Driveby Sunset & Final Blogiversary Giveaway

I love seeing beauty in everyday things (and in not-so-everday things, but everyday things are what I see, well, every day).  I slowed down to capture these photos from the driver's seat of my car, but I didn't stop as I probably should have.  I think this makes for a better representation, since driving by is how I saw and remember this sunset.  Stopping would have diminished their authenticity.  Yeah, that's the explaination for my unsafe driving practices!  Note: This was one of the few times Nathan was not in the car with me.

Final Blogiversary Giveaway

Today ends my the week of my first blogiversary, and I thank you all for joining me!  I reached my initial goal of 200 Google Friend Connect followers (thank you and welcome!) and had fun getting there with four giveaway posts this week.  (I recap the giveaways with links below in case you missed any -- you still time to enter!)

Today's giveaway is a needlefelted wool pumpkin, leaf and a small handful of needlefelted acorns with real acorn tops.  I have little items like this all over my fall seasonal table and I just love them.

That’s five possible entries per person!  Entries will stay open until 8 p.m. on Friday, October 14.  I’ll use a random number generator to select the lucky winner and will announce the winner in the following day's post.  Please make sure I have a way of contacting you.
