Glampin’ with Chicks and a Bichon

sotf 011 

It was a super hot weekend with nice cool nights, lots of fancy ‘Sisters on the Fly’, trailers, chicks (as in my girls) and one male…my Bichon, Dash.  Here’s some butts of the first arrivals….

This beauty belongs to Bonnie…love that paint job!

 sotf 016  Perfect weather…ok, a bit too hot…high 80’s…maybe even 90, but cool enough for fires in the evenings.

My girls did their regular ‘walkabout’ while we sat in the yard with snacks and conversation….with Dash getting undivided attention from six women.

Sunrises and sunsets were spectacular, as they can be this time of year.

A light breakfast in the Chicken Mansion, each morning to the cackle of my hens, Eleanor Roosevelt, Amelia Earhart and Rosa Parks…leaving me fresh eggs, each morning.

And to the left in this picture, is the Chicken Whisperer, Heather, who knows how to mesmerize my girls….

This shiny spectacular trailer is Denise’s….a real gem!

     sotf 032  Isn’t this the cutest…and so clever…just two towels, one forming the bottom of the apron, one half the other a pocket and the other half the bib.

And this adorable Scotty with a Potty, belongs to Grace and it’s sporting a new chair….Dash loved it.

We went garage salin’ on Saturday all day….six gals, one large pickup truck and our official driver, Heather….this was our haul!!!  Can you believe it?  Do we know how to have fun, or what?

Needless to say we all slept well…that night!

  1. More pictures please!! OH! what a super time you all had and what a haul!! I see a tray! I am nuts for trays, I collect the silver aluminum ones...well did collect. I have so many...but... can always use another one if I dont have that particular style. The old timers called them the "poorman's silver".

    Looks like a good time was had by all and that is perfect service from the girls, Fresh Eggs for breakfast. Cant beat that service, talk about spoiling the guest.

    Beautiful sunset.

  2. Actually, I didn't serve eggs but maybe next time when I have enough. Eleanor is still not ready.

    I am the owner of the silver tray but Heather got the silver is fab!
