I heart Christmas so much.
I’ll get to the Giveaway Winner in a moment, but first I must show you why Christmas is the best time of the year:
I spent $40 at Joanns and took home enough supplies to decorate the entire house in Christmasy goodness. I love the minimalist look of the grape vine wreath. I just spruced it up slightly by hot-gluing on some berries. Our mantle decorations were free. The greens were taken from our local tree farm and my husband spotted those gorgeous berries on a bush outside our house. The yarn “trees” were made in about 30 minutes. See this great tutorial to try them out yourself. The rest of the decorations I purchased included candles, pinecones and some ornaments. I can’t even tell you how happy it makes me to come home from work and see this reminder of Christmas!
Now, onto the giveaway winners. WOW, you guys are awesome! I read each and every one of your comments, and boy were there some fun answers in there! Here are some fun facts about our favorite Christmas gifts (and my husband’s favorite):
- 4 were most excited by cookbooks
- 11 cherished Cabbage Patch dolls the most
- 15 loved Barbie dolls
- 22 were surprised by an engagement ring for Christmas
- More than 30 call a son’s or daughter’s birth the best Christmas gift
- Almost 60 received sewing machines (not surprising!)
Here’s the comment that my husband liked the most:
