A Little Party Giveaway!



Hello everyone!
It is raining outside here so that means I am in the house. I have wanted to get up the little gift idea I had for you last Friday, but you who follow know we had computer problems and lots of little babies hatching. Soooooo I thought for fun we would have a little party giveaway! Starting today and ending on, Monday May 24th! I can't send the jam overseas, but I can send the little scone bag and mix. Sorry!

I have a little tutorial so you can make The Coffeehouse Scones (recipe at the bottom of blog) for yourself. You can print out the recipe and make a tag. It is fun to always take a little gift, if you have been invited somewhere.

Sift dry ingredients using a sifter.
Sift onto waxed paper.
Put dry ingredients into a cellophane bag and tie with twine. This will slip perfectly into your little bag. If you give this as a gift, you will need to tell them that they will have to add 1/2 cup butter, 2/3 cup buttermilk. The recipe is at the bottom of post.
Cut a piece of fabric 15" wide x 11" tall.
Make a double seam at the top of fabric and sew across the full 15".

Fold fabric from side to side. Sew sides and bottom.

Box the corners of both sides of bag. Draw a 1" line from point. Sew across corners.

Using pinking shears cut off excess. Turn the bag inside out. Place mixture inside and tie with a ribbon.

Cut a 7 1/2" circle of coordinating fabric for the cap of the jam, pink the edges. Place over
jam and tie in place with a ribbon.

  1. Well, if you can believe it, I have never made scones. I see them online everywhere; people enjoying them with jam and coffee. Just never put it too high up on the to do list. Now this mix will introduce me to the deliciousness of scones. That jam sounds so yummy! Do you have rhubarb out in Kansas? I do have a mini clump here; it doesn't seem to grow any bigger...any tips? Should I fertilize it? Anyway, enter me!

  2. Yes, put horse manure around it. It makes it thrive! It likes lots of water also.

    I will put up the recipe again for the Strawberry Rhubarb Jam. I had it a up last week. It is so nummy! One of my favorites now. I really love SandHill Plum. Yesterday, Mr. Farmer and myself went up our Kansas Mountain and looked to see if we had any wild sandhill plums. Hundreds of them!!!! It is the best also!

    You will love the scone recipe. Reallly easy!! and very nummy!

    Thank you for entering!!!

  3. Hi Linda, It is like getting a gift to read your posts. I will try making these scones with my daughter once school is over. Could you add chocolate chips? That is what she keeps requesting-chocolate chip scones like they sell at the high school. Thank you so much! sue.momof3@gmail.com

  6. Yes, easy to just add anything to this recipe. I even put in fresh strawberries, blueberries and chocolate chips would be very easy to add. Mmmmmmm great idea, Sue!

    Yup, that is what I was talking about was just to the post. I would love to do a newsletter someday. It is on the list! Smile.
    Blessings!

  15. What a sweet giveaway Linda. :) My phone and internet were out for the last week so I am catching up on my blog reading. I enjoy coming here to read, and not just for crafts, etc, but I love seeing God here too! And thank you for the freebies that I have downloaded. :)

    I follow you and subscribe to the email newsletter. I also posted to my blog http://beforethedawn.org/wpblog/?p=1370 My host is changing servers, actually I am not sure if it has happened already or if it is in the process of switching... She said it should go down for up to 72 hours. SO if it's gone at any time I apologize, it will be back soon.

    Hope it's okay to put all my entries in one comment or do I need to separate?

    Hope you have a beautiful day!

  20. I haven't ever had scones either! My mom and uncle have a real fondness for strawberry-rhubarb jam or pie or anything with the two together! Thank you for the gift bag idea as well! We are planning to make some homemade salsa as soon as the tomatoes are ready so I might have to make bags like these with cornbread mix and salsa! Wouldn't that be fun!

    Oh I just love this. What a simple idea and so CUTE :) :) What a beautiful way of honoring someone and showing hospitality. :) I especially like the use of fabric :) :) I'll post this on my profile page for my friends to see too :)
    Hm...let's see...I definitely follow this blog on-line as well as anything you post on the Facebook page. It's so encouraging in every way... :) :)
    I do get emailed announcements to my yahoo email, every time you post a new blog. I'm not sure of that's the newsletter or not. If not, could you email me with that information? I'd love to have it.
    I love seeing the e-mailed announcements with the most recent blog post...well, it's the equivalent of getting a real letter from a friend in the postal mail :) :) Absolutely delightful :)

  84. Good Morning Linda,
    I feel as if we are neighbors just down the lane. The first thing I noticed on your post was your sifter! I collect old sifters! Don't have alot but I love them. I think they remind me of helping my mom and grandma in the kitchen. I LOVE sandhill plum jelly. I have to buy mine at the farmers market in Hutch but it is sooo worth it.
    Have a wonderful day. God is so good.

  89. Oh I almost missed this party!!! Please put my name in the hat....!! I love the idea of gifting the scones recipe and and homemade jam. I know of a lot of people that would just be tickled to get such a gift. So many, these days, just don't have the time, with working and family and all.
    I haven't been online much lately either. We've been busy rebuilding an old shed for our new chickens. LOL!! You know how it goes when you start a project, and it grows and grows and you spend days on what you thought might be a day or two project. Well, I'm sure our hens will appreciate it when it is done and produce us lots of eggs.
    I just love your blog, Linda...feels like home!

    I follow you and receive your emails. I'm really glad you send the emails, because my internet connection is soooo slooow- but the emails always come through more quickly.

    I've been meaning to tell you how much I enjoy hearing about your chickens (and the little duck). I raised chickens many years ago. We had a Momma Hen who just couldn't give up mothering her chicks. When they were almost as big as she was, she would try to gather them under her wings....while sitting on the roost. When I sing, "Under His Wings, I am safely abiding...." I think of that hen.

    Thanks for sharing!

  109. Hello everyone, just a little over an hour and we will have our real party and see who won. Can't wait!

    I received this email yesterday.

    Hello Linda,
    I would like to enter your giveaway for the coffeehouse scones and jam. Although I do not have a blog I do get yours daily and so appreciate it and am so much a faithful follower of it. You make me realize how very much just the little things in life mean so much. I even look at my own baby chicks and turkeys now so differently. I feel very blessed to have our little farm and animals with it and of course our garden. You don't know just how very much I look forward to your blog in my daily email, God has made you a very special person and you have touched many a persons lives I can tell, for the better.
    Hugs, Betsy

    I feel loved!!!!!!!

    Blessings, Linda
