Congrats Winnie! If you ever make it to my neck of the woods I'll let you drive a real life red tractor LOL!
(not the best picture but that's what happens when hubby has the camera)
As you can see there's no cab on the tractor though so you might want to wait until it warms up. It's a bit cold up here right now LOL!!!

Connie - you always find the greatest pictures!

Congratulations Winnie. You are so deserving of this honor. From left overs in the fridge, to sewing fabric scraps together for a new potholder or using baling wire to hold a gate shut we make do every day on our farm. Your encouragement is always appreciated and l agree with Heather, you are more than welcome to visit our farm to drive a red tractor. Enjoy your month.

Thank-you all for so many sweet comments and wishes!! I am grateful for such an honor as our FGOTM this January. It is all of you who make this place at MJF the community that it is. There are many many Farmgirls who give support and genuine empathy every day here. Without you and your gifts, we would never have this amazing place to learn and gather together. I am happy to be among all of you adding my thoughts and ideas. Thank-you!!

Look what I found on my porch today from USPS!! April sent me a darling apron with nice big pockets and a wooden spoon with FGOTM on the handle. I do a lot of cooking these days and I do love wooden utensils and aprons. They get used a lot!!



Thank-you April for your cute kitchen apron and spoon and you very kind and sweet note that came with it!! Farmgirl Mail is always such a surprise!

Wo knew USPS would make a late evening delivery?? It was my FGOTM print and a jar of MaryJane's honey from her bees that she has shared with all of us in her magazines. Thank-you MaryJane! We love honey in this household and will enjoy the golden goodness from your bees. I love that graphic label you created too.



Oh my Farmgirls, I am overwhelmed with all the well wishes and fun!! Best January!! Thank-you everyone!

Farmgirls....being FGOTM is better than a visit from Santa at Christmas!!! Last night, USPS put two more boxes on my porch! WOW, when I found them!!

Lisa sent me the cutest pottery chicken ornament/coaster of a chicken dressed up for Christmas. It is just adorable! Since it has some red on it and winter holly springs and berries, I am going to put it on my little everything tree which is currently decorated for Winter. Thank-you Lisa for this fun ornament and your lovely vintage graphic card!!



Next was two gorgeous embroidered dish towels with spring veggies!! Debbie, you do beautiful handwork and these towels are just lovely and perfect for our next upcoming season! Since I don't really garden(too many pests and bugs in our soil have ruined my three attempts!!) I love decorating my kitchen with dishtowels and other little accessories to celebrate the season and then go to my local farmer's market for the veggies!! LOL!!



Thank-you again for all of your kindness and helping to make my FGOTM special in so many ways!!

USPS left another surprise package at my door today!! Thank-you Heather for such a wonderful box of surprises!! There were some fingerless gloves that are oh so cozy and warm, some darling notecards with cute cow stamps on them, a strawberry dessert recipe card, two homemade soaps made from the beef lard of a cow from her farm, and the cutest pin cushion jar that was filled with Reeses heart shaped candy. Heather, you know you also made a certain Farmboy so happy tonight when my secret was shared!! He said < I love it when you get Farmgirl mail! LOL!! That is code for, I love it that Farmgirl Mail sends chocolate sometimes!! LOL!!! Everything was wrapped up and it felt like a birthday or Christmas unwrapping each little package. I am looking forward to putting everything to use right away. Thank-you so much for your kind note and all of your handcrafted gifts!!

You're welcome Winnie :) After I filled the jar of the pin cushion I thought to myself "I hope Winnie likes Reeses peanut butter stuff as much as her husband does". LOL!!! I forgot when I was getting the chocolate goodies that it was the farmboy swap I got them for before not a farmgirl swap :) I think all our husbands like it when we get some chocolate goodies in a swap.

Heather, Of course I love Reeses peanut bitter candy!!! My whole family does and it has always been a favorite in this house!! LOL!! Thankfully today they put Reeses in all the seasonal shapes and covers so they are now master of the many people’s favorites. By the way, have you see chocolate ice cream with Reese chunks in it?? Oh my, totally blissful!!

There was a knock on my door late this afternoon, and when I went to see who was there, a florist delivery guy handed me these gorgeous bouquet of flowers from Nini!! I was speechless!! Nini, the flowers are just beautiful and I was so surprised. Thank-you very much for your sweet note with the bouquet as well!

I am going to enjoy these beautiful blooms for the days ahead!!


A short while later, hubby came in with the mail and handed me a package from Julie. It was packed with so many wonderful goodies that included 2 cloth bowl wraps for the microwave, a beautiful batch of pretty squares Moda fabrics, a pretty pad with pen for keeping notes of things I need, and a chocolate/ginger bar. Wonderful!!! I love everything you chose and will enjoy using each item. My Farmboy spied the chocolate bar so we opened it up after dinner to enjoy a piece. It was delicious!! I also love having microwave bowl covers because we heat up leftovers almost everyday for lunch. The cooler weather the past 2 months has brought on a flurry oh homemade soups. I know the list package will go to great use because I like to keep a pad on the side of the fridge to write down items that need to be picked up at the next trip to the grocery store. Without a list, I never remember what I need to get!! LOL!!



Many , many thanks again today to Nini and Julie for such lovely surprises!! This Farmgirl has beens spoiled rotten this past month!! LOL!!

Today is January 31st and I want to thank everyone for making my FGOTM special!! It has been both an honor and a joy these past 31 days!! Thank-you all from the bottom of my heart! Since our next month only has 28 days, I am handing off the baton today. I am choosing Krista, MaryJanesNiece, as our February 2021 FGOTM. Krista joined MJF in 2015 and jumped right in and joined the conversations, swaps, and supporting this community. She reaches out to newcomers, helps with encouraging badge earning, sharing recipes and craft projects all while raising three young children and starting their new farm!! Krista is compassionate, fun, and a true Farmgirl at Heart.

Congratulations Krista on being our next FGOTM for 2021!! You are an inspiration to all of us and I hope you have a wonderful month celebrating with all of us here at MJF!!!
