A December to Remember: Beat the Blues and Another Winner

Time for another giveaway! I got overwhelmed with Christmas so I'm a little behind--again. Remember, in those dark mists of time before red and green overtook us? Before we get into that one, though, here's a way to beat the winter blues:


"Blue on Blue" this time around! This giveaway includes a blue gingham handmade apron, 2 pretty handmade (but not perfect) doilies, 2 hand-crocheted hotpads,

a pepper grinder with a blue farm scene, cobalt votive in a silver holder (not a great item believe me but it's cute), a Japan-made lusterware creamer in pearly blue with a soft orange interior, a blue willow patter trinket box, two handmade navy blue napkins,

 and a vintage Totes "rainproof" scarf that is big enough to be an awesome table cover.

To get in the drawing, comment on any post this month and become a follower of this blog. If you win, please email me at susannaholstein@yahoo.com with your mailing address, and it sure would be nice if your wrote a post on your blog about your winnings with a link back to me too :) I will be drawing for this one on December 31st, to end the year on a happy note! So continue to comment because each time you do I add your name again to the drawing.

It has been fun to do these giveaways. I will be doing one or two more in January so stay tuned!

This is the "Chicken" giveaway, remember?



And the winner is: Carolyn!

Carolyn, please send me your snail mail address and I'll mail this out to ASAP. Congratulations!

Hello - I found your blog this morning (don't ask me how - you know what it's like when one blog leads to another!) and right away subscribed in my google reader. Just catching up on your December posts, and here I'm already entering a giveaway - whee!!

No blog to link from, sorry.

That's quite all right, Quinn! Welcome :) I'm glad you came by. I have been having giveaways all month, so you just got here in time.

Ronda said...

That's a beautiful collection! I just rearranged my library, it's blue, and your pieces would work there! Did you ever receive your gift from me?

Mary said...

You and Carolyn should both go to Chicken Festival in January!!
Lovely blues! I'm enjoying tea in my yellow cup and saucer. You do find the best things! Thanks again!

Do you happen to have a good recipe for Pineapple Upside Down Cake? I was thinking of my mother's, but my sis just moved and can't locate recipes . . .

Granny Sue said...

I got it today, Ronda! Watch my blog tomorrow :)

Mary, I do have a recipe for pineapple upside down cake. I'll find it and post it. Maybe I should make one...

I just knew you would. You have such skills! (and I know you prefer "from scratch").

Jenny said...

I'd love to win the pretty gingham apron - I don't have a blog to share so I hope that's ok.

Sue, I think I became a follower of you blog thru Google but I already follow you thru facebook. Oh, well I wasn't sure how I had to follow you to be entered into your giveaway. Love the items you are giving away. I have a great kids book I read to my classes. It's called Sue Likes Blue. Have a happy New Year. Can't believe it's coming so soon.
