Chicks, Peep's and tending the garden!



Finished these "Chick" potholders and several more......  
Peep's!

It's a small flower with very meaningful name----it whispers
"forget-me-not!"

Collection of forget-me-not's hand painted on china. The plate was painted by my mother-in-law. I painted the other pieces.

It's a  little early to plant our garden....look who is ready to shooooo away the rabbits.....
" CHESTER"
 

Hope you have great week!

Hugs, Carolyn

  10. Warm greetings Carolyn...
    Your chicks and peeps are ever so cute! And your china...oh my, a bit of Springtime throughout the year...and so very precious. Momma's china was covered in violets. We have such pleasant memories of times past, do we not?
    My kind regards to Chester...I fear he would need to "shoo" only snowflakes in our garden today. Snow...can you believe it?
    Happy hugs to you...

  17. I did collect chicken items but stopped as I had so much. The chicken potholders is something I would like, though. All of my potholders disappeared and we can't figure out where to. I bought some at the dollar store to tide us over until we find where the lost ones went or I come up with something better.

  18. Oh my your chicks are wonderful ! And that china---you are very talented.
    I have started planting my garden, a little early but it has been warm warm here. Am really trying to grow a lot more of our food. All the cold crops are up. Have a wonderful week end

  19. Love your china - beautiful painting by both your mother-in-law and you. I adore forget-me-nots - think they are the sweetest flowers and the prettiest blue. Your chicks are sweet - I seem to have a chicken theme going on in my teensy tiny little kitchen. Fun stuff.
