"A Christmas Giveaway"






Like you, I am getting ready for Thanksgiving.....you know...all that list making, grocery shopping, cooking, etc., so I won't be posting again until very late, Sunday, November 29th. Also like those of you with relatives coming, my son will arrive tomorrow and other relatives later in the week.
Not having seen him in a year, I plan on spending as much time with him as possible, so I won't be posting until he is on the plane back to San Francisco.

I thought this might be a really good time to have a GIVEAWAY! So....if you would like to have the goodies I am showing here....kindly leave a comment and I will have my 'favorite' son choose the winner before we drive him to Little Rock to the airport on Sunday, the 29th. I'll definitely post the winner's name late that night.

So here's what the winner gets: the current issue of Somerset's "Holidays and Celebrations."
(My friend Sherry and I are addicted to some of Stampington's magazines...so much so that I think we need to start a Somerset Anonymous group...you know, like AA.) There is a vintage hanky, with a beautiful Christmas looking crocheted edging. Some bird stickers, two 3D Christmas stickers, a lovely glittered "Merry Christmas" with glittered gift tags. And, three hand-embroidered Redwork Christmas ornaments I made myself. They are about four inches square.

As Ben Bailey says on Discovery TV's Cash Cab: "You in?" If so...comment, my friends, I'd love to send these things to one of you. Actually, I'd like to send something to ALL of you, but that's impossible....so one person is the best I can do.

So, I wish you all a lovely, happy and safe Thanksgiving!!! And, good luck....I'll let you know who that 'one' is Sunday, the 29th!!! Have FUN and enjoy your precious PEEPs, young and old, big and small and hold them close. Take care......pat

Have a great visit with family. I'm going to have to figure out some sort of holiday give-away for my blog too. It is very generous of you.

Put me in also. I am going to spend Thanksgiving at Disney World with my daughter and 17 year old grandson. I have never been there before so the kids are going to show me the sights. This will be a very different Thanksgiving but we will be together. That is what matters. Have a good holiday. Sandi

I love those glitter birds, Pat! Did you make them? Did you find the instructions in one of the Stamington magazines. I collect them too. Have you seen the new ones detailing Where Women Create? In fact, I think that's the name of the magazine.

I would love to be included in your drawing. You are so generous.

Throw my name in the hat too. Having your son home for the Holiday is SO great. Our nest is empty and all our chicks flew far away, so I envy you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Judy said...

Hi Pat I guess I picked the right day to come out of hidin!! I've almost completely given up blogging because of the time especially this time of year. Just too many other things to do. I would love to win all your goodies. I love some of Somerset mags too. Aren't they wonderful? And to have something handmade by you would be so special. Have a great thanksgiving and enjoy your company especially your son.

I'm definitely IN. I may have to come spend a week with you to learn about doing the redwork. (does that sound like a threat?) I love it and have several antique pillowcases with redwork but have never done any myself. The ornaments are great. Happy Turkey Day with your family! Mary

Donna K. said...

Count me in! And let 'favorite son' pick me! Great giveaway. Have a fabulous Thanksgiving.

Christine said...

Hi Pat, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I wish we had that tradition here in Oz, it always looks like a great celebration on the US TV shows we see here. I'd love to go in your draw too so please put me in the hat, by the looks of the comments it'll have to be a large one, LOL.
Hooroo,
Christine in Sydney, Australia
