Giveaway: Made in the USA Sock WINNERS

Thanks for allย your wonderful responses! And now for a surprise … we found more socks! Willie had a horde stashed in his guitar case, cause, well, you know how he feels about organic, and farming, and warm fuzzies. So, six of you lucky ducks are waddling away with a pair o’ warm feet.

Congrats to:

Wehaf

Vivian V.

Angie McManus

Charessa Witham

Chrissy

Terry Steinmetz

(posted 9/26/12) Well, hey there. I’ve been wearing socks again lately now that my toesies are feelin’ a bit nippy in the mornings. These here socks, from Maggie’s Functional Organics, are sure to warm yours up. They can be yours if’n …

  1. Wehaf says:

    I buy products made in the USA because i want to be certain that the things I buy were made by people working under fair labor conditions.

  2. Vivian V says:

    I think it is important to support American companies and want to help keep jobs here, especially for clothing. I love Maggies socks! Especially the tie-died infant socks – my favorite baby gift ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Laura Patton says:

    I buy American made products to support my country. We have out sourced so many of our everyday products, we are forgetting what a quality product looks and feels like. Please consider purchasing only American Made Products and help our country grow by our own hands, our own strength.

  4. Amy Lindsey says:

    I think we should all buy “made in the usa” its good for all of us! Let’s get together and support the snall businesses that make our country great! Bring back the mom pops and start generating local vitality! We can do this!

  5. JenRowe says:

    I try to buy only American made, but its tough. I LOVE to find out about Made in America companies. Keep our country strong! I like to buy local too because it is very important to keep products coming out of our own communities. I’m tired of companies out-sourcing to other countries when we need jobs in our own country.

  6. Susan Hernandez says:

    I buy American made products whenever I can because they are made with quality and pride in the country where I grew up!! There is no quality like American Made quality. I would rather spend a little more to make sure the people in my country have a job to go to and can do it proudly! Bring more production back to this country!!

  7. Angie McManus says:

    I feel that so many big store chains have taken over and are forcing out the small Ma and Pa stores that this nation was founded on. Those big chain stores import most everything so can sell it cheaper. Our very backbone of America is falling apart because of this. And to be honest, American made lasts longer, is better put together and is well worth the price you pay! Let’s save our country from decline by buying “homemade” products!

  8. Charessa Witham says:

    I buy made in the USA to support our hard working small business women and men. American Is better quality. A lot of times local crops etc are used. My family is farmers. We see the importants of supporting USA made stuff. Better quality over all! Made usually here to last! I’m very proud to be American! Supporting our own country and our own people to help make jobs and help families thrive and survive. Many many times we don’t know truly what is in products that are shipped from over seas. I know I have problems with allergies. So handmade or american organics are what I want. I want my kids to buy this way themselves. We are trying to teach them that!

  9. Turtle says:

    because i would much rather support someone working hard in my own back yard than someone elses back yard! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Chrissy says:

    I buy Made in the USA everywhere I can because it provides for my friends and neighbors. And I especially appreciate organic products because they are better for me.

  11. Terry Steinmetz says:

    Buying USA made gives me control over what I support with our hard-earned dollars. I love helping companies that are home grown. I’m old-fashioned that way!

  12. Winnie Nielsen says:

    I try to not only buy made in the USA products, but I try to buy more locally from small entrepreneurs. Starting a small business is difficult so I try and keep my eyes open for opportunities to purchase first from my area. Secondly, I have experienced the wonderful gift of speaking with the person who makes the items and forming friendships. It is a twofer— great products and new friends!

  13. Brenda Davis says:

    I buy Made in the USA products everytime I can. But it is so hard to find them. They should have a “Made in USA” store that sell s nothing but. I hate everything coming from China. Made in USA is a better quality and helps keep America going and helping out the USA vendors. Thanks!

  14. Andrea Long says:

    I love finding out about another USA company, I always try to find the USA label product and feel it is important to help promote USA based businesses. So I’m off to find this company on the web ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the spotlight on them.

