Just Us Chicks For Breakfast!

Hey everyone! Thought I'd share an everyday setting for breakfast today, just me and my chicks:@)
Ok, maybe one little pig too.
See that huge coffee mug? Oh yea, that's keepin' it real!

I've had this chippy chicken (rooster?) salt and pepper/napkin holder for well over 15 years. 
A month or so ago one of the eggs fell off and broke. Bummer.

I happened to go through the wedding/baby shower isle at AC Moore, something I never do.
Look at what I found, "about to hatch" S&P party favors for a baby shower!

This just puts a big ole smile on my face every time I look at it:@)

  2. That is so cute. I had my husband pull down the spring tubs last night. I want to make this house look a little more "springy" before the day is over.

  11. Lynn, this is a really cute breakfast setting. This morning I ate my oatmeal standing up in front of the t.v. in the kitchen watching the Today show. Classy eh?

  12. Hello Lynn,
    this is a fantastic replacement for the broken egg. Tell us the truth, it fell down, broke and then the little chick hatched. I think, I see the hen lucky smiling. Waited so long for this moment.
    Greetings, Johanna

  31. Good morning Lynn. I was just about to tell you I have an egg to fit that hen and look what you found. Perfect. What a cute post and i would love a half of grapefruit right now. I used to have a grapefruit tree in Florida. Boy, do I miss my delicious picked off the tree grapefruit. You just gave me a sweet memory. Alas, the mountains are no place for citrus trees.

    Have a chicky day today.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  36. You little chicken table setting is great. However, it would not be complete if you had not thrown in one little pig.

  58. So cute! It's amazing what you can find when you look in a different part of the store. Thanks for your comments about my pitiful efforts, You girls all put me to shame. But I still love to come and visit!

    ReplyDelete
  64. So Cute... makes me smile too :)

  65. This is wonderful...and that hatching chick you found is a stroke of genius. I think it is much cuter than having two matching unhatched ones.
    Adorable!!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. What a surprise to see a chick hatching out of the egg. I would have bet on your egg having a pig, but wait, do pigs come from eggs. As always, a delightful, playful table.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I broke one of my Swanky Swig juice glasses a couple of weeks ago. I almost cried.

    I think you did well in your choice of a replacement for your egg. :)
