We Got Mail!

Yesterday the cutest artwork arrived in my mailbox. A few weeks ago Queenmother had a blog giveaway and it was my name that was drawn. We are a happy recipient!

Now.... don't you think that is the cutest chicken you ever did see?

Tucked also inside the envelope was a very pretty hand painted book mark. As I like to say, you just can't have too many bookmarks! It'll be a lovely addition to my collection.

Thanks so much, Queenmother ... what a delightful treat!

Wishing you all a beautiful day
with a little bit of fun tucked in there somewhere,


  1. Lovely, and no I don't think I have ever seen a cuter chicken.
    I love everything made by other's hands, you should be very pleased my friend, I am so happy for you.
    Have a great day.........:-) Hugs

  2. Yes. It's quite a chick! :)

    Can't help but think of my mother, who loved chickens and had a small collection of roosters & hens. I thought they were corny when I was a young girl; now ... not so much.

    Now they represent all that's good about life, from farming the good earth to caring for it's creatures; from Sunday church to backyard picnics - and oh so much more.


  3. Congrats on being the winner of the bookmark! That is one lovely, plump, adorable chicken!!!!

  4. Glad you liked the Funky Chicken. As you can tell the bookmark was a very early attempt at art. The chicken is a lot newer. I am still working on getting better. But I agree with Bernie I love anything done my hand because I know it was made for me.

  5. I forgot to tell you. It is finished with a spray varnish and does not need a glass over it, if you want to frame it.

  6. What a cute chickie!! I love mail like that!

  7. I wanted to post your bookmark too, but I couldn't get a photo that did it justice..... yes, handmade is special! Thank again, Queenmother!

    Glad you all are enjoying the cute chickie! She is adorable!

  8. I really like the title Queenmother.
    And how fun for you to get such a great gift!
    Congratulations :)

  9. Illustrations of cute fat hens are always SO fun, aren't they? They always make me smile.
