Happy 2nd Day of Fall!

I was surprised "out of the blue" in the mail the other day with a lovely gift from Laura over at katydiddys! I feel so honored because I know she's been talking about wanting to give a go at soldering & charms & stuff. I have it hanging from my most favorite funky lamp--right on the little on/off switch. It looks really cool! Thanks "Doll"! It's really a cool swap--one that doesn't overwhelm me to participate in. Now, what I do is send Laura a gift "out of the blue" & also 2 other people. You see, it's a never-ending chain of happiness arriving in the form of a parcel, lovingly delivered to your recipient's nearest mail receptacle. And, in case you didn't catch it, the name of the swap is called "Out of the Blue". Who might just get a little something arriving soon... Or maybe not, so don't get your hopes up.

I wanted to show off the cute little pumpkin bread masterpieces. They are awaiting delivery tomorrow morning to the girls' preschool teachers & assistants. I'm also attaching a small card with the photo I took of Pazely holding the acorns.

I don't know what I'm going to use these fabrics for, but I just love them! The brown & red one came from a nearby antique mall. The reds & browns just warmingly say....Fall.
The other fabric came from Goodwill & I think it is so fun! I'm always collecting vintage fabrics & really have no project in mind when purchasing them. I'll think of something fun!
OK, tonight I am going to package all my contest winner's prizes! YAY! And, I'm hoping to have enough time to have a shrinky dink party. By myself. But hey! That's a good idea----gather some friends for a shrinky dink party! I just might do that one of these days!!
Hey, you wanna know something silly? It's 4:45pm & I'm still in my pajama's. Weeeeeehooooooo!
Goodnight my little blog-lets!
