Friday already…?

<p>If it’s Friday, then it’s time for a bit of eye candy ;o)</p><p>When I was a little girl I spent most of my summers at my maternal grandparents’ – and those memories are some of the best memories of my childhood.  My grandmother was a very caring woman who showed me how to sew and how to bake (cooking wasn’t really her forte – but she was really good at making the pressure cooker explode).  One of the things that has stuck in my memory about my grandmother’s house was that she had a milk-glass chicken in the middle of her kitchen table.  Since I’ve grown up and gotten my own kitchen table I have been searching for a chicken just like hers – trying to relive some of my childhood memories, I guess.  Over the years I’ve picked up a few here and there but they weren’t the same.  However, I am happy to report that <span title="Roger Rabbit – my SO" class="serendipity_glossaryMarkup">RR</span> and I found a chicken just like hers at an antique shop in upstate NY.  Actually, RR was the one who found it (one of the many reasons why he is the best – he’s really good at finding stuff and remembers what I’m looking for better than I do).  It now lives in a place of honor in the middle of my kitchen table, just like hers did.  And, it’s full of flotsom, just like hers was ;o)</p><p><img src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/09-29-06016.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px; width: 495px; height: 358px;" alt="" /></p><p><img width="496" height="359" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/09-29-06015.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></p><p>The smaller chickens I’ve started using to hold my stitch markers ;o)</p><p><img width="499" height="361" src="http://jessaluknits.com/uploads/Photos/09-29-06017.jpg" style="border: 0px none ; padding-left: 5px; padding-right: 5px;" alt="" /></p><p>Happy Friday, everyone – enjoy your eye candy! ;o)</p>
