Hey Everyone, hope you're having a great weekend! We just got home from another doctor's check-up trip to St. Louis. Great progress on my husband's inner ear surgery, and we always have a wonderful visit with the kids and grandpuppy.

I mentioned last week that I had "recycled" my white wheelbarrow with the veggies and rabbit tureen after they made their appearance as a tablescape. I was still lovin' the garden veggie theme, so I made a place for the wheelbarrow on the sideboard in the kitchen hallway.

But I wanted to bring out the hens and chicks for summer, so I changed out the rabbit tureen for a "chicken" tureen. Both of them white ceramic, that usually live in my kitchen china cabinet along with their sister tureen, a duck.

I found the vintage chalkware momma and baby chicken years ago at the flea,
and they are always part of my "Summer" decor.

Here's the "Veggie Garden-Vintage French Seed Packet Label-Flowerpot Wreath".
Try saying that 3 times fast...

I found these order forms in the little seed catalog that I'm sharing here too.
So naturally, they had to be showing garden seeds!

Each time my husband walks by the sideboard
 he's attacked by crazed carrots grabbing onto him.

so sorry...
fine...I'll tuck them in a little better.
Be careful, you might get pecked.
Like I always tell my hubby,
 "Don't mess with my livestock!" 
...or the decor.

(Just being silly)

close quarters and bad lighting.
but I just love this spot.

You wanna know where all the roosters might be?
I have them all corralled downstairs.
