Oh What A Beautiful Day

We had a beautiful day today.  The sun was out and the birds were singing, the sky was a beautiful blue and NO SNOW OR COLD!!!  Hallelujah.  The air was so nice and fresh and crisp.

I did lots of cleaning today and have lots more to do.  I think it is called spring fever.  I always feel so good whenever everything is clean.  If it would only stay that way.

I have a few new things to show you.  First off, I ordered a sign from Kath  and it is great. She does such great work.100_1201

Thank you Kath.  Funny thing about this, I received it last Saturday and hung it up in my kitchen and didn’t tell my hubby about it.  He just noticed it today.  He said he noticed it in the middle of the week when I asked him about it.

Also, I found the rugs to go on the new kitchen floor.  They go so well with everything that I have in my kitchen. They are black so I will have to vacuum more than I do because they show everything and when we come in from  outside and have dead grass on our shoes, it really shows up.



This is why I bought rugs with chickens on them.  I have many chickens.  A friend of mine gave me the bakers rack several years ago and I am always doing different things on it.  I have my chickens on here for now, but don’t know for how long.  This is not near all I have but I don’t need all of them out 100_1196

or it would be too cluttered.

I hope each and everyone of you have a good Sunday.  Until next time -

Hugs -

I love the sign and the rugs they look really good. That is funny about your husband. I think I could move an entire room around and Jeff wouldn't!

Hi Maxine!....I'm glad you enjoyed the day and yes it does feel good to get things clean! Love the sign from Kath, I have a couple of her things so I know how lovely they are. Your room looks wonderful! It has taken my husband months to notice something's different so it's easy to sneak things in, ha! Have a great Sunday!

Love your rugs!

I really like your sign and your chicken/rooster collection looks great on your baker's rack.
My rugs have a black background too, so I know what you mean about vacuuming often...especially with light colored pets!
Have a nice day.
Sunny :)

Your rugs are perfectly wonderful and the bakers rack makes a nice roost for those chickens.
