thank you Artful Blogging...and a giveaway!





I just added one more thing to my list of things I am thankful for. 





I received an email a couple of months ago, asking if I would be willing to be featured as one of the bloggers highlighted in the issue they were working on. 

I thought for sure they had the wrong farmgirl. I mean, really....Moi?? In the pages of Artful Blogging? I double checked the email address, and read the email a few times before I answered. And sure enough, as crazy as it was...they were indeed asking me! Exciting, right?





I am forever grateful to Stampington & Co. and Jennifer Jackson Taylor for seeing a little something in my little corner of the world they wanted to share with all of you. 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. 

You have no idea how you made a girl that constantly doubts herself...feel so very humbled and just plain happy!






I thought I would share a little of that happiness this weekend...I am giving away 2 copies of this gorgeous publication!


Some of my very favorite bloggers are in this issue...

Anne from Fiona & Twig 
Tracey from French Larkspur
Tricia from A Rosy Note

and one of my all time favorite photographers...


We are taking some serious eye candy between the pages! I am in good company, or what?


Just leave me a comment on this post, and I will draw 2 names Monday morning!


Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

 Have a happy, happy Holiday...and safe travels!

    They DEFINITELY picked the right Farmgirl, of that I am certain.

    Oh, and I get so tickled every time I see that pink scale of yours in print somewhere, like this issue, and know I was smart enough to snatch it up for myself when you listed it on Etsy!

    So proud and happy for you!!!

  67. Dear Mary.....I read your gorgeous article in Artful Blogging, and knew I had to visit! And saw your about me...and knew that it was about me too =) Living in the country for my first 17+ years, moving to the big city (because I really wanted to not live in the country), but now at 54 longing to go back (not completely, but close) to home! Congrats on the article...your pics made me smile =))
