Ruffled Feathers and Spilled Milk

Farming with ducks and dairy goats, chickens and children.

It happened to me.

I don’t know how it happened.

I really don’t.

After all, I’ve never owned a creamer pitcher shaped like a cow.

Or salt and pepper shakers shaped like geese.

I don’t have tissue box covers that look like barns.

Or a milk bucket for an umbrella stand.

My curtains do not have roosters on them.

And the stove does not have burner covers painted with frolicking sheep.

There is not a single tin sign advertising eggs or milk in my house.

I firmly believe you can live on a farm without having to dress up like a farm inside the house.  I mean, won’t people know it’s a farm when they have to swerve to avoid chickens in the driveway?

So how could this happen?


I didn’t notice when I found this cute little hen at the GW.

Or when I tucked that sweetie on the  shelf above the coat hooks.  Along with my favorite pics of the kids and their farm animals.

It never occurred to me when I ordered this funky wallpaper.

Can you see how cute that is?  Oh, it warms my heart just looking at it.

You’d think I would have known when I built this nest box to hang over the recycling bins  and hold the mail.

But, nope.

Not until a visitor pointed it out did I feel the full impact of what I had done.

When I decorated the hallway from the mudroom to the kitchen, I made a chicken room.


O. M. G.

It finally happened.

Now I am one of them.

So, go ahead.

Send me duck mailbox covers for my birthday.  Cows in Santa hats for Christmas.  A flock of wooden sheep for the mantle.  A goat soap dispenser.

But, be careful when you’re picking out an adorable pig potholder…….

It could happen to you next!

    Please don’t go there. I agree that the animals on the outside are enough. We get it that you have a farm everytime we drive up and get out and a goat greets us!!!
