Chickens and Roses ~

Hello ~ I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend ~

Today was a really fun day ~ I started out by fluffing my nest ~ then Mr. Vintage and I had coffee in the back yard ~

Yes my friends, we had coffee with the chickens ~

We love to let the chickens out in the yard and watch them.  They are very comical

Rosie is very curious and loves to peck and scratch ~

What are you girls doing in my garden?

This is Gabby ~ she loves to cluck and squawk ~

I have always wanted a milk bottle carrier and I finally found one on Etsy and guess What?  ~ she arrived today ~

I just love it on my farmhouse table ~ sigh ~

After our coffee with the chickens, Mr. Vintage and I went grocery shopping...on the way he stopped at a flower shop and we went in.  Yes, my friends he did, he did, he bought me roses ~ just for me ~

Aren't they beautiful?  I split them up and put the creamy ones in the kitchen and the pink ones in the living room ~
The house smells heavenly ~

Thank you Mr. Vintage ~ It's not even my birthday, our anniversary ~ nothing ~ but he said I was worth it.  I love you Mr. Vintage ~

Tonight I am making lamb chops, garlic mashed potatoes and fresh veggies.  ~mmmmm~ can't wait

How is your day going?

Can't wait to hear



  1. What beautiful roses! Isn't it nice to get something just because you're you? Great going, Mr V! Love the chickens - so cute! I have a couple of milk bottle holders with 4 openings. I love them too! So pretty with flowers or candles in them. Thank you for sharing and enjoy the rest of your weekend! Hugs, Leena

  2. How sweet and thoughtful of Mr. Vintage! Isn't it wonderful to receive flowers from hubby for no reason other than he loves you!

  3. I love the coloring of your chicken Gabby. I have a bottle carrier too that I got on Etsy that is one of my most cherished possessions. You will enjoy changing it up through every season. Happy Sunday!

  4. I would love to take a little stroll around your kitchen.
    I think the milk bottle holder is adorable...perfect for bottles and flowers.
    Fresh flowers in the house are just so "cheery"

  5. That is so sweet of your husband to buy you the roses!!

    I like your bottle carrier. Excellent idea to use for your flowers!!!

  6. That's a lovely thing for Mr Vintage to do they are beautiful ! I do like your photos of the girls . They are comical , When I was on our hobby farm my mum and I would sit with our cup of tea either in the morning or early evening and watch the chickens and would commentary funny skits of what they might be saying , hey we were farmers not much entertainment other then our animals lol ! Today we just enjoyed a cool day in our back yard puttering and watching nature. I did a post of my walk in I took in the field. Just a simple country life for us ! Have a great day !

  7. The white roses are sooooooo pretty. How sweet.
    Hope your Sunday is just as wonderful!

  8. Sounds like a fabulous day! Your chickens are beautiful.I had a garage sale and then spent as much as I made on some fabulous treasures and amazing deals.I got depression glass pink and green and also vintage bottles for less then a buck each.Then off to the local Fair it was a long late day and night but was worth it~Cheers Kim xox

  9. Oh gosh, I just had to read this as I sit here with a chicken roasting in the oven!!! They are so cute!

    I love your flowers, so beautiful!

  10. Awww, I've always wanted chickens and I've heard ducks are a lot of fun too. Not going to happen for me until after retirement. Your chickens are gorgeous - please tell me they are pets, even for eggs maybe, but that's it right? Love the beautiful roses hubby got for you :)

  11. Oh how I wish the two of you lived close by so that we all could have dinner together! You two are so cute and sweet. You are so lucky to have chickens. Aren't they wonderful??? I have come to love my neighbor's chickens so. They do all have distinctive personalities and are a delight. I am so happy that I learned that. Lots of love to you both!

    Big Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  12. Who knew that chickens would all have their own personalities... aren't they fun to watch?! We do the same thing- imagine the conversation they are having. LOL!
    beautiful roses! have a great week!
