Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #210


Welcome to Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop and welcome to December! Can you believe that it is December? Are you crafting, baking and fitting in some relax and enjoy time as well???

Deb is crafting! She is sharing such cute Canning Jar Lid ornaments with us today! You MUST head over and check them out!

AND congrats to Daisy of  Maple Hill Farm Blogspot! She won the note card giveaway! Way to go Daisy!

We are slimming down the Christmas decorating since we are kitchen remodeling- there are only so many hours in the day, right? We did get our tree however this week and I have a couple of Christmas favs around the house.

This weekend I am tiling in prep for the stove and that will be all the decoration I need if I am cooking up a storm on Christmas eve! Send good vibes out this way for that. 🙂

Deb did mention that we are still eating fresh tomatoes here! Can you believe it? She hinted about wanting a quiche recipe that I made this week. Well, I must confess that it is not my own, but it is AMAZING and you can get it here!  I did sub out the arugula for mizuna. I have them both growing in my cold frame and picked the wrong one so I used what I had. It was sooooo good!

Take a break from your holiday prep and share what you are up to!

Thanks, as always for joining in!

Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #131

DSCN3364Welcome to the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop!  So happy you have stopped by to read a bit and share a bit.

I don’t know about you but living this farmgirl lifestyle is a constant stream of learning!  Whether you are discovering a great new paint for refurnishing furniture like Deb over at Dandelion House, cooking up something new and yummy like Dolly, exploring and learning about your community like Heidi, learning a new way to garden or something new to grow, or a new craft, or how to do something yourself that never occurred to you before or…. well you get the idea.  Us farmgirls are always learning and trying something new.  This weekend I head off to beekeeping school. Did I ever have that in my plans a couple years ago?  NOPE!  But it seems perfectly in sync now with my ever evolving lifestyle.

That is why I love our blog hop on Fridays!  You share so many things with us that enrich my life or that gives me confidence to try something new.

Last week I read with such great interest City Boy’s blog on finding that his Honey Bee Queen had died and what he did when that occurred.  Since I have bees on the brain right now that caught my eye, but also educated me on something that may occur in my future with our bees and was just a darn good read!

So what are you learning, trying, experiencing this week?  Grab a seat and share some of your farmgirl (farmboy) happenings!

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF THE FARMGIRL SISTERHOOD to join the FARMGIRL/BOY FRIDAY BLOG HOP.  BUT with all the cool stuff ya’ll do I would highly recommend it!  Earning badges for doing stuff that we are doing!  It’s like scouts for grownups.  How fun is that???  I just love being a part of the Farmgirl Sisterhood.  Finding MJs Farm  is helping me discover and embrace all the things I love!
