A Clucking Collection
Ya, right - anything POULTRY/CHICKEN related is what's easily found in my humble abode. The lavender fabric Roo shown above is only one of my finds - he came from an Antiques/Vintage store in Indiana. I saw him 2 years ago sitting forlorn in that store, didn't buy him - but later regretted it. Don't wait till regret sets in - buy it when you see it! So....last year we returned to that same Antiques Mall, and when I seen him ROOSTING STILL, I snagged him and plopped him into my little cart, and he came home with me. No "buyers remorse for me - I just LOVE HIM! I first saw this Roo in a magazine several years back - I think it was MaryJane's Farm - and he was pictured on a corner of a page. A person can purchase patterns to make their own, but gee, for less than the price of a pattern, I got him ready made to display. Lavender was my Grandma's favorite color way back when, by the way...just reminiscing here.....the good old days.
Here is a wooden carved Roo that hubbs found for me at a thrift only yesterday.....Such a striking paint job! This guy needs a beak repair - somewhere along the line somebody musta dropped him and snapped it off - probably the reason he was dis-guarded. I can fix that. If I so choose. Kind of gives him the look of a 'de-beaked' bird - think I should fix him? What say ye?
I have more birds n things to show you in the next posting. There are quite a few chickens to be found here!
