Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter
there are always chores to be done in the garden.

When my father-in-law passed away, many years ago,
I became the recipient of his straw yard hats and his flannel shirt-jacket.
It thrilled me to pieces because the straw hats were wonderful for keeping the sun at bay and the flannel shirt-jacket, though VERY big on me, sure did keep me warm when working outside in the cooler months. 

Years have passed, and the straw hats have long worn out and been thrown away, and the flannel shirt-jacket is a getting a little ragged, so I was happy to learn about the Duluth Trading Company at the Haven conference this year and THRILLED when they asked if I'd be interested in reviewing a piece of their flannel.  Well, that was a great big YES!!!

This is what I chose and I LOVE it!

I chose the Women's Flapjack Shirt Jac which is a lot like the one I had BUT so much BETTER!
It is not like grandpa's shirt jacket because it's made for a woman, so it fits ME perfectly!
Grandpa's jacket and my new one...

It has pretty colors, fuzzy soft cotton flannel on the outside, and nylon quilted taffeta inside.
It also has hidden underarm gussets, a bi-swing back for restriction-free reaching and side snap tabs at the waistline!  See...

Those are great features, but they thought of EVERYTHING!  It even has an inside pocket with velcro closure for carrying my cell phone.  No longer do I have to worry about it falling out of my pocket when I'm working out in the garden...yippee!

The Womans Flapjack Flannel Shirt Jac is almost too nice to wear out in the garden, so mine will get lots of use in the cooler months as a light jacket and also to keep me warm while out in the garden.
As always, all opinions are honest and my own...I truly am thrilled with this jacket!

Oh my, Missy-Mae can't believe I headed out in the yard without her...

You know, this company has so much to offer for both men and women, and with Christmas right around the corner you may just find that special something for your special someone!  Go check them out, they have everything from outer wear, under thingies, gloves, shoes, knives, wallets, and the list goes on and on!  

Oh yeah, Ellie-Mae says hi!


Hope you'll come join us for AMAZE ME MONDAY!



  1. You look so cute out there in your flannel. I really like the look of that jacket.

  2. I LIKE THAT! I don't do much yard work, but I'd wear it for an everyday coat, since I hardly ever wear anything except jeans.

  3. I love it and the colors are classic. We don't need coats very often here in Florida so something like this would be perfect for the colder days. I'll check them out! Happy weekend!
