Annual Online Sale ! and Giveaways!!

We are back from New York!
It was definitely  a whirlwind fast paced trip. Miss Paula drove from Boston to 
join us again, and we three had soo much tired loopy fun!!!! We did the 
Country Living Magazine Holiday Show by day,
and at 6pm each night whisked out to the Tarrytown train station 
to Grand Central to see what we could see.
 Reagan can cross several items off of her "bucket list"
now, as she saw a real Broadway production "Cinderella", which she claimed was
 the "best ever" :)
We also went to Hoboken  NJ on set up day to see her ultimate dream 
"Cake Boss" Carlos Bakery.
We completely lucked out on this one as the line to get in usually goes
for blocks. We walked right in!

We also got to see the tree at Rockefeller Center . We
were absolutely soaked to the bone at this point as it rained all night. 
But, that didn't stop us one bit! 

We had a wonderful time both at the Country Living Fair meeting so many wonderful people (More on them on later post), and seeing the wonderful sites of  New York City. 
Only downer was getting stuck in New York when they cancelled our flight due to the back ups from the weather. It was a little tricky getting home to say the least , but here we are just a little later than predicted :)

Ok on to the important info this week:)

Annual Online Holiday Sale!

This is my largest offering of dolls and goodies of the year at one time. 
I am changing the date by 2 days as we were delayed in getting home, and I want 
to make sure I have everybody's travel gear on , so they can be quickly shipped out to their new adopted homes without delay, as it is the so so busy Holiday Season at the post.
 There will be goodies big and small. All will be offered on 

Tuesday  DECEMBER 17 , 8:00pm eastern time

a full preview will be posted on Monday December 16 so you can see
what will be offered.

Can't forget other goodies....

The Holiday Giveaways!!

The last giveaways of 2013! 
Thanks so much for visiting my blog whether you are a first timer, or we
have been blogging friends for years :)
I got to meet some of you this year at the Country Living Fairs, and that is 
always such a treat to put a face to a name and meet in person! This is 
my last giveaway for the 2013 so let's go out with a bang!
First we have a spun cotton angel with wings made from a friendship quilt from 1942, and
of course one of my vintage German doll baby heads. Such a sweet face she has.

Second Giveaway is this vintage  Dresden cotton Stocking ornament. The santa 
is a beautiful vintage Dresden , and I have created the cotton batting stocking with vintage tinsel, and  vintage mica flakes for a soft sparkle,    in the style of the old German cotton batting ornaments from the early 1900s. 
What do you have to do?

Two Random drawing winners will be announced Tuesday Dec 17 at 830 pm.

A vintage putz house from the 1940s with original lufa tree soo cute, a hand died bottle brush tree,  6 yards of pretty pink ribbon on this lovely little girlie, and...
