The Rest of the Chickens

Surely you didn't think that all those chickens I posted last night brought an end to my poultry posts, did you? Our county fair had other ways to celebrate the national foul. Starting with the cloth, above, which covered one of the tables in the animal house.

Chickens were in evidence in the exhibit hall, too. This papier-mache critter was part of the big elementary school art show at the fair.

The quilt, above, was a blue ribbon prize winner. Neat roosters, aren't they.

Yes, there were also paintings and photographs on display.

As for this quiltish rooster, he was the creation of another of the school artists. High school, BTW.

Bloggy Business: sheoflittlebrain has handed me this award:


It seems I have made her smile on occasion. I hope frequently! And my instructions were to pass the award along to others who have made my day a happier one. Here goes with a partial list; several I might have included were already nominated by she:

* Right back to The One Acre Wood
* Desert Cat

Awwwww thank you Hon. You certainly do make me smile.

But then, I kind of think we 'Ladies Of A Certain Age' tend to get a kick out of a lot of similar things. As well as get *miffed* by a lot of similar things. -grin-

SnS -- I couldn't agree more! Especially concerning life's absurdities and its small pleasures.

Oh thank you! How nice to know I make someone smile...I often make myself smile..but, I love it when I can do it for someone else...as a matter of fact, you made me smile hugely with this award!

CB -- you not only make me smile, but you also make cringe at the fact I have neither knitted nor sewn a seam in the past umpteen years. Been too busy dealing with databases from hell! However, I see the fun you have with your many projects & I share with you briefly!
