Woo Hoo! I Won!!

Oh, Dear Ones! I just have to share with you today what I've won in a recent giveaway! Our Dear Traci at Beneath My Heart has been having a Christmas in July Giveaway. She's having 5 giveaways for the month. I entered my tiny name ~ and I won! I was so thrilled when the postman came and left me a box!

Traci had even written instructions on the box! I love this stuff!

OOOH! Pretty! I see sweetly wrappedness in this box! :)

Aw, and her own specialness card! Hurry up and unwrap you say!

Ta Dah! Is this the cutest thing you've ever seen?! A personalized gingerbread family just for my tiny family! I love this! The guys have bow ties and the gals have ribbons! Just the sweetest thing ever! Now Traci makes these little cutie pies and she is very good at this! They actually look like gingerbread cookies in person!

Oh, my goodness! Traci's sweetness is overwhelming! Look what she threw in just because! A darling little angel ornament! So cute, so sweet and will definitely be on my Christmas tree this year.

Thank you, thank you so much, Traci, for drawing my name! I love my gifts!
Make sure you go and visit Traci to see her goodies and register for one of her giveaways!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev'rywhere you go;
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in ev'ry store
But the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be
On your own front door.

A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots
Is the wish of Barney and Ben;
Dolls that will talk and will go for a walk
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Ev'rywhere you go;
There's a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well,
The sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.
~sung by Bing Crosby and ME~

  18. Aren't they the CUTEST things. I just love them...they'll look precious on your tree..Oh, dearness, I just can't THINK of Christmas here in this horrible Texas heat. It will make my faux icicles melt....

  19. Congratulations, Sheila. You have such fun things for the holidays. Can you believe we're less than half-way through the year to the holiday season again? Hard to believe. I've been getting emails from a company for the last few weeks - their 'Candy Cane Lane' is open online and we can order decorations, gifts and all kinds of holiday things. Maybe I'll be ready on time - better get going and do my shopping. Wouldn't it be amazing to be ready before Labor Day? Not me - but some people I know probably will.

  20. Ooh, you lucky girl! They're sooooooooooooo cute!

    Justiney :o )

  41. Good Evening Friend,
    I really wanted to pop in a couple of days ago when you wrote about your kitchen but my computer was just plain ol' acting up. First I love your kitchen-if it was all new then us little followers w/ old kitchens would feel so alone-lol! Congrats on your winnings!

  43. Hello Sheila, congrats of winning the giveaway! What a cute little gingerbread family! Your tablescapes just go on forever, you must have a huge collection of tableware.
