Farmgirl Tales Begin Here

"A Farmgirl is a condition from the heart"

Well, yesterday, I stumbled upon a site called Mary Jane's Farmgirl Connection. Here in this group of creative, hard-working and inspiring women, they share one common bond -"being a Farmgirl at heart".....no matter where you may be.

What exactly is a Farmgirl? A quote from the website: What is a Farmgirl? To quote the back of our Farmgirl Chapter information cards, “A Farmgirl believes in the strong arms of friendship, community, and the just plain fun of being together. A Farmgirl takes joy in the quiet satisfaction of making things with her own hands. She exudes kindness, grace, humility, gentleness, patience, and generosity, and loves the simple pleasures in life. Farmgirls love to get together to share their ideas.”

After looking at the many colorful and neat looking aprons that many of the ladies create, I am so happy that I was able to find one that my grandmother had...it was her Aunt Ruth's....I just LOVE the colors. I plan to one day make some aprons myself.

In short, being inspired by this Farmgirl sisterhood, I decided to create a new blog to just focus on my Farmgirl encounters and experiences....tales according to a Farmgirl from the country who is living in a central Ohio city.
