~~The Reveal~~

The " big-reveal" of the Basket Give Away is finally here. Just a little thank you from me to you for coming along on this journey with me this past year.
First item to go into the basket were these wonderful recipe cards.

On top of this adorable basket liner.

Next I teased you with the edges of these darling leaf plates. :-))


Last item, this wonderful smelling potpourri. I still have mine from last year. So after using it this year, if you put yours in a tightly sealed bag; next year when you bring it out, it will smell as good as it does this year. :-))

Which brings us to a full basket of goodies. But alas, are we missing something?

Of course we are!! Remember the silly looking legs? I enjoyed all the guesses about this clue. It was the Boo sign for Halloween. :-)) Which brings us full circle.

I can't thank you enough for playing along. I hope you had as much fun as I did.

So, here are the rules my friends. Nothing to hard. Leave a comment on this post, and you get one entry, let me know if you are a follower and you get two entries, post it on your blog and link it back to me and you get a third entry. Be sure to let me know you've done so, so I can count that third important entry..lol See, not hard at all.. lol The winner will be revealed on Monday October 26th. Good luck to each and every one of you enter.
And a very big Thank You for stopping by each day and leaving me such wonderful comments. I read each and every one of them. I'm sure many have noticed it takes me awhile to get back over to your blogs, working 2 jobs doesn't leave alot of time for playing on here. But, I do get there. I thank you for your patience and understanding.

P.S. Be sure to swing over to Gloria's and join in the celebration of her One Year Blogoversary Event. You can click here so as not to miss out on the celebration.
hugs ~lynne~
