A December to Remember Winner #2, and Giveaway #3

My this month is flying by! Already the 4th, and so much to do before the holidays. My husband has been in Florida for the past week visiting his sisters, and since all our decorations are stored high up where I can't get to them myself I can't even start decorating. There will be lots to do this week when he gets back and gets rested.

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!

What nice things to give away. Please count me in on this one.

Jenny said...

I guess it's ok to enter again? More dishes - such beautiful ones too & a pretty piece of linen to go with it.I think they go together very well. I'd love to be in the drawing.

I sent you an email - I wasn't sure if I'm the right Jenny or not. Thanks!

Granny Sue said...

You're the right Jenny :) And your name is still in the drawing, so maybe you'll get lucky. I'll mail your plates tomorrow.

You guessed retirement would be busy - and it is. There is so much to do and so many things to make, fix, find, share... Don't overwork yourself trying to get everything finished (like the outbuildings). I thought that after 2 years I would be 'all caught up' - its year 4 and I haven't even made a visible dent in all the work I want to get finished. Never bored.

That's encouraging, Joy. I am having so much fun, though, it's hard to stop sometimes!

Granny Sue said...

Jenny, I need your snail mail. Email me at susannaholstein@yahoo.com

Jessi said...

Congrats, Jenny! And what a cute set for this next giveaway!

Mary said...

You do have a gift for putting things together. I'd be very happy to win and will be very happy for whoever does . . .
Busy retirement seems to be the life of those with active creative minds . . .

Marie said...

Lucky Jenny! I know she is thrilled that she won! Oh, I love your new give-away, Granny Sue! I would like to be added to the drawing. I think I have been a follower for a long time, but will double check. Thanks, incidently, for coming by my blog and commenting! Take care!

Ronda said...

Ok. As soon as I saw that linen napkin, it beckoned to me. I know it's going to be mine. Great prizes, Granny Sue!

Janet, said...

Congratulations, Jenny. Okay, Susanna, I'm keeping my fingers crossed with this one. You know I love Fiesta (the old and the new). A very nice group of gifts.

Angel said...

Congrats Jenny! This weeks giveaway is just as loverly. I got mine today. :D

Granny Sue said...

I am having such fun with this! The giveaways will vary--not all will be dishes, although there will be quite a few of those because, well, I have quite a few!

Congratulations Jenny! I know you will enjoy the pretty dishes. And Sue, I'm glad you have time to clean before the decorations go up, Mom would definitely approve. :) Love you

Granny Sue said...

Still cleaning :) Decorations this weekend, I hope. Probably Sunday since I'll be storytelling all day Saturday.

Five pieces is better than none, Brighid :)
