Chicken Tractor Yay ~

Good morning everyone ~ I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday ;-)

I have to share with you...something that I have always wanted... Chickens ~

Mr. Vintage took this to heart and we have ordered six peeps. But where would we keep them?  Well, Mr. Vintage did it again...he is building me a chicken tractor~!

He started today.  This little beauty will hold six chickens comfortably and the rail in the front will be covered with chicken wire.  That's their front yard.  This will be put on wheels so that we can move it around the yard and the chickens will not eat the grass until it's dirt. 

He's building it in the driveway and once finished, it will be moved to our back yard. 

Ofcourse, I am going to paint it and make it a little vintage barn for my chickens.  Organic eggs ~ yum ~!  We have done our homework and we do live in the country.  I have picked Plymouth Rocks for our chickens ~ they are pretty and look like this

I'll keep you posted ~

I'm so excited~!!! What exciting things have happened to you today?

I'm ready ~

I am sooooo ready ~

I want to play in the garden ;-)

I took a walk in the back yard, and yes...I did wear those boots ~  I do believe that my tulips are waking up from their winter slumber ~

And believe it or not, there is lettuce coming up in my vegetable garden from last year ~

I was so excited, I bought myself some of these

Has spring arrived where you are? 

I hope so ~

My new/old dresser ~

Happy Friday everyone ;-)

I thought I would share with you pictures of my new old dresser.  Mr. Vintage picked this dresser up at a yard sale for $25.00 and ofcourse, I fell in LOVE with it... It did not look like this before (I forgot to take pictures), but now that I added a coat of paint and shabbied her up ~ sigh ~ LOVE

I just love the mirror, the ginger breading and the shelf.  I picked up the oil lamps at a treasure hunt last year for $10.00.

Hey Mindy are you still  napping?  What are we going to do today?

I'm playing with my squirrel mommy ~ Later....

Have a wonderful day ~

(((Hugs))) xo
