I'm sure you've been wondering why I haven't yet posted about what I received for Artsy Mama's Sweet and Sinister swap, right? Well my SINISTER partner Sid sent an envelope that said "Do not open until October 19th!" Argh! It was really really hard not to go through that box. So I locked it in the closet at work and waited (un)patiently for today to arrive.
Behold the letter . . .
So I have a treat to open every night until Halloween!! AND she's doing a special post for my 13th magical treat. :) How clever! And you should see how cute and enticing everything is!
Seriously, how am I supposed to resist!?! I had to pack it all back up so I couldn't see it but it's calling to me from the bag . . . sigh . . .
However, as today is the FIRST DAY of the Thirteen Days of Halloween Goodness . . .
I have my first sweet little gift to open! What ever could it be???
Why a wonderful black, white and glittery banner that says "Sweet and Sinister!" I couldn't photograph the whole thing as it's so long! I love it and it will hang on my porch for Halloween and then find it a permanent home up in the craft room.
Thank you Sid! What a fun package, I can't wait to see the rest of the treats! :) This gives me a great idea for a "count down" swap on Sweet Goodness perhaps? It really is fun to have a goodie a day. :)
So I'm thrifting tomorrow with Joolz and Lizzy before we start the search for J's bridesmaid dresses. I did a little thrifting in Charm City last weekend and boy I got a lot! I picked up some books including the new Harry Potter for $1. It looks like it was never even read. Can you imagine? ;) Also found a nice duvet originally from Ikea and all that milk glass I showed you at the bridal shower. It was also a good day for linens:
As you know I love those linen tea towels and always scoop them right up. The one on the bottom left will be nice for Thanksgiving and I love the one in the bottom center with the pink and brown houses on it. The red Christmas tea towel is also linen and in perfect shape. ON the top you can see a cute veggie napkin, an adorable crib pillow case and a tortilla warmer from Puerto Vallarta. (Yes Vallen, I know you want it. :) )
And as I know some of you really need to see those kitties up close . . .
I know, sugar sweet. :) Now what to do with it?
Have a fun and fab weekend friends!
