WELCOME AUTUMN GIVE-AWAY!


I have decided that y'all are some of the sweetest
(I mean! You gave me a cavity!)
blog friends a girl could ever have!

When I declared myself a Klutz, you assured me that I WAS indeed a Klutz,
but your sweet words of comfort and offers of prayer and well wishes truly lifted me up!

In fact, I am so grateful to all of you, I decided to dedicate this song to you.
I am Lucy, y'all are Ethel, m'kay?



If you're ever in a jam, here I am.
If you're ever in a mess, S.O.S.
If you ever get so happy you land in jail, I'm your bail!
It's friendship, friendship, just the perfect blendship.
When other friendships have been forgot, ours will still be hot!


If you're ever up a tree, phone to me.
If you're ever down a well, ring my bell.
If you ever lose your dough when you're out to dine, borrow mine.
It's friendship, friendship, just the perfect blendship.
When other friendships have been forgate, ours will still be great!


If they ever black your eyes, put me wise.
If they ever cook your goose, turn me loose!
If they ever put a bullet right through your brain, I'll complain.
It's friendship, friendship, just the perfect blendship.
When other friendships have been forgit, ours will still be it!!

I mean every word!

Now on to the GIVEAWAY!!

I have been gathering things, thinking of how I like to cozy up, bake,
and welcome friends and family in during the Autumn months,
and what I might like if I wanted to make a few changes and fluff up our home.

Here's what I found for you!


WELCOME, AUTUMN!!
(It's about time you got here!)



I wonder why I picked this coir mat???



This is a three-wick Madagascar Vanilla candle from Bed, Bath and Beyond.



It is surrounded by a maple leaf garland and sits inside a Better Homes & Garden wire basket.
I have one of these in my kitchen and use it for rolls, fruit, crackers.
It is a nice size!



A BH&G maple leaf serving platter.



A soft faux fur and suede throw.
What do you spy in front of the throw?



A vintage postcard.
What do you spy behind the left side of the postcard?



Your very own bottle of toenail polish in the most-becoming shade of
KLUTZ KUMQUAT.



I told you it is most becoming!
It is colour & go. but I coloured & stayed.




I also got you a copy of my favorite magazine in the whole wide world.



It is published quarterly, so this copy covers the months of October, November AND December.



This is my favorite magazine.
Life: Beautiful.



In it,


Dr. James Dobson (talks about Parenting)
 Max Lucado (talks about Jesus)
Joyce Meyer (talks about practical Christian Living)
Dr. Gary Smalley (talks about Marriage) 
Janet Parshall (talks about Godly women's influence in America)
Ted Baehr (talks about Media Trends and family friendly choices)




There are fantastic decorating ideas.



Party and hospitality ideas.



Recipes.



More decorating ideas.



Inspiring stories of faith.



Craft ideas.



Media reviews.





Life:beautiful is dedicated 
to delivering the uncompromised message 
of the Bible with excellence in journalism, 
photography, and editorial and art direction 
in order to offer a world-class faith magazine 
that encourages us to change the world 
by beginning with the making 
of our own homes.

And that, I can't help but love!

I wrote that mine always makes me smile but yours made me giggle. I LOVED IT!!!! For some reason, I thought you were on my blogroll and I had not seen an update. I guess I missed something about your foot. Gotta go read your other posts.

    Wow, 111 comments. Well, midnight October 12th--that's actually the end of my birthday. I'd love to be in the giveaway and already follow as you know.

    Oh, and you didn't miss my birthday. It's next week on the 12th. I meant to say that it will be over on the same date and time you chose to close the entry for your giveaway. =D Today has been so much fun with BNOTP. I'm glad I joined. And your advice for my mom's rings is simply perfect. I took you up on it. Thanks!
