WINNER!!!! Giveaway: Sweater Shawl

Thanks to all those who did the “like” thing on the MaryJanesFarm Facebook page!

Before I tell you who won, have you heard the one about the cop and the knitting driver?

A cop was patrolling the beltway and saw a minivan driving somewhat erratically, so he flashed his lights. The van didn’t pull over, so he drove up beside it and motioned to the driver for her to pull over. He saw what the problem was; she was knitting! He motioned again, so she rolled down the window.

Giveaway: Glamper’s Calendar

Glamper calendars? Check.

Helping victims of Hurricane Sandy? Check. (If I recall correctly, more than $1,000 was raised.)

Giving away extra calendar. Check.

Loving the nature of a helping hand. Priceless.

I first heard about the Glamper’s Calendar from Kelle Arvay, Farmgirl Sister #4447, of Little Vintage Trailer. You may remember Kelle streaming in during my mother’s visit to the Hallmark Home & Family show last year. (Here is the video.) Kelle added her efforts to promote the calendar last November to help those that were caught in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Her picture (below) is one of the photos for the month of April. Va-voom, lady!

Unfortunately, the date to purchase the calendar has passed. However, lucky for one of you, we have an extra calendar to give away so you won’t have to miss all the lovely contributors and their vacations-on-wheels. Glamper chic!

To be entered to win, e-mail us a picture of your version of glamping to We’ll post some pics and from there we’ll pick a winner to receive the calendar.


Great Find (& not a Giveaway)

Molly, one of my graphic designers, SCORED big time. This purse, her satchel, cost her only $30 in a secondhand store in Portland over Christmas break. Good FIND, Molly. Covet. Love it.
