~25 CENT WREATH & THE WINNER IS~

Hello guys....you see this wreath...Well its not the most prettiest thing I ever found out yard sailing...But it was only a quarter it was new in the beat up box still and I needed a fall wreath for my front door.. It really needed a new do...


It might be new but look even the fruit looks like a Mack truck ran over it...


I had all this left over fall stuff from doing my daughter Dawna's wedding 2 years ago...So I brought out my bag of tricks , glue gun and went to work...



Tore all the old stuff off of it....Made a bow added some Pumpkins and a little gourd and a little Harvest sign Dawna got me.....See what a quarter can do...Look around your own house and see what you can make...I love to shop my house....






Now I know you didn't come by here to see my 25 cent wreath...But humor me and tell me you did ha ha!! I want to thank everyone that entered my Fall give away and how great it was to meet some new friends here...Don't you just love the Caring and sharing you find meeting new friends in Blog land...I know I sure do...No matter how old or young these wonderful people I have met here we all seem to have a common bond a strong love of God and our family...I have my one year anniversary coming up in 30 days and I really don't know what I did before meeting all of you...( oh I did keep a cleaner house then ha ha!!) You guys have really inspired me...I just love reading your blogs and seeing all your wonderful Tablescapes, your Decorating ideas which by the way are just awesome...Your crafts and some of the most YUMMY recipes...oh I get hungry every time I see what you ladies can create....Now for my first anniversary Party I have been gathering stuff for over 2 months now...But that will have to wait for 30 days for the unveiling...


Ok I teased you enough now ha ha!! I did the random number thingy on this drawing...If you were already a follower I put you down for 2 chances if you were a follower and did a post about it I put you down for 3 chances...New follower (Thanks) down for one...I had 73 comments but out those one didn't want to be entered and so with my pea brain I did the math and came up with 127 chances....Oh and guess what the gal that won is waiting for her new home to be built and have all her stuff in storage so maybe she can just use a little Fallness around her...Ok Ok lol!! I put this off long enough....

Am I suppose to do a drum roll here...The winner is Sally at "Smiling Sally" I think everyone in blog land knows Sally and her Blue Monday she does...Anyway Congrats to you Miss Sally...Now girl you need to email me your address so I can get this box of Fallness off to Florida...My email is on my profile...

Any hoo A BIG HUGE thanks to all that entered...When I win our State's Lottery I will give every one a gift ha ha!!

May you all have a great weekend...We have the Folsom Antique show this Sunday...I just know something is screaming my name...See you all on Monday...


Hugs and smiles Glria

You did a great job in remodeling the wreath. A blank form would have been much more than that. I sure looks pretty on your front door.
