2009 Fun and Frolic Holiday Vintage Halloween Giveaway and Kickoff

Halloween Giveaway and happenings.....

It took just a little longer than I thought to load, but "2009 Staffordshire Garden Holiday Fun and Frolic " is off and running, and I was so excited to see what my Son had done with one of my little vintage witches. He really truly made her magic! (see her here )

Other exciting news for September is 2009 Somerset Holidays and Celebrations is out on the stands. I was thrilled to be included again for the 3rd year ,in this wonderful celebration of all holidays. This year I have a Halloween witch and Halloween box included in the issue. I have already read mine cover to cover a couple times but seem to discover new creations I did not spy before , every time I open it. That is the fun of it of course.

September 18-20 is Country Living Magazine Fair in the beautiful German Village in Columbus , Ohio. Staffordshire Garden Designs will be there this year. If you are able to attend, I just found out that I will be in tent #6, (not sure what number yet) stop by to say Hello!

And Now For The Giveaway!!

In honor of the "Holiday Fun and Frolic" kickoff on the S
taffordshire Garden Designs website, (and really just because I love Fall and Halloween,) I have decided to have a giveaway one of my very favorite little witches for this year

She will come to the winner strung on a 24" black ribbon, and gift boxed.
Just leave a comment on this post and I will draw the winner next Friday September 11th.

(side note : if you like the witch Mason made "magical" for me on the Staffordshire Garden Site ( , please let him know in your sweet comments . He is 16, and although he is my tech "specialist", it was his only second time working with this program. I was so excited he was able to that for me !)
