Mushrooms, Clovers and Chickens, Oh My!

Packages in my mailbox two days in a row! Yep, I call that spoiled!
Yesterday, a package arrived from Valerie, our fearless host of this fabulous swap! Just look at the goodies that were inside!

Is this not the cutest bouquet of mushrooms you ever saw?

And just in time for Saint Patrick's Day, this fabulous crocheted clover chain! Do you see what my chickens are wearing? Real, live Mardi Gras beads!

"Woohoo! Show us your beaks?"

Knowing my obsession with chickens, Valerie made this adorable chicken ornament. I am going to have the cutest dang Christmas tree in North Carolina by the time this swap ends!

Wasnna see my mushroom bouquet again?

Who knew a fungi bouquet could make me smile so much?

This beautiful doily is destined for a spot underneath one of my many chicken collectibles!

This bookmark cracked me up! In case your eyes are as bad as mine, it says...

"There are bold mushroom hunters

And there are old mushroom hunters....

But there are no bold, old mushroom hunters..."

One more look at these cuties! Thanks so much Valerie! This is so much fun!

ha! I love that quote too....in fact, there aren't many toadstooly things I DON'T LOVE!
Glad you like everything....BTW, you oughta name one of your chickens Mardi and one of them Gras so when you holler out the door you are saying "MARDI GRAS!"
