50th Post & Holiday Give-Away

Finally, I am back! I've been waiting to do a post until I figured out what I wanted to give away. This morning I finally got some things put together. There is a page from a hymnal, a bingo card, a couple math flashcards, a word flashcard, a vintage holiday postcard, another holiday card with envelope, some trim, buttons and a few other little goodies. I may find some other little things to add also.

So, please leave a comment before Dec. 6 on this post. Tell all of your friends! I want to say "thank you" to everyone who reads this blog. I would also love to make some new blog friends. I so enjoy visiting other blogs and getting inspiration from all of you! Such fun!

Hopefully I will have some holiday decorating to show you soon. Right now I just have boxes sitting around the living room. Not very festive! Maybe the Christmas parade tonight will help me get in the mood to decorate. I'm just not feeling it yet. It might have something to do with it being 60 degrees outside. It just doesn't seem like Christmas yet.

Okay, I need to go. Almost time to pick up the kiddos from school. Don't forget to comment on the post to be entered in the give-away. I can't wait to read all your comments!

Hi I just found you from Creative Blogs. I am so excited to look all around. I absolutely love vintage items. Blogdom has been great to find those that have like minds and tastes, which is particularly wonderful since all my life I felt like something was wrong with me that I like what my Mom always thinks is 'junk' or 'old'.
