Flora and fauna

Suprise! My fauna are not alive and moving. 

Soon it will be Easter in Norway and they are selling decorated eggs and chickens figures  everywhere. Signs of Easter they say. I can't really see the connection between what Jesus did on the cross of calvary with the chickens. But they say that egg means new life in it when it cracked. Like Jesus is giving new life to those who believe ? 
But anyway, I made my own chickens or they look almost like chicken or duck?

Meet Hønhild.  Høne is Norwegian  word for hen ( mother of the chicks) in English .


And this is Anton, the duck. He got his name from an old lady where I work. By the way, these stuff toys are for sale in the activity center where I work. The profit goes to the elderly.


I found these two in a book. They are actually partners. I crotheted them and  put some hair on their heads like you can see at the above pictures.


And now my flora. Roses are from the flower bouquet I bought last week end. Still blossoming.




I took pictures of these flowers from the shop. Maybe the customers think that I am a crazy woman. I took some shots anyway with my phone while buying other stuffs. 











Thought for the day

Give your future to God and you won't regret the past.

  17. Hi Joy, Love your little duck and chicken... SO cute... AND the flowers are MARVELOUS. We have snow here this morning.. Pretty--but cold out there.

    Have you ever been to Holland to see the gorgeous tulips there in the spring? We love tulips and some of our come from Holland originally... Can you grow them in Norway?

  20. Ooh how funny, I always take pictures in shops when I spot something beautiful. Most of the time I think 'people must think I'm a bit weird' but I have the reward afterwards: beautiful pictures and a full purse!;). Such a funny duck and hen you made! I would love to make such things my self. Love, Tabitha

  21. Lovely flowers;
    and no, there's not much connection between the cross and chickens.

  22. Did you do those by knitting or crochet? Sure they are gorgeous. And the blooms are so wonderfully made by our Creator. Signifies His beauty.

    God bless your Sunday, Joy.
