  7. What a great blog! Thanks for the daffodil bulb idea - I'm going to do that in addition to making him his own larger daffodil painting!

  8. Hi Jane, you might have to improvise with the daffodils; either forced in a pot (now at garden centers and grocery stores) or a gift certificate for the fall. Happy 10 year anniversary!

    What is this rubber duck doing in my kitchen?
    Why, keeping an eye on the egg whisky! (or perhaps he's a fugitive...!)

  28. I believe the idea of the chicken and the egg came first... I could be wrong.
