Lucky, Lucky Me :)

Kelley over at With Hook and Needle had a "secret" give-away.  She took people who commented on her blog over a number of months and entered them in her give-away.  Debbie from Woolen Sails and I were the lucky winners!  We each received one of Kelley's hooked snowmen.  OH MY!!!  It is just wonderful.  

He measures about 15" x 16" and is much "dirtier" in person :)

Don't you just love those rosey cheeks?


Kelley, thank you from the bottom of my pea pickin' little heart!!!  I just love my little snow guy and you can be happy knowing he is in his forever home :)  AND . . . she also sent me the most wonderful piece of wool.  More than a half yard of a luscious dark wool ~ perfect for a background.

Christmas decorating was going very well and I emphasize "was". I've been close to finishing but have not been home for more than an hour or two for days on end and that is not going to change in the near future.  Tomorrow I am getting grandson Jake and Thursday evening is his Christmas program.  AND . . . I think I am having 12-15 people here for lunch on Saturday.  Even though I don't have to prepare the food, the house needs to be D-O-N-E and I'm not sure how that is going to happen.  I am still not stressing but that may soon end . . . lol!  Wish me luck!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

  5. Hi Lauren, oh my stars!!!!!!!!..what a sweet hooked snowman rug....love those rosy cheeks to......Congrats on the win......Enjoy your time with Jake.......Blessings Francine.

  6. Oh Lauren, Congratulations on your great win. That cute snowman rug looks like he was made to order especially for you. Maybe he thinks he's a pug and wants to be picked up. Wow, all that wool... how very lucky.

    It looks like people gather at your house because they feel so welcome. Don't fret about having the house "DONE" and just enjoy each person as they are more precious than how prepared the house is,... as long as they have food to fill their tummy and they have a good time. That is more important and just relax and it will be more relaxing for everyone. ENJOY Jake's program too.
