I have sent all the secret sister info out.If you haven't gotten it please let me know and I will send it again. Please try to send a suprise to your secret sister by the end of the month. If you have a question to ask, please send it to me and I will ask it for you.

I am not participating in this swap, but will be available to help whoever needs it.

Have fun ladies and let the stalking begin.


We used to do a secret sister swap that was much loved and I have decided it is time to bring it back. This swap will go from July to December, you will be expected to send a gift to your secret sister each month, it doesn't have to be anything big or expensive. A book you have read sent by media mail would be perfect. In between you can send a card or post card if you choose, you could also choose to order from Amazon, etsy, etc and have it shipped to your secret sister to keep them guessing. Now I know you can guess by the postmark, but a lot of us don't look, just to keep it a mystery. December will be our big reveal. You will send a nice Christmas gift telling your partner who you are. Sign-ups will go through July 1st. Your first gift must be mailed before the end of July. I hope lots of you will join for 6 months of mystery and fun.


When you sign up below, please add a few things your secret sister would love to know. Favorite color, food allergies, favorite season etc. anything that will help her choose thoughtful gifts for you.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.

To my Secret Sister - thank you for the Maple leaf lights and the two books you sent me in September. I failed greatly at posting here when they were received because it was in the middle of my mom's visit to Washington, but I really appreciated it! I'm decorating with the leaf lights this weekend and starting on the books soon!

Thanks to you my sweet Secret Sister.
I love the Shakespeare book you sent to me.
I just have to brag on it to my farm sisters.
I love anything about old English literature.
This book was published in 1938. There are 1,113
pages. The cover is a beautiful old red fabric. The pages
are bound together with white thread. This book is beautiful.
I will always treasure it.
I can't wait to be reading it by a cozy fire on chilly days this fall and winter.
Thank you so much again.
Hugs.

Dearest Secret Sister - Tuesday of last week I went to the post office to pick up my mail and had a package from you. I can never explain the impeccable timing and absolute delight of this package! My hubby had back surgery on Wednesday... it was a longer than planned surgery, and he had multiple complications afterwards. The book and magazine you sent, went with me as I sat and waited, by myself, at the hospital, three hours from our home. The Fall items you sent have added a lovely warmth and hominess to our home, which has brightened things up around here! Thank you so much for your generosity!!!! You are a true blessing <3

What a wonderful surprise from my secret sister. I received the cutest card ever. It is a pop-up card and when opened it pops up as a festive fall cappuccino. She added a sweet letter with it and a gift certificate for Starbucks. Yummy!!!! Thank you so much secret sister for your thoughtful, seasonal gift. It made my day.

I am a luckiest Farmgirl! Look what arrived today from my Secret Sister, Truly my favorite things! It’s like Oprah’s Christmas Show! My purple blanket is so soft and fluffy, I am ready for my nap. I also received my favorite Yankee Candle, Home Sweet Home. Oh it smells so wonderful! And a book called Seasons of an Amish Garden, it has 4 stories. I can not wait to start it.
I really do not like having my photo taken. If I look at the camera I blink, so I was looking away petting Heidi our Mama Dachshund, but Kent did not include her in the photo.
I hope when my Secret Sister reads this it puts a smile on her face knowing how happy I am with my beautiful gifts.
Thank you so much Sweet Secret Sister for making me feel so special. I am off to take my afternoon nap;-)
Oops, I wanted to let all our Farmgirls in Texas that may be a part of the bad weather and flooding that I have you in my heart, thoughts and prayers.
Please stay safe .


Big Hugs,
Debbie

Peggy Ann --I Have an old MacBook Pro but maybe the method is the same. I take a picture with my phone and email it to myself. Click and drag the picture from the mail to the desktop. At that point I change the name to something I can recognize like "Runner". Then write your message here on the farm and click on the little square next to "Message" at the top of the message post. That will bring up a little page that says "Upload image". Click on the "Choose file" which will bring up a list of items on your desktop. Click on the "Runner" (or whatever you have called your picture) and that will add it to your message.
Note: you don't have to change the name of your picture but I can find mine easier by a name than I can by the number the phone gives my pictures.
Give it a try! I promise you won't break your computer :-)
