A Very Chicken Christmas
It just occurred to me that you can pretty well read what people think of you by the gifts they choose. All this time I was going for sophisticated aesthete, but it turns out that nope, what comes to mind when loved ones shop for me is “she keeps chickens”. I guess it could be worse, right?
This year’s gifts have been most fowl and I mean that in the best way possible. Taylor and Daniel both headed straight for the chicken aisle in their shopping this year:
Dave and Karen went the whimsical route with this fluffy hen.
I can’t decide if she looks more like Luna…
Where Cathy found this next item, I have no clue. Hard to tell by the photo, but when the weighted ball is set into motion, the chickens’ heads bob up and down to “peck” at the corn. So cute!
Katherine channeled chickens in a very big way! Inside this cute bag
I found this pillow that reminds us who rules the roost:
and then, this beautiful egg tray that she MADE! Can you believe it? I knew Katherine was taking a glass-fusing class, but who knew that chicken gifts could be elevated to the realm of art?
We haven’t finished opening gifts yet, so there might even be another chicken or two still lurking under the tree. Thanks to everyone for feathering my nest!
