Happy nights and warm days!!!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Happy Fall!  I know you are enjoying all this lovely weather and "open up the windows nights!"
I've been busy working on some new projects and a few pillows.
I love the scrunchy fabric on this one.

Check out this cool, ultra retro lamp spied in another booth.

Now get out there and make it a wonderful day!

Look at my follower count, it just hit 800!  I'm in shock that so many people would follow little ole me, but I'm also very grateful.
Which means, a giveaway is coming soon!
