Blogtoberfest Day 25: Chooktober

I treated myself to another little pressie last week.

I spotted this sweet little chicken doorstop (made with a lovely vintage floral) over at Swirly Thoughts, and I just couldn't resist. I currently have one of those ugly plastic doorstops for the front door so this is a much better replacement.

Mr Chicken has a little zip at the bottom, so he arrives empty and you just fill him up with rice. I had brown or arborio to choose from, so I thought Mr Chicken would probably prefer brown rice.

When my package arrived, Lynsey had also included some of her gorgeous vintage storybook tags (perfect for the upcoming christmas pressies), little recycled notebooks, and a koala teatowel all the way from the UK!

Thankyou Lynsey for the extra sweet suprises. If you'd like your own doorchook, you can find one right here.

chookie is very cute indeed!
mum has a plain ol snake & the kids love putting it around their necks like a scarf :)

I have a giveaway on if you want to add to your list.
Thanks Cam, hope you have a fantastic Sunday ♥

Being rather partial to chickens myself, I'm thinking a veritable flock - each manning a door - would be just the ticket!

What a great little doorchoock, much nicer than the usual block a door thing!xx

Cute. Doorstops, I don't think many people use those here. I never thought about using one, but it seems pretty practical! And it's nice, to be welcomed by such a flowery chicken :-)

That's a great idea-- love it! The name 'Doorchook' is too cute.

I just submitted my entry in the Superpops challenge-- I was not 100% sure where to leave the post with the link so I just re-posted in the original challenge post.

Hmmm did you use the brown rice so you wouldn't have to eat it...? :) I would have too!
Chooky looks great.

That is really sweet! What a great idea sending it waiting to be filled - you'd save so much on postage that way! A great little selection of loot to go with it as well!

Oh, and I hope you don't mind me writing this in the comments... but I've finally put my Blogtoberfest giveaway up.
