We have a winner............and a NEW Name

Hello sweet ladies............well I have been waiting for this day and it is finally here. First our little white cochin girlie has a new name...............and it is...........

She loves it and I love it.......what do you think?

Thank you so much for all who took the time to vote. We enjoyed watching the names and what one was in the forefront.

Now for the surprise that I have been working on . I have had this idea forever...........just haven't made the time to do it. I had this artwork that I did for a fabric line way back............I always thought it would be so fun to embroider it on I thought it was so springy looking that I would use it for the giveaway. 

So now to tell you who the winner is..........

Thank you sweet ladies...........for all the sunshine you bring into my life. I truly loved reading all your precious notes. They encouraged my day and honestly you are truly the most precious ladies I have ever met. 

One more thing, I want you to know that our little farm is not the way I would want it to look right now.............if you came to visit. We have had some really tough last years.........with lots of damage from ice storms and wind to the farm buildings. For instance I had received some money for my my boys put a new roof on my coop.........tornadic winds of 80 came through and the west side of the roof came life at it's best sometimes. Smile. I have been able to take parts of the farm and make it my own.........but lots more work needs to be done. You know time.........and money?  My dream and prayer is someday I would love to have you all come. It won't be fancy..........but getting it ready for you would be half the fun. 

I truly love you all,


Thank you for making my parties so much fun!! You are all the best!

No little baby fluffs yet.........pacingggggg the floor and peeking all the time! 


  1. What a perfect name and congrats to the winner.
    If your home is as warm as your posts, then it's perfect right now, just as it is and would be a lovely place to visit.

  2. Aww are so sweet. When we moved here to the farm it had lots of work to be done........I work on a room at a time. It really needs work, but we moved from our old farm, because this farm is the home place for 6 generations our grandchildren would be 7. I am having fun fixing it up though. Just not the way I want it.

    Thank you for the encouragement. It was very nice of you,

  3. Oh I like the name!!!
    The t-towel is very nice. What a nice give away!

    I am so glad that you have your coop roof taken are of. Kansas winds can be brutal at times. I understand time and money. There is so much I want done here, but I have to be patient, too. I would love to come and visit your farm, but you don't have to spiffy anything up for me. You are always welcome to come visit here. But like Ma Kettle says "We don't stand by no ceremony here" (or something like that!)
    Are you doing the Farmer's Market this year? I never made it there when you were there before. Maybe this year if you are there.

  4. just come to my farm anytime you want to. We won't be at Farmer's Market I don't think. May do something here on our farm. Not sure what the Lord has for us yet! You need to email me sometime and tell me where you live.
    I would love to come visit.
    Hugs, Linda
