WoooHoo... I's finally Give-Away Time!! Also Photo's To Share Of OLM's Ornament Swap.


Good Evening Friends, Well after many hours..... a bit of hair pulling and a few choice words ( Pic Monkey gave me fits all day, in editing my photo's Ugh!)  I finally have my giveaway ready to share. My Olde Time Santa giveaway will run now through December 7th. and I will announce the winner on December 8th, this way you will have it in plenty of time to display and enjoy them for the up coming holidays. This giveaway is for all my friends living in the US and Canada only. Sorry but shipping rates are to expensive to ship else where. New followers always welcome. Please make sure I have some way to get a hold of you if you do not have a blog or are a non-reply blogger.  If you would like to be entered into my giveaway please leave a comment telling me so, also for a bit of fun I would love to hear what your favorite childhood memory of Christmas was and what was the earliest time you can remember getting up to see what Santa brought you. :)  For an 1 extra chance post with link back to my blog on your sidebar. For 2 more extra chances do a post on your blog with a link back to mine, telling about my giveaway. Please leave a comment telling what you have done and leave it in all one comment, telling me how many chances to put you in for.
Now that all the particulars are done lets get this giveaway started, shall we?
This giveaway is for my Olde Time Santa, Snowman and Sled. Santa and Snowman have been all handmade by me and given that old time look. My pictures really do not do justice to show the old worn time look off. Santa stands a full 9 inches tall and his little friend is approx. 51/2 including sled. They are both made from ornsburg and wool fabric and grunged to make them look old time.  I am also including the feather tree with rusty bells which I thought would make a great addition to this little vignette!
I would like to take this time to thank each and everyone for stopping by and visiting from time to time. I truly enjoy your visits and comments.  I have met and made so many wonderful friends through this blogging journey of mine and I am truly blessed for all your love and support and look forward to each and everyone of your visits!
Before I close I would also like to share with you my wonderful ornaments that I received from Old Lady Morgans Ornament Swap that were made by some very talented friends. First one is a wonderful woolie ginger made by Trace from Granny Trace Scraps &Squares. I am so in woolie "LOVE" with this sweet lil' guy!

Next I received another wonderful ginger, this time from sweet Brenda from The Rusty Thimble. This little guy is grunged to prim perfection and will look so awesome on my tree!
Wait there's two more, yes two more..... look how lucky I am :) *Giggles* The next one came from another talent artist named Janet from Olde Crow Primitives. This little crow is just prim delightful and I cannot wait to display him along with all the rest on my tree!
Next is this wonderful Belsnickle made by sweet Amy from Bumble Bee Lane. I was in Awwww when I opened Amy's, as a couple years back I was lucky enough to win a giveaway that Amy was hosting and it was for a wonderful salt glazed Belsnickle and since that time I have been hooked.....and have been collecting them ever since!
And.... this little bag of yummy goodness was included in my box from our Sweet friend Marie, from Primitives By Old Lady Morgan. I have to say it has been quite the challenge to save this little bag of goodies to show off.....but as I write I am munching and punching letters.....Oooooh soooooooo good! hehe I wonder how she knew I have a thing for sweets! heheh
I would love to thank Marie for hosting such a fun swap and for all her hard work and time putting into it and  making it such a great success! I would also like to thank all the wonderful talented gals for their beautiful creations. I love them all, and I am so looking forward to displaying them on my tree as soon as I can get it up and decorated.
Ok friends, on that note I am going to close, I hope you haven't fallen asleep on me with such a long post tonight. I thank you all for sticking with me and letting me share. I hope you will decide to join in on my giveaway. If you would like to visit any of these wonderful talented gals I have provided the links to their blogs (Just click on the blog names and it will take you there). Good luck to all!
Until next time friends,
Big Hugs Mary
