“I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and the new.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
My oh my, I had so much fun reading all the beautiful treasures you bestowed upon me! I loved every single minute of reading those little bits of love...some were very touching, some were very profound, some were very sweet, and some made me giggle :) It was so wonderful making new friends and seeing some of the old ones too! What a generous helping of love and attention, thank you so, so, much!!
Now I have to say, Mrs. Raven was not very cooperative with this pulling of the slip, she had her own ideas on how this whole giveaway should go. She was a little perturbed since all she has on her mind as of late is building her winter nest, but I can't say I blame her, the days are getting chillier aren't they?! But after much coaxing she did manage to pluck a name from the teapot but I had to promise that we would all have our Autumn Tea afterwards :)
So here we go.... she pulled.... Down the Rabbit Hole ~ Selia!! To get the Winter Wish Banner ~*~*~**~~*~*~*~*~*~*
But Mrs Raven, was having waayyy too much fun.... so before I knew it... oh dear... she pulled another slip, oh my gosh, what to do, what to do?!!!..... I remembered, I have a JOY banner that needs a new home, ok... that's good.... So Tracee and Lilliput, I'm sending a little "JOY" your way!
But oh no, I went to put the kettle on and when I came back, oh dear, oh my... not you too Hannah?!!..... Alas, I have a few other little shiny things I can send to these sweet girls that I'm sure they will enjoy.... Paula, Anita, Viv, Lady Farmer, Diane from Diane's Musings!
Thank you ladies for playing along with me!! hehehe!! I truly wish I could send a lil' something to everyone...I'm sure I will be doing more giveaways in the future and would love to see you all again!
And to the ladies on the slips please send me your email addy to mine at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get your little parcel ready to fly~*~*~*~*~*~*
Hope you all enjoy your weekend and all of Autumn's Blessings!

BUT IF YOU CALL ME ANNE, PLEASE CALL ME ANNE SPELLED WITH AN "E."
"Oh, it makes such a difference. It looks so much nicer. When you hear a name pronounced can't you always see it in your mind, just as if it was printed out? I can; and A-n-n looks dreadful, but A-n-n-e looks so much more distinguished. If you'll only call me Anne spelled with an "E", I shall try to reconcile myself to not being called Cordelia."
You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ~C.S. Lewis
I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.~Jane Austen
One's home is like a delicious piece of pie you order in a restaurant on a country road one cozy evening - the best piece of pie you have ever eaten in your life - and can never find again. After you leave home, you may find yourself feeling homesick, even if you have a new home that has nicer wallpaper and a more efficient dishwasher than the home in which you grew up. ~Lemony Snicket
"The sweetest flower that blows, I give you as we part. For you it is a Rose, For me it is my heart." ~ Frederick Peterson 1859-1938
"I must warn you, Miss Potter, I am more than prepared to like you!" ~Millie Warne
I've loved creating since I was a child..I was blessed to have had very loving & creative parents ~ my father was a chef & the most wonderful of storytellers! Mom was an accomplished seamstress who loved making clothes for all the family & neighbors, a generous soul. They say that what one loves in childhood stays in the heart forever & that is so very true! I love hosting tea parties, gardening, painting & playing with scissors, papers & glue. Sharing is a big part of who I am ~ I put my heart into everything I do, whether it is friendships, crafting, or in day to day endevours. I find inspiration in the written word: poetry,quotes or a special letter from a friend that can make your day or maybe even change your life. I love beautiful music & friends like TiffanyJane who has been the encouragement behind starting this blog :)~ I'm married to my best friend...we love all things in nature but have a special place in our hearts for birds & butterflies. We love to go on nature walks & are always on the lookout for gifts from nature, whether in a park or a walk in our neighborhood. I'm so very grateful for my little fairy tale...
