palais des poulets

I went and picked up a chicken coop this weekend. And then I ordered 25 day old baby chicks. I’m not quite sure what I’m getting myself into, but I think it should be fun! They won’t be arriving until sometime the week of September 25, which is good, because I still have a lot to do. I cleaned off the coop, so I’ll be able to paint it next weekend. I also need to build some nesting boxes and put in a pole for them to roost. I’m not showing any before pictures until I can show some after pictures too. It’s just too ugly right now.

I packed up Lou, and she’s on her way to Washington:
Her new owner’s name starts with an ‘M’, so I added a glittery letter.

I wanted to make more monsters this weekend, but I started working on an outfit for my sock monkey, and didn’t have time for anything else:
Since she’s still a work in progress I’m not going to worry about the blurry picture, when she’s all done I’ll try a little harder to take some clear pictures. I think I will be adding her to the shop. Aren’t her puffed sleeves cute? And her little handkerchief apron? I didn’t get her little purple-ruffled petticoat in the picture, but it’s cute too.

My dad was attacked by a Chinese catfish. Yikes! He’s okay though.


  1. I’m actually getting some day old chicks tomorrow. I thought it would be fun for my kids to care for them for a few weeks and then they will go to our friends farm. To hopefully lives a long and happy life pecking at grubs and laying eggs. I will hopefully post some pics tomorrow if you want to check in

  2. She’s the best dressed sock monkey ever!! So cute! The people behind us have chickens – they’re really pretty and the eggs they lay are so good and really beautiful colors!! Can’t wait to see pics of the chickies!! I hope your dad is doing ok- yikes is right!!

  3. Our neighbor has three chickens and they are so fun to have in the neighborhood. I hope you enjoy yours!

say something nice...
