Thanks so much for participating in my little giveaway. I had so much fun reading your guesses. Some of you thought 9 was a crazy big guess. Just you wait! Without further ado, I give you the festival of trees!
I got my first tree as a college student. I still have that one. College was a long time ago and I've been collecting ever since. Each tree has a story and is a Christmas memory. I don't put them all out every year. And I don't have a big house, just lots of Christmas spirit! Let's start outside.
the front porch - a lighted tree to welcome folks to the house
my studio - a feather tree with my vintage shiny brite ornaments
hubby's office - a birch bark tree to remind him of his Wisconsin roots
the landing - a pipe cleaner tree
the bedroom - a shiny 50's pom tree with my collection of Polonaise glass ornaments
the kitchen - 3 Swedish trees, a winterberry tree for the table and 3 trees to shade baby Jesus
the living room - 3 sparkly trees on the mantle, 3 miniature blue spruces, my red glitter tree, a silver branch tree for special ornaments, a mercury glass tree, a bottle brush tree, 2 pink and green bottlebrush trees, a sparkly tree for my miniature santa ornaments and a tree to lead you down the hall
the family room - a white feather tree for the kids' handmade ornaments, and finally the mother of them all, a nine foot live Frasier fir for all of the family ornaments.
adding it up:
front porch 1
my studio 1
hubby's office 1
living room 14
family room 2
still packed away ?
total Christmas trees 28
Only 2 people out of over 300 guessed the correct number of 28. The first person to guess correctly was Meredith, so the little quilt is yours. Please let me know which little quilt you would like. Cygnetsmall also guessed correctly so you win a fabric bundle. The other fabric bundle winners are those who guessed either 27 or 29. I chose you in the order of your comments. The other fabric bundle winners are: 3inunder3, Mommyshome, Anonymous (Chris), Kelly, and Sara. Please send me your snail mail addresses and I will get all the packages in the mail on Monday. Chris, I don't have a way to contact you so if I don't hear from you by Sunday evening I'll pick the next person on the list. Thanks for helping me have a little holiday fun! I hope you had fun too.
Oooh wait, hold the phone. There is one more giveaway happening here. For all of you who left a comment on this post to help me with my redwork quilt, I did the random number thingy and the winner is #31, Michelle of Michelle Sews. Congrats Michelle. Please send me your address and I'll mail your little Christmas surprise on Monday too. Want to see it now? Nah, it's Christmas, you'll have to wait till Santa (your jolly postman) brings it to you!
