The Winners have been picked!!!

I'd like to say "Thank You" to all who have participated in my first Gift Give Away! The response was more than I ever expected and I really do appreciate all your kind comments on my artistic endeavors.

Merry Christmas from our house to yours....



The decorating has been done, the handmade gifts are almost finished for family and friends (sorry, I can't show pictures as it would reveal the surprizes!).... here a just a few of my holiday decoration pictures to share with you...

a collection of captured favorites as the centerpiece for the dining table...



my primitive twig tree filled with handmade and whimsical ornaments....



doesn't everyone have a fish or two on their tree?



a doll collection sits under the tree...



and now on to the winners...

with my trusty little helper, Squire donned his elf hat...



all the entries were put into my favorite vintage tin, with Santa and the Angel as witnesses....and the curious Snow Crystals looked on with anticipation...



while the goodies wait to be packaged and make their travel to their new homes....




the drum roll......the winners are......


"The Littlest Snow Angel"........goes to Sandra Evertson *** She writes one of the most beautiful blogs with absoulutely gorgeous photography... always inspiring and it's a must see!


"Mercury Glass Ornament"........goes to Chris of Designs by CK *** He is the "King of Halloween"!!! His attention to detail in his art just astounds me and I'm very proud to own of piece of his work!

Oh Marie the pictures of your decorated home are gorgeous!!! Alas, with the tree farm and two cats that act like they are 3 months old my decorations stayed in the boxes this year. Hopefully the not so little Monkey-cats will be better behaved next year!!

Congrats to the winners!!

Hello! Happy Holidays!
I just wanted to drop you a note to THANK YOU! I received your Wonderful Snowman, and he is Adorable! Every detail is perfection, I love the dots that are his smile and his little pinched nose and the cute little wire arms and how you put just the perfect little bit of shadow around his eyes! Thank You so much, I will Treasure him!