WINNERS! Glamping Book Giveaway #5 – glampin’ grins

This is it, my glorious glampin’ darlin’s! Our last giveaway of my new book, Glamping with MaryJane.

We all know how things can go โ€ฆ umm โ€ฆ not-exactly-as-planned when youโ€™re on the road. Flat tires, problematic potty situations, the wrong color nail polish. Stuff happens!

For instance … let’s say you’re on the road for 12 days (living large in your tricked-out Airstream) and your

  1. Laurie Dimino says:

    Funniest glamping story I have is actually a “camping” story. Back in the day before people “glamped” and when I was just a lil tike, my family would spend many many weekends and vacations camping on the beaches of Montauk, NY. Of course back then the adults were the ones glamping in the trailer, while us kiddos were sent out to camp in the tent. One night we had a massive rain and wind storm, and needless to say our tent did not hold out very well. we awoke to about 4 inches of water on the floor- instant waterbeds! The best was that my cousin who was sleeping in the same tent, was still fast asleep, and the ceiling of the tent was dangling about 3 inches above her face like a huge water ballon- full of water. She didn’t even know what happened until our giggling woke her up. Ahhhh- memories!

  2. Our camper was my husband’s work van where he made cut in and installed a side window and built a shelf in the front for our two girls and their sleeping bags. We slept on cushions on the floor of the van. I cooked in an electric frying pan…early glamping! All was good and a fun time but we learned the hard way that getting up early and on our way was necessary. The van was like an oven once the sun came up with no temperature controls!!! Our girls still talk about that summer where we traveled in style!!! Making memories!

  3. Judy A says:

    My husband and I were hosting a trail ride and all the motor homes, campers and horse trailers were pulling in during the day. I moved our motor home to be closer to our friends. Later in the evening we couldn’t get anything to turn on. The generator would not work. My husband and another man spent about 3 hours checking inside and out. Turned out I had forgotten to put it in park! Thank goodness we were on level ground! Needless to say, the guys were not real happy with me. But we laugh about it now!

  4. Camping with my daughters when they were little brings back happy memories, some quite humorous. Once,when it was quite warm, we had gone camping and taken some some soda pop in glass bottles as a treat. Meaning to put the bottles of pop in ice when we got to camp, we left them in the warm camper. Of course, the sight of the cool river water was so tempting that we decided to go for a swim before setting up camp. Upon returning to the camper, we heard the sound of small explosions coming from within. Opening the door, we discovered that the heat had caused the bottles of soda pop to explode! Oh, what a mess! We learned our lesson, though, and always putvthe soda pop on ice right away thereafter!

  5. Melissa Crist says:

    I’ll steal mine from my husband…he and his friend had taken our glamper (a ’68 Shasta) up north for some tailgating fun at a U of I football game. The fall nights were a bit chilly, so before going to bed he started the camper’s heater. He woke to flames in the middle of the night flying out of the heater vent. At first he was a bit confused (too much tailgating fun, and exhaustion had him a bit disoriented) but as soon as he realized what was happening he got the propane heater shut off, somehow without any damage! We absolutely love having the oldest, or the vintage camper where ever we go…but, it certainly comes with quirks, and lots of new camper restoration projects!…all part of glamping sometimes!

  6. Jessica Parfitt says:

    Growing up my dad loved to take me and my two sisters out camping. We traveled all over the US! As we got older it became very clear to my dad that he had little glampers, and no longer little campers! He married again and bought what he would label a glorious glamper with all the amenities needed for his girls. It was not. The first night we slept in it we could not stop ragging on my dad for how bad of shape this glampor of his was in. He wouldn’t listen and said we were lucky to have it, typical man. We settled in for the night. My younger sister took the bottom bunk and I released the cabinets with apparently someone thought could double as a top bunk. They held out for the night. Since my sister and I are always on the same wave length, we of course woke up at the exact same time. Both sitting up and ready to meet the glorious new day! Unfortunately, the cupboards didn’t hold and my butt went right through, opening the cupboard door, which flew open and smacked my sister right the face! Nice glamper dad!

