Greetings friends!
Today I share with you a "potpourri" of things.

First, let me thank Pamela from
She drew my name for her giveaway and I received a lovely parcel of goodies!
One of the gifts was this beautiful lavender potpourri.

Pamela's giveaway was for this sweet bracelet with an owl charm, I absolutely adore!  
She also included a beautiful card and some lovely ribbon for crafting. 
Thank you Pamela! 

I've also been doodling a bit so I thought I'd give you a peek into my art journal. 

After doodling and painting I  hear my needle and thread calling so I work on some embroidery pieces for a while.

 I think the colors of autumn are calling me.

I'm still having fun making little crocheted flowers and Shatzie always likes to participate.

Thank you for your encouraging comments on my last post.  I didn't expect such an interest in the video, so if you didn't get it from me already by email, here is the YouTube link that helped me understand the 5 pedal crocheted flower.

Last but not least,  I'd like to send a warm WELCOME out to my new followers I see, thank you!
It's always fun to meet new friends.

Hope everyone has a weekend filled with a
"potpourri" of things that you enjoy!

Quite the potpourri! Looks like it must smell divine. Fall stitching is gorgeous and your doodling a little more than doodling I think!
Happy Weekend. xox Corrine

Hello, Becca! (I'm here!!!=])

and, this post is extremely refreshing. I feel like I've 'come home' which sounds SO corny (sorry) but that's how I'm feeling, reading through your posts, now.

oh, and this inspiring photography....sigh!=]

Off I go to ramble through a bunch more of your posts and, then, go to sleep and, hopefully, dream about the colors in your beautiful potpourri.

Love, Katy Noelle xxo
