Since I was a young girl, I have always collected something. Whether it was rocks, ants, frogs, stuffed animals, etc, the list can go on. When I got married and started keeping house, I needed to decorate. I had some knick knacks and put them around the house. At one point I had an interest in decorating "the country style". Around that time, I was given 2 ceramic chickens; they belonged to my grandmother. They are plain, nothing fancy. I am not a very fancy, girlie girl; I never was. I grew up the youngest with 5 older brothers. Anyway, the chickens are old. I'm not sure just how old when I received them. They sure are beautiful. I've had them for over 20 years and not sure how long my grandmother had them.
At the time of receiving these 2 chickens, I was given another chicken. I can remember this particular chicken displayed on a metal cabinet door. It's a cute little magnet. This, too, was in my grandmother's kitchen for many years. I would go for a visit and always look at it. I thought it was the cutest thing. This little beauty is now resident on my refrigerator.
