brings with them a rise in productivity from our hens ~
nothing in the world tastes as good as a bright yellow chicken egg!
since we raise chickens,
I like to collect chicken/rooster/egg things ~
like this milk glass nesting hen dish:
I love milk glass,
and I remember my Mom having one of these egg dishes ~
so when I spotted this one for only $6.00 I knew it would come home with me :)
|here chick chick!|
the brown eggs you see in it are ones from our hens this morning ~
gathered from their snug little nest-box in the barn…
|7 little eggs|
they will become breakfast ~
an egg & asparagus omelet perhaps?
or maybe used in a recipe for sweet corn bread with blueberries…
this is a little wooden egg crate that I found at a shop a long time ago ~
it holds my paper mache & wax dipped eggs…
|Star Egg Carriers and Trays|
|nice dovetailed edges|
I need to make more of these wax-dipped eggs ~
these have been with me for a while now ~ time to freshen up!
|grubby waxed eggs ~ underneath are dollar store plastic eggs|
and here is a little watercolor I worked on last night:
|'Live an Art-FULL Life'|
my mind is always creating, designing, dreaming…
so I have to let my thoughts out onto paper in some way ~
I began with the quote 'live an artful life' then changed it to
'Live an Art-FULL Life' which suits me better…
since my world & life is full of art in some way, shape or form.
|pocket-sized paint box & brush|
I think I'll scan this and pin it on Pinterest ~
or even place it on my sidebar on this blog
since it so relates to me
...and my love for all of the little things I've drawn into the sketch…
~ thread, scissors, paintbrush, pencil, handwork (hand)
and of course the pot of herbs that they are springing from ~
are so important to my everyday and my folk art.
Rain is expected today,
good day to do a little Spring Cleaning here in the farmhouse…
Hoping your day is filled with wonderful things!
* Blessed be *
