Okay, here it is - the complete Giftaway package for this month! You already knew about these two items: But you didn't know the package will also include this absolutely adorable little pink and white crochet apron that was handmade probably (I'm guessing) some time back in the '50's. Isn't it cute?? The lucky winner will also get a little "bling". I'm adding in this retro spring-wire bead necklace (it's comfortable to wear and easy to put on because there are no snaps!) AND this sweet little hearts bracelet. It's not signed but I'm guessing it's probably retro, too. Don't worry whether it will fit because you have a large wrist; I have large hands and it slips over them! Good luck to all of you who leave comments!
Oh - regardless of where you live, you are eligible to win when you leave a message. So, whether you are in Japan, Thailand or even Nebraska (just kidding, Nebraska!) you are eligible! Have you checked out the goodies that Google has to offer? I've been loving Google Docs (access it through igoogle by signing into your Google account - if you don't have one, create one and play!) for quite awhile now and, just the other day, decided to check out Google Reader. I love it! You can list all your favorite blogs and will be notified when they are updated! My morning routine was to sit down at the computer and click on each and every one of my favorites, checking whether they had been updated - a simple but time consuming little task. This is soo much simpler, not to mention timesaving. And yesterday morning I finally downloaded their browser (Google Chrome). It took a few minutes for me to get used to it and am deciding that I'm loving it, too. I love the tab browsing feature that Firefox has but I have had major problems with Firefox crashing and don't even open it anymore. Internet Explorer is nice because it's familiar and "comfortable" to me but it doesn't have tab browsing and more importantly, it's not secure. So, I'll use this Google browser for awhile and see how it goes. And no, I'm not being paid nor even urged by Google to talk about them. I'm also loving this cool Autumn weather! It invigorates me; I used to look so forward to Summer but, in the last few years, I've decided it is not fun to move around my yard with my clothes sticking to me, frizzy hair and perspiration dripping from each of my cells. So the other day I was rummaging around the attic and found this old cinnamon scented broom (with the scent long gone) and decided to turn it into a really simple trash-to-treasure project that could help me welcome Fall. Before we go on, let's pause for a show of hands. How many of you have had one of these brooms in your possession at least once in your life? Uh-huh. That's what I thought. Okay, now be honest - how many of you have stuffed at least one of them deep in your trash? Okay, that was no surprise, either. Okay, let's do something with them. Grab some ribbon or a strip of fabric, your glue gun and your imagination. Here's what I did with mine: Here's a closer look: That's all for now!
