|On May 5th, with most of the family in tow-I went out to the 'A Day in the Country Sale' hosted by Kim Davies from http://www.tatteredandtorn.ca/ . I wondered around , drooling at at all the eye-candy (AND kind of sulking because I couldn't buy a bunch of stuff since the hubby recently lost his job!) BUT I did manage to purchase an old white apron AND I did get to enjoy some chit chat with a couple of the wonderful gals there- Kim, Christine from http://1871farmhouse.blogspot.ca/ and Kathy from http://www.eclecticpelican.ca/page1.php . AND of course I got to take home this old pie safe!! Kim had so generously given the pie safe to me back at her November sale as a gift for giving her a couch that she then had reupholstered in GRAIN SACKS! Yes! Seriously! and I just LOVE IT!|
|I usually take photos of this event but this time I FORGOT my camera!!!! So if you'd like-click the link to my November post you can see the couch I am talking about and check out some of the amazing vendors and their goods at this sale! Here is the link! http://myrusticfarmhouse.blogspot.ca/2012_11_18_archive.html|
|It came to me with aged wood inside -I liked it-and I left it like that for a while but I ended up painting it-to brighten it up and show off these pretty jars.|
|On May 7th, we brought home our chicks! 20 hens and 2 roosters. They were so tiny! Just 2 days old!|
|The kids were so excited to see them after school.|
|Be gentle kids!|
|Be very careful Tierney! ~She wants to be in the coop with them every day!|
And here is our coop -we will be making some changes soon-adding a screen door and some fencing. I will post some more pictures as soon as we do!
