We have four chickens.
And they have been laying WONDERFULLY this past summer!
And have I told you that a fresh chicken egg tastes AMAZING?
I refrigerate them as soon as they lay them (washed of course)
but they really do taste delicious.
I'd been noticing that our red hen had been escaping the yard a lot!
(crawling under the delapidated fence)
Well, a few days ago Emily was strolling around the perimeter
of the fence to look for Red and just look at what she found.....
TWENTY eggs that girl had been laying outside of our backyard!!!!
I had to ditch them all....they were spoiled ~
Funny hen, she was sitting on them all when Emily found them!
More snapshots of sweet Clara being Clara ~
She's quite the ham you know!
I finally added a few fluffy pillows to the guest bed.
Do you see David's guitar still propped in the corner?
Since he left, the sweet boy hasn't been back!
I think he was SO ready to not live with his mom and dad....
but he'll return soon....
I have his grilling tools and that boy LOVES to grill out!
I found something neat this past weekend, so you know I have to share!
I went to w-mart to get the fluffy pillows I needed....queen sized and perfect to fill
the beautiful handmade pillowcases that my dear friend Ann Perry gave me!
They have long, gorgeous ruffles on the ends ~
Well, anyway, what I found was a travel pillow form that they have!
(in the bedding dept)
(in the bedding dept)
For only THREE BUCKS!
I had a sweet, quilted pillow sham with roses and inserted the travel pillow into one end,
then let the other half fold over the front ~
Yes, the folds are still there as I've had this sham for several years!
I found this sweet sham at Ross and just loved the fabric.
If you need an inexpensive pillow form that's about a third
of the size of a standard pillow, this is a great deal :)
More treasures in our guest room...
A sweet friend emailed me last week.
Debi told me she had a few sheets of ledger paper that she knew I'd love!
I thanked her dearly and returned her email with my address.
Look at what arrived this past weekend!!!
A sweet gift Debi knew I would love ~
Precious trims ~
Beautiful shells ~
Just look at how teeny tiny the ledger handwriting is!
Thank you so very much Debi ~ I absolutely LOVE it all!!!
On a last note...
I found one lone bloom of wisteria on our back fence ~
can you tell where it ended up?
It will be preserved for eternity!!!
This is the progress of it's pressing:
I sure hope the comment thing is fixed....
I so miss hearing from you guys!!!!!
Wishing you a wonderful fall Monday dear friends ~
hugs and love,
