I Know You Are Out There....

because I see that little counter to the left of this blog increasing in numbers every day. But, I get to hear from so few of you. I know you are busy, popping in just for a minute to see what's happening and then off to other things. I do the same myself! But I am trying to be better about leaving a small thought when I do encounter something lovely. So, in order to entice you to come out from the shadows and reveal yourselves to me, I am hosting a giveaway.

Yup. A nice, big, fat Christmas giveaway.
What will I be sending off to some lucky reader, you may ask? I think I will keep you in suspense for a bit, and then let out a few teasers over the next few days.
Hurry, though. I will close the drawing on Saturday, December 8, at 2:00 PM, in order that the treats may arrive before Christmas.
Come on! Leave a comment on this post and I will toss your name into my huge yellow ware bowl, and stir up a bit of Christmas magic.
You know you want to!

HI Karin! Gently toss then please pluck me from the bowl (if it is my lucky day!) Thanks for doing something fun, this time of year gets so crazy! Hugs, Bramble

PS...Glad Dad is doing better, I loved your stories of the men he was sharing a room with at the VA. We never know what paths others walked or what unexpected kindness will open their hearts.
