Appliqued Apple Bag (Give away Alert!)

I whipped up a couple of these before bed.  They're a little upcycled too-because I cannot throw away perfectly good Christmas ribbon. They're good for holding tiny things-like snacks, markers, trinkets, toiletries, etc.  I made them as a Thank You-for someone special who always goes above and beyond for my kids.

Got me thinking, I haven't thanked my blog readers in a while.  That's right.  I haven't thanked you.  Your following, daily checks, Emails, comments and messages.  Due to my husband's work schedule, I've been alone a lot more than usual.  But, I don't feel alone because I have all of you readers to keep me company.  And I thank you for that!

How long has it been since I've had a give a way?  A while.  Too long.  So, I whipped up another couple of these little bags-similar to these but slightly different ribbons- and am all set to give them out to you.

So thank you for being a reader.  And thanks for sharing my space with others. 


  1. Hi, found this link through a post on FB Homesteading Plain & Simple (love that site). I have shared this link on my FB page and signed up for your newletter through email. I am fairly new to country living and really wanting to be more self-sufficient by the time my hubby retires in 10-15 years. I love your pics. Haven't had a chance to look through all your blog but planning to, its looks really interesting. Good luck in your blogging.

    1. Thank you for stopping by! I also enjoy that FB site. It's nice to find 'like minded' folks. I love that you're working on being more self sufficient. We're always working to do the same. :)

  3. Cute very cute. Oh do not ever feel alone. Bloggerland is full of friends who also feel that way. Blogger family is the best. B
