Last weekend I had a day out with my good friend Chris. We once again headed up the mountains to our usual places.
Our first stop was to our favourite anitque store in Hazelbrook. I bought some old medicine bottles and ointment containers. I just love old bottles and boxes.
In the photo is Empirin Compound tablets bottle, Cod Liver Oil tablets bottle, Eucalyptus Extract bottle, Nasal Balm box which still has the cream in the box, a bandage still in the pacakage, 2 cream containers.
The bottles are so cute and they still have some tablets in them...not that I will be trying any!!
The cream containers are handwritten on the top, the one on the right has St. Vincent's Hospital, Sydney on it.
There is also a bottle of Cutex Nail Polish. At the end of the cork top is a small brush. It is so cute.
On to the next antique store to pick up my layby...an old Butter Churn. I have always wanted one of these and I just love it. It is slightly damaged but hey I'm not going to use it!
We had a great day out chatting and laughing as we always do!
A couple of weeks ago I bought the book The Contented Chook. It has some very interesting homemade chook pens in it for different size yards.
I would really love to have some chickens in my backyard. My yard is not very big so I would only be able to have 2 chickens. I have been trying to work out how I would be able to incorporate them into my yard. The pen would have to have enough room for them during the day when I am at work as they would have to be locked up and then they could free range when I home.
The other problem that I have is Bailey, as he likes to chase anything that moves. My neighbour has some chickens so I am going to take Bailey up there and see what he does with them (with him on the lead of course). My neighbour said that he will get used to them being around after a while, but I am not so sure especially when I am at work.
Anyway, still a lot of research and thinking to be done...I will let you know the outcome!
Enjoy your day!
