I know that this is the season to give rather than to receive, but I have to tell you I've been doing a lot of receiving lately!
Marly from Samplers and Santas had a giveaway last week - I won! Marly gave me a choice of 2 different band boxes - I chose this one with a house and trees.
Inside the box were goodies! I knew she was enclosing the clove studded pear but she surprised me with 2 Yankee Candle wax melts, a mini tin cookie cutter and 4 pieces of faux fruit.
I have a collection of mini tin cookie cutters that I usually put on my kitchen tree - I didn't get to it this year, so next year this tree cookie cutter will be a new addition. For now I'm tucking it into some greenery on a shelf.
The pear has found the nest of my resident partridge. (I think it's a peahen, but we'll pretend partridge)
Marly, Thank you so much for all the wonderful goodies, I will treasure them.
Joanne from Snippets and Scraps of my Mind recently had a giveaway - I won!
Joanne was giving away several items, I was so lucky to receive one of her feather tree kits. If you follow Joanne, you will know that she is always teaching this feather tree as a class.
I would love to take a class from Joanne - and meet her too - but we live about 8 hours apart. Joanne included everything I needed in the kit - including the glue! Her instructions were wonderful and after a couple of hours I now have a wool feather tree.
I should really thank Joanne's new kitten, Quentin for picking my name - Thank you Quentin! Anytime your older brothers are being mean to you, come on over. But you know that you'd have 2 older brothers here too! Thank you too Joanne for a wonderful kit!
My next Thank you goes out to that sneaky Linda from Parker's Paradise. Linda sent me a package that included this cute little pillow that she stitched and a pot holder/hot pad.
Linda is obviously Santa's helper and knows that my pot holders are in terrible condition! I need new ones desperately, but I can never find ones that I really like. I'm baring all in showing these horrible looking pot holders to you all!
These are going in the garbage. Thank you Linda for sprucing up my kitchen!
Finally, on to the winner of my Pass it Along Giveaway -
Pam, From Antique or Not you are the winner! The random number generator picked your number. Look for an email from me!
Thank you all again for my wonderful winnings.
