Love Giveaway!

☆ February 1, 2012

Red dirt is red,

the sky is blue

and I want to say

thank you to you!

Thank you for sharing this space with me. It wouldn’t be the same without you!
And blessing you with my incredible poetry is…. not enough.

So, I’m making an awesome Valentine care package and I’m going to send it to someone.  Someone who enters this giveaway!  Just leave a comment
(only one please; I might not know if you enter more than once but you will)
and I’ll have Mike randomly pick a number on February 7th, leaving enough time for the Pony Express to deliver by Valentine’s Day.
Thanks, you.

ALSO, if your lady love is not the diamonds type, I’ve put a few Valentiney items in the SHOP. And some arrowheads I snagged off Cupid!

    Here’s part of a poem for Valentines Day. Its from a Michael Franks song:

    In water colors
    the lovers enraptured
    the moment is captured
    the faint light reveals them
    their closeness conceals them

    Something like that.
    Shreve-thanks for your amazing website. I read it every day. It makes my day better.

  86. L.E. Bradford

    Thank you for sharing your world. It gives me a few moments of enjoyment each day. Our puppy loves his elk antler so much, I let him chew on my grab it and stab it as well. My kids love the idea of the elk antler and the source as well. It is always inspirational for my youngest who has Celiac to know about someone else enjoying a GF life.
    Thank you again.

I read the book a few weeks ago and caught up w/your blogs from the beginning and i have to say thank YOU. Love the glimpse into your life and the lives of your farmily. You inspire me to follow my bliss every day. Feb. 14 is my birthday, by the way! Namaste

    Shreve, your photos are incredible, your lifestyle is inspiring, and because of your post about taxes I actually got mine done. Which is enough to make me a life-long fan. Is your book in the care package? Gonna have to get me a copy.

    I love you Shreve! I’ve read your work for several years now and you’ve inspired my imagination and motivated me to be stronger, more independent. I’ve tried things I wouldn’t have, had I not dreamt along with your experiences.

    Your cookbook made my sad transition to gluten-freedom much less sad. Your antler toy make a very sick puppy very happy, and the Stab-It made a tramatized woman feel safer in her home. What greater gift is there?

    Thank you for everything, Shreve!

    Hi Shreve,
    It’s very cool that you want to send someone a wonderful Valentine surprise “Thank You”.
    I’m looking forward to finding out who it is – and their response!
    Since I’m not online much, I’ll just express my appeciation to you for offering us so much that is unique and genuine – and to others for their thoughtful responses.
    They often put into words what I’ve thought or come up with something I never would have dreamed of in a million years.
    Thank YOU!

    I am constently in awe of you and all that is you. And to think you share your all with us.
    One thing I luv to do is tell people about you.
    I tell them there is a woman in Wy. who has raised a coyote pup, wrote two books, eats healthy, bathes in a tub of milk from her milk cow, lounges on one of her bulls backs, hugs and kisses them too! She packed in this summer with her farmily to live off the grid and did I mention she makes deorderent too. Oh and there has been so much more—I just want to share you for I have learned and enjoyed knowing you. Jackie/Montana

    Dear Shreve and Charlie. I had a wonderful time reading your book. I’ve read it 3 times so far. I wanted to share quickly – I live in western Mass. I live with my boy friend on property surrounded by state forest – HEAVEN. I”ve been here 11 years and have befriended a beautiful reddish female coyote. I can get to within to 15 feet from her. She comes to the house every night. If I’m inside she stands outside and barks till I go out on the deck. I have a young siberian who sits on the deck or in his yard and watches or sings when she does. I can relate to your relationship with Charlie . It’s a wonderful gift of nature to be able to share with them. Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and please give Charlie and big for me…..It would also be a great gift to win your giveaway. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  293. Chris

    What would be a perfect gift? A farmily portait of everyone, two legged and four legged. (with Mike strategically posed so no one can see his face. I know he likes his privacy.)

    When ever I am stressed out or too exhausted to do anything, I look at photos of the farmily and picture myself giving each and everyone of them a big hug. It is amazing how quickly it relaxes me.

    Thank you for all the wonderful pictures and stories.

    As a photographer, traveler, and animal lover it’s not hard to say that you continuously inspire me. Sometimes I get into creative ruts and I know I can come here or to The Daily Coyote and say to myself “stop this silliness, go do something!” So thanks for all the stories and images you share – it’s always a good thing to look at every morning!

    As with my #132, this is a non entry.

    A story that happened to me in Rockland ME. I went into a restaurant to get a cup of coffee and saw a woman wearing a Shreve necklace, I walked over to her and said “Ah, I see you love Shreve,Charlie and the farmliy” she looked at me and replied (with a huge smile) “Doesn’t everybody?” Shreve the world loves you, just read the posts.

    As a aside to Kristen #540, I will be your Valentine, I too have none of my own, that is if you don’t mind a 55 year old semi bald long hair from Maine. Ha maybe can add matchmaker to Super Shreves list of wonders! Barry

    Shreve, you understand this, maybe more than most,

    When life in the office drags me down; I think of the woman in the book “Cold Mountain”. If you’re not familiar, she lives alone in a tent/hut w/ goats. I think of her and dream of living in isolation completely off the grid. And then I come back to reality and visit your site for a dose of serenity. Thank you. For your stories, and photos, and inspiration of leaving it all behind and starting anew in a simpler way.
