So from my cottage to yours, a wee little "cottage" ornament, complete with 'smoke' coming out of the chimney to chase away winter's chill...
... and two mini pots filled with pinecones and berry boughs, as well as the cranberry & cream toile scalloped placemat they're sitting on...
Last year I posted about three nativity sets I own, the most special being the one that belonged to my mom. The two others are vintage sets found while thrifting, both with white figurines (perfect for our little cottage!)... While out shopping with hubby last weekend, I spotted these brand new nativity figurines and it was love at first sight! I quickly grabbed a set for myself and then immediately thought what a lovely Christmas giveaway they would make for one of you, so I picked up a second set!
Now I have to be honest, this is not an expensive set at all, but I thought it was charming and I hope you do, too! (This, and all of my giveaway items were purchased at The Christmas Tree Shop.)
The figurines are actually part of a kit. You can choose to be as creative as you'd like by painting the figures (a small selection of paints is included in the kit), or you could antique or glaze them.... Let your imagination go wild! (Of course I'm going to leave mine white... Is anyone really surprised by that?............ I didn't think so!)
So just leave a comment on this post if you'd like a chance to win my Christmas giveaway! The contest ends at midnight, EST, Monday, November 23rd and I'll announce the winner on Tuesday, one week from today. (That way I might even be able to get it in the mail on Wednesday!)
Again, you'll receive the box/kit of white nativity figures, the two little pine bough pots, the cranberry & cream scalloped placemat, and the little cottage ornament.
Good luck and happy decorating to those who start early!!!!
