Happy St. Pat's day to all of you! My maiden name is O'Regan, so we do have an Irish heritage. My grandfather brought his wife and children here from England, but his father or grandfather was originally from Ireland. One day I will do the Ancestry DNA testing to see if it can pinpoint an area in Ireland. I've done a little genealogy, but have never been able to find "where" in Ireland his family came from.... just generalities stemming from his surname.
It would be interesting to know.
Now... my quilted valences (which I made to go with the quilt my dear friend made for my birthday a while back) are finally finished and up! Here's a pic:
We made them for our master bedroom, but since the cats spend so much of their time on our bed, we put the new quilt and valence up in the upstairs guest bedroom. Cats are gated off from the upstairs.
Oh... another interesting fact (well, not that interesting to anyone but us): As of the Ides of March, 2016, we have been in Texas for exactly 45 years! Of course New Orleans will always be our home, but we do love Texas!
Now on to "Chickens":
I am fond of chickens. And I love to see chickens on blogs. Another blogger, KathyB has a blog called "Spot on Cedar Pond" and one of her blogs is devoted to "Just Chickens". Check out her Silkies, Frizzles, and Sizzles, etc. Adorable!
Here's 2 pics I took from her site... (Kathy, I hope you don't mind?)
And here are my clay aga chickens - the 3 tiny ones, fired and done!
