hello flutterby

I LOVE giveaways. Lots of etsy sellers are hosting them on their blog and I think it's a great idea! I, too, will be hosting one later this month.
Anyways, I came across Pamela Angus's blog when she was having a giveaway.
She was offering her flutterbys.

Aren't they beautiful?! I was really excited about this giveaway and entered.
2 weeks later she announced the winner, and yes it was me!!! I never win anything so I was soooo excited that out of all the people that entered, little ol' me won a beautiful flutterby!! I got to choose my color and I chose yellow. And it came in the mail today!




Oh I'm so in love! I need to get another flutterby soon so she can have a friend. I love to have pairs of things around the house. I also need to find the perfect place to put it!
You can visit Pamela's etsy shop here!



Also it took two weeks for someone to do something to our obama/biden sign. They covered it with a sticker saying vote for jimmy, as in the sandwich shop. So when I returned home last night I saw it and was able to take it off without much damage. I knew something was bound to happen, just didn't know what yet. At least we still have it in one piece and fully readable.

  3. Hi there,
    What a lovely flutterby and you look so cute! Just found your blog via a link on Hoyden Designs and thought your blog name was STEAL A BIRD. That's how tired I am. Steal a bird? Intriguing!
