April Country Fair Blog Party

Country Fair Blog Party by Country LINKed Welcome to the April Country Fair Blog Party ! We are so happy that you are here. Please take a minute to look over all of the great linkups from the March linkup. We had everything from recipes, to craft projects, to how to buy a bull, to fitness tips. You find it all at the Country Fair!

Here are my Purple Ribbon Winners from the March Country Fair:

Vickie’s Kitchen and Garden – Chocolate Gravy

Growing up in a family from the South, Chocolate Gravy was a staple in our diet at least once a week.   It was our Saturday morning breakfast.   While other kids were begging for waffles, we were begging for Chocolate Gravy!” – Vickie

When it comes to my seedling starters I prefer options that I can make or reuse rather than buying those plastic seedling starters from the store.” – Nicole

Dirt Under My Fingernails – By the People

 “To be twelve is to be old enough not just to learn historical facts, but to begin to feel a sense of history, to appreciate the past and compare it to the present.  To touch and visit our landmarks and monuments; to meet, even briefly, those who represent us and govern our country, is to become a participant in our nation, not a bystander, and thus to help bear the burden of the past and future.” – Julie

Just like a local Country Fair, we have friends, food, family, farming, animals, crafts, cooking and comedy!

Be sure and check the link to this month’s blog party to see what great blogs link up. If you are a blogger, then please link up to three of your posts. It does not have to be new, just one you love or one that you want to share.

Blessings to you,
Laurie – Country Link

Blog Party! Country Fair Style

Blog Party - County Fair

This time of year farmers and ranchers are either really busy or things are slow.  For us, things are kind of slow.  For my friend Nicole, Tales of a Kansas Farm Mom, things are really busy!  They are right in the middle of spring calving, she is working on Flat Aggie Reports and they have a conference to go to next week.  Talk about busy!  To keep things rolling on her blog, she started a new Blog Party and is calling it the Country Fair Blog Party.  Who doesn’t love a County Fair!  I know I do and I look forward to July every year and going to our local fair.  Now we don’t have to wait until July for the County Fair!

Here is how this blog party works:  Bloggers all across the country can post a link from one of their blog posts on Nicole’s blog.  She is hoping that others will post something in line with the County Fair theme; like a great recipe, a fun project or something that farmers are doing right then.  By going to Nicole’s blog, you can find lots of fun blog posts from different bloggers all in one spot.  FUN!

This week I submitted the blog post, “25 Years in the Making“.  It is a post from August 31, 2012 and talks about a project we built in the timber for Gpa.  For future posts to the party I hope to contribute projects, recipes and Farm Picture Friday photos.

Want to come party County Fair Style with us?  Check out this weeks party and check back weekly for more!

Blessings to you,

Laurie – Country Link
