Favorites & Freebies – Forts, Fawkes & Friday

Well, I guess all the holiday rush has finally caught up with me. I didn’t blog two days this week, and I’m starting to feel the stress of the season. Since I forgot our “Thoughtful Thursday” post, I’d just like to share how thankful I am for all of the people who have offered their help and support as I branch out into unknown territory. The volunteers have come out of the woodwork for the festival next month, and I couldn’t be more excited!

So, This pretty much sums up my Friday today:

You. Me. Fort Cute & Goofy Greeting Card by VixensEmpire

It’s chilly outside, I’m wearing my husband’s hoodie and flannel pajama pants, curled up under a quilt Granny made us. It’s a fort kinda day! I’m going to hunker down and get crafty.

On another fun note, happy Guy Fawkes Day! For those of you living in Britain, or who’ve seen or read “V for Vendetta,” you know what I’m talking about. “Remember, remember, the 5th of November. The gunpowder, treason and plot. I know of no reason the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.” For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, here’s a little wikihistory to bring you up to speed.

Now for the good stuff.

For your slightly more sophisticated side, belledecoutoure is giving away these elegant and whimsical pebble earrings by hperl:

Check out this free, yummy sounding twist on banana nut bread recipe from iplayoutsidethebox. What a cool thing to bring to the family’s Thanksgiving celebration! I’ve found that pineapple is also a great addition to sweet potato dishes. You might want to check it out if you’ve never tried it.

Here’s a freebie from digitalpaperprincess – a November calendar PDF file. Replace the picture with your own, and print out a size small enough to slip in your purse! You can even laminate it and stick it on the fridge for an instant dry-erase calendar that you can use again next year.

I hope everyone has had a great first week of November!

Not-So-Scary Skeleton

Also, one of my favorite new things that a friend shared with me on Facebook is the Better Homes & Gardens 100 Days of Holidays daily email. They have such great ideas, like this silly-scary pumpkin vase. Thanks, Melissa!

Hammered Gold Cuff Bracelet

For an amazing giveaway checkout the Give-Away-Diva’s Wendy Mink Jewelry Giveaway! There are a lot of people entering this giveaway, but I’d say it’s worth a shot – the bracelet is worth $175.00.

Favorites & Freebies Friday

The next new addition to our blog schedule is Favorites & Freebies. I’ll share some of our favorite etsy items and sellers, plus any freebies (or next-to-freebies) I’ve found!

One of our favorite sellers is soapopotamus. I mean, I’ve seen some beautiful soaps on etsy, but her shop just sparks my imagination! Where else can you find roast chicken soap? It may also have something to do with her hair – isn’t it pretty?

This is one of my favorite listings of all time. Not only do I love the dress (and “mustard” isn’t my favorite color, either), but I love the model!

Vintage Mustard Yellow Dress by zwzzy

Now, for the freebies.

I love these PIF (Pay It Forward) matchbook sized mini notebooks! All you pay is the listing fee (.20) plus shipping on PIF listings, so it’s nearly free.

Also, don’t miss Mandy’s Yellow Corner’s Neeka Knits Giveaway! Enter to win a pretty knitted headband in your choice of color for fall.

Hope you all have a happy Friday!
