Curled Wood Roosters from Poland


Look how beautiful this is!


And this one!


And this one too!

These lovely, colorful curled wood roosters just arrived in the mail from Kathy,

Her cousin, who lives in Poland, brought them with her, at Kathy's request, when she came to visit Kathy and her family for the summer.

I still pinch myself every morning when I walk into my dining room and see them dangling playfully from my chandelier! (You didn't think I would put them away for Christmas did you?)

These lovelies are made from exactly the shaved and curled wood I have been making all the noise about! Except - they are stained in the most gorgeous, brilliant colors.

Kathy tells me that in Poland, Easter is the time of year when everyone makes lots of ornaments and decorations - not so much at Christmas. Christmas is more about special foods.

The roosters are traditional Easter ornaments that are hung around the house and placed in Easter baskets during the Easter season in Poland.

Mine, however, are going to be on display year round!

Thank you, Kathy, for sending me this amazing gift. To say that I love them is a huge understatement!


Kathy is quickly becoming my sweetie's favorite cook! And he has already put in an urgent request for Kathy's Coconut Chicken!

Here are links to a few of his favorites so far!

Adobo Chicken with Mango and Avocado (this is Kathy's husband's favorite!)

Chinese Meatballs ( I made mine with pork and they were delicious.)

Fabulous Bolognese (Meat) Sauce (everything she makes is kid friendly)

And two more on my Sweetie's wish list: Chicken a la Mediterranean and Chicken Pasta Salad with Dill.

Me? Well that's easy! As soon as it cools off and I am allowed to use the oven again, I am making a Rustic Peach Galette!

Got kids? Check out Kathy's "kids blog". You just never know what she will come up with next!

Kathy has promised to share a special Polish treat during the Holiday Cookie recipe exchange! I can't wait!
