Show and Tell


This is a chicken I picked up on vacation a couple of years ago. We were vacationing in Tuscon, AZ, and we took a day trip to Tombstone. I found this chicken in one of the gift shops up there. They had a whole lot of these, in different shapes and sizes. Apparently, they are made by the local Navajo Indian tribe. I thought that was really neat. Something about the chicken just spoke to me. Looking at this little chicken reminds me of the great time we had in Arizona. And now I have a small piece of Navajo art in Virginia.

I have only recently gotten into chickens. I am not sure why. Chickens strike me as cute and funny for some reason. They are not the brightest animals in the barn, but that is all right. I am a few cards shy of a whole deck, myself.
I try to not think too much about it and just enjoy the chickens for what they are.

She is too cute - I love her!!

It honestly looks just like something I would buy - despite the fact that it matches nothing in my house it would be too hard to resist AND it tells a story. Perfect!

I have vague memories about this, but there is something about chickens bringing good luck. A cousin gave me a chicken pitcher for my wedding and told me the story. I'll have to ask her to retell it.

The chicken is cute, kinda kitschy. I like it. :) And anything with great memories attached is better!
