White Chicks

Hello, Dear Ones. That's right...white chicks.

White chicks in the kitchen...


well, and one chick that is so transparent, you can see right through her. We've all met chicks like this, haven't we? :)


Just another vignette in the kitchen. Chicks. Well, chick bowls with lids. What were this made for anyway? They're cute but probably not very useful.


Here's my favorite little olden spice rack covered with Roosters.


White mini tureen sitting atop a Gooseberry Patch cookbook! These cookbooks are so cute and colorful and make their way onto my kitchen countertops quite often. I do manage to use a recipe or two from these cookbooks too.


Just the spot for white chicks and one very transparent one! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Hello, I Love You

Hello, I love you
Won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you
Let me jump in your game
Hello, I love you
Won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you
Let me jump in your game

She's walking down the street
Blind to every eye she meets
Do you think you'll be the guy
To make the queen of the angels sigh?

Hello, I love you
Won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you
Let me jump in your game
Hello, I love you
Won't you tell me your name?
Hello, I love you
Let me jump in your game

She holds her head so high
Like a statue in the sky
Her arms are wicked, and her legs are long
When she moves my brain screams out this song

Sidewalk crouches at her feet
Like a dog that begs for something sweet
Do you hope to make her see, you fool?
Do you hope to pluck this dusky jewel?

Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello
I want you
Hello
I need my baby
Hello, Hello, Hello, Hello
~ sung by The Doors

  1. Hello Sweet Shelia!I do love your white and transparent chicks! ;) Too funny...

    You do have a nice collection. I have a little mini white soup tureen too plus a couple of gooseberry patch cookbooks. They are good ones, aren't they?

  2. Love those white chicks!! I have an amber chick...kinds loses something doesn't it? White chick works:-) As for what they were made for...candy dishes? My mom used the amber one for years to hold candy...doesn't hold much though. Course being the messy housekeeper she was I do recall hers holding buttons and sewing junk. Nice post! Vicki

  3. Girlfriend you are just tooo sweet! Those White Chicks ROCKA-MY-WORLD! They actually remind me of my Gramma because she had them all over her home. What I wouldn't give to have one that belonged to her. Long gone.

    Know what? You bless me.

  4. I have a collection of these White Chicks *and Roosters* too... perfect for holding small kitchen items that I often need but want out of sight and hidden in something charming. Milk Glass is such a beautiful yet still affordable collectible... and it holds up to daily use.

  6. Hi Sweetie!
    I don't have any white chicks, but I have one of those transparent chicks, although she's so old that I am not sure I can still call her a chick.

    She belonged to my father's mother, then my Mom wangled it away from her MIL (no mean feat), and then it came to roost in my kitchen.

    She's a beauty -- I'll have to show her that she has "sisters" in the great world out there!

  8. With all the hens and roosters around there must be some loud cluckin' going on. Especially if you are cooking chicken.... some feathers may get ruffled.

    Gal, you have the sweetest kitchen vignettes. You do have the decorator eye.

  14. I have lots of fond memories of my mom's chicks...
    I have one chick and I don't remember the color - does that mean I don't love it like yours ?

  24. Hi there Sheila! I remember receiving one of the milk glass ones as an Easter present with candy in it back in the 1940s. I still have it along with several that my grandmother had. I get them out every Easter!! Take care, Sally

  26. G'morn sweet Shelia ~ Oh, yes, transparency ... you betcha!

    We sold many a nesting chick but never a white one, they are gorgeous. The spice set is wonderful ... our kitchen shop was full of these treasures of yore! Love it.

    Your collections are just beautiful, like you.

    We had a fabulous blizzard yesterday, 15" of that gorgeous fluffy stuff ... yippee!

    Have a great day ~

  27. Those are such cute chicks, Shelia! I love them. We used to have a blue chick years ago (my mother did), but I think the white milk glass ones are cuter. Love your spice cab, too!

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  29. Shelia, I'm loving that spice cabinet. Your chicks look so cute, sitting in front of the cabinet. Maybe you should keep measuring spoons inside them - to measure your spices. Great vignette. laurie

  30. Shelia I love your white chicks! I have a couple myself, and love your vignette.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Shelia, your white vignette is a happy one for sure! I've a few of these around HFTS too. I like to serve chicken salad in the ones I have. ;-)

  36. What a nice "chick" collection!! I think I'm the only one without a gooseberry cookbook too! Too cute, just like you Shelia!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I had a nice giggle 1st thing this morning when I saw "White Chicks"! (Hubs is black and . . . you can figure the rest out!)

    Love the chicks! I'm a rooster gal myself. Last August Barb had a rooster link party that was great! http://barbsgoodlife.blogspot.com/

    Thanks for dropping by this morning!

  38. I love your chicks, they are sooooo cute! I also love your little soup tureen!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love that song! Your chicks are cute! I use my smaller chicks to store things and sometimes I use the slightly larger ones (holds two cups) as soup, stew and chili bowls. Not only are they cute, but they can be useful!

  40. I was cracking up when you said we've all met the kind of chick you can see through. Too funny. But I am in love with the rooster spice rack.

  42. Hello dearest Shelia,
    I love your little "Be a sweetie", that is why I had to come over and begin to follow you and read and comment of your posts. I love your little affectionate greeting.
    Your chicken dishes are very sweet. I wonder what they were meant to be used for, I have never seen them in use, only as decorations.
    Hugs, Cindy

  43. Why oh why do you taunt me with all of your chicks(roosters)??? I love them all so much and unfortunately(hehehe) I have met a few transparent chicks!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Cute chicks! I do wonder what their original storage use was...It is always good to have more storage in the kitchen. I hid my shopping lists in a vintage cookie car, I would love to find a chick too!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I had a good laugh over the transparent chick! Yep, we've all met a few of those, Shelia! Cute chicks you've got there!
