I love old doors...  as you would be able to tell coming to my house. There is so much you can do with doors, both indoors and out.   Some of these pictures are taken at The Wade Creek House and the rest are ideas of others...    If you want an old door, you will find them here.

See... such great things to do with old doors.

Our baby chicks are going great and now have names.... Betty & Willa.  Pam, one of the girls that grew up in the house that is now The Wade Creek House, reminded me that her parents names were Betty and Will.  My great niece Alaina had said separately that she liked Willa as one of her name choices.  So after Pam reminded me about her parents names, the fit was perfect.  Thank you Pam and Alaina!  I hope they stay true to their names... don't need any more roosters!

Since you know I love chickens have you heard about our CHICKEN CHAT & COOP TOUR? 

Mark your calendar for the second Saturday in April, this year April 12.  First you come to The Wade Creek House and listen to the experts as they tell us all there is to know about raising these wonderful backyard birds.  Then buy tickets for the coop tour which takes you in town, out of town, and around town to view many different types of coops.   You will get to meet the owners,  be able to ask questions and it is just a wonderful day.  And all for a good cause - our local 4H kids.  If you have a coop you would like to share, please let us know by giving us a call!

Happiness never decreases by being shared.

2014 - a time of new beginnings.  Here at The Wade Creek House we are into new beginnings too... of a different sort.... and two of them!  Maybe I should start at the beginning and try to make it short.


Our buff orpington hens are a broody breed of chicken.  Buttercup made herself a little nest in the corner of the chicken house and sat on her eggs and many other hens eggs. You see other hens will contribute to the nest daily so soon she is sitting on lots of eggs.  The chickens have a great space and I don't want more chickens so every Saturday, I would pick Buttercup up and remove all the eggs.  It takes 21 days to make a chick so obviously I missed an egg or two as last Saturday, I did the same, only this time I heard peep, peep, peep.  I looked down and an egg was beginning to crack.  What the.....!!  Once hearing that I put her back on the nest and left her alone.  Went in later and the other buff Binky was sitting on the nest with her.  Two eggs hatched, we have two baby chicks and two happy mamas.  Hard to get a picture because whenever the door opens they run underneath the moms.  Stop by for a peek.  NOW WE HAVE TO NAME THEM.... ANY SUGGESTIONS?  I just hope we don't get any more Ruby's that turn into roosters named Red.  The red of the picture is the heat lamp & my camera in the wrong setting..


Expect the unexpected.....
