Now, I have another giveaway. So Much Sky, written my friend and former editor, Karen Weir-Jimerson, is a series of essays about living in the country, a topic near and dear to my heart. Karen is as witty and humorous in her book as she is in life, and she blogs at Cat Crossing Farm. Many of the essays were originally published in Karen’s “Slow Lane” column in Country Home magazine between 2003 and 2009. She currently writes the same column for Country Gardens magazine so you may be familiar with her. The book is warm and friendly as a speckled pup, and I think you’ll like it. Karen lives with her family on three acres in rural Iowa where they raise vegetables, flowers, sheep and chickens plus a whole menagerie of animals. Like me, she was once a town girl before she moved the country, and we both renovated our homes so we’ve both done the remodel happy dance when finished. Although, you’re never truly finished are you?

I have a signed copy of this delightful book to give to one lucky winner.  Comment below to enter once, and then if you tweet, share on facebook, or any other social media, please let me know with additional comments below. Winners will be chosen by a random number generator because I hate choosing. Contest ends next Wednesday, and I’ll have an additional contest for some Proven Winners® plants after that.

  1. Please enter me in to your contest for this wonderful book. I would love to have it on my bookshelf after enjoying a good read.

  2. Living next door, in NE, I also appreciate the beautiful prairie sky. I would love to win this book. Thanks for the opportunity!

  3. I love Karen! I helped source kitchen materials for a Country Home kitchen when I worked in Minnesota. Her articles were the reason I mourned the last issue of the magazine.

  4. Several years ago, I decided my stash of Country Home magazines had to go. I clipped my favorite pages and recycled the rest. Most of my clippings were of Ms. Weir-Jimerson’s “Slow Lane” columns about life on the farm. Somehow, I missed that she had a blog. Thank you!

  8. I am a Midwest transplant to the East Coast (Boston area) and I totally miss the sky. We have so many trees (which are great too) around us that I have to go to the ocean to see the horizon. I would love to read a book at the Big Sky.

  9. I am excited to have won these wonderful tools. Thanks Dee Nash for helping me get my gardens up and running again. The website posted here is a baby blog, just trying to learn the tricks of the trade and the art of being consistant and persistant in my writing. Linda B
