{Giveaway} ~ Win an adorable handmade Luxurious Velvet Pumpkin!

So here it is, my first solo giveaway! As you know I fell in L.O.V.E. with Lynne Bonnell's lovely handcrafted velvet pumpkins earlier this month. I even bought two of them and then decided that I wanted more. But at around $40 a piece, it was a little spendy so I went about figuring out how to make them. I showed them off at our Fall Family Brunch and now I want to share one of them with one of you! They are 6 - 7 inches wide made of a soft velvet and are topped with real pumpkin stems. They come in either the majestic purple, sun-kissed gold, or earthy brown (you decide :-)

Sun-Kissed Gold
Majestic Purple
Earthy Brown

Just leave a comment letting us all know what you are Thankful for this year.

There are so many things I have to be thankful for that I could post a whole year of blogs about it. I'm sure you could too :-) So I'll just share that I'm thankful to be hosting Thanksgiving Dinner this year and that Rick will be taking the week off so that we can enjoy the preparation together.
Please don't forget to leave your email address so that I can contact you immediately if you win! I'd like to mail this Adorable Velvet Pumpkin out on Friday so you get it before Thanksgiving! :-)
