A Give-A-Way

Did I say I would post a Give-A-Way today? I did didn't I. If you are here for todays Blue Monday Post, you will need to scroll down to the next post. :-D

Drum Roll Please.....

Ta-Daaaa!

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!


2 lovely Holly and Berry Snack Plates with Matching Mugs. (I ordered several sets of these plates/mugs last year. One set for me, and a couple Dirty Santa Gifts and such. They did not arrive in time for one of the parties we went to and I saved it for this year!
I call it my Santa Snack Plate and Mug. :0))
A Cute Christmas Tree Ornament I purchased from our newly opened Garden Ridge Shoppe.
And the snack plates will be full with the bag of soft and chewy chocolate chunk cookies, I also found at Garden Ridge. Yum they look so GOOD!!!
I also found the cutest Christmas Dish Towel at Big Lots. It has a recipe for Santa Cookies and a Santa Cookie Cutter attached to it.
That is just in case you run out of those Chocolate Chunk Cookies!

Winter has come early to the South this year. I am sure it is that way everywhere.
So I am filling the mugs with ingredients for Snowman's Soup!
Good anytime, but especially on a cold night.

And in the spirit of Bloggerville thriftness, I found this little Santa Tree, new in box, at the local Goodwill Thrift Store. I think he is so adorable.

Rules for the Give-A-Way
  • Live/Ship in the 48 US
  • Comment to this post between now and Thanksgiving Day. I will cut the time off at 6:00 PM Central Standard Time
  • Drawing will be Thanksgiving Night or Friday Morning
  • Post the Give-A-Way on your blog, you will receive one extra entry.
  • Post the Give-A-Way on your sidebar you will receive one extra entry.
  • Anonymous and non bloggers may post to enter, but make sure you leave your email addy! I must have a way to contact you!
Good Luck!!!
