Farm Chicks & Fun Mail!

Right around Labor Day, I received a surprise! I had an e-mail from Serena and Teri, The Farm Chicks!!! They were writing to inquire about my address as they wanted to send me something in appreciation for the link on my blog and for all of you who have visited through this link. Would you believe that The Homespun Heart was the number three blog for referrals to their website last year?
I have been ridiculously excited about this as I have long-admired these ladies and their fabulous ideas, recipes and shared interests! You may have seen this article in Country Living, March 2007, about the Prairie Party they planned for Teri's daughters and friends. This is loaded with charming ideas and I had torn it out in hopes of having a similar party! You can also find lots more about these ladies on the Country Living website.
This adorable box arrived in the mail on Saturday! And, look at the delicious card that was included!
It is no surprise that this was presented with such charm from start to finish! This is what I found when I opened the box!
Look at this adorable magnetic shopping list to further enhance my pleasurable shopping experiences! And, the cute recipe cards!
I think this was my favorite thing as I have long admired their vintage wallpaper necklaces! There is also a charm with The Farm Chicks and tractor on it!
This is the back of the wallpaper necklace, so great!
All of these goodies are so cute too! A bumper sticker, two tractor stickers and those adorable business cards in the shape of a barn and a tractor!

This was indeed a treat and so exciting! I will continue to share the fun and inspiration of The Farm Chicks and hope you will take a moment to visit their website (make sure to check out Chick Style - it is loaded with ideas!) and blog and find some great ideas and inspiration of your own! And, if all that inspiration just isn't enough - they are working on a book which will be out Spring 2009 - keep watching!
