A Win, Etsy, and Ebay.....

Look at my fabulous NEST banner I won from Cherry at Cherry's Jubilee! I LOVE it and have it hanging right now in my bedroom. It is beautiful and thanks so much Cherry.♥

Cherry also has a fabulous Etsy store and she has been stocking it up with fabulous Halloween cuties. I bought this little pumpkin pendant and it is adorable! Go check her stuff out.
Look at my beautiful burlap pumpkin, I LOVE it! Look how great it looks on my bed. Many of you know who makes these. It is Ramona from A Day in the Life of Ramona. She has several in her Etsy store right now, and if you have never visited her blog she is delightful. Go visit her and tell her Darlene sent you!
Next, I have visited Susie from Bienvenue's Etsy store and look at my pretties. I bought the rooster wall hanging. I have it up above my refrigerator right now and I love it!
Also, from Susie at Bienvenue I bought this wonderful house blessing door hanger. It is so pretty hanging on my doorknob and the verse is beautiful. Susie constantly comes up with new and wonderful things to sell in her Etsy store so be sure to go visit her.
I have seen these books on several blogs and I wanted to get them. My library didn't have them so I started stalking Ebay. I ended up getting both of them along with shipping for about $10.00 total. I stayed patient and kept going for the lowest priced books and finally got them. I have started looking through them and love them both.
Hope you all are having a wonderful Wednesday. Our temperatures have gotten cooler again and I am loving this Fall weather.

You have some wonderful things. Love esty and ebay. I am looking for green cuptowels with a little ruffle on them. Wasn't yesterday beautiful? I got lots of totes gone through. Just 3 more! We are painting the shed today.

Well Darlene, didn't you just have a great time shopping for all these treasures. lol. I love everything. Especially your nest banner. Lucky you. I am still trying to get up in the attic to see what festive things I have up there. It has been 2 years since I have looked at the fall boxes in the attic. Lucky that I did the Halloween exchange, or I wouldn't have much to decorate last year. I was still recovering from my first knee replacement.

I commented on your previous post about Lexie's solo. So exciting for Lexie.

Have a wonderful day.

Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

When is your winning streak ever going to end? I've never seen anything like it! You might want to think about playing the Lotto...I think you might hit the BIG TIME with your kind of luck! ;)

I love everything you shared with us! I'm always on the lookout for some new ETSY shops to try!

Ohhh, don't you love etsy and ebay? Greg wanted to buy some Christmas gifts and found a site, but it was way too pricey. I found what he wanted for half cost on ebay! Woo Hoo! I love your autumn decorations! Fall makes me happy!

The Berry's Patch said...

Sheesh girl, you are always winning stuff. I have never won a giveaway...what's wrong with me? LOL

That burlap pumpkin pillow is darling. There are such talented ladies out there. :-)

tardevil said...

Ok, now I want those books. Love your Halloween decorations. Especially the pumpkin. I thought about you when we named our new daughter b/c before I got pregnant (I think), I had commented on your blog that I liked the name Alexis, and if I ever had another child, she would probably be named Alexis Danielle, and you said you almost spit out your coffee. I had wondered if you remembered that. The day she was born, we decided to change it to Danielle Alexis b/c we wanted to call her Danielle. Hope you're having a great fall!

Scooterblu's Whimsy~Rhonda said...

Congrats on winning that fabulous banner! It is really cute!

And I love your etsy finds, especially the super cute pumpkin!

I'll have to check out ebay for Nell Hill books! I haven't had much luck finding them at our local stores, even the large chain ones.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend! ~hugs, Rhonda :)
