Reminder and sharing:

Hi Blog Friends!

Boy, it seems the days just keep flying by! It’s been beautiful weather here in the valley. 80’s during the day and cool 60’s at night. The weatherman said by Friday we could see 40’s at night! I’d better go dig out my flannel pj’s! lol’.

I have quite a bit to share with you all, but I want to remind anyone who has not signed up for my fall giveaway ~ you have until tomorrow to do so. I’ll be announcing the winner’s on Friday morning ~ yes two lucky followers will receive gifts from me~ .

You must be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on my giveaway post (a few back) only in order to be in the pot! Good luck to all!

Last weekend I drove the Rt. 340 yard crawl and was a bit disappointed. Most of the yard sales were nothing but kids toys and clothing. Nothing against that, but I was looking for good old junk!

This is all I purchased in the 25 mile journey.

Some old tin ware. Love the little horse cookie cutter and the round cylinder is Watkins baking powder. We had a nice day anyway.

I did manage to get some crafting things done too.

The Littlest Witch ~ pattern by Cats in the barn. It was a free pattern on patternmart. I love how prim she is! Very easy pattern to follow.

And I love this turkey bird! It’s the pattern in Mercantile Gatherings fall issue.  perfectly Prim!

I also have some Thank You’s to send out.

Y’all know Margie over at Hungry Hook Primitives ~ well I won second place on her hooking giveaway.

She generously gave away one of her rug designs printed on monks cloth. I of course love the design and purchased the wool and hook from Margie to get started on my journey in rug hooking. So when the snow starts falling this winter, I’ll be curled up on the couch trying to learn the art of hooking. Thank you Margie for the great prize and for all the time your spending in posting Tutorials for us wannabe’s.

Stop over and visit Margie ~ she’s a great friend and has so much to offer! She’s also selling beautiful wool and such for hooking and penny rugs.

Keri over at The Calico Rabbit held a giveaway for this Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine. This issue features one of Keri’s penny designs and is just awesome!  The magazine is full of wonderful prim projects designed by very talented artists and stitchers.

Thank you Keri!

I have some fall things to finish up, then I’ll be starting on winter items. The box chain stores are already putting out Christmas! Gotta keep up with the competition! Lol’.

Oh, if any of you are in the Shenandoah area~ The Shenandoah Valley Flea Market is having their Customer Appreciation Special this weekend! You’ll receive 10% off all purchases~ that’s where I have a selling booth and just stocked it full of fall goodies! Stop by if you can.

Whoooo, sorry for such a long post~ guess I had a lot to share this time.

I’ll be back Friday to announce the winners and maybe share some fall decorating.

Until then, Have a great week!

Blessings, Jean
