Sneak peek #3, and Tomatoes!

Well, this is it....
The "Friday Finale" of my first GIVE-A-WAY!
First off, let me say that I've loved the comments from everybody this week- it's not only great to hear from all my special blogging friends I've known for a while, but I'm thrilled to have met some new ones, too. Chores on and off the farm have kept me pretty busy this week, so I can't wait for things to settle down so I can visit everybody's blogs!
I'm really happy for everybody that has entered, and I wish I could give each and every one of you something! But, since I have to pick just one, I've got all the names (so far) ready in my little egg-gathering basket. I'm going to make Hubby reach in, because drawing a name out makes me a nervous wreck. (I have no idea why I get nervous, but my hands will start shaking, then they will sweat, and then there will be a bunch of little pieces of paper stuck to my palm. Not pretty.)

The last two items are:







Item #5- A Pair of "Sunflower" Fabric Bowls
Here's a pair of matching fabric bowls with a bright, cheery sunflower fabric on the top, and a yellow printed fabric on the bottom, with red rick-rack trim around the edge. The large bowl measures 12" x 12" and the small bowl is 8" x 8".





Item #6 - "Ozark Sunbonnet"

This is from a great old pattern I found called the "Ozark Sunbonnet", copyright 1975. I love the old-fashioned ruffled look on the back and the large brim. This pattern is one of my favorites because you can also cut the pattern down to make a girls or baby's bonnet!

Well, there you have it! The name drawn tomorrow will have their choice of the six items from this week. I'll announce the winner on Monday. Good luck to EVERYBODY!


Now for some more big news.....
The tomatoes are giving the lettuce some competition.

The "Sprout Count" is now 21 out of 24 for the Brandywine tomatoes, 18 for the head lettuce, and 0 for the Bell Peppers.

Where the heck are my Bell Peppers?!

  4. What a pretty bonnet!
    I always wanted one as a girl. I also thought I wanted to be a pioneer. I know much more about it now. I like my indoor plumbing and a/c!

    God bless!

  7. Farm Chick, you do some nice work. I would have a hard time deciding.
    The tomatoes--again, envious. We must wait for the local greenhouses to put forth for us.
    Have a great weekend!

  9. Goodness, your creative skills are just wonderful, but those bonnets are the best.

    So happy about your tomatoes. Those bell peppers might be a bit lazy, but they'll sprout up before you know it. I was outside today and feeling around in the mulch to find all sorts of life just brimming beneath the surface. It was just the most wonderful experience! I petted on those little sprouts like they were babies. I even talked to a couple of them but don't tell anyone! LOL

    Wishing you a happy Easter,
    Lea

  10. Hi, hope your tomatoes do well...ours are never as good as we hope for..keep trying though and I really love the sunbonnet...I remember around 1976 all the little girls (and big girls) were really into wearing bonnets like that, looked so cute and they are practical too for gardening...
