~Going to a Hen Party~

Happy Tuesday to one and all, I'm so glad you came by for a visit!  Pull up a chair and pay close attention, because I have not been able to find but one hen in my house and if you miss it, well...you've missed it.


You see, I am going to a hen party today, well, I guess it's a rooster and hen party, but I only have a hen.
In fact I had to go in search of this little hen.  I searched through several Thrift stores and this is all I could find that was anywhere close to attractive and fowl at the same time.  And this baby cost me $5.99!  I told her if she was to come home with me, but, she could not just sit around looking pretty, she would have to be useful as well.



She agreed to hold my dish sponge, she does look a little miffed, don't you think?

But first, she insisted on posing here...




...and here.


When she sat there, I realized that there was a hen on the recipe page that has Julie's recipe for "Frozen Delight", that is from my Susan Branch cookbook.  (Have you checked out her Susan's blog, by the way?  She has a wonderful one, find it HERE.)

Now be sure to go over to Note Songs and check out the other hen parties going on!  And say hello to sweet Shelia, she will be sure to answer back and tell you to "be a sweetie!"

Have a wonderful day!


Cindy

This made me laugh. Cute little chick and love anything by Susan Branch.

Karen said...

She is adorable, thanks for the info on hens and roosters...I'm so confused lol. I guess you can tell I'm a city girl. I thought only roosters had combs.

Tami said...

Oh she is just too precious with those long lashes of hers!

Hugs,

Oh, Cindy! I'm so touched that you went to the hunt for a little chick so you could come to my party! You are just so wonderful. Now your little gal is very darling and I can tell you'll have to watch out for her! :) So glad you laid out the rules for her! :) I can tell she's a little flirt. So if you ever get a Rooster - watch out! :)
Thank you so much, Cindy, for going to all the trouble to go shopping for a yard bird for my party!
You ARE the sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Cindy I like that little chicken you found with her big eyes and long eyelashes. I noticed that she's an egg seperator. You should try her out as she may be very practical after all. Re: my 'problem'. I don't think you sent a video link. Maybe that would help. I'm such a hands on learner. Thanks Cindy. Hugs, Pam

Linda said...

Cindy, love your sense of humor! :) Your little hen is so cute. She looks good wherever you place her. Thanks for the link for Susan Branch. I haven't visited her blog in ages so I'll check it out.

She is such a cutie pie, Cindy. Love your hen, and she's a hard working hen to boot!

I have really missed you. Things are looking up some so that's been a big relief. Mr. Magpie is feeling better at last. YEA!

Hope all is well in your world, and I hope to catch up in the next few days. I overdid the first night of the party, and sort of paid for it today. I'm trying to go easy at this and hopefully be able to blog.

Love to you and warm hugs...

XO,

Sheila

I hear ya....I have a couple of chickens and roos...but very, very few! Your new chick does look miffed...but she realizes she can't rule the rooste if there are NO other chickens!!

Julie Harward said...

LOL Very cute Cindy...I am in love with your little yellow hen..too cute! ;D

Sarah said...

Cindy, she looks to be most helpful. She is a cute one! Glad you joined the party. Love that container w/ the #1 on your counter. ;-)

Toni said...

Cindy - Love your new hen - your whole post made me smile. Thanks for stopping by me blog. My GW is really hit & miss on any finds. Monday I did score a silver chamange bucket for less then $5 - not even tarnished. Have a great day.

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

I love your new chicken, Cindy. Chicken? Is that the right word for a hen? I am ashamed not to know!!

Whatever....yours is gorgeous!!

Just like you!

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

She's a cute one!

Shelia said...

Oh, don't cry, Cindy! I'm praying you'll find a grand Rooster one day! God does care about everything, even our desire for Roosters! I'm sure He's laughing right now.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

cindy me gusta mucho el regalo de tus amigos es precioso y esa campana me encanta. Por cierto me encantan tus botes de crisal y tu bote blanco con el numero 1, tienes adornos preciosos.Bss Josefa

Sue said...

I fell in love with your hen the second I saw her eyelashes! You can see she has attitued but is so cute you can't be peeved with her! HA
Nice that you can put her to work separating your eggs which will make her worth the 5.99 you paid. Just recently I saw an egg separator and thought how useful that would have been over the yrs of cooking for a family.
