Oh. My. Gracious! How totally wonderful! I never in a million years would have thought to put all of these elements together, but you have created a masterpiece. I visit your blog for every post and love every one, but *this* one is extra special. TFS!!!

My sis and her husband recently added 12 hens to their little animal collection. For her birthday I got her 4 Americauna hens so she and my 9-y.o. neice can gather beautiful blue and green eggs together. So fun.
And what a beatiful little house.

oh my....LOVE....


I love this little Halloween house!
Good news about letting your chickens run around the yard is they will eat all of your bugs! My parents have chickens and they haven't had problems with ticks or chiggers since they got them!

Melissa That house is darling...there may be some scrap lifting going on! That house looks like the one that Papertrey sold last year. Is it? That is sooooo cute. I just bought that paper and had no idea what to do with I do! Thank you. P.S. Glad to hear the kittys and chicks are getting along. How fun...


I should have said....that the paper mache house looks just like the house that Paper Trey sells from last year. If you can't find the paper mache one you can always go to the Paper Trey site and buy their pattern and stamps.
