Spring Chicken

So I have a blog friend that is a hooker. A hooker of rugs of course. I have been following Kim at her blog Millie’s Mats for a long time. I won a giveaway on her blog a few years back, a lovely autumn leaf mat that sits on my coffee table year round. Recently she was hooking a chicken that began to take on a life of its own for me. Chicky Kim was calling her, giving her life don’t you know. I am doing a new room that is supposed to be my room for a little me time away from the TV and to just be. I decided I wanted Miss Chicky, who evolved into a pillow. I had ordered two chairs (had to be two chairs cause someBODY in the house was not to be denied) back in November which were finally delivered last week and I emailed Kim a shot of the chairs to see if Miss Chicky would do to roost in the new room. It was a go! And so I got mail.DSC_1358 - Copy

Miss Chicky came flat and I stuffed her and she came to roost in the new room which is still in transition. A sweet little blue dishcloth made by Kim was included cause she just does thoughtful nice things like that.

My Spring Chicken, Miss Chicky thanks to Kim!

She is just the cutest, Miss Chicky. Kim too! Visit Kim’s blog Millie’s Mats, she features Rug Hooking and Everyday Life. She has a link to her Etsy shop where she sells her lovely beautiful quality hooked rugs.

Room in the process of trying to find its personality, its individuality, its Pix-ness. I am planning on putting up some of my barn shots and little birds of all kinds will probably find their way to this room. The room does snoop out into the back woods and flowerbed that is full of birds and their feathery goings on. You might notice that Iris and Flo had to get all up in the redo. Those chairs keep changing colors, couldn’t be the picture taker. The chairs are true to color in the middle shot. More red but kinda leaning towards cranberry.. 🙂

Good thing I didn’t title this Wordless Wednesday!

  1. What cheerful a chicky that is. I like them big comfy chairs too. Dreamy!
    I figure your room will be a pleasant and fun place to relax and enjoy. I look forward to your updates. 🙂


  2. love Chicky!

    Making your own nest, with Flo and Iris just to start–FABULOUS! I can’t wait to see the evolution, Pix. Some of us just need to have our own space–frees the mind…. and that you can see the wildlife and gardens… oh so soothing and happy-making. Um, will you have your very own wine refrigerator? >:-D


    1. Got one of those on the sun porch at the opposite end of the house! It will be good for me to haul my butt out of the chair and walk down the hall to the end of the sun porch for a glass of wine. Burn some calories don’t ya know.. 😀


  3. I’m so glad Miss Chicky has settled in. She looks very comfortable in that nice big chair. Thank you for giving her a good home 🙂 Just reading some of your comments – I vote yes to the wine fridge in the new room.


  4. Room in the process of trying to find its personality, its individuality, its Pix-ness. It’s Pix-ness: I love that! I’m sure it will be wonderful – you’ll have to share pictures when it’s all complete! Love Miss Chicky!


  5. I love Miss Chicky! Annnnd she looks so comfortable in them there Cranberry coloured chairs! A perfect place to snuggle up and watch the birdies me thinks!


  6. Way to go Pix! Everyone needs a room of their own, or at least a space in which to have alone time. Yippee! Really like your cute new pillow sitting on that big ol’ comfy red chair. Margie


  7. Good evening Pix, Little Chickie looks right at home in your soft, comfy, plush, easy chair…I have a little Fall mat from Kim too, which I just love… I can’t wait to get a glimpse of your room re-do once complete. Is that green I see out your window? Really? I am so tired of white I could cry….Happy Spring to you and CH, from cold snowy Maine, Julie.


  8. I love it. I enjoy seeing homes that have personalities–usually a good sign that the owners do as well. And I loved the opening lines of this post.


Just say "hey"! Say more if you want, that's good too :)
