We have a winner!

First, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who left a comment.  I truly do appreciate it when people take the time to leave me a note.

We have a winner of my blog giveaway, but we also have a whole lot of people who were disqualified because they are "No reply commenters" and did not put their contact info in their comment!  I was unable to respond to about half of the comments because of this.  I always, always reply to everyone who takes the time to leaves me a comment, so if you did not receive a response from me, then you are no-reply.  Please, please go to your settings and change them.  If you don't know how, follow this link to Lori's blog and she walks you through it.  You do not have to have a blog of your own to have your e-mail address in there - it's all in the settings!  Please...go there now!  Ok...sorry about the scolding...now back to the WINNER!!

Congrats to Barb of Fun with Barb blog!

Happy Birthday Month Julie! How awesome to finally see Fleetwood Mac! sounds so fun. That band always reminds me of high school.
What a lovely giveaway~ I would pick a pineapple pin. they are stunning!

Thanks again to everyone!  And if you didn't win...you can still go to my website and buy yourself a little Valentine's Day gift!

We had a blast at the Fleetwood Mac concert - they sounded better than I expected them to (you know, they are not spring chickens!).  It was a super fun night and I had a great birthday yesterday too.  I've been trying to get caught up on e-mails and orders - it's amazing how things stack up in just a day or two.

I don't want to have a boring post with no pictures, so here are some bright pendants that I made awhile back.

 And here are Ozzie and Callie - chewing on some cat nip that my DH brought in for them.  Silly cats!
Hope you have a great weekend and a Happy Valentine's Day!

So many visits...must be time to give something away!

I recently noticed that my blog had reached 100,000 views - think about that...100,000.  My blog has been looked at 100,000 times!?  Crazy!  So...in honor of that, I'm going to have a giveaway.  To enter to win, here is what you have to do...go to my website and choose your favorite thing on there.  It can be jewelry or quilt patterns - anything that is on the website.  Come back here and in your comment, tell me what is your favorite...and if you are chosen...that will be your prize!  Also...if you are a "No Reply" commenter - I really wish you would change your settings!  I hate it when someone leaves me a comment and I can't respond to them - just seems rude to me - and I don't want to be rude!  So...if you are "No Reply" or "Anonymous", you have to leave your e-mail address in your comment, or you won't be eligible to win.  I would appreciate it if you sign up to be a "Follower" of my blog, but it's not required for the giveaway.  I will draw a name on Friday, February 13th.  (Eek...Friday, the 13th?!)

Hopefully some of you will read the rest of this post!  I will keep it short.  Here is the 3rd little charm for Charming 3.  Can't believe we are halfway done already!

Remember this blanket?  I bought this at my least favorite store in the world...Wal-Mart!  I may not love the store, but I do love this blanket...it is soooo soft and I love the color and design.  It's funny because Callie lays on this all the time and just kneads, and kneads it.

 But Ozzie hates it!  Yes, he is laying on it here, but it doesn't happen often.  He likes to sit on my lap, but if that blanket is on me...he won't lay on it! Silly cat!


This coming week is my birthday week (you know...I claim the whole month) and a good friend and I are going to celebrate by going to a Fleetwood Mac concert!  When I was in high school, I was invited to go see Fleetwood Mac and I begged, and begged (it was on a school night!) until my Mom finally said I could go.  We were soooo excited, and could not wait for that concert.  And when the day came...Stevie Nicks lost her voice and they cancelled!  So when my friend called and asked if I wanted to go, I could not pass it up!  And even better, her birthday is the 10th, mine is the 12th, and the concert is the 11th. . Happy birthday to us!!

Hope you all have a great weekend!
