Hello and welcome to my blog. If you like flowers and gardens, housey stuff, food and banter, then this is the place for you. I am a decorative artist, florist and maker of things. I sell painted furniture, plants and crafts, through a
local retail shop, in my native Ireland, and wedding flowers from home. I am married to a lovely patient man and have a smashing little girl. I blog for the fun of it. Thank you for listening.
One day, when I get my house in the country, I would like some chickens to go with it. We did try to have them where we live now, but it didn't work out as we have limited space and it meant we had to clean out their run every night, and boy do they make a lot of mess. I did love hearing the little cluck cluck noises they made, and they are so nosey and comical and just love company.
As for the lovely fresh eggs, they make my cakes so yellow, and taste truly wonderful. So, we will definitely have chickens again. I came across this most heavenly henhouse in American Country Living magazine http://www.countryliving.com/ . Wouldn't this just be the 'bee's knee's'?
I don't know why exactly, as I am from a city, but my heart has always been in the country. I just feel more at home and relaxed with rolling hills and green fields all around me. We live in a semi-rural area at the moment, which suits for now, for my daughters schooling and my husbands work, but in the future we would like somewhere a little more remote.
Isn't this just hilarious?
This is just too much fun, I can just see myself with my little basket off to make blueberry pancakes for breakfast. Anyone like to join me?
I won't be about for a few days as we are off to the seaside, but I wish you all a very productive and happy week.
