Ok , finally! Just a peek of daylight appeared, in this rainy storm that is about to transform into snow later tonight. Just enough daylight to get a few decent shots for the giveaways!

First off , I am going to change the end time of this week's giveaway to midnight Saturday December 4 .

This necklace features a darling image of one of my vintage Santa postcards.It will be the giveaway for signing up on either this , or the previous post with the gift tags. The gift tags will be given for both giveaways.

This ornament also features an image from my postcard collection. I LOVE vintage Snowman postcards!
The inside is collaged with vintage papers, and has hand painted whimsical embellishments
. Finally it is soldered between beautiful beveled glass with a vintage button added, and antique skeleton key drop. The ornament will be for the blog follower giveaway. If you are a follower you are already signed up!

"Merry" ornament will be added to my Etsy store later tonight

In other happenings, a delightful thing arrived in the mail .

Well, I am still trying to shake off this little stomach flu bug. It just doesn't seem to go away completely. I would like to introduce a little something at least, as I promised to start off this weeks giveaways.
There will still be 2 drawings , one for just leaving a comment on this post , and another drawing for being a follower on my blog just like last week. If you are already a follower, you are automatically entered for the second drawing. If you would like to be entered for both gifts , and would also like to follow this blog , then become a follower , let me know , and I will enter you for both drawings this week!

The first gifts for this week will be....
Gift tags!
I just finished these up , and was extremely pleased with lovely print quality. These are gift tags made from prints of my original
mixed media painting ,
"Tell Santa I
was Good!".
Each drawing winner will receive a set of 6 tags, they are all backed in vintage sheet music, and each hanging from 18" of pret
ty binding ribbon .

tags also currently available in my Etsy store.

There will be much more added to both of this weeks drawings tomorrow night. I started this post this afternoon , and then ran out of
good daylight for photos. :)
