I've been M.I.A. for a couple of days. I'm slightly under the weather here and I don't want to give more information than you all care to hear.
I am VERY LATE posting my giveaway win, the beautiful Candle Mat from Paula at Paula's Primitives. I am over the moon with this win,
firstly because it's my first win and secondly because it's SO GORGEOUS. You can't tell from the blog photos. The details, especially the tiny stitches on the swirls and all around the loops on the outside trim. Incredible work, Paula! And, it's got some weight to it, let me tell you. I don't know what she did but Paula made this mat extremely well, it's not just front and back wool, there's something sandwiched between that gives the mat a lot of substance. And the color, it "changes" a little depending on what light I have it under.
I'm having it at the Thanksgiving Table under my floral centerpiece
and if I don't get the camera to work before then, I will ask Ashley if I can use hers. I wanted to wait to put up photos
with the post but as usual I'm having difficulty transferring them to
the computer. Not that we're not all aware of how horribly I take photos but I felt the post wouldn't be complete without them. I'm sorry but it's going to have to be for I cannot let another day go by without acknowledging my beautiful candle mat. Thank you, Paula!!
I'll be back later with some fun graphics and an update on the new
giveaways out there. I have to take it in stages today and for the next few days so I'll try my best to keep you interested. I'm also enjoying catching up with the bloggers I like to follow and leave lots of comments where I don't usually have the time to leave them.
