Simple Homestead blog hop #166

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

Hi there! I'm always glad to see you when we get together for another linky party. Our Simple Homestead blog hop runs from Thursday morning to Sunday evening.

I hope you have fun exploring all the great ideas that are shared each week. Add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts to the party if you're a blogger (please see our simple rules below). I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all the great posts and ideas.

This week:

I've opened a shop at Amazon! I had so much fun choosing items that we use everyday here at the homestead as well as items that are FUN. I hope you have as much fun browsing my favorites as I did in gathering them together in one place. You can always find the link in the blog's sidebar as well as right under the header (choose "Shop").

You could win a package of seeds for your fall garden from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.

I'm cohosting another giveaway this week with nine fellow gardening bloggers, this time for Baker's Creek Heirloom Seeds. One lucky winner will get a collection of seeds for a fall garden. Be sure to check out the other hostess's posts too for fall gardening fun. Go here to enter the giveaway, or you can PIN it on Pinterest here and have links to all ten of the blog posts. The giveaway ends 7/30.
