Weekend Finds

 
 
Sometimes you manage to find yourself in the right place at the right time and find that certain something you have wanted for the right price. Such was the case this weekend.
 
My side porch needed a hutch, or so I thought, but I think it needs a bed swing too. I had looked hoping to find one this past winter with no luck. Saturday I found one, it is need of a little love, the price was right and I thought it was perfect!
 

I am thinking a lovely shade of green, what do you think?
 

We had a new addition to the flock this morning. I heard chirping coming from the incubator and this little one had just arrived! This is Little Peep's chick! There are 3 other eggs, but no noise or pips yet.
 
 
We are expected to have nasty weather today, I hear the thunder rumbling as I type this and we are under a tornado watch. Hope that you are safe and dry today! Hope this bad weather doesn't interfere with the internet connection today, I need to visit my blog pals!

  1. Hi Melanie! OH, I love your little hutch and guess what? I have the exact one in my breakfast room and painted it a soft Jadeite green. But I just restained the maple top of the bottom half and love how it turned out! It's one my favorite play toys! Look at that sweet little chick. I'm sure this delights you - sure does me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

    1. Shelia, I have tried to remember where I saw one like this one! Thank you for reminding me! Yes, you would like the idea of painting if green then!

      Yes, the chick does delight me! I wondered if any of the 3 we had in the incubator would hatch! Maybe another one will. Thanks Shelia and thanks for visiting!

  3. Hi Melanie, Your hutch is darling and like Shelia I had the exact same one handed down from my mother. It was with me for years till I had to sell her as we moved and needed to lighten the load. I will always love the memory of that sweet little hutch. You have a treasure and it will be gorgeous when you paint it.
    Darling little chick addition to the family. How precious held with love in your hand.

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind comment. Blessings to you and be safe in the storms. We had them a few days ago.
    Have a great week and fun painting.
    Hugs

    1. That is awesome that you have a memory of a hutch like the one that I have just picked out! I really thought that it was a great piece and was delighted to find it, I thought that it was a treasure too!

      That little chick was only a few hours old when that picture was taken! They are so sweet when they are little like that!

      We had a good bit of rain, a little wind and distant thunder, that was all thank goodness! Thank you for the stay safe wishes!! Spring storms can be so dangerous! Thank you Celeste for visiting!
