I won, I won ...
A few weeks ago I won a super blog give-away!!
And my super cute earrings arrived last week ... take a peek.

Not only are the earrings cute, check out the way they came packaged ...
attached to a wish ticket in a shiny robins egg blue {my personal favorite!} box,
all topped off with a paper flower "bow" ...

would you like a pair for yourself?
You can find them here at PrettyParis Etsy shop and beware ...
These cabochon cuties also come in the form of rings and hairpins!

When you're done shopping her Etsy store run over to her blog
Confessions of a Cranky Twin
for some light hearted entertainment!

Thank you Heather!

Speaking of blog give-aways here's one for you to try your luck at ...
you can win this fab tee-shirt and stand out rosette over at
my sister blogspot Gypsy Fish Journal

Hmmmm .... that rosette matches my new earrings,
I'll have to check the rules to see if friends and family are allowed to enter the give-away!

Next topic: Town wide yard sale this past weekend

I was some what mia from blogland this past week or so preparing for our town wide yard sale last weekend. After a full weeks worth of hauling treasures out of the basement and attic Mother nature decided not to cooperate ... but that didn't stop us! We held our sale inside and outside under a tent and it was a HUGE success!!

Thanks to ALL of the help I had, there was NO WAY I could have pulled this off on my own!!

Mom and my Daughter for wrangling the Three Year Old!

The Man for everything, including willingness to sell his "stuff" and pitching the tent at midnight ... the one in the yard!

Debbie for a FULL days work organizing, pricing, and cleaning!

Beth and Earl for support and showing up at 7am w/doughnuts, yum!

Fran for helping days before and showing up with pies and cake, more yum!

All shoppers who bought and bought and bought,

All proceeds will finance a new gas line and dryer at the Gypsy Flea Market household.
