Gloria Pushed and Now I've Fallen

Fall is Gloria's from Happy to Be favorite time of year, and she's about to celebrate her 100th post. Gloria is one of those ladies who loves antiques, and she has a house full of treasures. If you haven't met her yet, pay her a visit. Tell her that Sally sent you.

She had a Fall giveaway, and I won! Yep, Gloria from Happy to Be gave me a push, and now I've fallen. Yesterday, a big box full of Fall things all separately wrapped, came for me to use to decorate my place for the Fall season. Look at all of this good stuff!



Inside the box, Gloria had this beautiful note, covered with pastels roses and a sparkly pink G in the center. It says,
"Dear Sally,
Thank you so much for being one of my followers. Glad you won as you have been with me since Day One. You're the best. May you enjoy.
Hugs & Smiles, Gloria"
Now, isn't that the most generous thing? She thanked ME, and I won all of these goodies!



Look at this! It's filled with recipe cards for pot pies and casseroles. I flipped through it, and some of the recipes look easy enough for even me to make! (You know, my kitchen is a low maintenance one!) In addition, there are coupons at the back of this book.



I absolutely adore these pumpkin salt and pepper shakers. Can you adore salt and pepper shakes? Shelia says, "Yes!"





A new oven mitt and a matching towel came in the package.





Look at this sweet pumpkin plate. I can use it for all sorts of things, but I like to just look at it with its pretty green vine curling downward.




A black crow came along to guard over the goodies.




The table runner has this cute guy sewn on each end. He says, "Happy Harvest."




Now, this is the size candy corn that I could gobble down! Only trouble is, they're both candles. Aren't they cute?



A BIG thank you to Gloria, and Happy Fall y'all!


Kelli from Kelli's House hosts Show and Tell Friday. If you have something special to share, this is the place to show it. It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Go to her place to join in the fun!

sara said...

how fun!!! I love the salt and pepper shakers! However, I am so not ready for fall. I am holding on to summer, but may have to give up soon.

btw, my need for another vacation can give you an idea of how stressful things are right now!

Great treasures you have won. I especially like the pot pie and casserole cookbook. It is neat to follow the construction of your home. Amazing to see cinder block walls! It will really buffet any hurricanes that come along.

Thank you for visiting my show and tell :)

jeanne said...

Hello Sally, I am back home once again. It is good to be home but I had a wonderful trip. I have some great stuff to post about.

Congrats on your wonderful giveaway win. It is all so nice. The candy corn candies look good enough to eat. My favorite fall candy. If you discover some easy tasty recipes in that book, post them.

I will scroll down when I say goodnight and see what I have missed. I wonder how your new home is coming along.

Thank you for your visits while I was gone Sally.

See you tomorrow.

Hugs, Jeanne

PS; I had to put the letters back on my comments as I was getting bad comments that typepad didn't publish. Hundreds of them. A real problem.
