My 500th Post Giveaway!

I've been busy, chicks. My craft room looks like a hurricane hit it after some rock star had a party in it! When I'm creating everything flies out the window but what I'm doing at that time. Trust me, it ain't purdy.

But I had to go to Boise today to buy some sheets for our new mattress. We've had it for about 2 months now and the bottom fitted sheet keeps coming off. Nuuuuuu, not what you're thinkin'! This is an NOT an R rated blog. But we've determined it's the new thicker mattress and the old sheets are not compatible. So I spent the morning looking for new sheets. Let me say here that trying to find just a single sheet is almost impossible any more. So I had to buy a "set" of queen size sheets. Actually, our top sheets are becoming frayed so it wasn't a big deal but just the thought of not having a choice riles me up. I'm now saddled with extra top sheets. And heaven forbid that anything as simple as WHITE should be available! I love just plain white sheets with a few colors thrown in. I also like good thread count and soft 100% pure cotton. But I found 5 sets that are really nice but only 2 sets are white. One is egyptian cotton which is the best I believe.

Anyway, while shopping for the sheets I found a chair. Now, I really don't need another chair but the metal folding chair I use in my sewing and craft room wasn't high enough for my vintage school desk for me to craft on. We're talking my "chest" hits the desktop and I feel like a kid sitting there. Lo and behold, I found this french blue wood and cane folding chair marked down from $100.00 to $22.00!! Never one to pass up a good bargain, into the cart it went. I also found 2 little plates that are adorable but I can't find them at the moment to photograph so they'll have to wait.

Now for the best part of what I was doing this afternoon and evening since Love Bunny had to go to a business meeting.

VoilĂ latest creation. Roses, fabric, shimmery tinsel garland that looks like icicles draping over the edge of the little birdhouse and feather yarn around the bottom. My little chick is sitting on her little perch - all pink and wide eyed. This is the giveaway to celebrate my 500th post. All you have to do is leave a comment and a way to get in contact with you and this can be yours. I was going to keep it for a valentine swap but I've come up with another creation for that. I'll show you when she receives my swap. I think you'll like that item also. I'll draw a name on sunday and post it back here.
