a little giveaway to get in the halloween mood


While unpacking all of my Halloween and Fall decorations from their storage bins, I found a few *surprises.*  These surprises were crafts made last year with the intention of giving them away. So, I thought I would give one of these "surprise" burlap pumpkins that I found away to one of my dear blog readers.  I have made these for a few years now and I love how easy they are to make. Just a bit of orange burlap, aged with brown paint here and there, sewn felt eyes, nose, and mouth, a thick twig and some wire.  I found 4 more that were partially made in those bins as well.  So, watch out friends and neighbors, you might find something hanging on your door soon!!!  I also found a partially made Halloween apron that I need to get finished as well.  Really, they were all fun surprises.  It's amazing how much you can forgot about in a year.  

O.K. here are the details of the giveaway - it's going to be a short time period - you have until Thursday (the 24th) at midnight (eastern time) to leave a comment and then I will draw a number and get this out as quickly as possible. You can have it hanging up in plenty of time for Halloween.
