No News 

Not much happening around here – cold and rainy!  Just a week ago Connie and I were at Junk Bonanza and this week the cupboards have found a new home.


And the chicks are getting so BIG!


See that “naked neck”?  I just love these chicks!

    Love watching your chicks grow! And…you find the best “junk”! I’ve been busy helping my mom and sister get both of their homes ready for sale, so I’ve missed my thrifty trips! My sister’s realtor said I should be a professional stager of homes ready for sale! Ha! Today my back is killing me. Earlier this week, after cleaning sorting, tossing etc., I was in bed by nine, I think tonight might be a repeat! Seven hours of closet cleaning…oh my!

    Oh, my, how fast the little chickies are growing!! You must be feeding them well, Mary!! The little “naked neck” is always front & center!! Love the new “plant stands!!” They look great!!
    Wish I had the energy Carol has for cleaning, sorting, tossing, etc. The tossing in particular!! Ha!

    Those naked neck chickens are strange. What do they look like when they grow up. The furniture pieces look wonderful in front of the window.
    Love them.

    I love seeing all of your “updates”. The plants look great, love the cabinets, and you have a great view. Those chicks are getting huge! Love watching them grow up.

      Terry – this is a specific breed of chicken called a turken – very healthy and intended to look like this.

    That poor chick with the “naked neck” looks like she was in a fight and lost! I can’t wait until they are all grown and we can see how they look.

    Mary….I’m watching the football “draft”. Had to see who the RAIDERS and 49ers selected.
    How your chicks have grown…..Turken…how cute the flock are.
    So nice to see where you set the two distressed cabinets from Junk Bonanza. All your plants look wonderful atop the two.
    Did you get the newly painted bedroom all put back together?
    Thanks for sharing…..I still wish you had gotten that sign.

    Hi Mary. I grew up having chickens at home and yes, we had turkens, didn’t really like them because of their exposed skin. Silly me. We used to call them “pescuezos pelados” in Spanish or bare necks.

    I am tired of the rain, but I know it will be good for the flowers. Your plants are looking nice. Felicia

    Sweet little cupboards and they look great in your home! Thank you for the information about the chickens. They look like they are happy and well together.

    Take care.

    Love those cabinets and yes you do find the best stuff. My sister and her friend went to Nashville, Tn last weekend to the Country Living show and they found nothing!! No antiques, or good junk. They were very disappointed. Paula in KY

      Paula – I hate to hear that about the Country Living Fair because I have really enjoyed the Columbus fair in the past!

    Yes, your chicks are very cute, but what I absolutely love are your new cupboards!

    Just a silly question…..when you purchase these well worn items and put them to good use in your home, what do you use to “clean” off the years of dirt from them before putting them to good use? I have an old Singer cabinet in my garage that I want to use but the years of dirt are keeping me from doing it and I don’t want to scrub it or use anything on it that will harm the surface. Any suggestions? Thanks!
