Giveaway

I don't keep track of numbers on my blog. I missed my 100th post. But I did notice that I have 99 followers. And that's close to 100. And it's Christmas season. So I've been thinking.....that sounds like a wonderful time for a giveaway! As in...my first ever! So here goes...



Take one enamelware pan.




Add a beautifully edged old piece of linen.




Put 3 wonderful old books by my favorite author, Grace Livingston Hill, in the pan. (More than Conqueror, The Strange Proposal, The Best Man)




Tuck in a little Santa ornament. After all, 'tis the Season!

Like I said, never done this before. So I'll draw the winner's name on Thursday, December 16th.

To keep it simple, all that's needed to enter is a comment on this post. As many times as you'd like.

Have a wonderful, wonderful day.
And please do visit Debra at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday, and Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday and Laurie for Saturday Favorites!!

Looking for some Christmas magic to come my way with this giveaway. Those WONDERFUL old books alone are worth some extra wishing.

I'm going to check after submitting this to see if you bumped up to the big 100 yet.

Just letting you know... This is sweet, but...

Since I have never done a give-away on my blog(s), I just can't join in trying to win the give-away's
on the blog's of others. :-)

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Oh Carol, you don't have to have given anything away, before you win from someone else!! No. No. No.

It's just that I've been blogging for years and years and never "moved myself" to do a give-away. And of course, I have won some, over time. But by now, I'm just too [personally] *embarrassed,* to join in any more give-aways.

This is just me! Just me! Just me, over years and years... I've come to the decision, for myself.

If I ever *move myself* to do a give-away, then I can re-think my feelings.

I just don't want sweet bloggers to think I don't LIKE their give-aways or anything like that!

Yes, I worry too much and over-think too much. -chuckle- What can I say? It's part of my *charm.* NOT! ,-)

Janette@Janette's Sage said...

Well congrads on your numbers...over 100!!
I haven't come for the give away...I just enjoy your blog and seeing what you have done in your Sears Home...it kinda satisfies my desire for having one of my own.

Talk about Nostalgia, I am 73 years old, and my Mother had a pan just like that when I was growing up. We kept it under the sink and it held our potatoes very nicely. Grace Livingston Hill, held my attention for many years, her stories were always so inspiring and held a moral lesson. I enjoy your blog, keep up the inviting chapters of your life in the Sears House. Love it! M. Ray

Montse said...

Luv Luv your idea of displaying books like that, I hope to win!
