Come celebrate with me!
Its time for my birthday giveaway...soon (Sept 30th) I will have been on this earth for 52 years and I can't think of a better way to celebrate with the creative blog land peeps than to share goodies with you.

I have gathered 52 items in Autumn colors since I'm an "Autumn baby." I actually prefer Summer colors but.......
Everyone who comments on this post will be given a number and your name will be tossed in the hat.
On Sept 30th I will use the random generator to select one number to win my birthday stash gatherings. Good luck to all. International guests welcome to enter...naturally.

The goodies include:
6 fancy fabrics
3 lace/trims
3 ribbon flowers
3 cotton poplin ciggies
14 assorted glass leaf beads
4 daggar beads for making dragonfly wings 
1 packet sequins
8 yards of 7mm hand dyed silk ribbon in autumn colors
2 mother of pearl heart shaped buttons
8 special larger sequins
 52 items 

Thank you for sharing your world with me.
