Thank you Mr. Postman....
Hello all, yes I am still here, and no I am not going to appologize for deserting you once again because I know you are all tired of hearing about it ;) So on to why I made this blog, to keep in touch, inspire and be inspired by others! Okay, so the other day I am watching my DVR'd episode of Martha, when I hear the mailman come to drop off the mail. I pause my Martha, go outside, and as I turn around to go back inside I notice I large brown UPS box in the corner of my eye. I was soo excited and shocked that I dropped the mail and ran into the house for a pair of scissors. Once it was opened I found a sweet handmade card from Robyn, my Halloween Hat Swap partner. I also found a cute Halloween inspired ribbon and as I dug through the seemingly endless array of styrofoam balls, I spotted it. Orange glittery goodness in all of its glory!! I picked it up and admired the details, the fabrics she used, the vintage childrens hat, and the glitter. Not to mention that gorgeous 'G.' How had she known I had been wanting one of those? Anyways I am proud to say that it is now being displayed on a vintage urn with the rest of my fall decor. And might I add that it just goes so well!! I cannot thank you enough Robyn, and I can't wait for you to recieve mine!
I know I told you that I would share a few sneek peaks at the hat, but before I got to take some close up details, I had to ship it off to California. So I will wait until I get news that Robin's postman delivered it, and then I will show you because I want her to be surprised! Alrighty, well these past few weeks (ughh... has it really been that long?) have been very busy. My great Uncles came over from California for the first time in my life, and might I add they are super-fun!! I cannot wait to visit them, and since I'll be in CA, I might just have to travel to some of the great spots I read about in Blogland. As some type of payment for my time away I thought I share with you some pictures of the hat Robyn made. Until the next time, perhaps Saturday (when I buy some pumpkins and those flowers I've been talking about) I wish you beautiful fall days and some suprises in the mail!!
ps: Did anyone catch Wendy Addison on Martha yesterday?? And VICTORIA magazine is BACK!!!
