Christmas Tree and Giveaway Winner

I've got all the inside done for christmas.Hubby is working on the outside.I'm trying to keep it simple this year so alot of things I just didn't bother to put out...Today I'm sharing pics of the Christmas Tree....All aglow....

I tried to only have handmade ornies mostly from friends.As I was putting them up I was thinking of the old Romper Room show I see Stacey and Madalynne and Jean and well you get the point.Sad part is as a child they never called my name on the show..LoL..

Some close ups a few new ones from mine and Old Lady Morgans ornie swaps....

I put the tree in a large antique bucket from Maine on top of a antique red sled..Oh look and the sweet black santa a gift from Lorna...All those presents are for me hubby keeps putting them under the tree.I haven't even wrapped mine yet....

Just had to sneak this in.For my birthday hubby baked me a strawberry cream cheese cake...Yummy.....Yep he can cook too..smile....

Ok so now what ya'll have patiently waited for...I had 99 people sign up with 130 chances total.I scrambled up the numbers and used the Random Generator the winner was Robin at The Primitive Hutch...Congratulations Robin! Email me your address...I'm going to keep it a surprise so you can see it when she post it.Thanks to everyone that joined in.I'm so blessed to have so many people take the time to listen and care about my thoughts and ponderings.You all are truely so wonderful.More Christmas pics and some Thank You's to post in the next few days.Just been busy as usual.Warm Blessings!~Amy

Love your tree! I really love the bucket it is in too!
You have one special guy there! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

Congratulations to Robin! Lucky girl.
I'm going to keep things simple around our little home this year too. I'm hoping I'll have the time to put things out this weekend. Time sure has a way of rushing past us doesn't it?
Love your tree with all the special ornies. I feel the same with all the wonderful things I've received from the swaps, as I place those treasures around my home I think of the wonderful friend I've gained. They are always with me.
Blessings and hugs to you Amy.

Your tree is wonderful Amy....I'm thinking my little dining room tree will be the only one we'll be having this year. Which might be a good thing because there won't be many gifts to put under it! Love the sled and firkin - and all your beautiful handmade ornaments. And what a keeper your hubby is - my cooks, but he will NOT bake. And gifts? Wrapped? hah! He runs down on Christmas eve day and then tries to find some unsuspecting visitor to wrap them for him. Christmas isn't his "thing." Congratulations to Robin!! She's on a little roll of her own!! Can't wait to see what she gets!! Thanks, Sweetie, for hostessing another fun giveaway. Wishing you a wonderful weekend....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Congratulations to Robin! Lucky duck!
And I love your tree, Amy, as well as the Romper Room reference. It brought to mind a funny memory for me. I used to watch that show and wait to hear my name and the day she finally said, "I see Melissa" I suddenly felt very uncomfortable about her being able to see me. Too funny. Thanks for the memory!

Margie said...

Well congrats to Robein and big thanks to you for holding a great giveaway ! But Holy Smokes...that Hubby is a real keeper ! Now you know I adore mine, but oh, if he could cook and actually bought presents early AND wrapped them himself...now that would be priceless.
