Fall Quilts, Pie Safes and Baby Chicks

Hey Everyone! We just received several boxes in the mail...and the boxes were from several different hatcheries.  Here are a couple of the little baby chicks.  Silver Lace Wyandotte chicks...they are so cute...and we got lots of them, and several other breeds.

 On to our home...I decorated for fall in the kitchen and just had to take it all down because we are getting new flooring! Yay and boohoo.
************************************** I'm in the nesting mood...fall is my favorite season...but I will suffer for the flooring sake.  We have been remodeling and it has ended up TAKING LONGER 
than we could have ever imagined. 
The cabinets are painted...just waiting on knobs to go on them.  
I'm thrilled with it and ready for it TO BE OVER.  I've had china in boxes, fall decor in tubs, and kitchen chairs in the hallway, kitchen pots and pans in the nearby bathroom....yikes...
 I loved the cabinets so much we had the painter paint the pie safe too.  He stained it and distressed it and I'm very happy with the end result.

 Awww these little guys had to be put up....my cats were licking their chops just seeing them nearby!
 Fall is here and I'm so happy that it is!

Morning Debbie

Just popping by before heading to work. Love the color on your pie safe - can't wait to see the who she-bang.

Those cats must be pretty good to even be in the same house with the chicks:)

Enjoy your week!

The chicks are adorable!!
I know exactly how you were feeling...we are totally remodeling our kitchen and for the last few months, I've had a stove in my living room, boxes of kitchen stuff in the family room, and I've been washing dishes in the laundry room. We are finally getting to the end of this huge project and I am so ready for it to be over with too.
Beautiful quilts!! Love, love, love your pie safe!!

Those fluffy chicks are so cute!

Remodeling is always so stressful with all the mess and disorganization, but so worth it in the end.

Love the pie safe and decorations above it!
