Dec {week two giveaway!!!}- coaster set

Update: comment #9 is the winner, thanks to everyone for playing!

Week two of December, wow this month is flying by! So much to do, so much to see!

I'm trying to get the house decorated, but it seems that I just don't have what it takes anymore to spend the days and days to do it. I'd rather just go places and take pictures of decorations, lol. There was a time when every room in my house was decorated, and I mean EVERY room. Can you imaging how many boxes of decorations I have? I'm gradually trying to thin them out!

But one thing I did have time to do was order some of the coasters that Bill of HouseofSixCats makes for me with my photos. I have a set of each, and for this weeks contest, I'm giving away your choice of set!

Here's all the sets, there are 6 to choose from (4 coasters per set):
1. vintage beach
2. spring blossoms
3. carnival rides
4. carousel
5. tulips and roses
6. vintage venice




You can see all the sets larger if you go to my Etsy site and click on each set individually, then click "zoom" under the picture. There is also a description of the process about how the coasters are made.

Rules for the contest are the same as last week:

  6. My favorite memory is when I was 10. We saved all year and surprised my dad with giving him the best gift ever. We flew out his mom who lived in North Carolina (we are in Cali.) and we walked out of the back room while we were opening gifts to surprise him.

  11. There are so many memories from each Christmas that I cherish, but the one that stands out the most is my daughter 2nd Christmas. The look of excitement on her face and her jumping around by the tree with a big smile on her face was the best.

  18. One of my favorite memories is waking up Christmas morning and going downstairs where it was warm. The table would be set for breakfast and there would be a small gift at each plate, and a bag of candy in the plate. There was twelve of us kids so we didn't get big gifts and candy was not something we had a lot of throughout the year. But there was lots of love!

  24. I already told my favorite so a good one is the Christmas I spent with my old roommates. It was a house filled with punks, skins, psychobilly and rockabilly kids... we gave the most entertaining gifts. After exchanging gifts we walked down to the coffee shop and had a snowball fight.

  25. I just realized that I've admired your photography many times on Etsy. I just became your newest follower.

    Christmas memory...one year after I was an adult...perhaps 32 or so...I came home to have Christmas with my family. We sat at the kitchen table in my Grandmother's small house on Christmas Eve. My Father, Mother, Grandmother, Sister and I. One of started to sing a carol and we all sang along and then another of us would start one and we'd all sing that one. We just sat at the table and sang together.

    Such a simple thing. I cherish that memory so much...sitting there with my Grandmother and Father who've I've lost both now...and singing the sweet songs of Christmas.

    No hustle or bustle...the purest form of Christmas.
