Something to share with you and a giveaway

I received an email from my good friend Trina today and she was sharing what she had made for her daughter for Halloween.  Aren't these adorable!!!!  I love them and how creative!!
I also talked with my oldest brother in Pennsylvania tonite and it seems they are getting ready for the first snow of the season.  Well I got to thinking about this and thought.....what a good reason for a giveaway.  So we are going to have a little "snow" giveaway.  If you'll take notice to my new header, there is a skein of light blue Gloriana silk in it.  Well if you post a comment to this entry only, I will enter your name into the drawing to win that skein of silk.  If you receive snow before next friday, enter your name again for a second chance.  This giveaway is open to followers of my blog only and as always, I will add a surprise to the giveaway but only the winner will know what it is.  Good Luck!!
Blessings as always,
Barbara

Well, I've never even seen that brand of bloss so I'd love to be entered. There's no way I'll see snow yet down here in the south but I hear some are about to get hammered.

Those boxes are adorable! No snow called for here, at least for the next few days, but I know Utah got some a few weeks ago. I was lucky enough to actually be out of town when it came. The floss looks like a gorgeous and wintry color

Trina said...

I loved your header. It makes me think of a snow princess. The light blues and the shimmer.
I haven't heard of any snow on the way, and that is just fine with me. Good luck to all that enter, and you can keep the snow!

I was admiring your header before I read about a chance to own that gorgeous floss! Thanks for starting this way-too-early winter season with something so beautiful!

Gloriana is a dream to stitch with...not available around here, but a dream to stitch with. Snow around here....Ohio weather is weird, it would be just our luck for it to snow already! Thanks for another wonderful giveaway, Barb!

Ooooo I've never stitched with silk before. I've heard it is really nice to stitch with. I would love to be a part of your giveaway. I live in Miami, so snow is unheard of down here. :)

I love the cool wintry look of your new header. And the blue of the floss in your giveaway really fits your theme! Please enter my name in your giveaway.

I think I can safely assume you'll see only this one entry from me - today's high temp was 88 - not much chance of snow here!

Carol said...

Such a pretty shade of wintry blue!! I'd love to be entered... Thanks for the chance, Barbara :)

Carol said...

And, yes, we got snow here on Saturday--pretty, but way too early!!

Chris said...

What a great giveaway, such a different spin. The new header pic is beautiful.
No snow here in NC. The family in CT will probably not have power for a week :(
Thanks for the chance to win.

Faye said...

I sure do love Glorianna~~~ And,since that blue looks like "Carolina blue"...I'd love to stitch up something special using it~~~ Doubt I get any snow, but still would love the chance~~ Thanks so much, Faye

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

The thread is gorgeous, I'd love to win it.
Not much chance of snow here in England just yet though! Does it count if I add snowflakes to my blog haha!

OctoberLace said...

Barbara, it's so nice to see the lovely opening picture on your blog and a special treat to see that you're giving away that lovely skein of blue Gloriana! Some stitcher will be very lucky, indeed. Theresa

mbroider said...

I would love to try my luck for the Gloriana skein!! There is no snow in my part of the world at all...

Freddysmama (Kirstin) said...

LOL, If we see snow, I think I should win the floss! It NEVER snows in Sydney, not even in deepest, darkest Winter :D

I'd love to be entered anyway. The blog's looking fab.

I thought I had entered your giveaway but it seems not. I'm already a follower.
Absolutely love the humbug finish in your header picture - more info please?

katica said...

I'm not sure if I'm too late or not, but Iwould love to enter your giveaway!

And we got snow Friday here!

I would also like to ask for some information on the little pillow (not the humbug) but the square little finish in your header's picture. Its very pretty!

Many thanks