  7. Karla Reinhart says:

    Once when my children were two and four we went camping up the lovely Oregon coast, had a lovely vacation in our trailer after a rocky start, as my parents were going but their truck broke down, so we had to follow them home in their trailer and they went with us staying in our trailer. Was a great time until we were about an hour from home when we had a flat tire or should I say a blow out that also tore our whole sewer system out. That has not deterred me from recently purchasing a new trailer with my new husband to start enjoying what nature has in store for us.

  8. crystal mcelveen says:

    camping in NY state, we ended up with an extra, empty tent, so the boys put there skateboards and as we found out later some snacks. We were just dozing off when we hear a ruckus, I believe to be my three boys in a tent of there own and warn them it’s time to settle down, when there was no reply I realize they are asleep. So I look out our tent and see a nose peeking out at me from the empty tent less then ten feet from me, I go to grab the camera, waking up the hubby who now investigates and tells me it’s not one but two skunks now to fat to get out the opening they got into and if I take a picture of them and get sprayed he will tie me to the top of the truck for the ride home. well, I believed he would so I watched from a distance as they ran round and round that tent, finally able to enlarge the hole they came in from and running back to the woods…that was only part of the events that happened on this particular trip, it was memorable…love your books by the way and can’t wait for this one!!!

  9. Marie Bucher (ReeReeBee) says:

    Ahhhh. I dream of days when I can Glamp! With 3 small children and a full time job, it’s just not in the cards at the moment. But, I can imagine, that when that time comes my knack for breaking things at inopportune times would hold true. It definitely makes for fun memories! I always end up rigging a fix with strange items and unconventional tactics. I am a park ranger, so I call it “ranger rigging”.
    I can already picture a tent fly rigged with pantyhose and flying kites with dental floss. My stories are yet to be revealed, but it’s the “not so perfect” moments that make everything exciting ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Cat Livingston says:

    Well, I probably had one of the first home made “glampers” around. My husband and I went gallivanting around the United States pulling behind us the back end off of an old pick-up truck, with topper included. We stayed in our little glamper for quite awhile looking for a piece of land. We felt so at home in that little contraption and like a dutiful housewife I would stay there cleaning our little abode, while my husband looked for a job. Being from Kansas we loved the Kansas sunsets, so one night when my husband returned to the Glamper I was in tears. He unhooked our glamper and drove me to the highest mountain around so that I could see a sunset. The next day we packed up and left for our home state back to the beautiful Kansas sunsets.

  11. Donna Ward says:

    One of my funniest as well as my most poignant memories is Fourth of July, 1958. My family loved tent camping, especially my dad. We had just gotten a brand-new, Ford Fairlane Ranch Wagon. With fold-down seats, it was the perfect camping bed for my mom and dad. We drove from our home in the the Palouse to the beautiful Blue Mountains of southeast Washington, set up our wall tent near the pristine Tucannon River and settled in for the night.

    My 13-year old sister and I were bedded down in the wall tent and our parents were in the station wagon. We had just gone to sleep when my sister awakened me with, “Shhh, listen…something’s out there. I think it’s a bear.” As older sisters are prone to do, I thought she was trying to scare my nine-year-self witless. We could hear scritching and scratching on the side of our tent and boy, we squealed.

    Our girly squeaks and cries woke our dad who checked out the area around the tent. He said saw nothing. However, the next morning we could see a nearly perfect circular, six-inch hole about a foot from the bottom of one side wall of the tent–a porcupine had chewed the hole in the tent.

    This camping adventure is bittersweet for me. It was last time we used the tent, but not because of the porcupine hole. My dad died later that summer–it was my final camping trip with him. I think the memory of the “Porcupine Hole in the Tent” was somehow meant to give my family something to chuckle about all these years in spite of our sadness.

