A "little Giveaway", Vacation is Over!

Hello sweet ladies, 

My vacation is over........it was such a sweet time to be home. Thanking Jesus for all He does for myself and family! Now it is time to go back to the college. It will be good to see everyone. I have missed my kids...I will be able to share Jesus.....that is the only thing that makes it worth it.....leaving my farm each day! 


This is my "little" giveaway. Small little farm boot ornament. Nothing big......just sweet! You know I just love Parties!

The party ends Tuesday night at midnight central time so hurry and sign up!!!!!! 

Thought I needed a party.......while I am gone at work today! This is an ornament. I have one and one to give away! If you win, it could be hung on a doorknob, a picket fence.....by your chicken coop.......I am sure you could find some sweet place to hang it. I want some real boots, just like these. Adorableness don't you think? I saw a real pair just like this. In the back of each boot there were two holes.....they had laced black with white polka dot ribbon through each hole and then tied it in a bow. Farmgirl attire!!!!!!

To enter......all you have to do is leave me message. Tell me what you might be planting in your garden this spring. I can hardly wait to start some seeds...love watching the little baby sprouts come up. Tomato seeds are on the top of my list! Okay....tell me what you might be doing to get ready for SPRING!


We have an abundance of eggs.....I asked ladies on my fb for ideas.......they had wonderful ones! Even though it has been very cold my girls are still laying. The new ones are still getting used to the coop. I so hope they start laying some day! We give our girls very warm water and lots of extra protein during the winter months. I am so grateful the Lord provides! 



Hugs and may the Lord bless your day,

Linda

P.S. It will be fun to see who comes to the party!!!!!!
If you go to my facebook and leave a comment....come back and tell me and you will be entered two times!!!!!

  1. I'd be making pickled eggs and quiche if I had an abundance of eggs. For spring? I want to finish a few projects and get them out of the way and then about the only thing I will be planting is tomatoes.

  2. I'm thinking all the goodies for salsa (tomatoes, onions, peppers, cilantro). Pumpkins for my boys. Hmmm. This cold weather has me looking forward to spring. :)

  4. We try each year to grow some tomatoes and sweet corn. So neat to watch Gods handy work as the grow. Thank you for a chance to receive these cute little red boots. Having a piece of your friendship in our home would be special.

  5. I didn't get to plant a garden last year, so I am hoping to get one this year. We want to try gardening in raised beds (Georgia has terrible soil!). Tomatoes, beans, hot and sweet peppers, and squash always make their way into my garden!

  6. Love your boot ornament! It reminds me of the boots I put on each morning to go check on my girls...I'm sorry to report that 7 of them were killed by a mink last week, despite our best efforts to protect them. Eggs are slow coming since then. I can't wait for spring too....I'll definitely be planting squash, peppers, tomatoes and potatoes.

  7. We won't even be able to think about planting anything here until the end of May. Think most people who start plants from seeds here would do so in March or thereabouts. I haven't had good success with starting tomatoes, but this year we want to try and start some marigold plants.

    With eggs -- I'd be serving "breakfast for dinner" several nights per week if I had extra. Some of my favorite egg casserole recipes call for a dozen.

    Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

  14. We have such poor soil, we live in the woods of Northern Michigan, so my attempts at gardening are not usually very good. I tried hay bale gardening and it also failed........I think someone is trying to tell me that I did not get my father's green thumb! :) I do have a raspberry patch though. I love the ornament and appreciate you considering me as your winner. Have a wonderful day!!!! Did I mention we are currently in the deep freeze up here in Michigan!!!!

  15. I will be leaving a comment on your FB page also...thanks again....Annie B from Michigan

  25. Thank you for inviting me to your party! I left you a msg on your FB page. I plan to plant sunflowers along the edge of our garden this summer. I love to see their happy faces looking up towards the sky. I heard it helps to feed the birds, therefore keeping them out of the garden. Have a great day! Love and hugs!

    I have thought about what to plant since I picked the last vegetables in the fall. I want more tomatoes( will have to add more calcium because of blossom end rot), green beans , corn, melons.
    I am going to give a try a growing cut flowers to sell at our local farmers market--my brother and I sell their every weekend and started the market.

  28. Hi Linda--glad you're going to back to the college to love on those kids! :) We're planning on putting in raised beds for our gardens here at our new place in OK. Once we have the plans for those in place I'll start deciding what we'll plant in them. I think we also have some moving around of things in our yard landscape-wise to do--looking forward to working in the yard again...blessings on your day :) Thanks for the opportunity to win the cute work boot ornaments! ((hug))

  32. Hi Linda!! Its hard for me to think about Spring right now, because I am loving the 15 or so inches of snow we receive in Indiana. I have had 2 snow days because of it and have spent the time organizing my sewing "area" and sewing. Not to mention blog hopping!! My goal this year is to get some spinach, potatoes and onions in the ground this year. We'll see. I did say hello to you on Facebook, but just had to come over and be inspired on your blog too!! Hugs to you!! Stay warm! :)

  37. I love your parties! Thank you for sharing a little SONshine with us daily. Such cute little boots! I plan on growing more potatoes this year, Yukon Gold & Reds. We didn't have near enough last year. More onions too....I canned some "cowboy candy" (pickled jalepeno, onion, carrot & garlic) last year and I think we need a lot more of that too ;-) Hugs & Blessing to you, Vicky W

  41. My garden plans are just starting to develop. I will definately be planting herbs, tomatoes and peppers in the greenhouse. Out side, we will have red potatoes, zucchini, cabbage, carrots, peas, and onions. While my heart gardens on a large scale, my reality is small scale cardening. But, hey, a little gardening is better than no gardening, right!

