A Super RAK and a Give-a-way...

Yesterday the mails brought a super RAK from my dear friend Jennifer in Ohio. Here is a snap -

Jennifer knows how we have three fur babies and so included and wonderful keyring with and chihuahua on it (looking just like HRH The Peach) -and here her majesty is....

Just thinking "ya gotta piece cheese - so give that sucker up...NOW!!" She is a sweetie!!..... back to the RAK - Jennifer knows me quite well and also sent some handmade soap - a real weakness of mine - and a brochure from Historic Lebanon. Thank you so much - It just made my day!!!! That is one of the really great things about this blog stuff - I have met such wonderful people that I wouldn't have otherwise. The friendships I have been building within this community are great and I do cherish every one of them - another thing to be thankful for!!!!

I wanted to do a drawing/give-a-way and just didn't know what or where I would find the time - but Rico came through - he had a sales rep visit his office and give him this baseball Snoopy - Here is a snap -

Since I don't know anyone that collects Snoopy's I wanted him to go to someone who would appreciate him.... so if you or you know someone who would enjoy getting him just leave a little comment on this blog up until Sunday 12/7 at 3 PM PST - and we will haul out the BOD and have a drawing - I will announce the winner on Monday Morning - this way I can get him in the mail Tuesday and hopefully to his new home before Christmas - He sits about 6 inches tall.

I started working on the ABC SAL last night using the dark fabric..... I am not sure I really like the way the golden Scarecrow is looking - I love the plum colour but the yellow - I wonder what a green might look like or just a lighter purple????..... I think I may try something else over the weekend and post on Monday.

Thank you all for the great ideas about shelling the walnuts - I was just lol - as I never thought about using a towel - I had these visions of whacking the nuts with a hammer and having them fly all over the place - I am such a ding sometimes!!!! Now how did my grandmother deal for all those years shelling pecans and walnuts for the holidays - I know she shelled tons every fall because she made all sorts of candies....making - turtles, fudge, sugared nuts, and cakes and pies both the ton. Where did she find the time?

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend -
Take care,
