Saturday Freebieness Times Six

Last week was bonkers.
Seriously bonkers.

I had a two day sale in Chicago (it was very fun, and I met the nicest folks!)
We were trying to finish up our move (didn't quite finish, but getting closer!)
I wanted to fire another kiln full, but needed to make some more to fill it (didn't get that done at all)
The holidays are here (Solstice, Eid, Kwanzaa, Chanukah, Yule, Christmas) and I haven't done anything for that that I want to (like shopping!)
And I was trying to keep up with sales in the shop. (Whew, I did that).

Anyway, there was no giveaway last week, nor a Monday Miniature, so as an apology, and as a sign of the giving Season, today I will be giving away several things:

A porcelain and glass pendant in blue.
A porcelain and glass pendant in green.
A porcelain and glass pendant in blue and black.
A dark blue chalice ornament.
A dark brown potion bottle with a cork.
A little hanging pot.

Leave a comment about the holidays, and I will choose commenters at random and send them one of the items pictured today. If you have a preference of what you would like to try to win, just mention your top couple of picks, and I will do my best to accomodate that.
Also, leave a way for me to contact you, so I can get your address if you win!

Happy Holidays!


(PS, sorry about the photos! That is one thing I have not gotten set up at the new house yet!)

Busy busy busy! My goodness, Ant. I hope you're taking some time to relax amidst all of the holiday madness. Did you get a chance to get some hot chestnuts when you were in Chicago? I miss seeing the windows at Field's and eating chestnuts. Take care and happy holidays from MN.

I'm finding myself feeling very rushed this year, too. And I have none of the legitimate excuses you have. My husband just got home from a long deployment. He missed Christmas last year, so we are both looking forward to watching our boys open gifts on Christmas morning.

Yummy goodies, Ant!

I am so glad that we have scaled down our holiday celebration over the years. It's no longer the huge stress it once was; now it's a time to just kick back and relax and BREATHE. We do still bake, though, because that's a holiday tradition I'm not willing to give up -- pound cakes for all the family, and cookies!

I can't imagine moving right before the holidays... there's sooo much to do to get ready for Christmas. I moved right after Christmas one year - in fact we spent the first night in the house on New Years' Eve and then moved in the rest of the furniture/boxes on New Years' Day. The person we bought the house from wanted to spend one last Christmas in the house ... good thought - but they ended up packing and moving and didn't get to enjoy the house like they thought they'd be able to.

Uh oh! You better get to shopping! I am done with gift-getting for others and was perusing your shop looking for gifts for me (haha!) and saw the announcement about the blog. Lovely :)

We do Solstice here, which is Monday!!! I try to remember that gifts can be given any time of the year... it's too bad a yule tree is in poor taste 11/12 months though :)

Happy holidays!

I don't even want to think of the stresses of moving so close to the holidays. I have been feeling rushed trying to get all of my crocheting done. I think next year I'll start in February.
