I Don't Usually Keep Things To Myself

You know what? I've been keeping lots of secrets lately.

There was this gorgeous flossy-p brooch that I won. I absolutely love it and wear it all the time.
Have you been to her place lately and checked out her giveaway. It's a great one.

Thanksgiving Giveaway 2008

Then there were these beautiful bobby pins that arrived from A Little Bird Told Me last week. I can't wait to give these an outing some time this week.

They came so beautifully packaged too. I love great creative packaging. It's like getting an extra treat.

Many months ago I was the lucky recipient of a pay it forward gift of these fantastic bowls from Reenie-Su.

I also bought this sunnyboy from Quilting Mick months ago and kept meaning to share it with you. I keep it at work as a little toiletry bag.

Last but not least, I recently joined the Amitie VIP club. You get treats in the mail 4 times a year. How cool is that? Last week I received my first mailout. I love this fabric. It's definitely time to start planning some summer sewing projects.

So, there you go. I've really been keeping things to myself. It's not like me. I tend to be an over-sharer.

Then of course there was all the secret squirrel business that went on forever. If you haven't caught up on things pop over here. It's not a secret anymore. Thanks to everyone who has already visited for all the lovely feedback, ideas, wisdom and well wishes. It's much appreciated.
