December Giveaway - A Few of My Favorite Things


I had so many things runnying around in my head for this months giveaway... Then finally I decided on the above... They are a few of my favorite things... which at this time of year go well together.... I love the birds as I have talked about in past postings... I dont even want to know my budget for seed and such... A while back I was given a box of packaged popcorn balls that were to be thrown out... I took them because I knew the birds would love them.... I put a few in my trees via a wire string and right I was... They ate them up... With the weather getting colder I figured that some peanut butter and some added seed would be good for their bellys... Hence the bird feeder.... While I am out feeding the birds, esp lately, it can get rather cold so a nice shawl is good to have... Hence the hand knitted  multi colored shawl that you see.  Now even a good shawl can not take all the winter cold from you, so when you finally do come in from the cold, a nice hot cup of tea is nice.  Hence the big red cup with a variety of tea to choose from.  Maybe you like honey in your tea, as do I.  Hence the honey stir sticks.. You will love them.  And what would a nice cup of tea be with out a piece of chocolate... A variety of chocolates to nibble on as you watch your birds out your window.  And lastly, today while I was finishing up my grandbabys quilt I did this cardinal square.  I thought it would go wonderful with this giveaway made up as a coaster... just a few of my favorite things to do on a cold december day.

I love the idea of the popcorn balls. We bought some for Halloween giveouts but didn't and so huzzah now the birds can have them. I didn't think about adding pb & seed. Wow I hit the jackpot. Thanks and I agree with the others. Me me me please. Linda in New Mexico

I want to cuddle up in my shawl and stir my tea with my honey stick (that sounds wicked), then stare at my bird feeding, while I dream of a sunny spring morning!

Sarah said...

What an awesome giveaway. I love the theme and connectivity of the items. I've been spending a lot of time (and $$) on the feathered friends in our new yard this year as well. They give us a lot of pleasure and entertainment.

Thanks for entering me in your drawing!

Lynn said...

I just found your wonderful blogspot this morning and I think it will be one of my favorites!! I'm a 63 year old crone who is learning to knit, loves tea and have been following the Goddess for quite a few years now. I would really love to win your giveaway package. It is just such a wonderful combination of things that aren't specifically Yule oriented. Bravo for your skills. Lynn

Bridgett said...

What another amazing giveaway! You always have the best ones. :)

However, since I was fortunate enough to win the runes, I'll bow out of this one and let somebody else get a wonderful Yule gift from you.

I mustn't be greedy, after all. :D

Oh, how I'd like to enter though! LOL
