Art into chickens????




Thank you to all my customers and my one collector!! The Studio Tour is was great fun, and I sold some paintings and cards.  With a commissioned painting sold  earlier in the year  I was able to donate $100 to Heifer International to go towards chickens for  families where a flock of chickens could really make a difference. I have pledged 10% of my art sales to Heifer this year and look forward to being able to send them lots more money in 2010.  I need to set up another team page as we have met the goal on the last one.  And, no, I haven't forgotten my wish to buy the water buffalo. It is just that since we have brought chickens into our lives here on Camano we are having such fun, learning some interesting things, and  looking forward to September and our first fresh eggs!! 

The poster girls are Bertha, the light Brahma, and Agnes, the Ameraucana.  Fb has photos of them as chicks along with the building of the ultimate in hen houses.  Yesterday John finished the window trim and we added the flower box and petunias along with a second trapeze for Agnes who likes to launch herself at the others.....yet to come..the fancy frosting- like trim, the roof, the cupala, hen weather vane..and of course, a birdhouse on the corner.
