Living a simple life in a cottage by the sea.

This and That


"And since all this loveliness can not be Heaven,
I know in my heart it is June."
~  Abba Woolson 

I'd like you to meet my favorite new chick Emma.  We are keeping 9 out of the 27 chicks so now we have a grand total of 14 chickens.
  • Lovely outfit I know, I just returned from my morning walk.


All the baby chicks are getting so big.  I haven't got names for all of them yet.


The bigger girls, Charlotte, Buttercup, Miss Pittypat, Penelope and Lizzy.

Ok, enough chicken talk...

We have a busy week.  My husband has his knee replacement surgery Tuesday.  I'm planning on keeping meals light and simple.  I hope to paint the new chicken coop ( in the same pink as our cottage),  as well as gather some items for  the thrift store.

I've been enjoying these lovely Summer days ( I know it just officially started, but it has felt like summer for awhile now).

I've been playing with some old hankies, thinking of making a small quilt.
 
Pretty new lacy top I picked up for a song!
 
Lovely new lipstick from LancĂ´me called Roses in Love.  After years of using drugstore brands I finally decided to treat myself to the good stuff.  What a difference.  I've always gone for department store lipsticks, mainly because I can try before I buy. What's the use of buying one in a package only to find it turns your lips a funny color, or don't you care for the scent or feel?  I've now upgraded to a nice moisturizer, eye cream and pressed powder, since I don't use foundation or eye makeup.  I'll be 53 in August so I thought it was about time to start caring for my skin!


Hope you all have a lovely week.
