Last night, the next thing & a GiVEAWAY!


  What a Fa.B.U.LOUS night last night- it was The365 Swap.
{This gets bigger & better every time- it's so fun!} 
If you haven't come before you ReaLLy need to plan to purchase a ticket to come to our next one that will be next year sometime.  

-I hauled our vintage typewriter down to The Swap to welcome everyone to the Name tag Station- so cute!-

-The name tags I created this year, each Cultivate girl makes name tags to bring so that they are each unique,  I made mine out of corrugated cardboard, old poker chips, a bottle cap & a paint chip. Easy!! 

Anyway such a creative, inspirational place to be last night. The "famous" chalkboard was used in a different way this time around, lots of bright orange pumpkins galore lying around, hay bales wrapped with fabric, quilts & burlap to sit on, homemade root beer brewing away to quench your thirst & a wide array of delectable sweets to choose from & not to mention the AMAZING collection of goods to Swap.  
{It was great this year- all the Swapp-ettes all brought some great treasures to Swap} 
Here is what I walked away with last night- 

-Don't know what I'll store in the metal file box yet, love the red clock & I think the springs are going to make great candle holders. Thanks whoever brought these!-
I'll post more pictures soon about the Swap so check back later. 

Ok... now for the next BiG thing on my calender-
{hopefully on yours too- wink, wink} 
Hollyhocks & Honeybees 
Fall Show 2011 
Thursday the 29th from 6-8 p.m.
Friday the 30th from 10 a.m.- NooN
{My home- 4011 Lilac Lane in Mt. Green} 

Since I adore the Fall season so much & hosting an H&H show to celebrate the Fall holidays coming up I've decided to have a GiVEAWAY. 
I'm giving a $20.00 gift certificate to Taggart's Grill.
{Taggart's is a great restaurant up the Canyon just past Morgan- 14 miles from my house} 

 I want you to go enjoy a piece of their delicious Carrot Cake {I'm always talking about} while you are up this way already. 
The artichoke chicken soup & pita bread is a must try too- so come hungry! 

--So all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on my blog ANYTIME until Tuesday {the 27th} night at MidNiGHT. 
**The more comments you leave the BeTTeR- you'll get a entry everytime you leave a comment. 
{Trust me - the Carrot Cake is worth it!!} 
-GooD LuCK to you all- 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend- I'm off to take my kids down to the McQuigley pumpkin patch to have a GiaNT pumpkin picking party.  Good Luck to my husband Ty & neighbor Matt as they go to the Utah Giant Pumpkin Growers way-off tomorrow at Thanksgiving Point.  
-Grow BiG or go Home!!-

I still want to come and get a 31. I am such a major slacker. Sorry! I had the baby. Wahoo! He is just so sweet. I will make it over there eventually and if not before the boutique, I will come the night of in hope that there will still be some for me.

Hi Melissa, I didn't make the swap last night but would surely love to go to Taggarts...I absolutely LOVE their Carrot Cake. The French Dip Sandwich is wonderful as well. A night out is well worth working for. I'll be to the boutique for sure!
