Good, Clean Fun!


It’s nearly February and time to start thinking about hearts and flowers and smelling good because you took a bath. It’s hard to have a Valentine if you aren’t clean and you don’t smell good. So I am going to help you out in that department. For our Valentine’s Day Giveaway, the winner will receive a heart decorated basket with a shower scrubby and choice of two 4oz Prairie Blessings soaps. Yep. The winner gets to choose whichever soaps desired. Of course, the winner can use this as a gift for his or her Valentine to make THEM smell good!!


Our soaps are made right here by our hands (and with stainless pots and stuff) of hand rendered pure tallow, olive oil, coconut oil and infused with pure, steam-distilled essential oils, organic herbs and spices, fragrance oils and flower petals. Just leave a comment below and at any following posts until February 11th when the winner will be chosen. Good luck to everybody! (And if you don’t win, you can still purchase the soaps so you can smell good too.)

We Have Winners!


Boy, today started out a little iffy as our whole area was covered in a thick fog that froze onto everything it touched. The trees were beautiful displays of crystaline branches, sparkling when a tiny ray of sun would peek through the pea soup. Driving was a real adventure as bridges turned into skating rink surfaces and a two foot visability made one feel like one could run into the back of another car at any moment. The news said that we had over 100 collisions in Oklahoma City, but fortunately, the only things hurt were the bumpers, hoods and rear ends of numerous vehicles.


Valentine’s Day is almost over and I figured it would be the perfect day to announce the results of our Pie Baking drawing. I hope all have had a wonderful day. Poor Mr. Fix-It was so pleased with himself for ordering me something special (I suspect chocolate-covered strawberries) that was guaranteed to be delivered on Valentine’s Day only to wind up pacing the floor all afternoon as nothing came. I think somebody must have hijacked the truck and had a feast themselves!! I think he deserves an “A” for effort and a refund, don’t you? And yes, I DID see the invoice so it’s no “gotta keep myself outta the doghouse” story!!


There are always photo and comedy routine opportunities made available on this holiday, but today provided a chuckle for me. In the village-style mall at Midwest City, there was a line of men who were shivering in the 35º cold, wrapped all the way around one of the buildings at noon today. Following the end of the line to the beginning revealed anxious males waiting their turn to enter the Incredible Edibles store. I’m thinking that 12 noon on Valentine’s Day is a little late to be expecting a floral-like centerpiece of fruit for one’s lady love!!


Anyway, for the last three weeks, we have been gathering names and email addresses of everyone who has commented on posts over that time, and put them into a most appropriate vessel in order to hold a drawing. We had 86 entries for the chance for two winners.

I figured that a lead crystal ice bucket would serve nicely to give us that hoity-toity, high-society, Okie prairie feel and so all names were tossed into that, to be drawn yesterday, February 13th.

Of course, it snowed for added drama and so, with wood stove burning and Jack Frost doing cartwheels outside, I manipulated the most objective and non-partisan culprit I could find – Mr. Fix-It – to choose our winners. Doesn’t Mr. Fix-It have a handsome arm? :-)

The two winners chosen were Penny and Cindy (who signs herself as Herdog) and both have been notified. It’s kinda exciting getting to do that!! Both are very excited to receive their gift boxes and were pleasantly surprised at the last minute addition of an Oklahoma Pastry Cloth™ to go with their pie tin sets and “First Out” pie spatula.

Cindy is very excited to share her prize with her grandchildren. She sent us a photo to include. Look at those gingerbread houses!! Are they not adorable? Congratulations Cindy. And congratulations to you, Penny. Your boxes are on the way!!


And to everyone else, stay tuned!! There is a new giveaway coming up in March!!



Happy Winning!
