A Few "Heart of Dixie" Chicks
Saturday...not always my day "off", but today is chick day at Scott Farms...and Bobby and I have been talking about having a few chickens for eggs. I mean, we live on a farm...and that is what we are supposed to do...everybody says we will "love it". So...here's to raising chickens. There is a really cute article (Chicks are for Kids) in the April/May issue ofMary Janes Farm magazine, a charming publication dedicated to the "farm girl" in all of us:) OK, now back to Scott Farms...I've included some photos in this post to let everyone know what you are missing...or what I have been missing. It is the greatest farm supply store, ever (and especially in our rural area)-stocking all sorts of animal feeds and supplies; flowers, plants (including herbs) and garden seeds; and all other kinds of necessities for farmers and everybody else. And, along with all the items for sale, the store is a kind of mini museum of sorts with displays of antique farm implements and signs. But today, they were selling chicks!!! And chicken feeders, and waterers, and feed...we bought it all. I think they will have more chicks, and maybe ducks, too, in May. We have our chicks "at home" now in our children's old rabbit pen...so for a few weeks, they should be fine. They will graduate to the "Pat House" that will become a cute little chicken coop after they grow a little. More on the story of the "Pat House" in a later blog. Now, Mack, if your store only had fabrics, and pillow forms, and sewing supplies:)
"Cottage and Cabin" is my collection of designs for your home and garden. I am a designer/seamstress, and I truly do what I love and love what I do. I enjoy all aspects of home decor, especially cottage style furnishings and designing window treatments and nurseries. As much as I love sewing, I also spend lots of time redesigning and painting old furniture and salvage pieces.
