A Joyful Cottage Christmas Giveaway

Hello Sweet Cottage Friends,

First, thank you for all the nice comments on my Country Cottage Christmas Part One post. (Still tweaking and will be sharing Part Two soon.) I'm so blessed to have all of you visit regularly and encourage me with your kind comments.

Yesterday I went to the Christmas Tea and Bazaar just across the street from our cottage. It was so much fun to see all the festive tables, eat some chili (pass on the cookies, though they were really tempting), and chat with neighbors and friends. 

One of my quilting friends, Marietta, had a charming array of handmade items for sale, and I bought a few of them. Another friend, Peggy, had an Avon table set up, where I purchased a few stocking stuffers. As I gathered up my things I thought of my bloggy cottage friends and figured now would be a perfect time to do a giveaway in appreciation for all the love you direct my way. 





My giveaway includes a snowman potholder and Christmas tree tea towel (made by Marietta), Avon Lip Balm and a tube of Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing and Repair (both are perfect to tuck into your handbag).

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is leave me a comment saying you want to participate. That's it. Done.

You don't have to be a blogger to participate, but I will need your email address to contact you should you be the winner.

I'm sorry, but this giveaway is open to U.S. residents only due to shipping costs.

I'll announce the winner right here on Friday, December 11 at 8:00 AM Pacific Time.  

Merry Christmas!

  11. Hi Nancy, thank you for an opportunity to put my name in the hat. I do have a question . . . does your friend Marietta have a blog? I love her snowman pot holder and tea towel they are "sew pretty" . . . she's a very talented gal. These are some great ideas for socking stuffers. We are invited to a Christmas party where we each bring a pair of socks stuffed with goodies. Then we will play the white elephant game where we can steal other people socks. It should be a lot of fun :)
    Happy Holidays!
    Connie :)

  29. I love, Love, LOVE your blog---your gentle spirit whispers through whatever topic you address. I delight in seeing the homes of others---especially the cottages where space is a factor and creativity is not only beautiful but useful and necessary. It has been a Joy to see your dream cottage come to reality. Thank you for sharing each facet of your progress. It was sad when I read of the loss of your first husband,yet to see how the LORD has turned the ashes into a beautiful life of Hope and purpose.

  34. When I was serving a church in the Keys the church held a Tea and Auction for missions. They used white table clothes and china pots and teas, even had the men in suits serving us tea and authentic scones. I loved it. Thanks for the giveaway I would be honored to recieve any one of theses gifts. Debbie

  44. I enjoy your blog and think you are very generous to have this giveaway at this time of year. My family doesn't do a big "family" Christmas event, so I would especially appreciate these lovely items.

    My holiday won't include gifts and food. It will be a time for me to help my father. When he approached his home Friday afternoon, he discovered fire trucks in the street and in the yard. Between the fire, water and smoke damage, it will probably be a total loss. I will be spending my free time this month trying to salvage any family memories that aren't too damaged.

    I ask you and your readers to keep him in your thoughts and prayers. And to hug your loved one more time, to express your love to them one more more time before departing from your holiday festivities.
