The "Farm" is growing

I have been missing from blogland for a few weeks now. It seems like every fun thing I've done I've forgotten to bring my camera along. I spent yesterday taking a few photos of the "growings" around our house. Let me preface this post by telling a little about myself. I graduated from college with a degree in fashion merchandising and dreams of working in a big city. I interviewed in NY, Boston and Atlanta. I moved back to my smallish hometown temporarily (not so much) and ended up never leaving the area. In fact, I moved 20 minutes farther away from "the hub". I had always thought I'd be a city girl in the fashion world. Well, life and circumstances change but my friends and I never thought there would be a day when I would be thrilled that my Mother's day gifts would be a beautiful pot of flowers (see above) and four baby chicks!! Well, that day is has arrived and I have to say, I love the way my goals have changed.
So ... two days ago were a big day here on the farm (not really a farm but close). One of our hens hatched four little chicks. It was very exciting!! Then yesterday, one of the eggs we moved to an incubator hatched. My boys have had such a wonderful experience with all of these goings on.

Here are a few of the chicks

These are my "designer" chicks I got as a gift. I just love their feather "hats".

Our puppy is growing like a weed and has brought such joy to our house. She needs a few lessons in sleeping like a lady though!!

I have been working too ... in between all of the activity. I love the style of this dresser. Vintage pieces have such beautiful detailing.

Thanks for visiting ... I do have lots of new goodies listed on my site. Stop by and take a peek if you have a minute.
