Something fuzzy this way comes . . .

This little guy came to live at my house this week.  A gift from Laurie Anna's Vintage Home.  So fuzzy and cute!  She (he) sits in a place of honor!

Polly from Sassafras Stuff has posted 100 times!  That seems incredible to me.  All of these goodies will go to one lucky person!

Rebecca for Vintage Living is celebrating her birthday with 7 (yes 7!) giveaways!  Christmas birthdays are so special, just like her!  This picture doesn't do this star justice so go and visit her blog to see it in all it's glory!

Linda at Robin's Egg Blues has the most gorgeous blog!  All in blues!  And she is giving away a bunch of blue creations!  Oh be still my heart!

This has to be the last of the Christmas giveaways!  Aren't bloggers so generous?  It is just so interesting to me to visit all of these new blogs and now my favorites list is soooooooo long!

I am seriously thinking of having a giveaway of my own.  My birthday is right after Christmas (which I don't always appreciate), I am almost to 50 posts (I know, kind of sad next to those who post every day) and I think I am close to 50 followers (which just boggles my mind that anyone would choose to follow anything I say!).  So maybe after the first of the year, I will have my own giveaway!  Now -- what do I have that anyone else would want?  Leave me some ideas for something fun in a comment!

My knitting wasn't going so well so instead of throwing the whole thing out the window, I decided to move on to something else.  Cut a whole bunch of stars and made a garland.  Was kind of plain, so I added some birds.  Simple and cute!  Now I have to go back to that darn knitting!  I don't sit still well!

Expecting bad, bad weather starting tomorrow!  Bought my groceries for the holidays today just in case anyone can get here.  So for the next few days I can finally stay home in all it's coziness and wrap presents, FINISH presents and make really good stuff to eat!

Hope all of your holiday preparations are complete . . .

PS -- I wasn't going to post any more giveaways but these are too good to pass up!

Karen at French Charming (what a blog!) is sponsoring a Lisa Leonard giveaway!  Sooooooo lovely!

A birthday celebration is the reason for this one.  Andrea at Vintage Bella Studio is having a birthday!  And she is NOT old!  She has such pretty things!

Merry Christmas Connie. I adore that sweet owl that Laurie Anna sent you. And your garland is so cute. I can't seem to get anywhere on anything these days. I hope to start posting soon though. Thanks for sharing the fun giveaways. I'm heading that way.

I spent the week before Christmas with my son in Nebraska a couple of years ago. My teeth are still chattering. I hope your weather is just right for a special Christmas. Stay safe.

Hugs...Tracy :)

P.S. I always love vintage giveaways. Old buttons and laces, cards, cute nick-knacks, anything to craft with. It seems harder and harder to find those things here. Just a thought.
