My dear Friend Mrs. M, her daughter, Miss C, and I were talking one evening about how we'd like to put some of the things we've been making in a craft fair. Mrs. M and Miss C had already checked into the entrance fees and found them prohibiting for us. After much talk, and sharing of ideas, they decided to have a Farm Girl Day at their country house. Enter my husband, who knows who's who around town. He called a local, famous artist, Lowell Davis, about using his wonderful Red Oak II. He, Mrs. M, and Miss C discussed it; and now, we're having it there.

It's going to be a lot of fun. If you live near SW MO, or just want to travel, please join us.
God bless!


  1. Ohh, I just love MaryJane Butters. Would that I could!!

  2. Sounds like a GREAT idea and what fun too!

  3. I can't believe it! You are only about an hour from me! Nevada is 30 minutes... Joplin is around an hour. How cool is that!

    This is such a neat idea and I hope it catches on. Wouldn't that be great if it becomes an annual event in your area?

    If you would like to enter... I am having a "harvest giveaway" this weekend on my blog. You can see some of the items I'm working on for my craft show in September.


  4. What a fantastic event you gals had! Our family enjoyed the Farm Girl Fest so much. I'm a photographer in town and had my camera handy. Getting ready to post some photos from the day on my blog; thought you might enjoy them.


    We're already looking forward to next year!