  12. We didn’t start out to camp, but ended up with our VW Rabbit loaded with camping gear 2 adults and 2 children! We had expected to find a nice place to stay on the way, something that looked interesting. There was an event going on in the state and not one room available anywhere. We were getting ready to go back home. So Sad. Someone suggested buying camping gear, and camping out! Hey!
    We had a lot of fun picking out pans, pillows, towels, everything we would need to camp for a week. It was great fun to go around the store picking everything up & loading our cart. My son, age 4, got into the spirit of things when He saw a Swing Set. Dad can we get that? Dad “Sure put it in the cart”. Son saw it was a joke but it was fun. We had the little VW loaded. Amazing how much you can strap to the top of a car.
    It was the Best vacation we had!

  13. Eileen Stone says:

    Where did you get that Barbie doll w/ the really cool “updo”? And where did you get the clothes for it? It is MOST EXCELLENT!

  14. Turtle says:

    growing up and camping in new england… the trailer was for yard camping, otherwise we hiked in with all gear. We tried to eat off the land when camping, setting a crayfish trap, berries, fruits etc. Blueberry soup was a favorite… until you catch something while camping. I will not attempt to describe the sounds that came from the bushes that night but it was a long time before anyone could think about eating blueberry soup.

  15. Karla Reinhart says:

    I am so excited thanks Mary Jane I have never won anything before. ๐Ÿ™‚

Continue reading

  1. Beth Wyman says:

    Because I so love all your other books.
    I have all of them and your Magizines.
    Because I am at the hospital ER at 3:am with my
    Mother-in-law whose just had several mini
    Strokes. And she loves to camp and I want
    To fix up an old prowler camper she used to use
    And take her camping before things get bad. And we have
    Something to look forward to.

  2. Julie Kram says:

    I went to Amazon and pre-ordered your book because of the inspiration I know it’ll give me and my daughters and granddaughter. I’m using the “Outpost”, “Stitching”, and “Life” books constantly for ideas and thoughts and advice. I know the new text will provide the same for our farmgirl lifestyles!!! I can’t wait!!!!

  3. Julie Kram says:

    P.S. The 1964 Layton is raring to go!!!

  4. Linda Jenkins says:

    I went to Amazon.com to preorder because just the knowledge that I had preordered my very own copy of the book gave me such a huge sense of self & relaxation, esp. after 4 months of successful fire academy training. Glamping was just what this 44 yr old mom needed after keeping up with a bunch of twenty-something yr old guys. The many sides of me will be so excited to read the book especially after my own 1st Glamping adventure next month:)

  5. Winnie Nielsen says:

    I went to Amazon.com and pre-ordered your book because I have the others and I just love to read them and learn so many new things. Although I do not own a trailer and I am afraid my Prius is too small to pull one, I always enjoy the stories of all the adventures from the Farmgirls on the MJF Connection! No doubt this new book will be so fun to read that I won’t be able to put it down! Plus there will be new ideas to try and beautiful photos to inspire! I am excited for August to arrive.

    My biggest dream is not to own a trailer but rather to visit Mary Jane’s Farm and stay at the B&B!! I bought my first pair of cowgirl boots this spring in anticipation of one day going!!!

  6. Janet Doran says:

    I ordered mine quite awhile ago, just as soon as I found out I could preorder it early. I am so excited to get it.
    I would so much love to get pampered for a couple of days. The only time I have really been papmered is when in the hospital having surgeries. Visiting Mary Jane’s Farm is on my bucket list. I live every day with Mary Jane on my mind and all the wonderful things that she does and all the wonderful people involved with the organization. I will cherish all for the rest of my life!!!!

  7. Raynita says:

    I just pre-ordered your glamping book because your books and magazines make me smile the minute I touch one. They allow me to dream….dream about things I haven’t even done before like camping which never appealed to me until you showed me what glamping was. I love to have your books and magazines on hand for girl get-togethers whether it’s just two of us or a table full. Best of all, my daughters, age 9 and 27, dream together as we look through your books and magazines. I thank you for that:)

  8. Thayes Hower says:

    I pre-ordered your book because my best friend, who just happens to live in Idaho, loves camping and I am a bed and breakfast innkeeper who lives in CA. Our two interests make us the perfect Glamping duo but we haven’t had a chance in a long time to camp together. I’m sure this book will give us the impetus to get Glamping!

