The Country Homemaker Hop- Week 6

Hello Homemakers! Welcome to the Country Homemaker Hop. If you're looking for a place to link up and share what you've been working on around the homestead, you've come to the right place. 

Pictures, recipes, tips, household wisdom, gardening ideas, barnyard stories, giveaways, and sewing/craft tutorials, just to name a few topics, they're all welcome. Chime in about what's going on at your homestead. Share as often as you like. I love reading your great homemaking updates, stories, recipes, and tutorials so please, keep em coming!

With St. Valentine's Day fast approaching I decided to make today's post about LOVE.  

I found a few items in blog land that I'd like to share with you.  I'm wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day.

Katherine, blogger at Katherine's Corner is hosting a nice Sweetheart Giveaway.

You can enter HERE and while there, be sure to look around her blog.

Katherine is the host of the very popular Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop.

Her blog is full of great craft ideas, recipes, and it's loaded with female ingenuity!

Next on my list of SHARES is that yummy SWEETHEART STRAWBERRY PIRECIPE HERE I found this weekend. 

It's quick and easy.  A yummy temptation in a pie tin.

Strawberries are red, sweet, and heart shaped.  They're the perfect treat for a sweetheart.

One last thing...  This week I am proud to announce that our dear blogfriend and fellow FARMGIRL Dolly of the blogs: Hibiscus House, Dolly is Cooking, and Dolly's Designs will be co-hosting The Country Homemaker Hop on her Dolly is Cooking blog.  I can think of no better place to co-host from, than Dolly's kitchen.  Welcome aboard Dolly.  If you haven't yet visited her blogs, please check them out.  Their names above are hot links.

To Dolly- I am so excited to be co-hosting this wonderful hop with you.  It's so nice to have found a fellow farmgirl with so many mutual interests.  I love you lady and I LOVE all three of your blogs.  You are one of the most talented ladies I have "met" in blogland.  It is truly an honor and privilege to share this fun part of the week with you.
