Funky Chicken

We stopped in the lovely town of Collierville during a trip to West Tennessee this past October. The town square area is an absolute delight, filled with interesting shops, all looking out over a community park.

Once we spotted the Chickadee's shop, we knew that we would have a good time. It had an eclectic mix of art and antiques, and the recycled metal chickens made us laugh out loud. So, of course, we had to adopt one and take it home with us.

Our "funky chicken" now stands watch in the solarium here at the cottage, checking out the activity at the back yard bird feeders. He's a cool dude!

So, if you ever get a chance to go to west Tennessee, you might want to check out the town of Collierville, located southeast of Memphis. You'll be glad that you stopped in for a visit!


  1. Love the chicken!!!!! this seems like such a nice place - hope to make it there someday. Now that I'm just a passenger, maybe the big red truck will stop more often in place like that, lol.

    Hugs, Donna D.
