The Chickens Have Come to my June Kitchen

I had a post in 2008 that told how these two pieces came about:

A redwork potholder comes in handy.

My favorite set of dishes is Bob Timberlake’s Ella’s Rooster

I thought it only appropriate that I should display my 1945 edition of The Egg and I by Betty MacDonald.  

The book is so much better than the 1947 movie with Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray.  I have all of Betty MacDonald’s books – they are hilarious and great reading.

  1. Darling hens and roosters. Will have to see if I can check out The Egg and I from the library. I have a collections of milkglass hen on nest, have never seen the green or jadite. Beautiful

  2. What a great story about the tablerunner and wallhanging. I’m so glad you were able to keep these and use them in these “recycled” crafts. I love your green milk glass. I’ve never seen it in green either. I remember that movie, too funny. I’ve never read any of
    Betty McDonald books but I’ll have to see if I can find them.
