Chicken Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw puzzles seem old fashioned in this high tech society, but doing puzzles have many benefits.  While working on a jigsaw puzzle, it has been studied that there exists continuous activity throughout  the brain involving all the cells.  People engaged in jigsaw puzzles stood to gain a longer life span and less chance of falling prey to memory loss.  It makes us alert, increases our concentration, and expands our creativity.  Looking at the images constantly helps us practice visualization, which is again good aid for any physical activity that succeeds with mental activity.  It also affects our physical health by lowering our breath rate, reducing heart rate and blood pressure too.  Now, add chickens into the mix and we have an activity that helps our brain and satisfies our love for our favorite bird.

Unique Chicken Christmas Tree Ornaments

I love sparkly, blown glass Christmas ornaments. I own many,  but the chicken themed ones are always my favorite.  These ornaments are heirloom worthy and can be passed down for generations. I like trees with different themes and these ornaments would fit in well with any county themed Christmas tree.

Old World ornaments are hand crafted in age – old traditions with techniques that originated in the 1800s.  Molten glass is mouth blown into finely carved molds.  The ornaments are all hand painted and glittered in a series of labor intensive steps to achieve beautiful creations.

Christmas is synonymous with caroling, and one of the popular carols included in every party and caroling list is “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”  “Three French Hens” signifies faith, hope, and charity. Crafted by artist Susan Winget and Ne’Qwa Art via the centuries-old process of reverse hand painting on the inside of mouth-blown glass. Each one-of-a-kind ornament includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
