Hi girls!

I just wanted to figure out how to tell all of you how much you mean to me, even if you're new and I haven't "met" you yet - you are my farmgirl sisters! And I am grateful for every single one of you!

But I was also thinking... Heck... I can't be the only farmgirl who feels this way! So MANY of us have connected here on MJF in such special ways! And ALL farmgirls are absolutely STELLAR, and deserve THEIR time to SHINE! ALL of you deserve to be FGOM, too!

So here's the deal:

Each of you please take a moment to name your favorite farmgirl below, and tell us why she is so special to your heart. Is it something she does? Is it something she has done for you? How does she inspire you? What farmgirl qualities always come to mind when you see her on MJF? If her name is picked in the drawing, SHE will win a special gift from me!

But wait.. that's not good enough! Because chances are, YOU are a pretty awesome farmgirl yourself and deserve a little sumtin' sumtin' special, too!

SO...

When you name your favorite farmgirl and tell us all the special things about her, I will include YOU in the giveaway! THAT'S RIGHT! If her name is pulled in the drawing, then you BOTH will win a special gift from me - to celebrate BOTH of you!!!

Let's call it the "We're ALL FGOM Giveaway!"

One gift for your favorite farmgirl - AND one gift for YOU!!!!

Cool? COOL!

Here's how it works:

As I said, YOU post all about YOUR FAVORITE FARMGIRL below, telling us why she is so special to you.

Entry submissions must be made no later than noon on August 30th.

Then on August 30th, I will write down both of your names and addresses on a piece of paper and put them in my cookie crock and really shake it around good.

THEN I will then have my hubby pull the winners' names and announce them on MJF! (GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!!!)

THEN I will email you to obtain your address as well as your favorite farmgirl's address.

Once I receive your addresses, your gifts will be mailed out to each of you right away!

Cool? COOL!

So, what will you win? Here's the fun part!

If you and your favorite farmgirl win the drawing, each of you will receive one set of the following two matching sets - one for her, one for you!:




That includes one of each of these for each of you:



- A Hand Dipped Fall Harvest Cake Candle by the Warm Glow Candle Company in Centerville, Indiana
- An Autumn Pumpkin and Floral Candle Ring
- An Alphabet Tin Candle Plate



- My personal favorite Raspberry Jam sampler from my favorite local berry farm, Sand Hill Berries, in Mount Pleasant, PA
- A Blackberry Sage Tea sampler from The Republic of Teas
- A lovely little Floral Teabag holder



- My favorite new canning cookbook, "Not Your Mama's Canning Book," by Rebecca Lindamood! SO excited to share this with you!!!

Again, your giveaway entry submissions must be posted here below by Monday, August 3oth at noon.

Winners names will be announced shortly thereafter.

Your giveaway gifts will be mailed out as soon as I receive your addresses.

Cool? COOL!

I am so excited to celebrate all of us farmgirls together this month! I hope you all are, too! I just can't WAIT to hear all the wonderful things you have to say!

Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!

MJF Farmgirls are the BEST!

Hugs and Love -

Nini,
I had a hard time choosing just one Farmgirl but I think I will go with Julie aka treelady. She inspires me to be better in my character and she shows so much kindness from her heart in her posts and in all she does. She is a true blue through and through Farmgirl. She is a good listener and always there to help. I just believe she displays the kind of Farmgirl I want be someday.
Thank you for letting me take part in this. You too are a generous, kind Farmgirl and I'm so glad to know you since being on the forum.

I am going to choose someone who would like that canning book as much as I would. Yellow Rose Sara. She has inspired me from her yellow rose cottage, to my kitchen. Thank you Nini.

There are so many super farm girls. There are two that have been special to me - and it is hard to chose just one. I have met both of them in person, and one has already been listed above, so we already know that she is special. I will select Marilyn - TexasGran. She works hard around her farm, does a lot for her family, shares great stories of growing up in Texas, and participates in many swaps in all categories of crafts from fabrics to paper to yarns. I wish I could get as much accomplished in one day as she does.

Farmgirl hugs,

Nini! How gracious of you!!!

Yes, so very difficult to nominate just one farmgirl... Every farmgirl is just so special in so many ways. However, I will nominate Marlene Burns! She is an amazing farmgirl, loves lifes simplicities, loves God, church and our children! (which are our future!)

They ARE our future, and they NEED us!!! Thank you for giving them their time to shine! And I think you BOTH are wonderful farmgirls, too! YAY! Thank you for participating!!!

This is going to be hard pulling just one set of names... I wish I had a million hours and a million bucks so I could make and send EVERYONE something special!!! EVERYONE deserves a big hug and a special treat! Everyone!

UGH!!! Nini! Making us choose one, of course I would likely choose you, and my sweetie Sara(already picked), but also Winnie, Red Tractor Girl, for her great seasonal giveaways, love for apples (now that's a Farmgirl!), and especially how sweet she was with giving my mom her precious crocheted hat! SO many hard choices, everyone deserves to win!

Definitely agree! It is very hard to pick just one. And I agree with every Farmgirl that has already been picked. So many wonderful choices. I am going go with my Auntie MaryJane! Without her none of us would be here together. She has so many wonderful books, magazines, food, etc and continues to keep inspiring so many. I love having her as an example and family member. When I grow up I want to be just like her!

Nini, you are amazing and so sweet! This giveaway is the best. I love how it’s so supportive of everyone!

Oh, girls! Winnie, Nicole and MaryJane herself! Awesome! I love that you have given them each this moment to shine! See how hard this is, though?! Lol. And yet isnt it just incredible to have so many inspirational farmgirls who lead us even higher farmgirl heights! How blessed we all are! And I sure hope you KNOW I adore all three of you girls, too! You three always make me smile!

So many wonderful ladies here...how do we choose? I will go with Grace aka Katmom. I have noticed that she comments on so many threads. When she comments, she conveys such a sense of love to everyone she corresponds with. We connect through our love of glamping. I want to say that I have been coming here for over ten years. I have felt more love come out of this forum than I have felt in my own community. (This could be because I am a homebody) Thanks for doing this giveaway, Nini.

Nini, this is so sweet and generous of you to offer a fun giveaway! Like others here, it is very hard to pick just one person and everyone already chosen are special to me too. So, I wish to add Connie Killarney. Connie and I have become good friends over the years and I appreciate her caring and trusted friendship.

Thanks Nini for the give away.

Ladies---I love so many farmgirls---all of you are great. I decline to pick just one as so many have been so nice to me. To me this is like trying out for cheerleader or trying to get voted to be homecoming queen---I find this juvenile and hurtful. All of you are wonderful and equal in my eyes. And ---if anyone read my comment about Donald Drumpt---My husband dared me to put it in there to be silly. SORRY! I do not do politics or care and did not mean to insult anyone. I do love America and follow the news closely and I listen to both sides. Love to all you special ladies. All of you are sweet talented ladies. Keep the peace---LOL.

Hi Heather! Thank you! I love Darlene! One of the all-time greats! Her faith and kindness has carried me through many times during this whole ordeal. YOU have, too! :) Awesome choice! Thank you!

Oh, Barbara.. I don't even know how to reply. This breaks my heart. I was only trying to give everyone their time to shine and express their love for our sisters, and share the joy and the love with a special giveaway. I honestly... I just... I am so, so sorry you feel this way. I wish I could make you feel better. I just... I just don't know what to say. I am totally taken back by your feelings, totally blown away and feel horrible about offending you with this. All I can say is that I'm so sorry you feel this way! I never meant to be juvenile and hurtful. I would NEVER do that! God bless you, sister; truly. My love to you, always!

Hugs and love -
