happies and more . . .

And more happies, that is!! The first happy is this sweet little package that arrived in yesterday's mail! Whoop! I'd participated in a little Pumpkin Paper Pocket Giveaway over at Kids Napping? I'm Scrapping! I was so tickled to learn that the incredible random generator had generated my number!!

The package was *full* of darling little goodies. I mean seriously, look at all this loot . . .

It was chock full of pumpkin goodness!! Is that not just perfect for me?!?!?

There was also this very pretty orange and white grosgrain ribbon with a darling owl charm!!

And BUTTONS! More importantly, do you see what I see?! A *pumpkin* button!!


And the icing on the cake? A Starbucks gift card! I know, I know, I know that will be put to good use in the VERY near future!!


I also finally finished up Joc's bouquet of felt flowers. I had most of the flowers done (I did a handful more), I really just needed to cut and add stems. The little vase they're sitting in came from my Grandma Willie and Pop-pop's house. I love the flowers on it, and the color. And that on the bottom it reads, "U.S.A. 875".

And now for the MORE happies. I don't know how many of you kept up with the Ghastlies Blog Hop over the past two weeks, but I sure did. I visited each Ghastlie "sistah" in their rightful turn. They had some amazing creations and I really enjoyed it. There were also amazing ... and I do mean *amazing* ... prizes given away! And while I don't normally post something I've won in a giveaway before I receive it, I'm to excited NOT to share this win . . .

On the very last day, from the blog of Madame Samm herself, I WON the Reliable Iron!!! I'm glad I was sitting at home along when I found out. Because I made some very funny and strange noises as I rejoiced!!! I've wanted one of these irons so badly, it wasn't funny. I've heard such great things about this iron. Both HERE and HERE, too. YAY!!! I will put it to good, good use!

And very lastly (but certainly not least), I found out that I get to be a guest blogger over at Sew We Quilt in December!! I'm going to be doing a little Christmas project tutorial *and* there may a giveaway involved!! My day in December is the 21st. That gives me plenty of time to be good and ready. I can't wait!!

Whew! Such excitement for one weekend -- I think I like it!
