It Is The Lord's Day.......Let's Have A Tea Party!!!!!!!!!

Hello sweet ladies,

"Tea Party Across the Miles" December 11-18th

Now that I am home, I thought of having a little fun........ this is open to anyone!!!! I know it is a busy time for so many, but for some this might be something you would like to do. Here goes...... I thought that we could have a "Tea Party Across The Miles", all you have to do is buy or make a simple CHRISTmas card, put a tea bag in the card, write a note and send it to a sweet lady, that I will match you up with. Easy! Whether you have a blog or not, whether you live overseas or in the states (if you don't want over seas, tell me)......... you are welcome to join in!!! 

1. Please first leave a comment here on this post or on the email if you subscribe to me, that you are joining in on the "Tea Party".

2. Then email me at, 
put TEA PARTY in the subject line please and put in your addy,  so I can match you up!

 Be sure to write a little note in the card before sending it off!

I hope this will bring us all a little closer being a Prairie Flower Farm family! It sure has been happening on the blog and fb......... that has been  precious!

Sooooooo let the Tea Party begin!

Last night Watched the Nativity Story as I was finishing up sewing some "Winter" Snowmen Ornies. It was relaxing and comfy warm in our farmhouse. Bitter cold outside. All the animals were all snug in their straw covered places. 

My pullets (young hens), that were hatched last year are starting to lay little tiny pullet eggs. It really is amazing how tiny they start out to be as they start to lay eggs. Thought you would like to see how sweet they look. The quarter shows how small!

I keep rolling the eggs every morning and evening, that are in the incubator all toasty and warm. Their due date is on Tuesday!!!!!!!! Can't believe I have been taking care of them for almost 21 days! They could come as soon as tomorrow........... possibly. 

Yesterday I had so much fun with my sweet friends, Grandma Yoder, Rosa and Marian. The girls and I kind of got in trouble with Grandma. She came from old order Amish. When we all sit around the table.........there can be a lot of laughter and we (mostly me) get the look from Grandma "Laughter is a good medicine"......right? Anyway I forgot my camera and that made me sad, because I didn't get any pic's for you all! Before we left I always go to hug and kiss  Grandma. She took my hand and kissed it. I have to say that melted my heart big time! She is not really my Grandmother, but she is close to it! I walked away with my cup full. Much needed in this world today. 

I thought I would share this recipe with you. It is so so nummy and I think you might like and use it as a CHRISTmas gift. I made it last year. It is delicious!!!!!!!

Crumb CHRISTmas Cinnamon Sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tea. cinnamon
1/4 c. walnuts ( I used about 1/2 cup)

Process in a food processor. Fill it in a cute little homespun jar cut a circle
to make a skirt for the jar........tie a ribbon.........put a sweet little snowflake
ornament on..........and make a tag with a message from your heart.
You can either make a loaf of homemade bread or go to your favorite
bakery and buy one. Set on a plate.........use clear cellophane and wrap
it up!!! Anyone would love this simple gift of love!

Hugs to you and may the Lord meet you today that He Has Made!!!!!!! Trust it will be a day of worship and rest for you.

Can't wait to see who comes to the party!!!!!!!!
