For the past two months, maybe even the past three, I have taken to scheduling my life out by the minutes. Dinners with friends, phone calls with parents, trips to the grocery store, self-budget meetings and sometimes even sleep. I have been busy- again. I’m bored of saying it, but it continues to be the truth. Maybe I can finally get a hang on scheduling some Culinary Librarian time again though. Can’t speak for you guys, but I know I’d enjoy once more sharing with you on the regular.
So here we are with more stationary and stamps, two month’s worth in one post. I had come up with these little sparkly red apples for September just after my summer vacation on the Cape and was filled with those old back-to-school feelings. So here they are now, untimely but still autumnal and just as cute. These will be sent with vintage flower seed USPS Stamps – fruit and flowers!
Next up is for October. I thought a lot about a Halloween theme, as it is rapidly approaching. But unlike the sweet apples, Jack-O-Lantern’s with black envelopes wouldn’t translate as well come November 1 (when I will be ending this month’s giveaway period). So I opted to look a little further out and consider what I would want to send out after Halloween. Thanksgiving naturally comes to mind. A prime opportunity to do the “thank you” notes I’ve been wanting to make-- good year round and often needed unexpectedly for sending a note of gratitude. Choosing my favorite French flavor I went for “Merci” in that beautiful Queen’s Gold Embossing Powder with sage and eggplant for paper colors. And these new USPS Ray Charles’ stamps to go with them!
So here’s the deal – I’m giving away both of these this month, but to two different people. Answer the question below and then tell me which one you would like: “Apples,” “Thanks,” or “Apples/Thanks” (if you'd be happy with either). Regular rules apply, must enter by 11:59pm EST on November 1. I will announce the two winners soon after the first! The question:
What is your FAVORITE food to eat this time of year? First thing that comes to mind!
Enter, tell your friends, pass it around and I’ll try to write more! (And if you actually care about reading more on the CL, please let me know with your comment! XO)
