Friday Show and Tell

Good Friday Morning!!!!!

It is absolutely gorgeous in SW Virginia today with temps in the 70's and tomorrow and Sunday is supposed to be in the 80's! Almost pool weather!
Kelli over at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ hosts Show and Tell each Friday. It is so much fun to look at everyones treasures.
I have heard said that if you have 3 of an item, you have a collection. Well, I guess I am officially collecting chicken pitchers! I found this green one last summer at an Estate sale. I though it was so cute!

Then a couple of weeks ago at another Estate sale I found a yellow one!
So at that point I got on E-bay and started looking for them. I found that there is also a blue, pink and solid white one. I really wanted the blue one so I started bidding on it. Unfortunately it went way out of my price range. So that very afternoon I went to a local antique store and I just had a "feeling" I was going to find another chicken pitcher and guess what???? I found the blue one!


All three are living in my "happy" shelves, just waiting on the pink one and the white one! I am now on "the hunt"!!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
