Give Away for Christmas- and the winner is...

I would love to give away six of my tatted snowflakes for you to use in your Christmas decorating. My tatting is not perfect but I enjoy doing it. If you love handmade items, just leave me a comment and I will draw a winner on November 21. I will notify you and you can then give me a mailing address. Tell your friends.

AAmber from Making a Home is the winner. If you have not visited her, I know you would enjoy her blog. Congratulations Amber and I hope that you will enjoy using them. My friend's granddaughter, Ryan, drew the number for me. Ryan is a first grader and she was delighted to choose who won.

Us "Girls" like to play.....

There are three of us "Girls" that went all the way through school together and then two of us went on to college together. We are not actually "girls", we are "Old Ladies". The younger of us three refers to us as "Old Ladies". Ha! Well, we started getting together to celebrate birthdays and have included our husbands. We decided the other week that we would play with beads and let the men have fun talking football, racing, guns, etc. We had lunch and then the men went into the living room and we gathered around the kitchen table and started playing. Below, I will show our creations.

Naydine did these. She is using the Snowmen watch faces with her snowmen.

These are creations by Celeste. She has done some more since this picture.

These are creations by Marie. We have purchased Christmas watch faces with snowmen, Christmas trees, and Santa's to make watches for Christmas.
