Elyse came to Visit!!!....and FINALLY the Giveaway in honor of her visit!!...


Gloomy day here...perfect for sewing and blogging...hmmmm...and making Tollhouse Cookies!...YUM!!!!...Ah...the perks (or dangers!!!) of working at home...Such Heaven!...
I had a really fun weekend!...The Adorable Elyse and her Sweet Sister Betsy traveled to the Cape for a girlie weekend and stopped by for a visit!...but first they stopped in down the road (up the road??) at Marilee's Lovely Shop Rose Briar Studio!!...Check out Elyse's blog Cottage for some great pictures of Marilee's Shop!...http://tinkeredtreasures.blogspot.com/...(I LOVE those Vintage Wedding Girls in the pic! I'm going to have to stay away!!)...
Then they stopped in to see me!!...YIPPEE!!!...Elyse brought me a Package of her Sweet Little Treasures!!!...She is so very Talented and has such a cool way of putting things together...We had so much fun!...It's really funny how you can meet a person...and feel as though you've known them FOREVER!...That's what happened the first time I met this Sweet Girl...I mean truly...How can you not love a person that gives you photo editing priviliges on THEIR blog!...and when you tell them that you hate and despise the picture of you (because you are EXTREMELY vain and silly!)...they post THIS one instead!...Which I must say is a VERY accurate Likeness of me!...Giggle!...

THAT reminds me...(not Barbie!...but Elyse's visit!)..The giveaway!...The Great Big Wonderful giveaway that was suppose to happen the FIRST time that Elyse came to visit!...Well...I suppose...better late than never...
There are some Pretty Nifty things...even if I do say so myself!..

Yummy Urbangardens Fat Quarters...a bunch of Vintage Forget-Me-Nots...Sweet Pink ruffle trim...

Lot's of Pretty Bits that I love...

Sweet Mermaid Trinket box...more Vintage Pink Forget-me-nots but this time in a cute paper nest!...



Dainty Vintage Berry Bowl...Tiny Pink Seashells...a Vintage Lizzie Lavender Sachet...actually...Three Sachets...








SO!...Bunches of really pretty things that I love and hope that you will too!...also a couple of Surprises (I love NICE surprises!!!)...that I didn't have time to Photograph!...Okie Dokie...since it's my first Giveaway...I'll do it the way Others have...just leave a comment on this post...between now and....hmmm....I hate waiting...don't you?...let's say....and Next Wednesday November 4th!...I'll draw the winner that night and let you know on Thursday!...Sounds like a plan!...I'm excited!...Hope you are too!!!...Till next time!...hugs!...
OH!...I forgot! to say!!!...That smartie Pants Elyse made my Giveaway button!...Isn't it perfect!?? AND don't forget to click on any of the pics to enlarge them and get a better look at all the goodies...Lot's of them I didn't even mention...like the Pretty pink Dangly Earrings or the Sparkly Girly Pink key Chain...or....well you get the idea!...Lot's of stuff!
