Autumn Colors For Thanksgiving Month!

Colorful November 2013 Give Away
Have you ever posted on your blog and as you were posting you got the happy feeling that you love posting and you are going to post three times a week for the rest of your life to say in touch with your wonderful followers?   Well, that happens to me each time I post.  But, real life gets to be so interesting as I participate  in the joys of day to day activities.

  For instance, my four year old grandson just came back from the toy store with Grand Papa with this getup.  He then limbed on the back of my chair and declared that he is a Ninja Turtle ready to  save the world.  From Grandma?  
Ninja Turtle Obsessed
 I really missed a lot while I was ill and catching up, except for the house cleaning, is so much fun.  Just gazing at the beauty of Autumn leaves with a view of tall mountains with gray and white clouds hanging over them encourages me to make a joyful noise.   Although, I must say that I haven't gone mountain climbing but only once since I had my incident with The Boulder.

This month, my blog friends, for November Give Away, I offer to you this very colorful beautiful dressed mannequin, accompanied by shawl/wrap in the same color trimmed with faux fur.  I don't know why my little voice in insisted on making a blue purse as an accent,  but let's go with it anyway.  Personally, I think it looks really cute.  
Resist the cold with this warm wrap.

Thanks again to all of you for leaving your wonderful comments.  I read each of them with passion over and over again.  Thank you for praying for me and one another.  Coping with adversity is usually difficult and adversity is going to touch most of us at some point  but, we just need to roll with it and try to stay sane during the ride and at the end, kiss the "ground."  If you believe in God, please thank Him too. 

Welcome to all new followers.  It makes me smile when I see the number of friends increase and also makes me work harder and happier to bring you the best I can of what I do.  Thank you for following.

In order to enter the draw for the November give away:
              1.  Leave a movitvational comment on this post only.
              2.  Be a follower of my blog.
              3.  Enter by the deadline.
Deadline is Saturday, November 30, 2013 at 11:59 PM Pacific Daylight Savings Time.  Winner will be posted the following week.

Keeping with the Autumn color scene, this is really a beautiful dress.  The silk velvet is hand dyed by the lovely ladies at Vegas Airs from Las Vegas, Nevada.  They do wonders to silk fabrics that work well with miniature creations.  I discovered them at a local miniature show.  Some of my work can be viewed on their website.

Some of my inspirational fabrics from VegasAirs.

Please check back for the December Give Away coming soon.

Hugs, Love and Kisses,

October Winner 2013 Winner!

Hello to my favorite Blog friends!  We have a winner for October and her name is Ilona!  Roberta, a friend of Ilona is a very shy birdie elf.  She is a couple of  hundred years old and currently lives in The Netherlands and helps out in the house of a very old man.  Although camera shy, she is brave enough to announce into her little microphone the winning comment.   If you listen closely you may be able to hear her.  If not, here it is in writing:  

"Felma, your Halloween scene is beautiful. Your Halloween give away is soooo colorful, I really love bright colors and your dress is gorgeous. The painting of your daughter is wonderful, it fits good in this scene, thank you for sharing.

I would love to participate in your generous give away, so please, count me in. I'll put the link on my blog.
I wish you a good October month :D!
Hugs, Ilona"

Thank you Roberta! You did a great job of announcing.  Please don't be shy.  Let's all give Roberta a big hand of applause.

Now you will certainly want to know more about Roberto and Ilona by visiting  MiniMumLoon  for an inspiring treat.  Ilona is a great multi-talented artist. 

Thank you to all of you who entered this give away.  I love the comments and followers of my blog.  Thank you to all new followers.  You know I really wish everyone could win, but if you see a give away that you are interested in please go for it and you may be the next winner.

Speaking of the next winner, November giveaway is coming soon and I need to finish it before November ends!  October was so much fun celebrating Birthdays including my youngest grandson's which was the most fun of all.  Also, we were fortunate enough to have him stay with us for a few days while his parents were out of town.  Where did October go?  Does anyone know?

My health is great and I am very happy to be healed and there are so many minis in my life that I can't stop going.   Going through my stash, making minis for eBay,  playing with my grandsons and the good fortunes of every day life.  Thank you God for your healing.  Thank you friends for your prayers.

Hope to see you soon for the Novermber give away.  Please keep the comments coming.  You know I love comments so lets give Ilona a congratulations on her win.

Happy Thanksgiving Month!  We have a lot to be Thankful for.   At the top of my list is that My Favorite Daughter is alive after last week when someone opened fire and fatally shot one person and wounded several others at her place of employement.  I pray along with you that this world becomes a better place for all.  

Hugs, Prayers and Love,
