My Christmas Giveaway!

Hello everyone! 
It's time for my Christmas Giveaway!

I know it's a not quite Christmas yet, but in order for everyone to have enough time to enter
 my giveaway and get it shipped out for you to enjoy for the season, I'm posting this today.  

This season's giveaway is a hand painted Santa Rolling Pin.  I don't know why but I love painting these darn things.  I've painted quite a few over the years and you can see a
Halloween rolling pin I painted for a previous giveaway here.
Note:  These painted rolling pins are for decorative use only.






















In order to enter this giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment
why you'd like to have this rolling pin. 

How simple is that?

The Santa Rolling Pin giveaway begins today and ends on midnight, Sunday, November 30th.
The lucky winner is picked by a random number generator and will be announced
Monday, December 1st.

Good luck to all who enter!

Fall Home Decor

FINALLY!    
Here we are in the middle of my favorite season of the year!   I just love the Fall with it's cooler weather and the changing colors it brings to us.  I'm already enjoying the crisp air, spiced cider and some of my favorite Fall recipes.

Today I'd like to show you a few glimpses of this season's décor around my home.  Generally, I start my Fall decorating on Labor Day weekend, and then when October 1st comes, I add in the Halloween items.  Since Halloween is right around the corner I figured I better get my post out before it's over.



Once the trick or treaters have come and gone, I remove the Halloween items and add in the Thanksgiving décor.  Then when Thanksgiving weekend arrives, I take away all Fall items, start up the holiday music and begin the Christmas decorating.

I always make sure I get started on my Christmas decorating early as I know how fast Christmas Day can creep up on me.  It's such a busy time of year for most, and for me it's no different.  I also like taking my time and enjoying the process as much as possible.

For some, It might seem like a lot with all the changing of the décor, but I love it all the same. Every year I say I will keep it simple, but somehow all those special items just have to be everywhere.

Are you like that? 


Wishing all of you a happy and safe Halloween!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

I love reading your comments.
Thank you for each and every one!
