a sweet treat for you

Happy Monday!
This weekend sure went by fast, but I hope that it was a lovely one for you! I spent my weekend working on a custom order, my embroidery and sewing projects, along with cleaning around the house and washing my car, which is always such fun! ;) Did you do anything special or crafty?
I wanted to start sharing the books and music sheets I got from the estate sale last weekend. The first one up is a music book from 1935 called Children's Songs and Games by Treasure Chest. It is a sweet book filled with old classic songs and some cute graphics!
This is one of my favorites and exactly what I want to be doing everyday!;) 
This song and game is new to me, but so darn cute! 
And, another darling song with a sweet graphic. Wouldn't these be cute in a craft project! I will show you some more later in the week. ;) 
Now, for the sweet treat!! 
The most lovely and talented Donna of Donna's Lavender Nest recently opened up a new online fabric shoppe filled with gorgeous fabrics, vintage feed sacks, quilt patterns, and more! These are some of my favorites fabrics in her shoppe right now!
Bake Shop by Lori Holt
Yuwa Live Life Collection
Atsuko Matsuyama 
and this gorgeous vintage feed sack! Oh my!!
Donna generously sent me some darling fat quarters of the new Atsuka Matsuyma reproduction prints to play with!! I just love them all and can't wait to create with them! Maybe some patchwork coasters, pot holders or a pillow, a summer garland or I have really been wanted to try these sweet fabric jars!! 
 So, in celebration of the opening of Donna's Lavender Nest fabric shoppe...
Donna was as sweet as can be to send me an extra fat quarter bundle of the same prints to giveaway to one of you lovely readers!! Yay!
::Now for the nitty gritty. To take part of this giveaway, I ask kindly that you be a U.S resident. I am truly sorry to my sweet overseas friends in having to exclude you, but shipping prices have doubled (it so ridiculous) and this bundle is a little heavy. I will be working on another sweet and lighter giveaway that will be open to all of you very soon!♥

♥leave a comment telling me one of your favorite fabrics from Donna's shoppe.
♥leave a comment about what crafty goodness you would create with this pretty bundle!
♥leave a comment letting me know you are a follower of my blog

That's it!! Make sure to leave a separate comment for each one! You have until Sunday, May 26th until midnight to enter. I will be announcing the winner on Tuesday, May 28th! 
Best wishes to you all!! 
And, Donna is also having a shipping special in her shoppe. When you order $75 or more, you get free U.S. shipping! 
::GIVEAWAY CLOSED::
Wishing you a beautiful and creative week!
