A Christmas Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

Is it snowing where you live?  If it isn't, it won't be long before it is!  We will be lucky to get maybe a dusting here in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area anytime this winter.  Although, we did receive a nice surprise Christmas Day three years ago when we woke up to a winter wonderland.  It's not every year (hardly any) that we see that.  With Thanksgiving only 9 days away and the big kick-off of the holiday season getting ready to start, I decided to have a giveaway for Christmas.  YAY, you say!

Brrr, its cold outside...and

...time to cozy up next to a fire and

 drink something that will warms you up on those cold snowy days.  Doesn't this look inviting?

I could use a hot cup of this right about now.  Now, for the giveaway, I will be giving away an angel from my special collection of Radco Christmas ornaments. She is looking for a new home and wants to be mailed in plenty of time to be hanging on somebody's tree before Christmas gets here.  She is about 15 years old, in mint condition, and no longer available (I think she may be retired because I couldn't find her listed anywhere).

Isn't she sweet?
She comes with a lovely lavender ribbon to hang her from your tree and a set of (6) of my handmade angel gift tags.

(6) Angel Gift tags
These tags are made from vintage digital graphics from EvaAgnes Etsy Shop .  She has some of the most beautiful Old World Vintage looking photos.  I have trimmed the outside of each tag with German Glass Glitter and attached a beautiful satin reversible ribbon of navy and grey.  They are the sweetest tags.

As a special addition to the giveaway, I will also be making a handmade decoupaged glass ornament (which I will show to you later in the week) to give to a second winner along with another set of the gift tags.  So, there will be two winners.  To enter, just leave a comment beneath this post, no other strings attached.  It IS Christmas after all!  HAH

The winners will be selected on December 1st so to allow plenty of time for the gifts to reach the winners before Christmas.

I will be reminding you to enter in each post I write between now and then.  Good luck everyone!


  1. If only we have snow in this part of the world, how wonderful life would be, sigh. Those angel tags are simply magical, definitely will cherish those if I win.

    Thanks for such a spiritual giveaway.

  2. AHH I love your amazing gift tags and the angel is just lovely. Please count me in (if I can enter:)
    I have my fingers xxx
    Have a lovely day - and Kris I think we will be having snow here in the not to distant future - brrrr.

  3. In some ways I wish it would snow, all we are getting still is rain ran rain. I love those gift tags, so beautifully made and I could of course make a wish for the little angel to lift our clouds.

    Take care and wrap up

  4. Hello Kris!

    this is a beautiful and very generous giveaway . I am in!

    Snow came and left again. We are having 7 C, which is rather "warm" for this time of year here in east Norway!

    lots of love to you

  5. No snow here, just rain sometimes. We get snow at odd times here really. I love having something warm to drink and wrapping up with blankets and watching the snow fall when it does come :) The angel tags are stunning and I would love to enter :) I also love that star light, I'd keep it up all year round ;) Hope you have a marvellous day sweets!! xox

  6. Hi Kris - please count me in your giveaway of beautiful Christmas treats. The little angel is grogeous and your tags are of course stylishly good.
    No snow here, in fact it was unseasonably warm here yesterday although the weather forecasters are threatening that a big freeze is on the way. M x

  12. Kris,
    Yes, I would love to enter in your Giveaway! Your angel is so sweet, and I like all the colors in her. And those handmade tags!!! They are so pretty, and I didn't know you made tags. Jess is just starting to make them and is doing a really nice job. I love all the pictures on here, and I want that warm drink right now. Oh, I wish it would snow.

  13. Wowwwww Kris!!! What a gorgeous giveaway! I'm drooling and most definitely would like my name tossed in the hat!

    I'd love some snow:) My dream would be tons of snow for the month of December and then for it to disappear...doubt that will ever happen but I can dream!

  14. Kristie: Of course, count me in! What a nice Giveaway. No, no snow... supposed to be gorgeous here for the next week!

  15. Dear Kris,

    Wauw...what a lovely Give Away!!
    It's so nice the snow and warm fire..what a
    nice time of the year.
    And your Christmas angel and tags are
    so beautifull...Kris I will cross my fingers..

    Love from Marijke

  16. All these photos are gorgeous-I love the flames on the logs-now you have me wanting to return to bed cuddled up with a book. Your tags are pretty-very vintage. I would probably use them as a bookmark. I wish we lived closer so that I could learn some crafting from you.

  17. Oh, I would love your angels! Christmas is not many weeks away, and I have started to look forward to it. Not snow where I am living in Norway now. I also have a giveaway, go to my blog, and see at the right..

  18. Lovely, giveaway! Thank you for a chance to enter! We are also in Texas and it sure feels like winter will never get here! :)
