~CELEBRATING MY Soon2B 200th POST - Time For Another GIVE-A-WAY~


In honor of my upcoming 200th BLOG POST I'm having a very special Give-A-Way and I'd LOVE IT if you'd take part! I'm hoping by the time my little contest comes to an end (September 19th) I'll hit my magic number! My Blog Archives say I'm at Blog Post Counter says the number is 195...humm? Did some checking and I THINK the Counter is including some PRE-POSTS for the month and maybe three Posts I pulled. Regardless of which one is 'technically correct', number 200 is not far off~ I hope you'll celebrate with me!

Now...about the Give-A-Way!!!

It's easy to enter and you have several ways of increasing your chances of winning the charming SOFT PINK CHRISTMAS STOCKING shown above!

The Stocking was made using vintage pink silk and is graced with lots of new and old laces. Perfect for the new baby girl in your life, a daughter, granddaughter, niece or friend. It comes fully lined with a tiny pink rose cotton and is backed with a snow white Matelasse. Vintage buttons complement the front and a hand painted pink rose jingle bell can be found at the toe! Custom Labeled with "A Gathering Place"... Just lovely for the true romantic!

I think most LOVERS OF PINK would love to display this sweet Stocking in their home. I've sold similar Christmas Stockings on my Website and eBay for many years...value is approximately $60-$75.

Ahhh, Rebecca, that pink stocking is just gorgeous! I pretend that I have a fireplace mantel. I love to hang stockings from a lower ledge that divides my kitchen from my dining room at Christmas. I always wanted a fireplace mantel, but my idea will have to do! Your pink stocking would look so lovely hanging in my dining room. Wish me luck!
Thanks, Sweetie!
