It's still winter so…PENGUIN FREEBIE!

It's been very cold here in Colorado this past week. Below 0 most days, brrrrrr! Seems appropriate to have a winter theme freebie, yes??  How about PENGUINS? All this super cute fabric came in a donation and it's so, so fun.

While I was going through the fabric, it reminded me of a book my friend Stephanie gave me for my 22nd birthday. Many moons ago…
Stephanie told me the book reminded her of me because I was such an individual and so was Tacky…
The gist of the book is that penguin hunters come to capture Tacky and his friends but are confused when all the penguin, under the direction of Tacky, start acting weird, not like penguins at all.
The hunters get so confused that they run away. Go Tacky! That fabric on the top of the stack in particular reminds me of the book.
How about it? Would you like to be one of 18 lucky people to win a super cute PENGUIN bag?? You can be an individual while shopping!

I love (and still do)the Nancy Drew series. Am I showing my age?

These penguin bags are so cute. If I am lucky to win, my grandson will get it, because his dad loves penguins! Dad wouldn't carry this bag, but my 16 month old grandson will. Hee, Hee.

One of my favorite children's books is Does Anyone Know Where a Hermit Crab Goes. When the kids were young we vacationed at a beach in Maine every summer. Part of our vacation ritual was to go to the local book store ( sadly it is no longer there ) and the kids would pick out books to read at the beach. I always picked out one children's book that I thought would be fun to read and this was my favorite. It brings back lots of wonderful memories and I am hoping to read it to my grandkids too!
Thanks for the great give away! lostsocks(at)aol(dot)com
