I have been in a bit of a creative standstill. I think it is because I would rather be outside playing in my garden. Last weekend my hubby came home with a new suitcase for me ( I love old suitcases- I store tons of things in them and I have them in almost every room of my house- except the kitchen and bathroom ). The top was quite beat up, but I remembered seeing a project once where someone made a pet bed out of an old suitcase and I thought this would be the perfect time to try this out. Here is the suitcase with the top cut off and an old blanket thrown in there to see if my idea would work. Henry cat climbed right in and thinks it is great. I am going to put some feet on it, re-enforce the bottom with a piece of plywood and sew a pillow to match the suitcase color- stay tuned at the end of the week for the end results!
I also have some new "pets" to share with you. My hubby surprised me the other day when he came home from work with chickens! We had to get that new coop built fast- believe me.....you do not want chickens living in your home for too long. They do not smell very sweet. I am so anxious for fresh eggs- but they still have a bit of growing to do. They will eat out of my hand already- I am pretty happy about that! We won't be eating these hens- I am not a chicken killing and feather plucking kind of gal. Fresh eggs and chickens I can pet are just fine with me. Aren't they kinda cute, in a chicken sort of way?
This next picture is of our strawberries- and a rusted bed spring I dragged out of my Mom's trash and brought home with me. I'm going to plant a grapevine in front of it and let it get partially covered in vines. I know- sometimes I have strange ideas- but I have a vision here, trust me.
I'll leave you with some garden pictures- because that is where all my time is lately :) Have a great week!!!
