Sunday Afternoon: Meeting Lynne

Earlier today we got to meet Lynne. She had sent us a message on Facebook letting us know she would be in the area and so she would like to pick up a sign rather than having it mailed. Of course we welcomed the idea since we rarely get to meet anyone in person, but we had no idea how special it would be! Lynne is from Oregon! Can you believe that?

Find Your Chicken Coop

I have a weird amount of bad stories involving birds. I went on a tour in Jamaica as a kid and got bit by an exotic bird.

Preparing for spring, AND baby!

We are officially in the new year and we are getting ready for LOTS of changes. For the first time ever we created a seasonal calendar for the business. What does that mean? We have new products that will be released throughout the year, some of which will only be available for a few months. We are ready to get into a mode where we always have new things to show you rather than having the same inventory available year after year. We cannot wait to show you all the  new products we have in the works! We are also...

Looking Back on 2017

This is the last blog of the year. How crazy is that!? I know I have been saying it for weeks now but time has been flying by and this whole year has been a blur. I wanted to take a moment to share a few highlights of our year, and I hope to hear about yours in the comments. No matter what happens throughout the year we can always look back on the good and the bad and use that to push ourselves into a new and even better year :) March- We bought our house AND adopted Macy!...