  9. DWanna W says:

    I pre-ordered your book because I love all your other books and glamping is sooo much better than camping. I’m looking for all kinds of tips for glamping in a cute vintage trailer (that I’m still looking for). ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Kelly T. told me all about you. I am so excited for the book!

  11. April says:

    I have been so excited about the prospect of finding my own camper to glam up. So while I’m still in dream mode, I thought your book would be excellent in helping me dream even more! I’m excited about glamping in a tent for the first time in September!

    • MaryJane says:

      Your upcoming glamping gathering sounds like the place to be. Should we send cut-outs if we can’t make it:)?

  12. Teree says:

    Without any hesitation I preordered your book at Amazon.com because I LoVe
    EVerYthinG MaRy JaNe!! You put a smile on my face EveRyDaY…I read your magazines, your books, your blog’s and newsletter’s and I follow you on Pinterest and like you on Facebook! I’m proud to be a FaRm GiRL at HeArT #2548! I collect your recipes and cook and clean like you…heck…I even dress like You!! Seriously can’t wait for this book because I know I won’t be disappointed! I look forward to the day I can road trip or glamp up your way to meet ya or at least visit your store. Thanks for inspiring my world. xoxo

  13. Jen in TX says:

    I pre-ordered it back on May 23rd after reading about it on the Farmgirl Connection. I have all your other books, so I wanted my collection to be complete. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Linda Boyd says:

    I ordered your book because I’ve got all your books and would love to come with my hubby and stay at your B&B!!!! Oh please pick me! I love you!

  15. Sara Laughlin says:

    I ordered the book because years ago I stumbled upon an article about your Glamper and have been dreaming ever since of having my own Glamper. I’ve been collecting dishes for it for a while. I know some one in my neighborhood who has already became a Glamper and I am looking forward to the day when I finally am able to join the ranks. This will give me further inspiration and courage to take the step of being good to myself sometimes, as well as inspiration of what I want to do with my rig once I find it.
    You are a woman after my own heart. From the desert city farmgirl at heart.

  16. Marlene Gaige says:

    Because you and Meg are the most gracious people we have ever met!

  17. Rise Tiller says:

    I love everything Mary Jane – every book and magazine gives me a renewed feeling for living life. Thanks for all you do.

  18. Wanda Sue Aldridge says:

    I pre-ordered my book, and can hardly wait to read it. We have an older camper that needs some help, and I am sure there will be plenty of ideas. I have been glamping a few years and didn’t know there was a name for it. My husband always laughs at the flowers I always put on the table. Thank you for the inspiration!

  19. Vivian Varela says:

    Actually, I won’t buy books from Amazon; but I have pre-ordered a copy through my local independent bookstore, Mendocino Book Company! I love camping and am seriously considering buying a small tent trailer to get a little more comfort than my current 2-person tent ๐Ÿ™‚ Your book will inspire me to create a wonderful camping experience for me and my dog!

  20. Laurie Dimino says:

    I pre-ordered two copies of your latest book…one for me and one to give as a gift to my sister. I am so excited! I have all 3 of your other books, which I just love, and of course I subscribe to your magazine, raising jane and all things Mary Jane. I just can’t get enough of you and all that you represent. Since discovering Mary Janes Farm about 3 years ago, my life has been truly changed for the better. The “sisterhood” is a wonderful community of like minded gals, and I have made so many friends through swaps, barters, and RAOK’s that I will be forever thankful!
    Staying at your B&B is on my bucket list of things to do before I turn 50 in a few years, so needless to say I would just LOVE to win this amazing prize!
    Thank you for the opportunity…I have my fingers and toes crossed twice over~

    Hugs,
    Laurie

  21. Denise says:

    I pre-ordered your book back in May. We sold our large camper and I have been talking about and hoping to find get little camper and glamp it up. I thought your book might give me some inspiration and help me to learn more about this glamping. This giveaway is very generous and I am so excited to have an opportunity to visit.

