Happy Banner & Happy Hens

I can't wait for Spring (next month here in Aussie). This delightful fabric banner has provided vintage inspired Springness to my home office since mid April this year thanks to talented crafter Camille from Camille's Creations. I won it in one of her blog giveaways! Kind Camille sent each entrant in the giveaway one of these banners!

And this is my also delightful ceramic hand painted Happy Hen. I named her Euphegenia. My parents bought her back for me from New Zealand 10 years ago. Euphengenia is based on a Silver Grey Dorking, one of the oldest breeds of chooks in the world. I'm a chook girl from way back having grown up with pet chooks. Someday I hope to live somewhere again that is suitable for real chooks. One of my real someday hens will definitely be named Euphegenia too.

You don't have to travel to New Zealand to get Happy Hens which are based on traditional poultry breeds, you can buy them online here:

I'm sure many of you will be happy to know that Happy Hens are available in pink. The following pretty blue-eyed girls are called "Peony Hens."
I'll be back here this Friday with that original vintage sweet delicate something I'm giving away to celebrate my 1 year Blogoversary. While I'm on the subject of giveaways, I recently found out about a great site called Giveaway Scout where a large number of giveaway blogs are automatically scanned, and the site is updated hourly.

See you Friday, Happy week! :)
