just a note.....

Oh look, I added a widget! If you have never been to etsy before, now is the time to go. Gas prices are high, time is at a premium, it's 1:00 a.m. and you are up so what the heck! Why take the time to drive all around town looking for that perfect gift. Not a gift card (impersonal), not from a big chain store (droll), but a one of a kind, handmade item. Now that's special! You can find something to fit just about any hobby or interest...yes you can...just use the 'search' feature, you will be amazed! Here are some of my sewing note cards. Send to someone who sews or use as a clever pun! (You can be very clever). Etsy....yummy!

and the winner is......

DAO! at
Dear Dao won the contest and guessed the mystery vegetable. It is a kohlrabi! Big and split, but a kohlrabi non the less. If you visit her blog you will see that she is indeed a seasoned (hehehe) foodie. Her photos and descriptions of gastronomical delights are beautiful and luscious, you should check it out. I know she has a rockin' camera to take those great food shots and photos of the amazing things she knits. Oh, and her art....that is another story. Yes, Dao is an all around fantastic gal. So...what did she win you ask? Here are some photos of her prize. It is a 'key cozy'. Great for keeping keys and memory sticks, well, cozy! It is fun too, you pull up on the ball and the items go up into the bell. Pull them down and out they come! amazing you say? I want one too you say? You too can own one of these fantastic little items without having to deal with a vegetables identity crisis. Just hop on over to my etsy shop and get one of your very own! Go on...grab a snack and go shopping on etsy. Fun, easy and delicious.
