Oh my goodness! That milk glass hen just took me back to my childhood. My grandmother had one exactly like it and I broke the top part. I remember feeling so bad. I still remember it to this day. The funny thing was, I don't think my grandmother cared.

Diann said...

Hi, Linda,
You have sure been lucky in winning. I haven't won anything yet, but still hoping. :)
Thanks for the heads up about the giveaways...some I knew about and some I didn't.

jeff campbell said...

Cute things as always Linda...milkglass, and especially the delicate painted bird...Peace to you my friend...

GardenofDaisies said...

I really love the milkglass nesting hen you won!! I have a few, mostly in blue/green colors.

Susan said...

Good afternoon, Linda!

I LOVE the painted glass bird. It is gorgeous. Oh my goodness. And I'm a huge fan of milk glass, and anything of the chicken persuasion ;-)...

Thanks for posting about all the giveaways, including mine! Good luck with it and I entered you in five more times for your purchase from my little shop. Thank you! I hope Charlie doesn't mind sharing his house with Ms.Sunny Flower Puss. She's small, so maybe he won't mind so much. :-)

I hope you are doing well and enjoying your trip. We've got warm weather here in Michigan today... and you're in Texas... right? Goodness sakes, I hope it's not too hot today, but just perfectly comfortably warm.

Have fun and chat soon,

Jenny said...

Wow, you've been cleaning up on the giveaways girl! I may have to enter the CSN one. I love their giveaways, too, so much to choose from!

sissie said...

Hi Linda!
We bloggers do have special priviledges don't we! Like receiving wonderful just because gifts and winning giveaways. And, I was lucky to win one of yours or should I say the kitties were lucky to receive all the wonderful stuff from Charlie.

I love your special gifts and I can't think of anyone sweeter than you to receive them.


Can't wait to hear about your trip.


Vintage Christine said...

I collect (oh good grief, what DON'T I collect?) the mini hen on nests, or salts, and I just got a gorgeous Westmoreland one that's red on the outside and has a white milk glass interior! You and I have so many similar collecting passions and I know you would love all the milk glass I have. Unfortunately I'm trying to sell it, waaaaaaaah! I just knew you'd love that birdie.
