Love this book!!


For those of you who have not yet been acquainted with MaryJane Butters, or her magazine, MaryJanes farm, go here.

Now, I would like to talk about MaryJane's latest book "Outpost, unleashing your inner wild". I recently ordered this book for myself on a whim. I have her original book, and I do subscribe to her magazine and they are all fabulous. This new book, though, got my heart skipping a few beats. I really had no idea what it was about, but since I know I love her magazine, and all her organic foods, etc. I knew I would like it. If you are a farmgirl, or just someone that likes the outdoors, this book is for you. Her ideas are unlike anything you'll find anywhere else. After only a few chapters I was inspired to get outside, and do a lot of the things the book talks about. If you notice the front cover of the book, you will see a beautiful outdoor tent, which she actually has on her farm, lots of them, (I've been there). She even has outdoor spaces with beautiful beds covered in the most gorgeous linens, and you think you are in a bedroom, but you look around, an realize you are in the middle of the woods! It's amazing. Everything she does outdoors has a feminine, yet woodsy feel to it. Her little touches are so simple, yet they make something ordinary look beautiful. It's all in the farmgirl spirit and that is something that I love!

When I placed my order for the book, I also got some of her organic foods. I love making the bakeovers, which is something she came up with. It is an original, yet simple way to feed your family lots of veggies. My 6 yr old loved the last bakeover I made, and didn't complain once about the numerous veggies I had baked it with. You have to try the bakeovers!

Oh, and I was so inspired by this book, that I made a big decision. I made a big purchase...well for me it was BIG. I don't buy BIG things, and this is BIG. I am so excited about it though...I will have to share soon...oh it is so cute!!! Betcha can't guess what my BIG purchase was, huh? You'll have to wait till my next post! Stay tuned!

I too love YOUR blog & have added it to my blog roll! :)
I (we) have been praying & chatting (rather casually) about adoption & fostering and WHAM there you are! :)
Well, sometimes the Lord kinda has to flick me in the forehead with stuff to get my attention but this is VERY clear to me, we have crossed paths for a reason! :)
Looking forward to getting to know you!
Be a Blessing!
