I smell something very familiar to me - something that I LOVE!
Which drawer could they be in?
 I found them, Molly!
 A whole drawer-full of yummy fabulous feathers!

 I just love to chew them apart and scatter the pieces everywhere!
Dad says, "No, Mitch, you can't have my feathers.  Each and everyone of them is special to me."
 I am not fooled by this mom - it's a fake and it's not funny! 
I want the real thing!

We thought you guys might like to see the video that our timber frame buddy, Dana, uploaded to the Northford TimberFramer site.  It's a tour of Crumpie's barn!

Love ya lots
Mitch and Molly

We've scared all the birds out of our garden, so we don't see any feathers... Woops!

Oh my a feather fetish LOL. Loved the video and all the wood is fabulous and we loved big time the touch of keeping the apple ladder. Thank you we so enjoyed it. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

With all your big birds on the pond you should have an endless supply of feathers. Our mom enjoyed the tour of the barn. It sure is beautiful.

With all the Ducks Geese and Swans around ... you must have a huge supply of Fabulous Feathers.

Loved the Crumpie Tour.

Gorgeous barn. Our uncle in VA would just love it. He's made his own houses and has made the furniture for them.

We think all your waterfowl must keep you in chewing feathers. We tend to ignore the feathers we find.

XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

What are all those special feathers your Dad collects? Sounds interesting. We see feathers once in a while but it usually means that SomePup caught a birdie:(

The barn is looking beautiful - so many nice touches. Mom is in love with the floors:)

Have fun with your feathers!

I bet Fergus would like feather's too. Really enjoyed your video. I think I would like to live in your barn. It sure is beautiful!

Auntie Penny used to really like feathers too.

Does your dad have one from each bird? He did such a good job on the barn, we love the fireplace!

Mom won't let us have feathers. She's afraid we'll poke them into our throats. Our pet birds keep tossing them to us anyway.
