My Sweet Little Goddaughter and her momma, (my best friend / shopping accomplice), left me for their home in Germany this past weekend. Given my now sad and lonely state of mind and the fact that my house looks like an A-bomb test site, I am having a giveaway to perk up my day, and hopefully yours. 

Actually. This giveaway is really sparked by today being my 1 year Blogging Anniversary. Blogiversary?

To all of my readers out there, I present to you a few of my favorite things / new obsessions Guess what? I am giving away ALL of them! 

1) A little fat quarter pack of some Tula Pink fabric from her most recent collection called Parisville, in the Sprout colorway. (Note that there are 2 of the fabrics missing... they were on backorder and I still haven't received them! Boo...)

2) Some spices that I love from Penzey's Spices. I am giving away 4 jars of my favorite baking spices: China Tung Hing Cinnamon, East Indies Ground Nutmeg, Powdered Ginger, & Ceylon Cinnamon. They are reallyyyyyyy good. The cinnamon is amazinggg! 


3) The coveted Swoon Quilt pattern! 

4) A pair of Mark B Gone pens... yes both white and blue! 

5) A mug rug made by yours truly.  

6) A pair of Fingerless Mittens that I made last year. They are made of a great merino wool that I bought at my local yarn store.

7) Some pretty Bamboo Ewe yarn in a firey red color.

8) A pint size ball jar, because I am clearly obsessed with them and I am working on getting YOU hooked too! 

9) A cute little notebook just for fun.
