Farm Chicks 2011

Hi Friends!

I’m here to share my own [somewhat limited] Farm Chick Experience.

it’s limited because i’m very attached to my booth…literally…although, i was very blessed to have my sister join me for the fun this year [thx. sis]

It truly was a great sale…better than ever!

♥loved the junk!

♥loved the people!

♥loved the sales!

I brought a little live chicken display that made it all the more fun! They are silkies…a ‘mom’ and her baby chick {farmchicks}. They were so, very CUTE!

I didn’t get a great picture of the full effect but they were contained w/in a rusty-wired skirt attached to a wire dress form.

…my favorite part?…the little cuties that would gather ’round!

I’m already looking forward to next year’s Farm Chick fun!

  1. Cute stuff as usual, Elaine! Luv the chicks, we had chickens for quite awhile…till I wanted my backyard back! 🙂 We called them “The Ladies”, 2 were basic layers, & the other 2 were bantams. We loved the eggs, & they were really pets to my girls, but I think we’re all happier that they’re on a real farm now. 🙂 Also, you’d love my lil Saturday Market here in McMinnville..it’s held yearlong in a restored barn..I’ll eventually take some of my stuff down there to sell, but in the meantime I get inspired everytime I see your posts!

  4. Great pictures . . . .almost makes me want to be there. I think I’m better off where I am, but Dad and I are proud of what you are doing. He always wants to know the details.

  5. I loved your booth except the chickens I could do without. I’m probably the only one. I don’t know why, but it was hard for me to see them out of their habitat and in a noisy and overly crowded place.

  7. Hi Elaine! Loved your little chicks…very sweet! We are trying to work the one day workshop into our calendar, I’ll let you know soon. I hope you got a little rest this past week, I got to have 2 whole days of rest! I’m a happier person when I’m rested 😉 See you soon.

    • Thanks, Gladys. It was a fun weekend. I hope that you can work it out to come on the July 30th…It’s really going to be a great day. I have an idea for Oliver’s charm. I’ll send you a note on FB.
