A FEW NEW THINGS IN MY ETSY SHOP...AND THE GIVEAWAY-

Hello Ladies
(okay--and Ron & Adam-
I know they usually pop in)

I put some of my 
PRETTY PINK PUMPKINS 
in my shop yesterday
and before I could say
BIPPITY, BOPPITY, BOO
they were sold to a sweet lady
named Margaret!
Anyway,
I made a few more 
MINI pink ones using the same
dimpled fabric~
(dimples are better on fabric rather
than my thighs--yeah- we won't mention that)
I also made a 
BOO BABY SKELETON GARLAND
for the person that likes
scary but not TOO scary.
AND
I am going to be gone for a couple of weeks
in October.
SO-Because I don't want to pack my
HALLOWEEN DIORAMAS,
& one Christian diorama,
 away to store them,
I am going to sell them for
$12 each plus shipping.
You will not believe the detail 
in these-everyone that sees them loves them.
You will never see another like the one you purchase.

You can't beat that now, can you?

Pop over here to my
if you'd like anything you see here.

SO---That's all she wrote, folks.

TOMORROW I will
force badger beg ask
one of the kids to pick a name 
for the giveaway.

Last night to sign up, peeps!

WELL! Here I Am!..and there YOU are!--Come for the GIVEAWAY, did you?

I know some of you have wondered
WHAT I have been up to...right?

I am now letting the 
proverbial cat out of the bag-
or the witch off her broom--
take your pick.

I am starting this new blog
but not abandoning the old one.

This blog is called
A COTTAGE ON THE COVE.
I plan on posting items that 
I am creating for (or selling in)
my Etsy Shop---

Guess what the name of my 
Etsy Shop is...
 It is called

Is that clever or what?

I plan to get my items posted
for sale in the next few days
so bear with me
as I navigate the ins and outs of Etsy.

To start with I am going to 
do a small giveaway
just in time for Halloween.

I have a crusty, dusty, fusty
OLD CRONE
that needs a new home.
She is bringing her own 
CAULDRON
with her along with a couple of 
GOURDS
and maybe even one of my
special pumpkins--
(I am including whatever you see here-
except the sticks-lol)
Here she is!
Guess she didn't listen to her mother
and her face froze that way!
What do you mean is she 
a relative?
Is this her best side?


 She may be ugly but
just think how good 
YOU WILL LOOK
standing next to her...
Get my drift?

There might even be a
couple of other little things
thrown in there for fun...

ALL you have to do to enter
is follow this
NEW BLOG
and tell me you want to be entered.

IF you put a little mention of 
my new blog
A COTTAGE ON THE COVE
on YOUR blog let me know
and I will throw your name
in a second time.

This is open to US residents only.
I don't do international shipping
at this point.


To keep  it fair, 
I will have one of the 
GRANDKIDS
pick the name....
that way I can't get blamed for
PLAYING FAVORITES.

So-there you have it-
My first post on this new blog.
I don't plan to close my other blog.
That will be for family and fun.
This one will be for items
and ideas.
AND-when we move in the spring
I will let you follow along with 
the rehab/decorating of
our new place.
Wherever that might be!!!

Oh---want to see just a bit 
of what is going in my
Etsy shop?
Here is a sneak peek
of some of my cigar box dioramas!
Pretty cool, huh?

So---sign up as a follower
and tell me you want
to look good standing
next to that ugly old crone!

I promise to ship her out
in the next few days
so you get her well before
HALLOWEEN!!!

I think I have the shop connected-
A Cottage On The Cove
PLEASE pop over and see what I have....
I have LOTS more STUFF coming!
