we have A chicken....

Can you see her?

We have considered getting backyard chickens - just a small 
coop, but have decided it's not happening this year....
perhaps, next spring? We'll see.

In the meantime, I thought this sweet vintage
chicken would dress up our patio
nicely for the summer....

I found her at the Farm Chicks Antiques Show
in Spokane a few weeks ago...
I have to admit, I had trouble buying this year....
could have been me, but I am really over
the whole faux painting EVERYTHING 
trend.....{sorry to my antiques selling friends!}.
And I realize that creativity is hard, but
I did not see anything NEW.  Like I said,
could have been me.....

But I love my chicken......I asked for name
suggestions on Instagram {you can find me HERE}
  - Gertrude, Hattie, Wanda and
Nugget were all suggested....
So what do you think?

  1. I love your chicken! I keep wanting a coop with a few laying hens but my husband isn't quite as sure. But your type of chicken would definitely win him over : )

  2. My husband and I have an ongoing 'battle' about my desire for chickens... someday, maybe... I like yours! and I have to agree, I still like the look of painted furniture but now when I see it I often think to myself that in a few years there will be stripping and refinishing all over pinterest.

  3. I have two of that same chicken... nice and chippy just like yours! My real chickens are named Thelma & Louise (Araucanas), Lucy & Ethel (Rhode Island Reds) and Daisy, Duke that is (White Leghorn). I thought they were all good chicken names :) Have fun naming this one!


  4. we have chickens and love them. as to your quandry at the show, I felt the same way at a similar show. I think there is part of me that loves finding the junk in its pure form. I am finding more at garage sales, really dusty old flea markets where no one has heard of Pinterest, charity thrift stores... That is more fun. I guess I just don't want my junk already made-over, I want to make-it-over myself! Is that weird?

  5. Your backyard patio is beautiful, like a secret garden!! Your chicken is pretty fun too!


  6. I was just thinking yesterday
    that you hardly ever hear the
    name SHIRLEY anymore. Or
    how about GLADYS?

    I feel exactly as you do about
    the vintage shows these days.
    I don't feel motivated to buy
    any of it. Kind of the same old
    {yawn} same old. I skipped JB
    this year for that reason. I am
    more into junk and antique shops
    rather than the sales.....

    Happy Friday. Hope you have
    some great things on your weekend
