Easter eggs

Top-1

The theme for this week at Mixed Media Monday is eggs.  Of course I had to do an Easter piece with Easter only being a week away.  One of my dreams is to have chickens of my own.  Being able to go out to the chicken coop with the kids to get fresh eggs with bright yellow yokes for breakfast, yummy! Store bought eggs don't even come close.  Fischer just realized recently that chickens also lay white eggs, he thought they only came brown.  Unfortunately building a chicken coop isn't at the top of the list for my husband right now.  We're not sure if we are going to stay at the house we are in, or move, so until we decide, no chickens, plus he really doesn't think it will save us any money, which is probably true, we can get pretty cheap organic local eggs around here.  For me though it's not about the money, I just love chickens, how fun for the kids too.  If we did have chickens, I could totally picture Amelia carrying her chicken around just like the girl in my picture.

That chicken looks a little concerned with those eggs in the basket! This is a fun piece. I just heard about a farm on Vancouver Island that sells eggs that are pink, blue, green and yellow as well as white and brown. It all has to do with the type of hen apparently! Happy Easter!

Tammy, what a wonderful piece! I hope you get your chickens at some stage - they might not save money - but yum - fresh eggs! Now I want some too, LOL! Diane
