"We of the Household" had a discussion the other day on where collecting ends and hoarding begins. Have you an answer for that?
We could not come to an agreement in general, but both thought (possibly) my chicken flock had reached past the collecting phase...possibly.
It seems many of my chickens often have a sort of disgruntled look on their face like the one above.
The one below is the largest one of the
This is my favorite chicken. I bought her at a shopping area called The Strand on a trip to Galveston, probably around spring of 2002, just as a storm was flooding the area and all the shops were closing up fast. She has a somewhat sassy attitude.
The two in the photo below sit way up on top of the highest cabinets in the kitchen keeping watch on the cooking, which doesn't actually happen very often around here...
Here's a close up of the one on the left in the basket...
A couple more chickens are keeping the kitchen pig company on the movable cabinet, in the middle of the kitchen, while I'm thinking about where to put them.
We're in flux right now due to switching out some of the furniture, moving some around, and adding in some new.
I don't know why I carried it that long because I really do not love this chicken.
With the "downsizing game" I play now, based on Marie Kondo's book, if I hold it and it does not bring me joy...it's suppose to go out the door!
So I held the spotted chicken, and I thought...
"Maybe I just really don't like those spots!"
This paint was the closest to brown that I had in my chalk paint stash, and my goal now is to complete projects with what I have on hand.
First of all, I'd say use up whatever you have on hand! Second, I've found One-Step paint works well on both metal and pottery if I have it on hand.
But then, most other chalk paints work well on those items too.
Just so we're clear, my opinion is based on my experience with the paint. I do not receive any compensation for my opinions, and I pay for all the paint I use.
Covering up the spots is as far as I've gotten with the chicken this week. I'm planning to add some dark wax to make it look aged, but I'm looking for inspiration on how to finish it up.
If you have any ideas for the chicken's makeover, please let me know in a comment. Your thoughts and ideas are always appreciated.
Thanks for dropping by!
