Wonderful Christmas giveaway!

Please check out this sweet blog here
She is hosting a giveaway with 3 different prize packages and you choose which package you would love to win. I opted for Group A which is a gingerbread theme package. I am so inspired by the blogs I visit and the pictures of their Kitchen decorated in every space available for Christmas so I am trying to do that in my kitchen. So far I have cleaned off one set of shelves that my hubby built for me a few years ago. I put my set of snowman dishes on it. I have lost one dinner plate and one coffee cup but it is ok. I put my cute little snowman bucket that I bought at
the gift shop at the Wake Forest Unverisity Baptist Medical Center when I worked there. I would always volunteer to work either Christmas Day or Christmas Eve for a coworker that had small children at home! I could not stand the thought of them having to wake their kids up super early on Christmas morning or Christmas Eve to have their Christmas before they came to work. By working Christmas Eves I was able to take advantage of the 75% off of the Christmas items in the gift shop and the gift shop was all Christmas from Thanksgiving on and they had the neatest and cutest stuff and they also allowed us to charge up to 300.00 worth and they would take payments out of our payroll checks! I would save my charge account and use it at this time. I have really gotten some super cute goodies over the years and now that I am not working miss the gift shop greatly. They always carried the sweetest things. They carried a complete line of college collectibles to so I could always add pieces to my son's and future son-in-laws UNC and Wake Forest collections.
Back to the Christmas decorating in the kitchen. I put a cute snowman cookie jar, three sets of vintage Christmas salt and pepper shakers, cute collection of snowman tins, snowman mugs, and the sweet little gingerbread house that lites up and a cute Santa shaker that Shirley from Zetta's Apron made for me. I still need to decorate another set of shelves and the shelf that runs above the two windows above my sink. I put out my set of red enamel tins that I bought from
This online store has the cutest decorative items as well as crafting supplies at great prices. Please check them out. The always have an advertisement in the Country Sampler magazines.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
