Once upon a time I stumbled upon a blog by a gal called HomemakerAng. We had quite a bit in common so I enjoyed visiting her blog. Then a couple of years ago this gal and her husband jumped off into the deep end. They sold their lovely home, bought an Amish farm and moved in with the intentions of living grid free. I was stunned when she mentioned a garage sale where they sold all of their electrical appliances. I mean, I could live without tv, but my mixer. I applauded them for their pioneering spirit but prayed they made it through. ( I grew up without many modern amenities...I wasn't sure they knew what they were getting into)
Anyway to make a long and interesting story short, they are doing marvelously. They have even made up a smaller cabin where people can come and stay and get a taste of their lifestyle.
I would have gladly written about Ang and her family for no reason but now she's giving away a set of Tatler reusable canning lids. I've been wanting to try these. Think, reusable...I could save quite a bit of money in canning lids each year. So, although I would love to win this set...I would love more to have everyone go visit Ang and see for yourself how this modern family is thriving on their off-grid farm. Who knows, you may be inspired to try it yourself!
