Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop # 130 & Breast Cancer Awareness Month

 Is this the most beautiful jar of crab apple jelly you've ever seen? It's ALMOST too pretty to eat! I think I'd leave it on my windowsill as a sun catcher. Imagine all the daydreaming THAT would inspire! 

As it turns out this gorgeous jar of jelly wasn't made for daydreaming at all. THIS WEEKS FEATURED FARMGIRL Aura Moore of Sons and Daughters Farm blog shared her apple picking, cider pressing, family day out in her entry last week. Her images of a fun fall day out with her home-schooled brood (ending with them sprawled out on the floor cuddling their pet bunnies) tugged at my heart. It reminded me so much of some of our fall outings from our early homeschooling days.

 In reading her post I also learned that Tattler Lids is doing a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  35% of the proceeds from the sales of their PINK lids will be going to the Women's Cancer Fund at Munson Healthcare Regional Foundation in Michigan

I wish it wasn't so, but each of us are touched by breast cancer in one way or another.Whether you are a survivor or have lost a loved one to the disease. There are so many different ways to support ongoing research for breast cancer in your local community. You can walk, run, cook, bake, craft, and if you live by the sea you can take The Polar Plunge in memory of those who have lost the good fight and those who still " put em up" against breast cancer every day.

Aura makes her FIRST JELLY ( with the help of a farmgirl friend)  and gives an A++ rating for Tattlers PINK Reusable Lids!
Who else has used Tattlers Lids? 

Your farmgirl Friday hostess:

Heidi of My Simple Country Living 
and White Wolf Summit Farmgirl Blog
Dolly of Hibiscus House and Dolly is Cooking
Debbie of Farmgirl Unleashed 
and me of course!

Heidi, Dolly, Debbie and I would love to hear your thoughts! Be sure to get by each of the hostess blogs as each of us have different features every week! Whether it be news from home, or a farmgirl from afar!

Also, our thoughts and prayers go out to our co- hostess and farmgirl sister Dolly this week for the loss of her sweet mom,Dot. Dot was the inspiration behind many of Dolly's posts( like this one featuring her Sour Cream Pound Cake). I know many of us feel as if we got to know her generous and loving spirit through Dolly's blogs. We will miss her.

Such a pretty color in that jelly jar! My mom is a 30+ survivor of breast cancer....I am so thankful that she is healthy and has enjoyed many years since her diagnosis when she was in her early 40's. A big hug to all your readers who are going thru cancer, have come through, or who are helping someone else get through the struggle. Be strong!
