folksy for chickens and snowballs!

I was chuffed to bits when I got my mitts on this beautiful Oil painting “Folksy Chicken” by Karin Naylor. She is an amazing self-taught artist, painting with vibrant colours for an impressionistic style.

I won it in a giveaway at her blog rosemary lavander and thyme and unless you count a carton of grapefruit juice I’ve never won anything before! If you haven’t come across this awesome blog before you should hop on over now!

Meanwhile, down at littlepoppits we woke up to a blanket of snow. We don’t get much of the stuff here so before school the kids had to have a snowball fight! The chooks were not impressed and hid behind the trees, but the kids loved it!

Cute or what!

What do you reckon to this vintage picture, cute or what!

I found it whilst having a good old rummage around a charity shop. I had to have it coz it reminded me of my crazy chooks ‘n’ kids!

See chooks are only meant to have a little bit of corn in the after noon.

Well not in this gaff! it’s more like every time they see us, and if they can’t see us they peck on the door till we hand over the reddies!

Anyways, for under a tenner I bagged myself one sweet little picture for my home, and with just a little paint and distressing gave it a shabby-chic look that I love!

If you like vintage pictures take a look in your local charity/thrift shops and see what you can grab yourself!
