Diva Farmer

My sister in law fell over laughing when she saw me mucking out the barn a few months ago but she much admired my diva gloves after I told her how tough they were.

These are ladies-who-go-to-luncheons gloves in their former life. I've picked them up for years at garage sales for a dime or so a pair. Way harder wearing than the $3-6.00 pairs at the garden centers, more comfortable to wear, and a lot easier to work in. Try it, you'll like it!

In my ever so handy beautician/farmergirl apron please note the red thing sticking out of the second pocket from the top. A $2.00 pocket knife; yes, I'm officially a farmer now. Also note the ubiquitous orange baler twine making it's second appearance here...much more to follow!

Great idea on those gloves - I wear gloves mucking , gardening, and doing dishes (altho I guess these wouldn't do for that!! LOL)
