Goodness at Aunt Ruthie's Sugarpie Farmhouse!

Oh, I just love visiting Aunt Ruthie's. Ruthann Winans' blog, called Aunt Ruthie's Sugarpie Farmhouse, will make you feel like a favorite niece being welcomed into your favorite aunt's gracious kitchen, where a pie cools on the windowsill and the kettle quietly whistles on the hearth. The air is filled with the aroma of all your favorite foods, and you can hear Aunt Ruthie singing hymns as she merrily sweeps or washes dishes or tends the fire.

Happy sigh.

I want to spread the word: Aunt Ruthie has just written a new e-book called Watermelon and Fireflies: 51 Farm Fresh Ideas for Celebrating the Good Ol' Summertime. It is packed with recipes and household tips and fun family ideas, all explained in Aunt Ruthie's contagiously cheery writing style and decorated with her collection of vintage graphics.

You can learn more about this by clicking here.

Also, she has invented a free-to-join sisterhood called the Sugarpie Sisterhood. Joining gives one access to forums full of other sisters: homemakers! Hoorah.


  1. Hello Librarygrl, my name is sue, so nice to met you. I came from visiting Aunt Ruthie, and just adore her blog also.
    I read your last post about the guestbook, and thought how cute, and what a great idea, I now am going to look for me a guestbook to place in my foyer. Thank you for sharing.

  2. It's so nice to meet you. :) Thank you for commenting on my blog! Honestly, I don't remember where I got my CS Lewis quotes from. I usually just google different types of quotes that I am looking for and then use whichever ones I find and like! :) I'm sorry I'm not much help!

    Again, thank you for visiting and commenting! Hope you are enjoying your weekend! :)
