October 6, 2010


Happy October, everyone! It sure is feeling like it in our neck o' the woods so I'm sure many of you further north are experiencing far cooler temps than we are boasting!
 This is the second of my 'Holiday Giveaways'. I will have one every two weeks until after the first week of December. Then all settles down until after the New Year. I sure hope you'll stick around to see the Christmas I have planned!
This one is simple as stated in my title. I actually have one more piece that I will put up this evening so make sure you come back and see. You just might like it! I know I do but then I'm just a tad bit biased!!

Some Welcome signs that can be used throughout the fall season.
They measure approx. 12"x12"
(Same one, just in a hanging position. Different bow on both.)
An idea from a friend that included some of Holly Hanley's designs. I REALLY like this one!
Measures approx. 18"x15".
A set of 3 different 'Give Thanks' blocks. Cut from 2x4 studs and wired together. Most of my other blocks come apart but I wanted to do something different with these...and I like them! Do you?
(Two of them also have some leaf buttons glued to the bow fronts.)
One of the new designs incorporating my owls. If you like this, then you're going to LOVE my larger owl plaque! (I'll put it up this evening!)
My Owl Plaque...usually, we're the ones getting spooked in the woods but this guy's a bit timid himself!
(Landscape format)
(And portrait format)

You should know how to play this game by now!
Just leave me a comment and let me know what you like! That's it, UNLESS...
You want a second chance! Then become a follower or tell me if you already are one.
A third chance for you would be to blog about this Giveaway or link to it on your Facebook. Tell me what you've done in one comment. Hey, I passed 5th grade and can count!!
I'll run this one until midnight  Monday, October 11, 2010. Come back and see me Tuesday morning on the 12th and I'll have 2 winners listed.

Are you ready? On your mark, get set, GO!!!!

And thanks for participating!
Vicky :0)

After halloween I will be putting out your Give thanks blocks from last year. I love the witch design!! You really should set up an etsy shop and sell your work.

She has an Etsy shop, Tambry! You should check it out.

Okay, my friend, here I am again! You knew I'd love the witch the most, although any one of those pieces could find a happy place in my home.

I am a follower, a fan, and a blogger, but you knew that! :)

Well, since I believe in the importance of "giving thanks" I think I like the "give thanks" blocks the most. Of course, everything is adorable, as usual!!

I'm about to become a follower. I already was, but it won't let me login, so I'm trying a new approach.

I would love to link to your site from my FB...that's the least I can do... I think you're wonderful (and it's not just because you gave my son one of the primary awards yesterday!!)

Best of luck to you.

In honor of my mom, who has been in the ICU for 7 weeks. "GIVE THANKS" is the perfect thing for this year. Although she is having a rough time, we are all giving thanks every day that we still have her in our lives.
