Tuesday's Treasure with Melody and September Giveaway.

Today I am sharing my little collection of "Apples". I have no clue where the desire for this little collection started...maybe it's because I love red or it reminds me of the country or maybe it's because I adore 'apple jelly jam'. I do know I love them though. There are wooden ones, vintage china ones, fabric ones, a beautiful ceramic one..a recent birthday gift and lots of apple themed things...I even have an 'apple themed quilt'.
So here is to the humble "Apple" a true beauty of nature who shares it's treasures with us in so many ways.
To see what other Treasures are being shared today be sure to visit MELODY  and while you are there be sure to congratulate MELODY on her recent 400th post. You will enjoy visiting her wonderful blog.

SEPTEMBER GIVEAWAY
My giveaway this month is a celebration of 'Cupcakes & Roses'.
I have my 'Sweet Cupcake' tote bag pattern, some gorgeous rose buttons and cupcake buttons from my friend  TRACEY from Rose Petals Past and some soft  pretty 'rosey' fabric. I will have a 2nd draw of my 'Cherry Cupcake Angel' cushion pattern. (I know I've had it before but I like her)
If you would like to be in the draw for this giveaway simply leave me a comment. I shall draw the winners next Tuesday on the 20/09/11. Good Luck!
