Farmgirl Friday blog hop # 2

Welcome to Farmgirl Friday blog hop #2 !

We had a great time last week topping out at 12 entries for the first week! We learned how to build a Potato Condo made from wooden pallets and nourish our winter weary bodies with a natural remedy drink from Corn in my Coffee Pot. Pamela from Backwoods Cottage featured her beautiful brilliant blue delphinium's and Tilly's Nest gave us a sneak peak of her spring chicks and Happy Mama shared the blessings of her garden. We enjoyed Mary Beth's fresh baked bread, and got an eye full of some pretty and cute aprons thanks to Amy of Homestead Revival and Grammies Heirlooms! Marcia's Hafflingers, and Hopscotch Dandelions Palomino stole my heart.

Thank you to everyone who entered and clicked the follow button too! I really enjoyed making the rounds to see everyone!
 It was hard to choose who to feature this week mostly because I loved each and every entry and I just hate to leave anyone out! Drum roll please.... Here are the featured farmgirls for this week!

Farmgirl Faith over at Crochet by the Sea creates crochet treasures that remind me a lot of those my mom and Grandmother used to make. It's so nice to see that this handi- craft is still being expressed today and Faith does it so beautifully.

 Did you make it by to meet Taso of the Y Not Homestead ? Her entry was titled " A Different Solar Life" and since we spend part of each summer in a solar powered beach cottage I was happy to meet this ambitious family homesteading in Arizona. Coming from the dry arid west myself ( Northern Nevada) I could relate to some of their gardening challenges, and also the dream of having a high desert homestead off-grid.
They are doing an amazing job of making their dream a living reality!  How would you like to call this the road home?

Now it's time to flaunt your farmgirl spirit!  

Farmgirls love anything to do with making things with their hands, keeping chicken's, embroidering, sewing, knitting, spinning, quilting, natural home remedies for health care and cleaning, horses, goats, cows, organic gardening and cooking, caring for their loved ones and friends and are community minded. Re-purposing and UP-cycling are high on their list of " fun things to do too"! They are enterprising and creative! Many of us love being part of the amazing MJF farmgirl sisterhood, earning merit badges, and chatting on the farmgirl forum too!

Hi Deb,

I love to make these for the same reason, it evokes a simpler, more loving and charming time. It makes me happy. Thanks for hosting the blog much fun to read all the farm girls to a wanna be like me. Blessings for your day..
