what's going on in my world

     I hope that everyone's week is going well! I'm just going to share some farmy pics in this post and give an update on what's in store as far as upcoming blog posts. If you saw the last post you will know that I'm doing a series of Prom- worthy eye make up looks. There are a few already planned, but if anyone has any requests I will see what I can do (just drop a comment or email me at!) I'm also on Facebook now, if anyone is interested in connecting in that way. I also have some reviews in store (quite a few, in fact!) I still need to review and swatch some of my new/ newish Nyx products that I ordered forever ago, along with some goodies from Shiro Cosmetics, Meow Cosmetics, Too Faced (yeah, I totally scored some awesomeness during the vintage sale!), and Hard Candy. 
     I'm also toying around with the idea of doing a post about the importance of taking care of your brushes/ tools and maybe another on organization. If/ when I begin to get more followers, I may do a give-a-way (more details will be available soon.) Does anyone have any suggestions on topics that would make interesting posts? Again, just leave a comment, shoot me an e-mail, or look me up on Facebook (if you do a search for "Chasing Blue Feathers" I'm listed as 'personal blog' and my picture is the logo/ watermark/ you name it that I usually stamp on my pictures.)

This is a calf that I helped my daddy bottle feed for a little while- her momma had twins and only had enough milk for one baby, so she abandoned her. Now she has a new momma, a cow that lost her own calf, but the new momma has accepted her and treats her as if she had given birth to her herself. This means that we were finally able to put her back with the rest of the herd and she is happy as could be :)

This pic is of Sarah's cow (Bobbie Joe, left) and Marlena (my cow, right.) They're both growing well and Marlena should be having her calf in another month or so. I'm really excited, because she is my first personally owned cow; I'm hoping that it is a little heifer so I will be able to keep her and breed her.

     Now that the weather is getting nicer, I'm hoping to be able to take more photographs of the farm to share. We have another bottle calf that I'll be trying to get pictures of. He has a momma, but she's been running low on milk. Also, the calves in the herd are just the sweetest things! They run around playing like human children.


  1. Sounds like you have some fun stuff coming up! That's awesome that the bottle fed calf was accepted by a new momma! Isn't raising animals so much fun?!

  2. It is fun! When things go right, there isn't anything else that feels as rewarding :)
