OK GIVEAWAYS!I have decided to have a little fun this Christmas .
From this Friday, on through Christmas,
I am playing, "What's in Santa's Bag?"

What does this mean?
It means every Friday now through Christmas , I will be giving away

Because it is fun to give,
and the very best part about the spirit of the season

Maybe you are always giving to others.
Maybe you live away from home.
Maybe you are rushing around all season doing for you family , school, church etc.
Don't you deserve a" Just Because" surprise gift too
Well I would love to send y

Every Friday I will have 2 different givea
For the first one all you have to do, is leave a comment up u

For the second one ,
I like to always do a special on

tically entered in the second drawings !!!
If you would like to be entered for both drawings, and als

This week , the first drawing is for the Christmas red ribbon Charlotte doll. She is wearing 3 yards of ribbon, will arrive to you gift wrapped, (of course),

and she also comes with a tiny vintage bottle of silver fairy dust.
To enter this drawing , simply leave a comment on this post from now until Thursday (Thanksgiving ) at midnight.

The second drawing for the blog following friends , is the JOY little bottle brush tree blocks.
I hand dye these trees myself, blocks are painted, vintage Holiday illustrations added, patina applied, and are sealed with several layers of wax and buffed by hand for a yummy prim look.

These little cuties with hand dyed ribbon added to my Etsy later today.

Vintage Broken china junk necklace added to my Etsy later today.
