Today is the day to announce the winner of my giveaway for the wonderful Carnival Mysterieux event from this past weekend! What a wonderful time I had visiting everyone's blogs and seeing all the fun, spooky, and creative posts. I love discovering new blogs to follow and visit, and I think these types of events are such a great way to do that. Another big thanks to Anna of Frosted Petunias, and Marfi of Incipient Wings for hosting the festivities! So....as you may or may not remember, I offered this vintage style gemstone and lock and key necklace as a giveaway for my lovely visitors.
I used random.org's random number generator to choose the winner, and the number that came up was lucky comment number 21 from Mina of Green Witch With Fairy Sparkles! Mina, I'll be contacting you directly to get your info so that I can mail you your treasure! Thanks again to everyone who visited and commented, it was wonderful to have you all here!
Now that the carnival event has passed and we are full on into autumn I am getting totally excited for Halloween. I've mentioned more than once here on my blog how much I love this time of year and I can't wait to get out into the forest this weekend to get some autumn photographs. I've got several new autumn themed watercolor paintings in the finishing stages, and will be getting some pumpkins this weekend for pumpkin carving fun. Yayyyyy! My lovely hubby has never carved one and I plan to show him the ropes. Can you imagine??? He's never had the fun of scooping gooey pumpkin and seeds from the center of a freshly cut pumpkin, lol. Here in England, they don't "do" Halloween in quite the same way they do in America, so I feel compelled to share all of my American Halloweeny ways with him, lol. Ohhhh, and I can't forget to mention....there is a wonderful spooky Halloween blog event coming up in a few weeks! The lovely Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist is hosting her annual Halloween blog party and it is going to be so fantastic. Be sure to check it out!
I'll be back in a few days with some of my new creations and hopefully some lovely photos of my adventures in the forest this weekend. Hope you're all having a great week, thanks for visiting!
