Cast Iron Cooking {And A Giveaway}

I love cooking with cast iron.  I grew up watching both of my Grandmothers and my own Momma cook with it.  As a matter of fact I’ve already told my Momma that I would like to have her cast iron and my grandmother’s cast iron willed to me!  Because is there anything better than 75 year old perfectly seasoned cast iron cookware?!  Smile!  My daughter has watched me cook with it all her life and now I love seeing her love and care for her cast iron just as much as I do mine.

Make Something!

My post today is about gifts.  As most of you know that follow my posts here, I try to gift home-made as often as I possibly can.  I really believe in giving from the heart, and for me that usually means making something!  Unfortunately sometimes that also means that I don’t gift to as many people as I would like.    However I’ve also noticed that even the very simplest of home-made gifts are treasured.

Hello Friends!

.

For those of you that have been following along with me here you probably know that I am a Spring and Summertime girl!  And every September when people around me are talking about how excited they are about the coming of Fall and how they love everything about Fall, I just choose to keep my mouth shut.  Because really, who wouldn’t LOVE Fall???  But I do not.  And the only reason I do not love it, is because it means that my beloved Summer is over.  And Winter is right around the corner.  So I go into Fall sort of kicking and screaming.

Back in March my husband had this great idea that he would order some Mallard ducks for our grand-girls.  You can watch the little video below on the day we brought them home from the post office!

Hello Farmgirl friends,

Hasn’t this weather been crazy the last month?  We are in Tennessee and felt some of the effects of both hurricanes and I can only imagine what it must be like for those of you that were right in the thick of it.  My thoughts have gone your way continually.

We have had such a gorgeous summer of rain, humidity, and beautiful days.  Along with that comes so many flowers that my daughter and I feel like we’ve been working around the clock to keep them harvested, the flower stand stocked, as well as the garden weeded and mowed.  We’ve been harvesting sunflowers that are 8 feet tall and our shoulders are just killing us!  BUT… that’s not what this blog post is about this month.  It’s about CORN!

My Favorite Thing About Summer!

It’s FLOWER SEASON on the farm y’all!  (For the new readers to our Farmgirl Bloggers site, you can read about my flower business here.)  This year we had some early blooming sunflowers so Tuesday, for the first time this summer, we were able to put some bouquets on our honor system stand.   Because most of what we have blooming right now are sunflowers, I walked through the fields on the farm and picked some wild flowers to go with the sunflowers.  As well as cutting some things from my personal flower beds!

It’s Porching Season!

Hello friends!  This is my very favorite time of the year – I call it Porching Season!  It is the season that brings the perfect weather for being on the porch – and I love that the porching season here lasts about 6 months!  I made a promise to myself during the winter that I would do better about porch sitting when it got warm!  I’m not a very good sitter, so it is challenging to me!  So today I’d like to welcome you to my home on the hilltop where we can sit and do some serious porching!

A sneak peak of the sampler lap quilt I made using MaryJanes beautiful Caravan Roundup Fabric (this is what the girls will end up with at the end of the quilt camp)!  This lap quilt just might become a give-away here on the blog at the end of the summer.  IF I can part with it!  

.

Happy, happy spring to all my Farmgirl friends!  It is warm enough in Tennessee to feel like summer is here so I’ve gone ahead and jumped in with my first Summer Quilting Camp Class.  Just in case you missed my first post about it, you can read it here.
