Hen, eggs and jellies...


Hi girls, hope you've all had a nice weekend,  well  the question is "what come first, the chicken or the egg?"  in my case it was the egg or eggs!!



   A dozen big brown eggs freshly laid by my friend Shirly's hens.




So the last few days we've enjoyed boiled eggs and soldiers, a scrummy mushroon omelette and the biggest yorkshire puds you ever did see!!


Then, guess what come along, the chicken from the lovely Henny Flo from Fat Hen and Flo




I couldn't believe it when I saw that I'd won  a lovely rosy hen thank you so much Henny Flo I love it, she's now called Henny Penny and she sat  for a little while, on my big brown eggs. Sadly shes now sat on an empty nest as the eggs have all gone, but I shall buy her some more tomorrow.



Shirly also brought me some lovely desert glasses, the stems are twisted glass and they have fluted tops, they don't make them like that anymore. So I had to make some jellies for tea, raspberry,

 

lime and....



orange which we had with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a flake!! 

I'm off for a shower now then put my clean PJs on before I watch "Dancing on ice"...thanks again to Henny Flo for my lovely hen, and thanks to Shirly for the very tasty eggs.

Night all, enjoy your evening,

Love Lucey xx

Hello, those glasses are beauties (and the jelly looks good too). May | ask how you made/bought the fresh hens eggs label? I would like to make or buy some for my crafting. Thanks very much for your time.xx

Hello Lucey, Fresh eggs are so so lovely, you can't beat them. I have a couple of hens and collect hen "trinkets" as my husband calls them.I love the hen you won, lucky girl. Thank you for you lovely comments on my blog,yours too is great you seem like my kind of girl. I did a workshop last year and learned how to make the crochet flowers, they are very simple, 100 Flowers to crochet and knit by Lesley Stanfield is a good book for help.x

I just adore those jellies you made, they look so cool in the fluted glasses! xx

Henny Flo said...

Henny Penny looks at home perched on your eggs. We have a hen called Penny. She is our broody girl and is often found in a similar position, in the nest box though rather than the kitchen side.

Oh I love Henny Penny, she looks quite at home there, I would love to have some hens and be able to use my own eggs! Jelly always looks great in glasses, I am in the mood for making and eating a trifle now! xxx

Your Henny Penny is a real doll, as well as those fresh eggs. I've never seen such lovely desert glasses before.
