|My goal yesterday was to complete some Etsy orders for my bottles.|
I have boxes of old bottles just like this that need to be cleaned.
While I was doing that , I came across a petrified mouse inside one of the big blue bottles!
I don't know who was more "petrified"~ HIM or ME!
Even though he was dead......long dead , poor little thing~ it scared the wits outta me!
He got flushed but not after a few words about his life and legacy.

|Well today was a FIRST in our JUNKIN HISTORY!|
We bought a BOAT!
A white chippy VINTAGE 1951 wooden Sunfish Sailboat!!
I am all but crazy over this thing!
Scratch that.....I am totally crazy over it!
This is exactly how it was when we pulled up to it.
I hopped out of the truck and in less time than it takes to say
Chilly Chilly Chick Chick (previous post)
we were inside payin the man!
She is 13 feet long with fabulous chippy white paint over blue paint~ and a beautiful "you can't get it from a can"
We have already taken it up to the High Point showroom (also a previous post)and now all I have to do is figure out how to display her!
Got any good ideas?? One option is to hang it from the ceiling.
I am so excited to get this cuz it's something different and I have never seen one before~ let alone in my booth!
This should be fun~ stay tuned!!

|People have asked me why I work so hard.|
This is the reason.
Someday I want to rescue a house that needs me as much as I need it.
Gosh how I wish this was the one.
Have you ever wanted to rescue a house?

|These are recent photos that show how big she has grown!|
She loves her chicken crumbles.
|She hasn't stated laying yet but I am getting excited!|
|Here's where she goes from your average barnyard chicken to Miss Smarty pants:|
she has figured out which window is the bedroom window and will sit on the sill til I get up to feed her!
|This is what I see when I open the blinds in the morning. She gets up around 6:30 am and hops down from her high perch where she roosts all night.|
|She isn't loud or noisy , just patiently waits to get some crumbles and cut up peaches.|
She LOVES peaches!!
