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!!

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!

The Fed-Ex guy stopped and gave me this box from Connie! I my gosh, I was surprised to open up a Bee Happy Dance box!! Connie's daughter has a friend who is a beekeeper so I got jar of her wildflower honey, then matching bee themed placemats and matching dishtowel, adorable colorful face mask and the cutest red tractor card!! Thank-you Connie for such a lovely surprise!!

Have a Bee-U-tiful Day!! Time for me to make a cup of tea and try out that new honey!!

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!

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!!

Winnie is an excellent choice and amazing Farmgirl Sister! She is always going above and beyond for everyone and makes sure to spoil everyone she can!

Congratulations Winnie! I am so happy for you! You definitely deserve this. I hope you have an amazing month!

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.

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!

Congrats Winnie! Enjoy your month! I've enjoyed meeting you in person as well as sharing notes by mail.

I "Make Do" by keeping a positive attitude and the thought of never giving up. That has helped me reach a new level of peace of mind with everything in my life from my health to relationships and Yes, even dealing with a pandemic.

Through the years I have learned to go to the top whenever possible to get the impossible accomplished. I first start with God through my prayers. If he opens doors then I know to go through. If they don't seem to open I know he's telling me "You Can Do It" just believe in yourself and what I've taught you.

So, when the bank was going to foreclose on our house out of the blue and a scam. You might remember that happening years ago in the news. I went right to the top of the state government. Quick like a bunny, the bank was apologizing all over the place and fixed our mortgage in a flash!

Other times it's just with a phone call to the right agency to get a company to treat you like a decent citizen.

I've learned to "Make Do" living with my limitations since Lyme Disease 16 years ago. I had to wear a mask for my health and allergies. I had to social distance from those with illness due to my weakened immune system. I had to learn to entertain myself indoors most of the year. I learned that I could do things I never thought possible and one was hosting the farm girl tea party and meeting all of you lovely Florida farm girls in person. I will cherish that time always!

Finding MJF was a blessing too. It gave me a place to connect with like minded women when I really needed it the most.

This will always be a place I call home.
