GET R DONE FRIDAY - and my contest winner!

First - the RESULTS of the "Name That Weasel" Contest!
There were so many good names, and I thank you all for participating! The decision was difficult to make, but easier than thinking up a name by myself, let me tell you!
The RUNNERS UP were:
Penniwig, with "Gretel"
April, with "Slinky"
Laura, with "Sprite"
Corgidog mama with "Sadie Sue"
To these individuals, I would like to award a special prize (No - not a 'booby prize'! Something NICE!), which I will send out next week, but PLEASE - you must contact me with your mailing address, as soon as possible!
Amy, with the name "Dazzle"! Congratulations, Amy - Please contact me to claim your prize - I will need your mailing address in an email message.
So, now it's official, Diesel and Dazzle!

Several weeks ago, I showed pictures of a lovely chicken cottage that Mr. Wonderful built for our 5 young hens. This fall they should be ready to start laying eggs, and they definitely adore their new home. They've begun to use the roost inside, which is high enough for them to peek out the insulated glass window to the great outdoors when the weather is lousy. I love their little home as well, and since Mr. Wonderful added the cute little shutters on the sides of that window, I have been planning to work some more "decorating magic" to the outsides of the REST of the chook cottage! In the pictures below, you can see what I've completed this week. As always, click on the pictures to enlarge.
First things first - SIGNAGE!

Next, a window box, complete with flowers AND flags for the 4th of July Holiday!

And, last but not least....."GASP!" WhazzzZAT?"
I guess they better get busy and produce some EGGS - - - or ELSE - - -
"The DICKENS, you say!"the MOTIVATOR!

I hope you have enjoyed today's post, and please link in on "Mr. Linky" below to join us, or click on the names to see what GET R DONE projects others have been working on!

Your place in real life is even cuter than your place online! I just love coming here... All I did today was a bunch of photoshop workflow for my puppy and my son's digital scrapbooks. Some of it ended up in my blog. I feel lazy after seeing all you did... I should be lucky enough to be one of your animals. :)
