and White Wolf Summit Farmgirl Blog
Dolly of Hibiscus House and Dolly is Cooking and me of course!
Let's get right to our giveaway items. What does every farmgirl need on her suburban homestead, city garden scape, or backyard farm yard besides a small patch of dirt? What makes her day go smoother and keeps her cleaner as she goes about her daily rounds?
Why, an APRON of course! Heidi, Dolly and I are giving away one apron each as our way of saying thank you for all of your wonderful posts and your continued participation in our weekly hop!
Each of our aprons comes with a story. Here's mine.
The vintage apron I'm giving away came from the Queen Bee herself, sister # 1 Mary Jane Butters!
Being the generous farmgirl she is she donated a big box of vintage aprons to me to sell in my booth and I kept one very special apron out for this occasion.
This vintage apron is made with a delicate crisp blue and red cotton flower print edged in white rick-rack. It's in perfect wearable condition with two pockets for collecting eggs, or garden gloves. Ready to wear or add to your apron collection!
Next up is Heidi's Apron Giveaway!
"The apron's body is made from a muted sky blue and white floral print with large cabbage roses and tree blossoms on it. A full length apron featuring a lovely contrasting red and white polka dot ruffle around the skirt, ties, and front left pocket. This design/print was the first Maryjane's Farm apron I ever bought. I still have my original one. It's very special to me. It reminds me of my Grandma Pearl. I was so excited to find this apron again that I got two- one for my "stash" and one for the Original Farmgirl Friday blog hop's 100th Birthday Bash Giveaway!!!
Dolly is giving away an apron designed after one her Grandmother Me Maw used to wear. This one is called Daisy and she comes with a set of three Me Maws knitted dish cloths. This is just one of Dolly's quality handmade aprons. Be sure to check out Dolly's Designs Blog for more of her beautiful creations!
Here's what our loyal blog hop participants have to say about the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop!
Bonnie K - I love the blog hop! I have gathered so many ideas and recipes. I wish I had kept better track of the things I have learned from the hop. Most of the blogs I follow are through the hop. I haven't met anyone in person, but it has been fun following people that live pretty close to me. I appreciate that you host the hop. It is a great resource and much more fun than watching tv!
Junebug -The blog hop has turn into my Friday night comfort reading. It allows me to take off into dreamland! I have a statement currently on my chalkboard that states, "Don't Stop Dreaming, Start doing"! I read it every morning as I sit and drink my coffee. I may not be able to have the dream farm but I am turning my little backyard into my mini dream! I have met several gals from blogging and feel so lucky and blessed to call them friends now! As far as new hobbies, it's more renewed my interest in hand work like embroidery. I've always had a garden and my "girls", hens!!!
Deb, I feel so blessed to have found your blog!!! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
