What I have been doing, though, is cleaning. I've just started on what I want to get done this winter. I retired in May and was immediately caught up with gardening work, then storytelling work began in earnest for the summer and fall months and of course we always have a lot of visitors in the summer months. Now things are slowing down with only 3 or 4 storytelling performances this month and none scheduled in January--someone call and hire me please! :). I plan to really get this house in order. Every closet, cabinet and drawer needs to be sorted, windows need to be cleaned--you know how it is when you've been running hard and not stopping to take care of things. I want to get into the outbuildings too.
But I digress! It's time to announce the winner of the second giveaway for A December to Remember, and show you what the third giveaway will be. Here is what I have to give away next:
a bright yellow older Fiesta cup and saucer,
a plate (probably from the 30's?) you might have seen before on my blog,
a cute little angel hinged ceramic box from World Bazaar,
a book of Confucius's wise sayings,
and a lovely embroidered salmon colored linen tablecloth.
These things just seemed to belong together somehow. Do you think they do, or am I just crazy?
Good luck! Leave a comment and become a follower and your name goes in the hat. Each time you comment on a post, I put your name in the drawing again.
Now for the winner of the last giveaway. Remember the plates?
And the winner is.....JENNY!
So Jenny, email me your snail mail and these will be in the mail to you as soon as possible.
Good luck to everyone else in the next drawing!
Now, I am going out in the woods to gather some running pine. It's wreath-making time!
