Barn Decor

New decorations for the coop and gate. We may be a muddy mess, but we’re a cute muddy mess! 😂

A few of you have asked about where I found my gate roosters. It was one of those 3am finds on eBay. I was quite sure I had discovered a rare treasure! Luckily for all of you, it turns out, it is also available on Amazon for $19.99. 😂

Here’s the link: 😊

Happy Saturday!

Fence project – done!!!

It’s not perfect because I don’t weld, but it’s pretty gosh darn close, and certainly $1500 worth of close! 😁

Now on to the next project. I’m gonna use this 95 gallon galvanized water tank from the barn, and the damaged pieces of fence, and make a bigger baby chick brooder.

The littles have gotten SO big! They need more space. (Wait ’till I tell you the story which proves it!!! 😯 I’ll write it as soon as I finish this project. Let’s just say Madeleine proved she is truly a benevolent chick-sitter!) But it’s too soon, and too cold, to put them in the puppy play pen yet.

I’m gonna whip this up, then the bride and groom are coming over to make plans for wedding we’re having here next month. Yay!!! And then I really need to make lemon bars!

Mending Fences

My first project of the day: this broken fence.

Seven old cypress trees blew over in the last storm. Luckily, there wasn’t much damage, except for a section of this fence. I’ve already got a roll of this fencing, from some chicken projects I was working on, so I don’t even need a trip to the hardware store!

I may be a city girl, but I know my way around horse fencing and hog ties, and I’m not afraid of a little mud! (Take THAT, fence company who wanted thousands of dollars for the job!) 😁

How It All Started

On our first date, I told my husband-to-be that someday I wanted a house full of happy, loud children, a piano, horses, dogs, and chickens. By the way, I also still wanted season tickets to the theater, good yoga classes, and a French bakery nearby. A few months later, we were wandering past art galleries on a warm summer evening and saw this painting. When it turned up on my doorstep, I knew he was a keeper.
