Farm Fresh

I'm wishing each one of you an "EGGCEPTIONAL" week.  Many of my blogging friends are raising chickens...some for the first time.
I invite you to tag along...Please enjoy this Farm Fresh post.

We have dear friends that raise chickens.
They brought us these fresh eggs.
So many soft colors...
Such spectacular taste!

My sweet Mother and sister, Patti...
Yamhill County, Oregon

Ramona, California
I snapped this just a month ago
when we were in southern California.
Yes...There really are farms in Southern California.
The Willamette Valley
Summer of 2012
Salem, Oregon
Country Life at it's best!
Farm Living...
My grandparents had a farm in
Green Acres, Oregon.
I love vintage chickens!
Sweet Paula of "Sugar Sweet and Pink" blog gave me the white rooster.
I found the small salt and peppers thrifting.

My husband loves helping me with the dishes.
Can you see why?

Have a great week, my sweet friends.
Carolynn  xoxo

My neighbor sells eggs from her chickens, but we have yet to try them. I like the photo of your Mom and sister! I enjoyed this cute post and the signs! Have a happy week!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

I love farm fresh eggs, nothing tastes better. That picture of your Mom and sister is adorable! Yep, I can see why hubby helps with dishes!


~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

There's nothing that taste better than a farm fresh egg! And what a sweetie your hubby is to help you! I love all of your pretty things in your kitchen. I don't collect chickens but it's hard for me to pass up a cute vintage chick!

Diane Higdon said...

What a wonderful post for chickens and eggs. Some great pics from times gone by. Hope you have a great week.

A Garden of Threads said...

There is nothing nicer then a fresh egg for breakfast.

Patti said...

No Way - Ramona! I am from Ramona! My entire family lives there, except for my children. We moved to the desert because hubs got a job as a firefighter in the desert. Now, I am 1/2 way between Ramona and the desert! Oh, gosh - I would have loved to meet you in person when you were out this way. I also hope to have a chicken house soon! And, I think a cute sign would be wonderful, too!

Blessed Serendipity said...

I have a flock of six and love having fresh eggs to eat. Loved your chicken post. Do you live in Oregon? I know a little of the Willamette area. I used to live in Oregon. Hope you have a great week.


Melanie said...

Love yur chicks!! Farm fresh eggs are the best!! Can't buy that taste in the store!!

Vee said...

I think I missed the mosaic, but these photographs are so cheerful and beautifully presented. Nothing better tasting than a fresh egg!

Old Time Cindy said...

That is one cool photo of your mom and sister. I've been thinking of getting chickens, but just don't know for sure right now.
Farmhouse hugs,

craftyles said...

I love chickens too. Yours are so cute. The farm pictures are wonderful, especially the one of your sis and Mom.

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

Hi Sweetie! I always enjoy looking at all of your beautiful photos! Tee hee about the sign for kisses...I think I need one of those.

Have an eggceptional new week and may God bless you abundantly!


Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Oh you know me so well. I do adore this post. I love the chicks in your header too. Such fun country gardens you showed.

Dorthe said...

A wonderful post about among other things :chickens...Love the white one sweet Paula gave you, and the ones you found yourself...
We have had chickens on the farm, but after all the troubles with the Bird-flue where they were not allowed to get out in the fresh air, we stopped, and have not had any fresh eggs since! really a shame.
I wish you a lovely week dear Carolyn,
I love your green/black rooster ,too .
Hugs from Dorthe and thankyou for your dear visits.

Nancy Carr said...

Jann Olson said...

Oh my friend, you chick-a-dee header made me smile so very big! Love that cute pair! This is such a fun post. My sweet cousin gives me farm fresh eggs too. Sometimes I think I would love to have some girls of my own, but my yard really isn't too big. Not sure where I would put them. Love, love that red tractor! Yup, I can see why hubby doesn't mind doing dishes.

Elena said...

I love fresh eggs too! My folks had a flock of Rhode Island reds that produced the best brown eggs when I was a teenager and they were so good! Blessings to you today dearest Carolynn!

vintage grey said...

Hi Carolynn! Such a sweet post and how I would love to have a farm fresh egg right now! They are truly the best!! Such fun photos, and I love the one of your pretty mom and cute sister!! Wishing you a beautiful week dear friend! xo Heather

Kathleen Grace said...

I love chickens, Earl and I were just discussing getting chicks this spring. I can't wait, love the fresh eggs and listening to the little peeps and clucks as they grow:>)

Shirley Hatfield said...

I don't think I have left you a comment for awhile...shame on me! What a lovely colorful post! I felt like when I was a little girl and stayed with my bestie who lived on a farm. Everything to me was fresh and exciting...but to her it was old hat. I wanted to feed the chickens, watch the cows be milked, pick apples. Cathy just wanted to veg in her room and avoid any and all farm chores. I am sure that if it were my life I wouldn't be as keen...but a farm morning was sunny, with roosters crowing and pancakes on the old coal stove! Loved it!

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

I enjoyed your chicken post! I've wanted chickens for a while now. That's wonderful that you have friends that share their fresh eggs with you!

Hi Carolynn

Lots of Easter chicken inspiration with your photos!
Farm fresh eggs are the best - not so easy to get in the city tho.
