It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...okay, so it's not really, but it will be sooner than you know! And, I, as the self-proclaimed Christmas Queen of Blogland (wow - now that's a tad bit pretentious, isn't it??), have decided to feature Christmas Ornaments for my first ever giveaway! And why the giveaway you ask? Uhhhhhh....in honor of my 148th post, of course! Yeah, pretty lame. Actually, there's several reasons why I wanted to do a giveaway. The first being that I think they're great. I, myself, have absolutely zero luck when it comes to winning contests, although it doesn't stop me from entering them. Another reason is to say thank you for all of you who still stop by my blog even though I've proven time and time again that I am a full-blown menopausal lunatic with little or no hope of recovery. And thirdly, because I love, love, love Christmas! I'm a Christmas ornament maniac, too. I used to have a rotating tree stand (until the movers broke it, clumsy *&@!# dipsticks! - ooooh, that sounded real Christmassy, didn't it?) and my mom used to say she was amazed that it would actually spin because of all the weight of the ornaments on our tree. I don't think it's in me to have a branch without an ornament. Just seems wrong.... So anywho, back to the giveaway...I have 25 ornaments here that are just begging to be hung on YOUR tree! Just leave a comment for your chance to win. And don't forget, I'll have to have a way to contact you so, if you don't have your e-mail enabled on your blog, I'll need you to leave an e-mail address in your comment. Failure to do so will result in your pretty baubles being sent to the second name drawn. Got it? Speaking of the drawing, it will be held Wednesday, September 12th. Below are some close-up pictures of the ornaments. Click on any picture to enlarge.
The little angel with the blonde hair is so sweet - the glaze on her is very pretty in person. She has what looks like "2002" written all along the bottom of her skirt. The 3 white crosses each have a word embossed in the middle of them. One says Joy, another says Peace, and the third says Love.
These ornaments shown above are what I like to call "The Seagull and/or Magpie Collection". That's because they're very shiny and I'm embarrassingly attracted to shiny objects...much like seagulls and magpies (Sophie knows what I'm talking about, don't you? lol). That copper disco ball looking thing just does it for me!
And here we have "The Silver Collection". Not real silver, of course. But they are all silver in color, except for that iridescent glass one...not sure why it's in this picture. Probably should have put it in with the Seagull ones, huh?
And these are the funnier ones. I love the little elf - he's so cute. And the Cowboy Santa is because I'm in Texas. The 3 gold ornaments will look so pretty nestled in amongst the pretty lights on your tree, as will the burgundy and gold one. The Santa face is just plain ol' fun to look at and the last ornament, which I believe is a snowman on a sled, is one of those ornaments that always remind me of candy.
Okay - so that's it. Now you have to ask yourselves...Can you ever have too many ornaments? Of course not! Even if you don't need them for your tree(s), surely you know someone who is still building their supply. So come on! Enter to win! And yes, I will be more than happy to ship these to the U.K. so - all my blogging buddies from across the pond, please don't hesitate to enter! And spread the word! (Please!)
