Barnyard Bash Give-Away!

Hey everyone! I stopped at my favorite antique shop hoping to find something for a give-away and I was happy to walk out with this cute milk glass hen shaped covered dish!
I love these and have a couple different clear glass ones myself, they are great decorations and nice candy dishes. Approx 7" x 5 1/2" x 6" high.
And you just might find one or two chickens around the barnyard!!!
 


I'm joining Blue Monday, Tabletop Tuesday, Nifty Thrifty Tuesday, White WednesdayCenterpiece Wednesday and Vintage Thingie Thursday with an easy runner/centerpiece idea, simply use three napkins and something fun!
I hope you'll join me on September 10th, to be entered in the give-away 
post something related to animals and enter the linky party-easy peasy!
Details HERE.
Have a happy day:@)
I'm joining atticmag for Give-away Friday!

  5. I think my grandmother had a dish like that. It has such a familiar look about it. I'm going to poke around my mother's stuff and see if it ended up there.

    I put your party button on my blog sideboard. I hope to be able to round up some thing from the barnyard to yak all about!

  11. This is such a cute idea! I love milk glass, and that's a wonderful shade of blue - makes a beautiful background for all the other colors.

    Hope you have a great Blue Monday!

  12. How very sweet. Granny Walden would set me in the middle of the floor of her farm kitchen with the butter churn to make butter while she was cookin' up a meal when I was little. She would mold the yellow cow salve and put it in a dish just like this to sit on the table. Thanks so much for the memories girl!

    Ya'll have yourself a marvelously blessed Monday!

  15. Well, every barnyard needs at least one chicken. This one is a beauty. My mom had a collection of milk glass, that now resides at one of my niece's home. She didn't have a hen on nest or you could be certain that one would be here. :-) Not that I'm not willing to share with my nieces. LOL
    Love the one you found!
    I'm looking forward to the Barnyard Bash. Working up a part as I type.
    Thanks for hosting this fun idea! ~ Sarah

  16. O, I hope Mary at LITTLE RED HOUSE sees this because she collects milk glass hens on their little nests...I sent her one a couple years ago to add to her nice collection..

    ReplyDelete
  17. I bought a milk glass hen, like yours, to resell when we had our shop....it didn't sell, I liked it so, I kept it....found ANOTHER one....bought it....think I'm starting a collection! Now, I need the rooster.

  18. I adore that white milk glass hen! What a great find! And your giving that away? Oh my, how wonderful!
    And I know how you feel about the fair projects. I always feel an urge to create after we go there but I don't think I can come even close to those talented people.
    HAGD,

  39. Great idea for the table runner! Love the milk glass chicken! I remember Martha Stewart had some glass goldish brown turkeys that she used for her Thanksgiving table years ago and thought how fun that would be to have some hens or turkeys to use in my tablescape. Can't wait for you barnyard party! Thanks again for linking up to Centerpiece Wed. and sharing your ideas.
