It's Here! It's Here!

The giveaway prize I won from the very sweet Julie Marie over at Idllyhours just arrived...

It's beautifully wrapped in orange and black tissue paper...So Halloweeny, I love it.
Let me open the card first...Awwww! How very sweet Julie Marie. Thank you so much for your sweet and kind words...and my prize!
And here it is, The Best of Martha Stewart Halloween Handbook...Yay! And it couldn't have arrived at a better moment.

You see, I was just about to try out my new petite reading nook.

I had just made myself some tea.

I chose this cup for my tea today because it matches my settee, plus it just happens to be one of my favorite cups...

You might recognize this settee. First it was in my bedroom then it worked its way to my living room and know it's here, in my petite reading nook.

And now if you will excuse me...I'm off to join my little reading buddy over at my petite reading nook with my tea and awesome prize.
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit today.
Have a wonderful autumn day.

Hugs and Kisses,
