  1. I like your art that you found, I also like your post about all of the farms and ranches around you. I love to learn about stuff like that. I have remodeled two kitchens. I now know enough to not talk about it. :)
    Have fun. Do you know who Bess Streeter Aldrich is? A Lantern in her hand and White bird flying?
    That is what I thought of when I looked at your top picture of Farmer on Tractor.
    I do hope you have read those books, the ultimate in homesteading Nebraska.
    Oh, I like Grand-mothering better than the word babysitting too.

  2. Farm Girl,
    I'm glad you enjoyed the art and the ranches I pictured. Yes! I do know and love Beth Streeter Aldrich. She is one of my most favorite authors. Have you read her book, The Cutters? If not, you must!


  3. I like reading your conversation with Kim. You two are favorites of mine. I love the art, too. I grew up with scenery filled with farm fields and country roads and I love thinking about my precious homeland. I worked at a helicopter crop dusting company and had nice chats with the farmers. Sending LOVE to you this Sunday!

  4. Thanks for sharing these prints. I really like the first one.

  5. These are awesome!

    I have been on the hunt for some scenic something to hang on our walls in this home...if you ever know of some paintings of great prairie scenery or other suggestions-I would gladly take it! I have been hunting high and all things old fashioned/country and think some prairie prints would remind us of how lucky we are to be stewards of the land.

  6. G'day Gumbo Lily. They are just great prints. When I looked at them, I thought they belonged to times well past. Take care. liz...
