It snowed last night! What a wonderful way to start December! It just changes how Christmas feels to me when we have snow. The lights seems to sparkle a little brighter and house feels a little warmer. It was nice to curl up in a quilt while I read my Bible this morning with a hot cup of coffee.

I've seen that many people have a give*away when they reach 100 blog posts. Well, this makes 82 for me. I picked up some really fun things, but they are all Christmas-y and by the time I reach 100 posts, the season will be past. So, in honor of my birthday, which is this week, I am having a little give*away.

Just leave a comment between now and Sunday, Dec. 5 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Just for the fun of it, why don't you tell me how old you think I am;) I promise not to get mad. I'll have one of my kiddos pull a name out of a stocking or something unless I can figure out how to do the random number generator thingy. I will ship internationally, so all my Canadian, English, and Australian readers can join in the fun as well.

Because it's dark and snowy today, my photography leaves a little bit to be desired. I promise these all look lovely in person:)

Oatmeal mint soap by Hugo Naturals. The bag says "Handcrafted from vegan, cruelty-free ingredients, our luxurious soap produces a rich, creamy lather that pampers the skin while it cleans." The soap smells divine!

A reproduction postcard.

Two gift tags.

A "mercury glass" ornament

Two cloth napkins

Good luck!

Comments are now closed. Thank you to all who entered. I will be posting the winner ASAP.

It has been a delight to find you this week. :) And snow - how wonderful!! I can only imagine cold snow in our current Aussie heat! ;) It has been rainy at least, which cools everything down nicely.

These Christmas items look delightful. Blessings. :) xx

Thank you for visiting my blog, and I'm happy to have found yours. I was just admiring all of the little items that you have here. Mercury glass ornaments seem to really be making a comeback, I saw a big display at Pottery barn of all places. So pretty!
