Mary Jane's Video




Oh, if you love Mary Jane Butters, you will love this video which I found by way of the sweet, peaceful blog of Clarice (thanks tons, Clarice! I'd never seen Mary Jane on video before--what a treat to find this!).

I discovered the Mary Jane's video this morning at 5:00 a.m. and could barely keep myself from racing out the back door (it was still black outside) to begin farm-like projects. To work hard. To continue taming our few wild acres into productive and lovely ones. (Perhaps instead of calling our place, Healing Acres, we should have called it, Wild and Weedy Acres. heh.) 

And I love being reminded that Mary Jane began her farm as a single mom living at the end of the road in a house with no plumbing. Out here, I need lots of inspiration and those kinds of stories give me boosts to hang in there.

I'm thinking all you farmgirls and farmguys at heart will love this video.

I bought a couple yards of black and white gingham yesterday and placed it over our table. Adds a bit of drama.

you are making your little farm a dream place ... all the pics you post are so charming!!! you hard working woman, you ...

at the moment i have a hubby who wants me to sit with him, watch the calgary stampede and is always saying "don't do that now, do it later ... " ... so my household is a little cluttered with many jobs to do - but i guess spending time with leo is priority #1 ...
