A Memory for Mr. Rooster

I haven't gone thrifting in ages, so after running some errands I thought I'd stop by a couple of thrift shops on my way home. And doggone it, you would know, I came back with exactly ONE thing!

But it's a neat thing, and I'm glad I found it.

A collapsible wire egg basket.

My little rooster likes looking at all the eggs.... they remind him of his girlfriend who got dropped at the cash register and lost her head... He was sad at first but enough time has gone by now that he has only sweet memories of his little hen friend.

I like the industrial look of the wire when its feet are up in the air...

and when it's flat as a pancake

I think it would be cute with a plant in it.... hmm, might need to play with that idea!

I believe I have one of those chicken shaped egg baskets, but I don't know where it is. Maybe it's hiding in the shed -- if so I'll probably never find it! Oh well, Mr. Rooster would probably have a chicken heart attack if he saw it!
