I'm Just Saying

While making the bed this morning, I turned on the TV because I realized Martha Stewart would be on. I thought that I might glean some Easter crafts from Martha. Her craftiness intimidates me, I mean really, is anyone that good? Anyway, back to the story, as the show was going to commercial, they showed a basket of eggs her chickens had lain. They were all colors and looked real pretty. I thought, "I can do that, it can't take much brain power to put some eggs in a basket or bowl!" So I went to the refrigerator and pulled out some of the eggs that our chickens lay. We have 8 chickens and they lay white, light brown, dark brown, green and blue eggs (just like Martha's chickens). I arranged the eggs nicely in a bowl and took them on the front porch to take a photo of them in the sun - I thought the light would be better.

Here is what happened next.

I'm just saying, I don't think this ever happens to Martha!
Pin It Now!

I used to be a Martha-ite before I found quilting. I got tired of cleaning up after all those projects. That's when I wished I had a staff. That's what Martha has a staff for. To clean up the broken eggs, snips of yarn, bits of fabric or carpet or stone, etcetera, etcetera. Lane

I love your sense of humor.
Hey, we are as good as Martha, and we do it without billions of dollars. I think she's a billionaire? anyway, she has way more dough than I do!
Now tell me, since I want chickens and the darling hubby doesn't, what do you do about them if you go away?

Hey Linda,
When the chickens were just chicks we couldn't really leave them. They stayed in a box with a heat lamp and the water had to be changed a few times a day. They would scratch the litter in the water. Now that they are a year old, we can leave them for a day. The reason we don't leave them longer is because they are free range (they run around in our fenced in yard. If they had a closed area with a top, we could leave them longer. since they are in the back yard, we are worried dogs or other animals might get them. We have a couple neighbors who have said they would keep an eye on them. It would only require changing their water, feeding them and collecting their eggs. This might sound like a lot of work, but it only takes about 15 min. a day. They are so much fun to watch and they each have their own personality. They also love to eat table scraps - they will eat just about anything. If they see us with a plastic bag in our hand they come running! We plan on camping a lot this summer, so we will be asking the neighbors for their help. Hope this helps.

I'm putting my hand up, I'm not a fan of Martha...

I know thats practically sacrilege, but her projects just don't appeal to me.

And I bet that Martha has a chicken wrangler for "her" chickens.

Your bowl looks lovely though. That looks like my kind of Easter decorating!

Hahahahahahahaha - that is hilarious - if it does happen to Martha - her staff cleans up lickety-split, before anyone can catch it in a picture!

Big big LOL. That has tickled me a lot!

I don't really get the Martha phenomenon, she isn't on tv in the uk as far as I know so I've only seen bits online.

The bits I've seen seem too clinical though, all about the perfection of the end product, not the joy that comes from the creating something for its own sake.

Well maybe Martha doesn't let her eggs go splat (at least she is not going ot show you if they do) BUT HAVE YOU NOTICED the design potential in the splat?!!!!It looks like a bird in flight So get out there and make an inspired wallhanging! Thank you for visiting my blog. It has been such fun reading yours!!!!Moira
