Do you love jars? I do! When I saw this post (with a Vintage Style Mason Jars giveaway!) linked up to last week’s From The Farm blog hop I had to giggle a little.

It’s that time again! What is my favorite from last week’s From the Farm Blog Hop? It’s a tad bit of a pot-stirrer, written by a dear friend of mine.

I have confession to make. I drink a glass of dirty water every morning. It’s not just any dirt, though. It’s DE, or diatomaceous earth. So, it wasn’t hard to decide on a favorite from the list of fabulous blogs linked up to the From the Farm blog hop when I saw this great post from Back to the Basics!
