Announcement! Fall Intrigues Basket Swap!

 
Hi there to all my blog friends. I know it is just the middle of August, and I know you are all busy with other swaps, giveaways and just keeping up with your blog, but I would love to host another little swap for the fall. Why am I doing it? Well, it is just that I am tired of the heat, and yes, I am rushing the fall season, because it is truly my favorite of all the seasons. I live where it is very hot hot, and by golly I am already dreaming of Halloween and Thanksgiving cause I know it is wonderful cool weather then.

Therefore, I am introducing a brand new swap. We will call it the Fall Intrigues Basket Swap. And the only rules are that it needs to be sent in a basket. Let's keep it simple and just put anything into the basket that you wish that has to do with fall. And let's put it all into the basket! So be creative. This is not a vintage persay swap, but you could certainly put in vintage any thing, scrapbook supplies, trinkets, treasures, candy, recipes, or whatever you wish, as long as it has to do with Fall.

When I think of Autumn, I think of bushel baskets of peaches or apples. I think of the changes in the leaves, my granchildren treak-or-treating and I will get plenty of photos of that to scrapbook,gathering of family and being thankful for all of that, and certainly new recipes to try and looking forward to Christmas time. So be creative! Just comment on this post, Email me at this address: ask@comnett.net and put the words fall basket swap in the subject line, and include your NAME MAILING ADDRESS EMAIL ADDRESS BLOG LINK (most important) If you don't have a blog that is Okay, but it is always helpful getting to know your partner through their blog. Make sure you let me know first through this post. Then I will be checking my emial for you. You will have until September 8th to let me know. I will give the ship date to you all later.

One more thing, could I ask a small favor?  Could you save as. . the collage picture above and post it on your blog somewhere, to advertise this swap.   Thanks a bunch!!!!!
