Why, hello!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nDid you know there are people who buy cottages just for the purpose of having something else to decorate. \u00a0It's true. \u00a0I am not one of those people. I can't afford the cottage or what it would take to decorate it. \u00a0Or the drive to the cottage. \u00a0A coop, though? THAT I can afford. \u00a0And mainly I walk there.\r\n\r\nI had no idea when I got my little chickens or built their coop that I'd have a whole other house to accessorize and decorate. In the words of Sheldon Cooper ... huzzah.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nSo when I saw this vintage, cloth poultry feed sack at the Christie Antique Show & Sale I had to buy it. Also it was only $10, so that pretty much sealed the deal. $10? Chicken scratch. Sign me up! \u00a0Wait. \u00a0I think it was $15. \u00a0No matter. \u00a0I can still afford it.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nNow you, like the girls here, might be thinking \u00a0...\r\nHEY! \u00a0Look at this slightly decrepit looking \u00a0bag FULL of 50 year old chicken feed! \u00a0What an awesome, awesome find.\r\nAs soon as I'm done pecking through my own poop, I'm totally getting INTO that.\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nBut you would be wrong. \u00a0That isn't a full bag of chicken feed but rather a couple of pillows shoved into a feed sack.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nIn case of rain, I encased the pillows in plastic garbage bags so they wouldn't get soaked through and develop that gross wet feather smell. \u00a0Anyone who's washed a duvet, a pillow or a down on their luck Vegas showgirl knows that scent well.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nDon't have a vintage, cloth feed sack? \u00a0 Not a problem. \u00a0Use \u00a0a regular feed sack.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nDon't have a chicken coop? \u00a0More of a problem. \u00a0But not insurmountable. \u00a0Here's what you've gotta do ..\r\n\r\n.\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nFirst ... get yourself one of these ...\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n... make a fried egg and start building.
