Goodbye 2013!......and TWO winners

Christmas has been dismantled and almost packed away. Well, the tree is boxed up and ready to stash in the garage for another year but I am desperately trying to organise as I go so most of the decorations are still grouped on my dining room table until I finish organising it for next year. For some reason, i have got into my head that I want to add bows to all the tree baubles!!! Yep folks, that is what I have been doing today.
I can't believe I used all these red baubles this year
and just slightly less blue ones
On top of that, since Ted moved out, (I have been slowly waiting for him to move his possessions out too) the drawers in that cupboard are empty so they have been labelled and Christmas is being partially packed in there so it is easy to get to next year when I am looking for Christmas Cards/Wrapping/Tags/Candles/table linen and the crockery just a little earlier than Christmas Day.....good to have all these bits in one place....right? The baubles, tinsel, wreaths etc can still go into their plastic containers in the garage.

I have a little housekeeping to get done with regards to my giveaway 2013. Since I didn't draw a winner in November, I am going to do it now before I do Decembers ..... and surprise, I remembered how to include it here in my blog.....duh, I had the code all along!

 November Winner

Post 2 was Windsor Castle, Bath, Stonehenge Part 3

The winner for this one was......NOELA from Quilty Bits from the Blue Room
Well what do you know.....Noela! and fortunately I have Noela's address as she was my swap partner for the Santa Sack Swap.....Congratulations Noela.....expect something else from me.

Now for December:

 Post 5 was Making Spirits Bright Part 1
so who won?

and the winner for December is: SHEZ from Enjoying Life......WooHoo Shez, lucky last.  Send me your snail mail address and I will send out the last of my giveaway prizes to you.

On another note......I need to send Sheila another package as hers went astray (I think I may have messed up the address - yes I know you sent it twice Sheila....what can I say.....brain fuzz is not fun!) and the package for Kath is still sitting on my desk....oooops! sorry about that Kath.  I have a day off tomorrow so it will be a good day to get those sent off.


  1. Oh dear! seems I mucked it up again.......trust me the generator picked out those posts and names......hopefully I can get this sorted out soon!
    Cath - Bits 'n Bobs
