Snoopy’s Got Nothin’ On Me!

I have my chicken coop back for a few months so I thought I might as well make the most of it.

Last year, my girls Rosie, Daisy & Violet were the inhabitants of the only decorated chicken coop in Central Alabama (that I know of).  They even had their own stockings!

This year, however, the coop is adorned with generic stockings, garland, ribbon and tacky lights.  My aim was to copy the decorating skills of that famous cartoon character with the tricked-out dog house.

I placed it where it can be seen from all angles if someone is walking by Casa de Burlingame.

And since I don’t have any live chickens this year, I hired some neighborhood extras to dress up and add to the scene.

They work cheap and their wardrobe costs next to nothing.

This year, my girls will spend Christmas with my good pal Debbie and her beautiful flock.  Although I don’t think Debbie will decorate her giant Chicken habitat with colored lights and tinsel, I’m sure that each chicken will have their own stocking to hang for Santa.

Right Debbie? 🙂

  1. Right on, Deb. Rosie, Daisy and Violet say they miss you but not to worry, they have been good chicks and so they are looking forward to what Santa will bring. Love this post, been waiting a while to see it. I love how you decorated the coop and those critters look cool all decked out! Always enjoy your posts (except for the sad ones). Why did the chicken cross the road? To get a closer look at the Burlingame Merry Christmas Coop, of course! Love you, my friend.

  2. Debbie, thanks for the sweet comment. I am grateful to you for letting me take back the coop. We are really enjoying it and I hope my neighbors are too. Even the grouchy one! 🙂 He has a really great view from his house!
