I got nuttin, so how about this?


I haven't been home long enough to do much of anything that would be classified as 'creative'.  I could post a picture of my clean bathroom, but I don't suppose that would excite you.  I've cut out some fabric that I can't show because it's for a gift.  I bought some cool yarn, but can't show that either. 

SO.....

How about a giveaway?

Let me see, what will I have you do in order to get an entry?  I know - how about telling us what your absolute favourite Christmas present was and why?  Leave your answer on this post only and I'll draw for a winner on  Nov. 19th.

You have been generous with me in the past, so don't count me in the giveaway. My favorite present was a stuffed dog when I was about 8. I wanted a dog so badly, a real dog. The stuffed dog had hair I could comb and was life size so, "Sweetie" became my pet.

I wonder if this is why I have 3 "real" dogs now!?!

My favorite was an engagement ring 20+ years ago. Not married anymore but the memory is pretty cool.

Not so easy, but I like to tell everyone it is my Singer steam presser. Terry saw it and thought I would like it and he was wrong because I LOVE it. I cannot be without it. I wear a lot of shirts to work and use it every single day. My grandson uses it to press his dollars too!

It was quite a recent one. A subscription to Fiberarts, a joint venture of HP and HS, not only a lovely magazine, turned out to be the last year of its existence, sigh, but it was one of the last things that HP could really understand to do and plan, and HS guided him through the process so patiently. I'll never part with those mags! Liz

The Best Christmas Present ever arrived a little early in 1976 (oh, so many years ago....and yes I'm THAT old lol) when we were blessed with a baby boy! He arrived on the 14th, his paternal grandmother's birthday. Happy, happy day!

I have had too many Christmasses to choose which was my best Christmas present MA and they were all good so I don't know if I qualify or not.

I was thinking back over the (many) years and couldn't think of an absolute favourite....brain freese perhaps? I do, however. have a gift I have alwys treasured from my sister (hey there Boud) which was a pair of china (chalk) scottie dogs, one black one white. That's about 70 years ago and one of the dogs went missing some time ago but the other one comes out each Christmas and stands next to the sheep in the creche. A bit out of proportion but what the heck.

I badly wanted a doll and it came in the form of a little baby doll and the best part was it had a lovely dress and bonnet knitted by my nana

a chainsaw! when we moved to 100 acres of thick forest i had to clear a space for us to build, yes me alone. Of course we never did build and several years later i sold it, but i felt very big and strong when i did use it!!

ooo what a super giveaway Mary Anne, thank you for a chance to win

being the only grandchild for nine years had its benefits...my German relatives spoiled me rotten...one Christmas when my father was stationed in Germany and we got to spend Christmas with my tantes, onkels and oma (I was probably 8 or 9)...I got so many beautiful dolls (a ballerina with bending parts, a mother and daughter and a bride doll too) AND a little wooden store...it had tiny grocery boxes...there were little crates with faux fruits...it even had a working clock...it was painted blue...gosh you got me going ;)

Christmas has always been a favorite holiday!
