My new girls...


Summer is here and I often find myself wondering where has all my time gone? I have every intention of posting, but some how these long summer days are packed with projects and small adventures. Aren't my new girls cute...Lilly, Penny, Poppy, and Rosie. Now how I became a new mama chick is something of a mystery.

I think the chicken "craze" began at the Barn House antique sale set in a darling barn. I had both my darling petunia's with me and I told them they each could select an item from the sale. Lauren decided a big sea shell and Lindsey came back to saying. "I would like a chicken mama." Well of course that is not what I meant and we went home. Jeff and Lindsey then decided maybe a chicken would be a great idea...She had to do the research and then we would see. Well now we have chicks and hopefully in 5 months we'll have eggs.


Here is a little frame I purchased from the Farm Chicks event...put in a little fabric and nails to hang some necklaces for my Art & Soul vendor table. I purchased some other goodies, but I'll have to share those another time. And my favorite purchase was this bag from Barij...her stuff is gorgeous.


I'll leave you with some pictures from my garden...summer flowers always make me happy.

Those are very sweet little chicks. I remember when I was little my brother and I convinced my mom to let us get some too, they were fun! I hope you get lots of eggs :) Your flowers are gorgeous too!

Oh my gosh, you have me laughing, girlfriend! I can just see you tending to those chicks! What a perfect addition to your family. Might we see them making an appearance in coming art projects? (Their image, not the actual chicks, of course.) Hugs, Shari

They are simply adorable! We had chicks when we were little and I think it was the most fun to feed them, they came to us as soon as they saw us coming up to them whether we had some feed or not.

The girls are both going to love taking care of them, and what a joy to know that your eggs will be organic and "home grown" LOL.

Looking forward to seeing you again in October.
