Never underestimate the love of a chicken.....

Hi there.. hope you all had a wonderful summer!!
Mine was perfect.. I made the decision to unplug store/blog/website to immerse myself in fun with the kiddies.. they sure do grow up fast.....!

Here is a pic of Zackary with his special friend Lola..

she thinks she's a human.. loves to sleep on our lap..

listen to Z play the keyboard..

play in a tree with Luke...

In order to help remind Lola that she really is a chicken.. we bought some new varieties.. 2 Barred Rock..4 Araucauna's ( they lay blue eggs!) and 2 Guinea Fowl ( just to confuse her).
Here she is examining the new arrivals ....

( I promise my house isn't really a hen house.. they looked a bit stressed and hot so I was cooling them down in the AC for a bit before they went out into the VERY hot Texan summer.

Lola thought they were awesome fun...for about 10 mins... then she decided it would be more fun to play with the knobs on Zackary's train set!
oh..chickens these days...
they just seem to want it all!
haha... glad to be back ..hope you all had a great summer!
Love , Helen xxxxxx


  1. AWWWW, HELEN! Those are ADORABLE photos! Hahaha, you really DO love birds! My goodness, aren't they pretty!

    So glad to hear you had a wonderful summer unplugged with the family. That's the way it should be.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work again! xoxoxo

  2. Hello Helen! How nice to see you emerging again! Hehee... And with so many lovely pictures too! Your boys are gorgeous, by the way, and that chicken..well, what can I say? You ARE the Bird Queen, so I suppose it's only natural that she would feel attached that way... (^_^) oxx

  3. Haha! Those chickens are a bit spoiled, aren't they? Look at your boys! They are so happy. I have been thinking of you and I saw you at Bella's. So glad to see you again. I tried to stay away during the summer but I kept drawing and since I did not know what to do with them, I posted them on my blog. Now I think I will try to ease blogging but wanted to stop by and see what you are up to and to say hello!


I love to read your comments, thank you xx
