Today, while out shopping I found two Christmas magazines that were filled with wonderful pictures and ideas.

I had to buy both!

Unfortunately for me, I got home, put them on the table to read later in the evening only to find out I had already bought one of them!

I hate when that happens.

This is fortunate for you though.

If you haven't already purchased Christmas Cottage then just leave me a comment, telling me you'd like to be entered and I'll draw one name next Tuesday (November 6th), and it will be yours.

Thank you for stopping by.

P.S. Remember if you don't have a blog please leave me an email address so I can get ahold of you.

What I've been Up To This Week.

Well, I debated whether to show you this or not.

I've crochet scarfs before maybe a few doilies but never a backpack.

I saw the cutest crochet bag on Pinterest and just had to give it a try.

My niece has a baby shower coming up so I thought I'd try and crochet a backpack.

I though it would be fun and ideal for her to carry baby supplies in, I hope she likes it!

I took the picture after dark, always a little harder to get the colors to turn out true to life but you get the general idea.

(label on the back of backpack)

I think I had the most fun making the label.

I found a sweet picture of a child knitting.

I then named the backpack, "Baby Boo Backpack".

Now I need to get serious about many ideas so little time!

Thanks for stopping by.

A Quick Picture!

It's amazing how one "quick little photo shoot" can turn into a 20 minute ordeal.

I was going to take a quick photo of the pretty lavender my son picked yesterday and say, "I know I should be showing pumpkins and other Fall things but I sure do love lavender."

Anyway, I'm saying all that to say I ended up cleaning this chippy display piece.

I found it along with this great old set of books this week-end.

And since I needed to fill each shelf I grabbed a few blue bottles.

Don't you love blue bottles?

I kind of have a things for rhinestone clocks too.

Somedays, nothing is real simple.

Hope you enjoyed the photos.
