Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway ~ The Last Hurrah

My final Christmas Picture Share was last night...
Our Family Tree & Living Room

well, I knew I wasn't done sharing yet, LOL, I already have a new addition to my decor!
Gary has decided that my old Farmhouse Table is a great place to lay, he's there more than he's not.
Darn Cat!

Winner of the
Twelfth Day of Christmas Drawing

Wendy ~ Ravenwood Whimsies

Congrats! Wendy

I will continue to post pictures of the gifts as soon as I know the winners have received them.  I don't want to
ruin the surprise for them...

Yesterday I ventured out to do some Christmas Shopping...finally.
The weather was so nice, today the temps will be in the 50's (I can't believe this and I know we
are going to pay dearly for it too)  While out, of course I had to stop into the GW.  Is is too early to buy
Easter Stuff?  I spent less than $3.00, this is what I found...

Away in a Manger ~ $.99
The stable needed some attention, I simply added some new sheet moss that I gathered this fall
and a Rusty Star to the peak.

Cute Little Easter Tree $.69
not sure if I'll use the tree, but the Vintage looking Eggs were just to sweet to pass up

Mache Container $.79
and it has a nice lid~another great place to hide lil' treasures!

Today I am going to work on the last four gifts for the Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway Winners.  I am hoping to have them all mailed out by Friday.  And, I'm already thinking about my next giveaway!

Have a Blessed Day my Friends,
