Wow, my counter just passed 35,000! Thanks, everyone, for checking out my little corner of blogland! In honor of that, I am giving away a brand-new Stampin'Up! Hodgepodge Hardware kit in Antique Brass:
To enter the blog candy contest, just leave a comment here and let me know what your favorite fall memory or activity is! There is a certain smell in the air that hits right around the beginning of September; I don't know whether it is the grass, or leaves beginning to change, the goldenrod, or what. But it reminds me of:
- the first days of school, and we only wore dresses to school, NO PANTS!! And little plaid sneakers with white rubber toe things--what are those called?
- going out to recess with our little button-down sweaters on
- bringing fall leaves to class so we could iron them between pieces of wax paper to make place mats (anyone else remember that?)
- the crunch the leaves would make as my saddle shoes (I HATE saddle shoes) crunched through them as I walked down our lane to the school bus
- carving jack-o-lanterns
- hearing the big corn-picking machine going through our cornfields
That's just a FEW memories of mine growing up on a Pennsylvania farm in the early 60's. How about you? I'll keep this open until Wednesday, Sept 17 at 8 pm eastern time, at which time I'll pick a winner! One entry per person, please!
Edited to add: Please make sure to have an email address available through your post or blog so I can get in touch with you if you're the winner! L.
