Congrats to you!
I participated in Vintage Dragonfly's matchbox swap
and my awesome partner Mina sent me
such an amazing matchbox!!!

Today, out of the blue, I received a lovely thank you gift

Thank you so much Nancy!
Last but not least
I'd like to talk about a little challenge I'm going to have this month..
it's not going to be as huge as Haunted Humpday..
but I'm hoping it will be fun.
It's called A Book & A Blanket.
Once November comes around and the temperatures actually drop,
I want to crawl in bed and cozy up with a good book.
Every week I'm going to post a book suggestion and review.
All you need to do is leave a comment.
You can even post a book /review suggestion on your blog if you want.
I'm going to have a few giveaways..
book markers, warm throw blankets, art!
Maybe even a book or two!
this is very laid back, no pressure.
I'll put the first post up
Until then take care & keep warm
I hope to see you soon!