    Denise

  22. Daizy Bailes says:

    Why? Coz Mz MaryJane is MY SISTA FROM ANOTHER MOTHER!!!! I live all things MaryJane – you are such an inspiration to me and my world…..I smell the Idaho soil when I’m with you – even thru your words !!! More MAryJane …. Any time!!

  23. Hi MaryJane! I pre-ordered your book because of the respite I know it will provide from my everyday, chaotic job. I know I’ll be inspired! Can’t wait!

    Love,
    Ali ~ Farmgirl 12

  24. Sara Thompson says:

    Because I can’t wait to try some glamping myself.

  25. Vickie Hill says:

    Can’t wait to read the new book! Mary Jane, take me away!

  26. Beth Johnson says:

    I was raised an Alaskan farmgirl, and although I am no longer living on the farm, in my heart I will ALWAYS be a farmgirl, through & through. From the expanding hillside garden in my back yard, to the clothesline that I insist on using all year round even if there is just a mere hint of sunshine — I love simplicity, and your books and magazines encourage that. I love them all, and look forward to reading this one!

  27. JoAnn Groth says:

    preorder the book when I first heard about it. I have slept on the trampoline on the farm and in upstairs of the bunkhouse/kitchen (at the first Farmgirl campout) I think now is the time to sleep in the wall tent: ) JoAnn

  28. CJ says:

    I went to Amazon and pre-ordered a long time . . . holding my breath! I LOVE YOUR BOOKS and wanted to NOT miss the opportunity to pre-order your book. In fact, I ordered two, one for my “Birdie” as well.
    As you know, we’re “hooked” on glamping! We are the “4871 Glamping Farmgirls”!!!
    We’re all about the adventure, the experience, the fun, the frills, lace and “fluff”! We are getting ready for another adventure . . . ROCK ON!!!
    Thanks Mary Jane for the opportunity!
    CJ

  29. Mary Sue W says:

    I’m pre-ordering your book because I love you Outpost book and your Ideabook. Plus I much prefer “Glamping” of my boys idea of camping. Thanks for inspiring me.

  30. Zoe Siperly says:

    I’ve had mine on order for months and can’t wait to add it to the library in my glamper!! I’m hoping [praying] that I am able to come visit you in person!!
    Thanks for sharing another bit of your life with us!! Blessings Zoe #2262

  31. Elizabeth Mason says:

    I have preordered your glamping book from Amazon because I am an Amazon addict, and am also addicted to curling up with your magazine. It’s just like snuggling down with my favorite blankie! The idea of glamping has been with me since you featured it in your magazine, and I so look forward to discovering all the motivation and information in this book!!

  32. Diann says:

    I have the behemouth camper and a vision for the “revision” and a name……Sassy Sister!

  33. Kim Stotts says:

    I actually went to amazon.com and ordered the book before I even heard about the giveaway! I found Mary Janes Farm and all things farmgirl while I was out in California trying to settle my parents’ estate, sell their house, and tie up all the loose ends. I was so missing my home in Colorado but discovered “Mary Jane” at Barnes & Noble in Glendora, CA. All of a sudden, I was transported back to my home in nature – and being a Sister On The Fly (#1999) – I really appreciated seeing Mary Jane’s teardrop trailer! Can’t wait for the book!!!

  34. Sue Baadsgaard says:

    I love the idea of glamping – all the joys of camping combined with the creature comforts that we have come to expect.

  35. Mary Alice Baer says:

    I pre-ordered your book before you posted the Glamping Contest…but here is my reason for ordering it…I use to camp all the time, was made fun of because I liked to “dress up” the camp site…then after twenty years of marriage…I was divorced…no more camping…Now, my ex-sister in law is basically going through the same thing and we’ve been trying to figure out a “girls weekend” to just CHILL…Glamping would be wonderful and refreshing…and even if I don’t get chosen for the pampering…I’ll still enjoy your book as I have your other books, your magazine and the website. Thanks and Many Blessings. Mary Alice

  36. Sue M. says:

    I have all your other books and just pre-orered the book as a gift for a girl friend who has a vintage trailer…she’s going to love it! Would love to win your generous giveaway to your B & B…thanks for the opportunity.

