Christmas Give-A-Way and holiday pictures.

All comments, now through Wednesday the 12th will be eligible for my Christmas drawing! You may post once each day. What am I sharing....well this and that. And maybe even just a tad of other. LOL If I have over 25 names, I will draw 2.
And here are pictures of a bit of my Christmas cheer. The nativity is my most prized Christmas possession. My mom gave it to me a few years back and it is sat out on Thanksgiving night. It was my honor as a kiddo to set it out at home. And she knew how much I loved it. I painted the old book page in the frame behind it. The wallhanging is one of the first I ever made. I was so proud of it! LOL Now...not so proud! LOLOL



Michelle stitched and punchneedled this for me. I love it. Her first punchneedle project too I think.

Daddy carved this wooden angel.

This is a counter in my kitchen we do not use. It is a hodge podge of red/white granite ware, old utensils and jars, bears and baskets. The gingerbread men are there year round. I painted the snowmen faces on the muffin tin. I rusted the tin a bit by washing it in vinegar water. Then took it outside and sprinkled salt on the wet tin. A couple of days and we had rust. Flipped it over and repeated the water/salt on the other side.

Happy Sunday everyone.

Love your Christmas decorations. The painted book page is wonderful, you are so talented! I love old Christmas memories too. I still have my old knit stocking that is 52 years old!

I love your nativity set. I've been looking for years for a baby proof one so that I an get the little ones used to having one, and this year we got one from Fisher-Price. I think it was so sweet for your mom to give this one to you.
