The Forgotten Holiday for Decorating!!!

That's what I hear at craft shows.  So I went into overdrive and make alot of different Thanksgiving sit-arounds.  And I am offering one of them to the winner of my giveaway.  There are four different items.  Just let me know on this post, which one you would like to receive.

 The hat is 6" high
 The Indians are 5" high
 He 6"high and is a mini centerpiece.    I have a turkey on the other side and decorated identical.
He's on about a 6" wreath.

Now ....rules.  I hate rules, but the world runs better with some rules.

1.  Let me know on this post which one you would like.  Must be a follower.  New followers welcome.  USA and Canadian residents only.  Be sure I can contact you if you win.

2.  For a second chance, blog about my giveaway on your blog.

3.  Third chance, add to your sidebar.

That's it.  I think those are easy rules.  Oh, the deadline will be Oct 30th.  That way, hopefully, will be out in the mail that first week of Nov. and you can still enjoy before Thanksgiving.

Now, my last post about our online Christmas craft show.  For some reason, I could not highlight ORP's letter, so  you can't click on the name and go to their site from mine.  So Sorry!!!!  So, please visit ORP's blog and you can go to all the sites listed. 

Enjoy your day.  It is sunny and beautiful here in PA!!!!  Hope it is where you live.



  1. Hi Lois,
    I love Gobble the turkey wreath. Please enter me in your giveaway. Thanks.

  2. Very true Lois and everything is darling. I'll try and put on my sidebar but not always successful for some reason.
    Have a great day!

  3. Each is as cute as cute can be Lois - I especially like the little turkey centerpiece....However, as much as I love Thanksgiving, I no longer decorate for it (too much Halloween to take down; too much Christmas to put up; could never find much Thanksgiving decor...and we're not home anyway!) So no need to enter me in your generous give away....But I will happily post it on my sidebar....Have a great week! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. Lois, I love all the items you listed, but my favorite is the hat. I would be honored to be entered into your giveaway. Have a great week
