Barnyard Bash!

I'm joining in the Barnyard Bash, go here for lots of fun and inspiration!

The only real barnyard items I have are these three little piggies, aren't they adorable! They are Jim Shore look-a-like, and have lots of pretty details carved and painted on:
I found them last year at Ross, much cheaper than a Jim Shore, only $5.99! Even though I didn't "need" them I couldn't resist at that price!

I found these chickens the same day (at Ross.) This was only $6.99!
The baby chickens are so cute!
I really like the art work on the mother hen!

You probably saw this dandy rooster at the Rooster party a while ago. I also found him at Ross for $6.99!
Isn't he a handsome dude!

Here's Henrietta again, I found her at Home Goods, she has been featured on a tablescape
and she crashed the rooster party! She insisted on coming to the Barnyard Bash as well!

Now I know this pretty little dog doesn't look like she belongs in a barnyard
but she was nearby and looking so sweet, I thought I would share her as well!

Could you resist those eyes??
I would love to have a real King Charles Cavalier doggie like this, but they cost way too much!! When I saw this resin one looking so real, I had to bring her home! (Only $9.99 too!!) Isn't she beautiful! Her name is Laci!

I hope you enjoyed my little collection of animals and foul!

Thanks for hosting, Lynn! So much fun!

Have a happy day!

God Bless.


Don't they just make you smile?!

Katherine, I love it! The pigs and chicken would have come home with me too! And yes, dogs do belong in the barnyard, especially when they're that cute! Thank you for joining the Barnyard Bash:@)

Hi Katherine,

Yes! We are adopting a toddler girl from Ethiopia!! We are so excited to be on this journey. Some of our friends think we're crazy since our youngest is 20 years old! But, when God moves you, He moves you. =)

Katherine, those are just the cutest little pigs. My goodness, I can't keep up with all the meme's and this one has to be a really cute one! The colors are so vivid on your little barnyard creatures...
Where do you keep them, or rather now do you display them. I would love to see. Great colors for Fall too!
The little hen with one of her brood on her back is adorable too!
Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

They are so cute. That faux doggie is the only kind I like! No barking or pooping! :)
