people, so they should sell well. Have a wonderful weekend trip to Tulsa at the Antique Road Show -- then when you get home I hope you'll stop by and check out my auction. It's in progress until 9pm EDT on Monday.

  5. I don't have a sister, but how wonderful when they decide to have a clear out! xx

  6. Those chickens are fabulous - so vibrant. Hope the trip to the AR worked out well and you have discovered that your pieces are worth tens of thousands!

  7. What a wonderful collection of chickens! You have a great blog!!

  8. I am not sure how I landed on your blog. I was looking through food blogs. I am glad, I did. This is a charming and beautiful blog. I have enjoyed, getting to know you through your photos and comments.

  9. I was wondering if you still have these items, and are still thinking of selling them?
