Our New Chickens and Simple & Sweet Fridays #125

We have new members to our family.
Ameraucana Chickens.
A doctor we know was moving and needed 
to find a home for his two Ameraucana Chickens.
He just wanted to make sure they found a good home.
We have been wanting to raise chickens for some time now.
Reading lots of books and taking classes.
But, as you know there's nothing like a hands on experience.
We brought the chickens home last Saturday.
Maggie our Lab, was wondering,
 what was all the excitement about.
Stan and Justin moved the chickens and chicken coop 
into their new home. 
They seemed to adjust to their new surroundings easily.
 Carly fed them and they were very happy.
They were so entertaining.
So far, we are getting nothing done around the house.
We just love watching them.
I have a broken bird bath that works nicely for their food.
It won't tip over.
We have been getting fresh eggs daily and 
are looking forward to our new members 
being part of our family.
~Life is a wonderful thing~

~Crochet Tea Cup and Dried Flower Bouquets & Simple & Sweet Fridays~

I found this cute crochet tea cup in a gift shop.
If you crochet, I think it would be a sweet gift
 to make for someone.
When I saw it I had to buy it.
In the garden today I saw some
Queen Anne's Lace. It makes me think of lacy crochet.
So dainty and detailed.
Also the Lace Cap Hydrangea reminds me of crochet work too!
Soft and delicate.
I started cutting flowers to make some dried bouquets
for the house.
I took out some of my baskets from the storage shed.
The pink hydrangea in the front yard had plenty of blooms to cut.

Maybe I'll make another wreath for the front entry door.
I love seeing them all together.

~Rustic Buildings in Idaho~

I wanted to share with you some more photos of our trip to
 Ririe, Idaho.
The old buildings we saw had so much character and history.
We could just imagine what they looked like 100 years ago.
Taking a photograph made me feel I could stop time from the destruction taking place on the design of the church.
It was just beautiful.

Different shaped barns were everywhere.
Love the siding and ladder on this barn.



Most of the old barns we saw,
the roofs were almost gone.

Old ladders everywhere with plants growing around them.
It was so peaceful and quiet.

Just us and the land.
This was an old stagecoach stop.

They would switch out horses from Jackson to Idaho Falls.
Looking into the building you could just imagine the everyday excitement.

The roof inside was just spectacular! 
It was definitely unforgettable!
~Wildlife Everywhere~


The land seemed to go on forever.

Loved the Idaho potatoes!
It was a wonderful trip!