  42. Adorable ornament. I left a comment on Facebook also.

    I will be planting tomatoes, onions, carrots, peas, green beans, peppers, cucumbers, hoping my garden will do well this year. Hasn't done good in the last 2 years.

  47. Love the mini boot! I have a real pair of red boots just like these. I "park" them next to the oak hall tree my husband made for me. I would hang the mini on one of the hooks, above the real boots.

  54. Hello Linda
    It is lovely to come & visit you here now that I get your blog through email so I don't often comment (sorry about that). Well since spring is so far away for us I'll tell you about autumn. After another dismal summer of no water & scorching hot days that are killing my garden ( never mind the lambs that camped in our yard while we were away & ate the whole garden ~ I kid you not ~ I am very, very sad about it) anyway... I have realised that winter is the best time to garden here for our climate. My only sadness is that I can't put in all the summer veges, but I do grow the winter greens really well. This year I am intending to plant out the whole garden over winter rather than just a little patch.
    Hope you are going well!
    Blessings
    Renata:)

  55. I will be planting flowers for the purpose of attracting butterflies and songbirds. :) I love my flight friends! Contemplating watermelon, cantaloupe, and cucumbers...... But I just want the birds. Lol So. Flowers it will probably stay. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. will be planting flowers & tommy toes! that's about all the tomatoes I can get to grow here, too much late blight in the area. I receive you via email, and went to FB, commented and "liked" you there!

    I always so enjoy getting your posts in my email You are a blessing! And I am in awe of all that you do for others. <3 Now, we just moved over 850 miles from So Cal to So Oregon. The fellow who built this place had an amazing garden and I have so much already set up. I need to learn about pruning raspberry bushes and grapes. I also need to trim the dead artichokes on those bushes and renovate the raised beds that need gopher protection laid down and more dirt/compost added to them and that's just the start! I will be working hard and having fun! God Bless ~ Barbara Wing Shadow Farm

    Hi Linda...the boot is adorable! In my garden this year I want to plant enough tomatoes so I can can them like my mom did and enlarge my raspberry patch considerably with plants from my parents house that were started decades ago. My mom passed away December 11, 2013..and I really want to continue doing things she did and pass it down to my children and grandchildren. Much love and blessings to you and your family!

  59. I am excited about my garden this year--garden catalogs have been coming in. I plant the regulars--corn, beans, tomatoes, squashes etc but will probably try something new just or fun.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I will plant tomatoes and some more perennials. We have had such bad luck with something eating our beans so no more. Sometime I'd like to try starting plants early inside, but we don't really have the time or space yet. It would be fun to have any early spring inside. Thank you for the give-away!

  62. I want to plant veggies for salsa and more herbs and perennials. I think maybe it's time to start planning. I'm going to start my plants indoors with the Keurig cups. I hope it works. I also posted on Facebook.

  63. Hi Linda! I want to grow some fresh herbs so we can eat healthy and light! I also love my Cosmos flowers. They withstand the elements so wonderfully and are very colorful! Nick arrived at OKC safely. Now if he would just call that they arrived safely at school! Hugs Anne

  64. I want to grow squash in my garden. Never successful in the past.

  65. Hi again. Definitely maybe get John to start a veggie garden on back. Want some home grown tamaters! Love the red boot. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. We'll be planting a big garden like you. I hope this year our watermelons will do better. Maybe we'll have more time to make sure they're taken care of. I love the boots.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Marigolds, they do surprisingly well in the desert heat of the Mojave. I also will be planting an assortment of annual herbs. I'm hoping things come up by themselves as soon as the nights stay above 40 degrees.

    ReplyDelete
  68. We're in Florida and we started tomatoes awhile back. They were a bit slow getting going but are almost ripe. I'm hoping the last few days of cold (for here) haven't done them in. I guess we didn't time them quite right, but it's hard because timing here is so different from most of the U.S. Once all chances of frost at night are over, I will probably do more tomatoes and some carrots. And some new flowers for in front of the front window.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Oh my goodness, I am just pouring over all the seed catalogs I ordered! So many things to choose from! I will definitely be planting tomatoes, and miniature white cucumbers, as well as adding to my blueberry plants. All container plants! Hoping this year will be a great growing year for everyone!

  73. Your little ornament is very sweet. I did not use my raised beds this year but hope to next spring. I will plant zucchini and tomatoes for sure. I will have to think about what else. I don't have a huge space.
