Carol sent me this wonderful Halloween ornament for my birthday.
When I arrived home from work today there was another package waiting for me. (I just love surprises, don't you? Sweet Vera (no blog yet but we have to work on that LOL) whom I met through Peggy Lee's blog sent me this wonderful little pillow.
Isn't it fabulous! Pardon my terrible photo skills but it has the most gorgeous aubergine color in the tassels. The little charms at the top say "September" and "Virgo" and the little crescent moon charm is a wonderful purple color as well. Vera does some pattern designing herself and I am hoping we will see more of her lovely creations soon. Thank you so much my friend for making me feel so special for my birthday.
I will leave you with a photo of another visitor to my yard. He gave me quite a shock when I first noticed him. :o)
I remember seeing these as a child and they always had a darker zig zag pattern in the center of their web. As kids we would always scare each other by telling the others that if the spider wrote your name in his web you would die! Then we would tentatively check the web each day to make sure our name didn't appear.
I have the day off tomorrow and I plan to spend it in the sewing room. I hope to have a couple of new things to add to my giveaway box. There is still time to enter if you haven't already done so. Just hop over to my post of September 1st and leave a comment.
