Treat Of The Week

There’s something about autumn and Halloween that set the tone for the upcoming holidays. It’s been a week of celebration here in blogland and therefore I choose to celebrate the holidays.

I won this prize from Tanya over at Sunday Baker. This is going to be my go-to “goodie” cookbook this season as I didn’t think to bring any of my cookbooks to the apartment. So I’m elated right now! Thanks again Tanya!

Tanya is having another giveaway going on through the weekend, so if you would like the chance to WIN something fun, I urge you to visit Grab Bag Game – New Giveaway – Winner! But most of all, you’re going to be a winner as you will fall in love with Tanya’s Blog, she’s amazing!

Wishing all of you a wonderful blessed day.

Don’t forget to visit with Tanya, she’s amazing!


I can’t believe I was one of the winner’s at Jan and Tom’s Place. She threw a Birthday Tea Party for herself on October 8th and had a drawing after the party. Several of us that commented won just by stopping by and wishing Jan a Happy Birthday.

I was so surprised when this arrived in the mail today!

Well I had no clue what I was going to receive in the mail but these gifts are very special to me. I arranged the gifts on my bed for a picture to show the array. In the very front bottom right are Green Tea Body Lotion and Green Tea Body Wash. I’ve already used the lotion and I love it! That tube is going in my purse after my flight tomorrow! (Speaking of flight, Bobby’s taking me to the airport at 4:30am tomorrow!) Then there’s a nice bag of “Tea Of Life” to the left of the lotion/wash. I’m going to wait ‘til I return home to have my cup of tea. In the box there’s a wonderful heart frame and shoe box labels. I’ve got just the picture for that frame and it’s going on my little night stand. In front of the box is a nice set of beautiful note cards – sorry for the glare as they are sealed in a plastic wrap. To the right of the cards are a set of four fruit – fruit scented candles. How did she know how much I love candles??? Moving along to the back left is a book, “The Excellent Wife” by Martha Peace. Jan, this book is going on the flight with me tomorrow! To be a better wife to my dearest loving husband will give me joy. Next to the book is the prettiest card from Jan in the shape of a beautiful pair of shoes and in it were some very lovely words. And that cute little card holds a wonderful array of needles. I can always use needles.

Thank you for these special gifts Jan, I will think of you when I use these little treasures.
