Though I am happily chicken-obsessed. Admittedly. Chickens, bees, pots, gardens, food- my passions. I am bringing home three new chicks in the next few weeks- one has already been "adopted" and named by my dear friend and studio assistant, Natalie. One little chickie will be Trudy, named after her mom. I'm excited to have a little namesake. Edna and Pearl are both named after Gary and my grand and great-grandmothers. I like the old fashioned names. Maybe there will even be some baby chick pieces that come out of our adventures in chick-raising again.
I let the girls out this morning, as I do most mornings that I'm puttering out in the garden. They are so curious and come running towards me when they lose sight of me. This is from this morning, when I did some light gardening and sprucing up with my coffee. Mmm, toes.
Happy Spring, friends. Oh, and if you're chicken-obsessed like I am (or you love someone who is), these chicken tumblers will be in the shop when they're ready in another 2 or 3 weeks.
