PICTURES OF MY CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY

I guess I have kept you all in suspense long enough! So I'm going to go ahead and post pictures of my Christmas In July Giveaway that is being hosted by A LOVELY THING. Her link is posted to the right of my blog if you are interested in joining in the fun.
So here it is. I tried to find a little something for everyone to enjoy. I hope you like it.

You will win a darling Christmas tea cup and saucer that has a Chintz pattern on a yellow background. There are teddy bears, rocking horses, Christmas geese, drums, stockings and a lot more darling items on the print.
There is a 2nd Christmas tea cup and saucer so you can enjoy tea with a friend or family member and talk about all the upcoming events for the holiday.
This is an Old Country Road Seasons of Colour by Royal Albert.
Next comes some ornaments to hang on your tree. I picked out the pink with glitter stripes for all you pick lovers, a vintage pink with white stars for you vintage collectors and a darling little Christmas tea pot ornament for you tea fans.

You will also get a Santa Pez. I thought this would be fun to toss in. We can all use a little sweet treat and doesn't Pez remind you of when you were a kid.
Then there is this package of Hallmark Christmas thank you cards. I hope everyone sends thank you notes for all the thoughtful gifts you get from friends and family. If not, well you can this year.

We all take tons of photos at Christmas time so I thought this cute little scrapbook would be cute to use for them.

Now, if you have not yet entered this giveaway you can do so by leaving a post either here or on my other post called Christmas in July giveaway.

If you want a better chance to win, you can put a link to my giveaway on your blog and I will enter you a 2nd time. Just be sure to come here and let me know you did it.

I will ship world wide so this giveaway is open to everyone.

If you don't have a blog please put your email address on your post so I can contact you if you win.

I will be drawing the winner on Aug 1st.

Good luck to all who enter!

Hugs,

Joanne

Good Morning my sweet friend,Yes You only see one, :o( I was so sad, you did such a good job wrapping! it was in a jillion pieces I think it was just it's time to go to Glass heaven! Thank you so much I feel so blessed! Your amazing, Your giveaway is really nice to for July! I loved reading your post of your sweet kids and doggies, aren't they such a big part of our lives! We used to dress ours up also! too funny. Ok now I never knew you were related to Martha! You have been holding back on us! I need to bake something and post,you all probably think I make everything from a box. It has been too hot to cook here! I am not complaining , but...you just don't want an oven on! I also use to be the Cook at our Lodge in Alaska, and EVERYTHING was from scratch, LOTS of food, it would be nothing to be cooking for 30 people a day, three meals a day, 7 days a week, I got so burned out, then the kids left home, so now it is 2, my husband and I eat very natural and simply! But my friend your goodies are making me want to whip up some zuchinni bread Yum and that ice cream! do you share recipes? Have a great weekend! XO Diana Lyn

I am trying to catch up with my blog visits and you had asked about tips on doing mosaics. The best tip I have is to pick up a couple of mosaic how to books at Barnes and Noble or Borders...they have beginning books that take you step by step throught the process. I would love to see your finished project!
