imperfection is beautiful

Hey ya'll,

         I love fresh eggs! You can't get imperfection like this at wal-mart!! I love eggs that are different, wrinkles, spots, different colors, sizes, shapes, I love it! Sure does beat those plain old boring white caged salmonella invested  eggs from the store!! I have to say, I didnt know that having chickens would be this much fun, but I am in love with it!!


  1. You would love my egg cartons. Not only the different shades of brown(speckled and not), but also a dark terra-cota, Blue, Green, Teal, and I have a hen that lays a purple egg. The egg is actually brown, but is covered is extremely tiny creamy-white specks. This gives it a lite purple color.


  2. Oh wow, I would love to see that purple egg, I bet that is beautiful!! Which of your chickens lay that one? Sounds like you get every color in the rainbow! Thanks for the comment!

About Me

My photo
I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina, in a little camper, with my husband and family. We are trying to become self sufficient and live off the land. I am sick of all the sad news on TV, the economy, and the evil world we live in, so we are trying to make things as simple as possible and get back to the basics. I think if everyone did that, and had faith in God the world might be a better place. Follow along, as we live life in our little tin can, and try to make it a home, while learning to homestead.
