Autumn Give away!

I won Jennifer's "Carry it Forward" Give away on her Thistlebear blog! Thank you Jennifer! I love everything!
I would like to keep the Give away going by having an Autumn Give Away myself! Autumn is by far my most favorite season, so I am more than happy to carry it forward ... Here is what I won...
I love candles, buttons and embellishments! What crafter doesn't? And the candles smell gorgeous!
I Adore this owl, though I don't officially collect them, I think all teachers have at least one owl in their classroom and I love seeing them all over the school!
And my most favorite gift of all... This beautiful pumpkin. Did I mention that I LOVE fall? :) I also love anything that is hand stitched, I'm not sure what I will do with this, but I think I see a pillow in it's future!
It would look adorable sitting on the couch!
Didn't Jennifer do a lovely job? Well she's a very talented lady, you should check out her blog!

Now... On to the excitement of my day!
I had a very good "English" day. 
Let me explain that...

I decided to go by JoAnn's Fabric and Craft store today and I found this!
YAY!!! I have heard so many of my British crafting friends talking about this magazine and I thought I would have to wait until November to get one!
Okay so it cost me nearly $12 BUT ... BUT... Okay I have no excuse... I just really wanted it, I do love me some English  magazines :)
Then I had to go to HEB, our Grocery chain here in Texas and what did I find?? What did I find you ask?? THIS
I LOVE these! I have been having them every time I've visited England for the last 5 years, and I thought it was only a holiday treat for me, but now we have them here!! yay! Guess what I had with my lunch? So now you see that it's the very small things in life that make me happy... You know... FOOD, Crafting and reading! Actually this says that it's a "Quaker" Brand which is big here in the USA, so I'm wondering who actually makes this product, I hope it's not loaded with C R A P. Who am I kidding? If it tastes like sugar, it IS sugar! Again, I ask... Why can't sugar be healthy? :)

I was pleased to stroll among the Halloween goodies, they were on sale for 40% off so it's a wonder I have any money left, but I am being as good of a saver as I can be! Minus the magazine!

Did I mention I love this time of year?
Especially hard to pass up all of the baking goodies
Martha Stewart sells everything now!
Hannah loves Halloween as much as her mom!
I think I'll pass on these M&M's though. Thank you very much!
I leave you with some Halloween Wisdom!
Have a FANTASTIC week!! And don't forget to comment and let me know if you want to be entered in the Autumn giveaway!


  1. Hi Tammy, if you are looking for an idea for your rose cross stitch from Mollie Makes, come and have a look at what I did with mine on my blog. I am just working on the little dog that comes with the next issue - well, I am blogging right now of course, but will be back to the dog in a moment! I hope that you get to England when you plan to.

  2. Hi Tammy, I'm so glad you like what I sent. I'm not going to enter your giveaway since I've already won it previously. Can I make a suggestion, though? You should make sure that your readers understand how a Carry It Forward giveaway works; the winner has to be willing to send a package to the next person, after sharing it and opening up for entries on his or her blog. That way the chain continues and people keep carrying it forward. :)

  3. LOL-Okay, kiddo- sign me up. You had me at cupcake liners and FAT quarters!! lol It looks like you had a wonderful time opening your package of goodies. I understand about carrying it forward, too. Hope you have a great Sunday night- xo Diana

  4. Wow you love this time of year just a little don't you?! I'd love to be in the giveaway, then I do a similar one if I win - is that how it works?
    Can't believe you don't get Muller corners in the US they come in many shapes/sizes and flavours here (mostly full of crap I suspect!)

  5. I love this time of year! I would love to be entered into your giveaway! :)

  6. Good for you winning. Nice bag of gifts. Good luck with your give away. xoxo,Susie

  7. I love this time of year too! Have a great day!

  8. You know I am in!! American baking supplies... YES PLEASE!

    Hopefully, if the Irish mail system gets it's finger out, your package should arrive this week! Have a great day my dear! I hope school is treating you well xxx

  9. i would love to be entered! this is a great idea!

  10. Those Muller yoghurts are made in Shropshire, which is where I live! Although I'm pretty sure your particular pot wasn't made in my home county, I'm not sure how well yoghurt would travel all that way!

  11. Hey! I would love to be entered in this giveaway.

  12. I must have missed this and guess it may be too late to enter for the giveaway but I'll try anyway. It's Monday evening here in the UK so I might just get in if I'm lucky.
