Spring!!




For a long, long time I tried to find the little chickens like my mother (the Easter bunny) placed in our baskets. Finally about 5 years ago I found these. They are a bit worse for wear and some of them are missing important parts but I've cherished them. They're much too fragile to do much with but I set them out among the eggs at Easter anyway.



Then a few days ago I walked into Safeway and what do you know, babies! Somehow each one of them seems to have its own personality.



Hope you're having a wonderful first day of spring.

God bless you, Diane

Oh how sweet, Diane. I love them.. You are right---they do all have their own personalities. Believe I lke that little yellow one the best.

Have a great evening.
Hugs,
Betsy

We have no Safeway here..Wonder if I can find them elsewhere??

I am feeling good, Spring's coming helps.

Diane, this is such a fun photo share! I remember these, too. I don't have any, but I was just telling the college kids here, yesterday, that Easter baskets used to be a lot different than they are today! Of course they laughed at me! This is such a sweet reminder of change and gentle blessings we often take for granted.
