Hi Chari! That's a great giveaway - I would love to win. And how exciting for you to be featured. Not too much new here - just enjoying the cooler weather. The big estate sale is this coming weekend. Then, maybe, I can get some stuff done around the house. Haven't gotten the pumpkins out, yet!! Hope you are well. Sally
