OH! I LOVE OCTOBER! It has always been a special month for me. There is so much to celebrate beginning on the first of October with my youngest daughter's birthday. (She was due in September, but she knew better and waited a few days!) My own birthday follows on the ninth, but that is only a small part of why I love this month. October brings welcome relief to relentless humid days here in the South with its crisp, cool, and dry air. The Earth puts on a fashion show with coordinated perfection as the trees show their true colors. Football teams and their bands play in weather the way it was intended and fans can enjoy being outdoors at their tailgating events. And, of course, it all ends with a bang on Halloween. Houses are decked out in spooky splendor and children parade in gleeful glamour while candy makers burst into smiles to see the sweet wares they prepared in the off months fly off the store shelves from now until Easter. To celebrate a special birthday this year, I am offering my first blog giveaway. It is a wedding garter I crafted just for fun. Since Halloween is on a Saturday, I thought there might be some brides who would enjoy having a whimsical garter for their wedding day. Perhaps you just think it would be fun to wear with a costume. Just comment here and tell me why you are entering. Tweet it and I'll enter you for a second chance. (Be sure to give me a link to your tweet.) Add a link to my blog from your blog for even another chance. Winner will be chosen on my birthday and the announcement will come the following week so I can get this shipped in time for Halloween! Happy October, Everyone!