  37. Maryann Fox says:

    I couldn’t wait to order the Glamping book from Amazon! My husband and I are so interested in buying an older 60’s trailer and fixing it up. We knew there would be great ideas in your new book. We have already starting looking and can’t wait to start collecting all the goodies to put inside. Waiting till Sept. 1 will be the hard part! I can’t tell you how much I enjoy your magazine and getting to know so many wonderful farmgirls. It has been a joy! Each issue has new things for me to think about and things to try. I have purchased many subscriptions for friends and relatives because I know they will love it too. You put your heart into it and it shows. Needless to say…I am so looking forward to the Glamping book coming in the mail.

  38. hobbit says:

    I’ve been following Mary Jane like a little lost puppy for quite some time.Friends often ask if I brought my farming bible with me,as I am rarely out and about “sans” Mary Jane info. The trip would be a great surprise for my daughter whose husband recently decided to let go of the wheel(his wife) and see where life takes him. Really? She has thrown herself into life and added,”seeing and discovering one new state every year.” She just came back from Nashville Tenn. and has been bubbling over about the things she saw and heard and so much more. I think Idaho would be a wonderful place for her to visit……….Don’t you?

    I have loved vintage trailers for 30 years! Had one years back that my EX-husband made me sell. Have been looking for another since before I heard about glamping. I have all your books and just get such a good feeling from them. I am from the Oregon Desert, and have had 2 neices go to college in Moscow, now a nephew will be there. Have wanted to visit Mary Jane’s farm since I heard about it.

  41. Janine Newby says:

    Because I love all of your other books and love the idea of traveling the roads with a little, tiny teardrop trailer. (there is one down the street that needs revamping that I have my eye on!)

    Can’t wait for the book!

  42. Jenny Pipes says:

    I am so excited for this new book and could hardly wait to pre-order. I LOVE camping and as I get older I sure appreciate the idea of “glamping”!!! I have a dream of a little teardrop trailer someday and camping with my daughters and girlfriends..what fun!
    You are such an inspiration and I have loved each book and magazine so much!
    My dream is to someday visit your farm and stay at your b and b.

    after seeing the magazine I couldn’t stand it! have to have the book! the little ’60’s tear drop in my back yard is destined for a make over!

    I went to Amazon and pre-ordered Glamping for I can’t wait to read it and Amazon make it so easy! I have all of Mary Jane’s books so I NEED this one!

  45. Christine says:

    Are you kidding?!?! There’s not a Mary Jane book or magazine I haven’t read yet!!!!

    Enjoy your magazine…raised a farm girl and am living the dream on 4 acres of my own, with the love of my life. After retirement plan to get a few chickens and such and re-learn the art of stocking-up like I did in my 20’s and 30’s. How did I ever have the time when my three kids were small??? Keep the great info coming my way.

  47. Deborah Robinson says:

    I per-ordered two copies; one for me & one for my best friend, Beth. Both of us fantasize about hitting the road and what better why than Glamping! Love your books & magazine!

  48. Susan peters says:

    Because I love the photos and your country girl attitude!!!

  49. Jamie Zorn says:

    I go camping for a week with my son’s boy scout troop every summer. I am one of the few parents willing and/or able to take a week off from work to go with them. Every year I happily sleep in my tent. This year one of the Assistant Scoutmasters brings his camper trailer and invites the other two men to sleep in it. I gave them alot of grief about the sleeping arrangements.

    When I got home, what is in my mailbox? My beloved issue of MaryJanes Farm! And what is on the cover? Glamping! At that moment I knew what I would be doing during the next year. Searching for, purchasing and glamming my own little camping oasis! Look out Camp Raymond, I will arriving in style next year.

    I await my handbook ~ I’m so glad I get one-day shipping from Amazon.

    Because I love the magazines, because I love the aprons & cowgirl boots, because I am a Mary Janes Farmgirl!!
