    Oh, MayJane these is absolutely beautiful! What a lovely set of handcrafted items you put together. I love the color palette and all of the intricate details. Thank-you for sharing these color photos and the entire set. I can just see you on a warm summer day all dressed up and sitting in the shade with a tall glass of ice tea and reading. True Farmgirl Romance!

    MaryJane, I just read my July sister issue and was delighted that you shared the latest Time magazine issue talking about butter. I had read that issue about a week ago myself and so happy to see that FINALLY the truth about those fake butters was brought to light. As someone with familiar hypercholesterolemia, years of medical advice has shunned butter or animal fats of any kind. At last, research is shedding light on the facts. There is mounting evidence that organic meat from naturally fed animals does not pose a threat. And now, at last the truth of milk fat and milk fat products having better health records than their artificial competitors is being validated. Plus, just in time for the publication of Milk Cow Kitchen! Making homemade butter has now been elevated to “preferred” instead of “avoid”. I love how this Time article supports your new book and I hope millions of people will take your ideas to heart and start making healthy milk additions to their diets. Perhaps your suggestion of a backyard cow will begin a cultural shift equal to the backyard chicken idea that has spread with great enthusiasm. Won’t Lehman’s will thrilled to having a stampede of folks purchasing their butter churners? Business synergy is grand.

      As one who has over the years fought her sewing machine, I feel your pain, Debbie! I finally bought a basic Brother machine at Costco about 6 years ago, and I am in looooooovvvve. And better yet, it loves me back.
