Please join me in welcoming two new followers. Firstly, Flowerlady, of South Eastern United States
Flowerlady has a few blogs - they can be found here:
She is "happily married to my best friend. We've been married since Sept. 1969. We live, love and play in our compound which includes our tiny 50's cottage, a workshop, outbuildings and gardens on 1/4 acre." Your cottage sounds delightful :) And, Flowerlady does some wonderful things with a needle and thread - I admire what you are able to create, as my fingers could never get the knack of using a needle with any visible signs of success...
And, secondly, welcome to Kirsty of Bowerbird Blue from Victoria in Australia.
Kirsty "loves old things, and the stories that they tell. I am passionate about environmental education for kids. Just like my nannas, I feel most at home in the garden, hands in the earth, flowers and children at my side."
She sounds like my kind of lady. Her two blogs can be found at:

Welcome to both of you. I always reply to comments - and try to reply on the day they are posted. But, until my internet connection is vastly improved, that may cause my replies to be delayed by a day or two :) Please - bear with me...
"Self-sufficiency does not mean 'going back' to the acceptance of a lower standard of living. On the contrary, it is the striving for a higher standard of living, for food that is organically grown and good, for the good life in pleasant surroundings... and for the satisfaction that comes from doing difficult and intricate jobs well and successfully." John Seymour ~ Self Sufficiency 2003
