~Chicken Fun, New Furniture, & Just For Fun GIVEAWAY~

Good morning!!!!
First off I have a small giveaway!
1 bottles of Smooch Spritz & some Dew Drops from Robins Nest
Just because I have not done a giveaway in a while
I thought it might push me to get crafty today LOL
♥ Giving stuff away always makes me smile! ♥
Jade
and Amber
Not bad right?? Fun goodies! Maybe 18.00-20.00 worth :)
Worth checking out anyways!
So leave a comment and I will randomly choose a winner
on Sunday. Be a follower and spread the word.
Everyone who mentions your name gives you an extra entry!
Easy Peasy beautiful crafty fun~

Ok on to the chicken FUN~
It's an exciting day in the Hobbs home,
we went last night to buy a NEW Chicken Feeder! LOL
Oh the joy and excitement!

We began with a small red one for the babies
and sort of forgot we would need a larger one for grown chickens.
Finally we broke down and paid for one last night.
It was quite the stir in our house...(how boring are we? LOL)
When I went out to get a shot of it one of my favorite little chickens
was just standing there, I swear she asked me to take her picture!
Maybe she was saying "I am ready for my close up now"
At any rate, usually she hides so I was pleased to see her out.
Also I got this girl but she is WILD I mean WILD
of course they never peck or anything but if you try to hold
this one she flips out flapping and making a fuss.

Another fun event yesterday (which is why I did not craft at all)
We had new furniture come!
It is a HUGE step for us because when we packed up and left Oregon
we had new furniture and everything was set.
We sold everything and moved 3300 miles away.
It has been a long journey but it finally feels like we are getting back to normal
I even dug out and old heavy mirror I am going to paint this week!
Oh and I have my reading corner again *YEA*
I detest the pillows but the couches are ok, we bought
them without knowing the true color because they did not
have a swatch. They are darker than the picture shows but I am
sure I can spruce it up!

That's it for me today, be sure to enter the GIVEAWAY!
~Happy Friday~
~Pinky~

Love the idea of having a reading corner. Hmmm, what can I sell, give away or get to grow up and leave so that I can have a reading corner, will probably also have to be in my imaginary craft room.

Sounds like you have had a busy week and need the reading corner. I did not like the pillows that came with our couch either so I went and bought fabric and covered them and added some nice trim, they look great now, if I do say so myself:) Have a great weekend.

Kelly Sas said...

That chicken feeder is like the ones all the farmers had where I grew up. Sometimes it doesn't pay to improve on the good old fashioned ways! Thanks for more chicken pics. Enjoy your new furniture and I can't wait to see what you come up with for new pillows - cuz I know you will!

Lesley from WI said...

Loving the chickens and how excited you are over the chicken feeder. The furniture is great and as I am looking at the photos, I was thinking how I loved the pillows. Then I read right below that you detest them and that put a big smile on my face. Oh well, I think they look great!!

Cassie said...

I totally need chickens! I love your new furniture. When we moved back to Kansas City from California, we did the same thing. It was so much easier to sell everything than to try and pack it up.
Have a great weekend!!!
=)

Lindsay said...

Your reading corner looks great! Thanks for sharing about the new chicken feeder! They are so cute!

Melissa D. said...

Oh I hope I win :). I've never used the spray or the dew drops before.

Kelly Massman said...

With your sewing ability, I'm sure you can change those pillows in a jiff if you don't like them. I think they color is bold and should be fun!
Anyway, thanks for a chance to win!

Vicki said...

Thanks for the chicken pictures - and a new feeder is exciting. Glad you got a reading corner - was going to say your reading corner but if it's like my house, once I put in the chair, ottoman and lamp, my grandson took it over. New furniture is always so much fun and I'm sure you will create something to give it your touch.

Flamenco92627 said...

Hi Pinky! Thanks for the great giveaway. I have never tried either and would love to give them a go. I love your new furniture-that is the same color as ours, but we left have them too close to the window and years later the backs are faded. :( Take care and have fun crafting.

Brenda said...

I love the color of your furniture.

catnap said...

I'd love to try this. Ironically, I was at a B&B earlier this week and at breakfast we got to talking about the pros and cons of raising chickens in a residential area and whether the city code should be changed to allow it. I wish you'd been there to explain to us how you do it. Some people were against it (roosters crowing, waste smell), but I thought it should be allowed (I being someone who knows nothing about raising chickens, lol).

Deanne said...

love the chickens! I would love to own some....maybe someday :)Thanks for sharing!
