It's Rednesday Wednesday Giveaway Day!


Wow, this week went by quickly! I can't believe it's Wednesday already and the 7th of September. 
 September is my favorite month.  The beginning of Fall and  apple season kicks it off! The orchard's are open.....pick your own or by the bushel...... Apple Butter.......Apple Fritters.......Caramel Apples................
Applesause, Smoked Sausages, and Sauerkraut..............

This is a wonderfully scented wallhanging I have in the kitchen.
I  get a new one every year. I know I'm a strawberry girl, but I love the smell of apple pie baking. It reminds me of my  Grandma's kitchen.   The cinnnamon sticks and dried apples fill the room and of course I have to have a bit of vintage doily in there ;) It feels so country and homey.

Crafts Shows begin to pop up during this time of the year in Ohio too.  The Heritage Village Fall Harvest ,. Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, Ohio Renaissance Festival, Old West Festival, Mason Arts Festival all take place this month. I found this fabric wall pocket a while back at one such show. I just couldn't pass it up.
 Not only is the pocket created by a vintage quilt piece with buttons, but it has a cute little calico clad girl holding a her watering can and it is filled with a vintage Florist Wire package. What floral designer could pass up this bit of whimsy. The lady that created these had a variety of career themed pockets like this. I thought it was such a neat idea.
Well, that's all the red I have for today. I'm so glad you stopped by......HUh?  OH! the giveaway...........
Okay. To remind some of you that missed out on the post or just found my blog. I had a giveaway this past week that included a surprize. This is the part of the giveaway I showed............
 I created a little wallhanging using a vintage quilt scrap accented by a  cherry applique I hand-embroidered and placed in a vintage hoop, then finished with vintage lace. Now I'll let you see what the surprize included.................................
Very cherry file holders, perfect for paperwork or recipes..... A To Do List pad with matching pen, sure to make the list a little easier ;)......a pack of  Notecards to send cherry--er---cheery thoughts.....and a little Vintage Cookbook from the late 40's early 50's . Yes that is a Strawberry dessert on the front. When you use it I hope you'll think of your friend  here in Ohio.

Without further ado the winner of the giveaway is... drum roll

pddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd..............

Hi Melody,
Oh gosh, you've got me wanting homemade apple pie right now! Yum! There's a restaurant we go to for lunch that has the most wonderful juice - it has apple juice, caramel and cinnamon in it, heavenly. I'm going to have to try and replicate it.

You lucky, what a lot of fun festivals you have coming up. Wishing you lots of fun!

Congratulations to Elizabeth and Happy Rednesday to you!

Sally

Thanks for visiting today but now you have me curious. Is they type of bouquet I put together called "colonial" because of the type of flowers, the arrangement the assortment.....tell me more. I love knowing historical info on any and all things. I think the 60s was, probably, when I started drying flowers.

Hi Melody from a fellow Ohioian. Thanks for stopping by. I live on the north shore, right by Cedar Point, midway between Toledo and Cleveland.

We have some great craft shows up this way, too. Prairie Peddler is coming up in Bellville and we love the Oakridge Festival in Tiffin, OH, too.

Oh my goodness! I didn't know that I had entered when I last left a comment. How lucky am I!!! I don't think I have ever won a Giveaway, this is such fun! I am so glad I looked at my past post, I nearly didn't as things here in Delaware are in chaos mode. This has made my day! I will e-mail you my address. Elizabeth

I saw the name Elizabeth and for an instance thought I was the winner. Then it dawned on me. I go by Liz in Blogland and only the Yankee calls me Elizabeth. LOL

Congrats to the real winner!

Thanks for linking to my party. I would love to have you join me for one, or all three, of my parties each week.
