Do you remember that t.v. show? It's the one with Zsa Zsa Gabor playing a woman who moves to the farm with her husband but she's really more adept at shopping on 5th Avenue.
It's really not quite that bad around here but, I'm tellin' ya, I probably wouldn't have dreamed of owning chickens on my own. Sure, Martha Stewart does it but, you know, that's Martha Stewart. Luckily, my mom raised us with fine china, antiques, pretty dresses and ducks and goats and ponies and rabbits and hens and dogs and gold fish!
(We're all allergic to cats, sorry!)
I'm afraid my posts are a titch schizophrenic.
One moment, I'm blogging about lace table cloths and the next, you have turtles.
What can I say? I married Tom. He spent his summer on the farm that's been in his family for generations and generations (The King gave them the land) AND, I live in the country!
This will help to explain this post.
I forgot our lovely ladies' (10 Rhode Island Red Hens) birthdays, this week! I was going to toss them some fresh greens and apples. I was even thinking of making them some spaghetti (tasty worms!)
Better late than never.
Well, in their honor, here are some baby pics.
Happy Birthday Girls!
In celebration, I thought that I could share a video with you about the nobleness of chickens!
(Really, truly, it is worth it! Watch it to the end - it's not that long!)
almost in the same breath.....
I am linking, once again, to Tablescape Thursday at
and, Show and Tell Friday at
I am sharing one of my very favorite posts. It's the one where my men and I had our own private tea, one stormy evening, after the whirlwind Ladies' Tea for 50.
Dear Friends, I want you to know, that I will not always be linking to blog parties. It's quite a bit of fun for me to "talk and share" tablescapes, as it were, but it, also, feels a bit like having a lot of company over! =] It's nice to have friends over for a visit but very pleasant to have a nice quiet chat with "just us".
Now, if you've read all the way through this post. There is a punchline!
We are getting 18 new baby chicks this Friday.
Where are we going to put them????
