Harvest ATCs, Giant Poppies and News of Birthday Giveaway

The theme for this month's ATC swap over on Roses on My Table was Harvest. I started thinking about horticultural shows and the gardeners trying to grow the biggest, heaviest and longest vegetables. I thought this Victorian gentleman looked like a gardener in his Sunday best and here was the results of his labours, a giant pumpkin or a giant onion. I also liked staying with fall colours, so lots of oranges, rusts and browns.

I got to do some crafting at work today. A colleague asked me to make some poppies to use in her Rembrance Day display and here is the result, large giant paper poppies. They are about
1 1/2 foot across. I got the pattern and instructions from this website.

Then as my birthday is around the corner I've decided to run a small giveaway, I'll pop the details on here in the next few days so keep looking!

As it is soon to be my birthday I decided to treat myself to this wonderful journal by Suzi at Suziqui's Threadworks. I just couldn't resist it when I saw it earlier, I've admired her work for a little while now and this journal just screamed my name and when you see it you might see why, lol, you know how I love my cemetery angels. It is just so gorgeous, beautifully shabby and chic, I can't wait to hold it in my hands :-) Do pop over to see her beautiful work and blog!
