My lucky Week!

Sometimes on my worst days, something wonderful happens and it makes my day, so much brighter.
Sunday was one of those days, I spent most of the day in my chair, sewing and sore as heck from a long walk and falling on the path. But, that day I got an email from Brenda at A Rusty Thimble, telling me that I had won first prize in the PAFA giveway. Talk about being thrilled to win prim goodies, but I didn't realize as first place winner, I got first pick, of seven, of the prizes that I wanted.

PAFA is a wonderful group of primitive artists and it was hard picking out seven from all of the wonderful prizes.  Today I got my first prize in the mail and it is wonderful. It is a halloween potion bag and has a wonderfully wicked smell to it, lol. I picked this one, since it is something I don't make and it will look wonderful with a grouping of the other items I got. The bag was made by Brandy of The Lil' Prim Cabin. She did a wonderful job on the bag, love the materials she used and the fun label. I took a photo of it here, for now, then I can put my items in a grouping when they all get here.
