A Giveaway / Un prix à gagner

Today is Sew Mama Sew's giveaway and I am offering one of my handstitched Christmas ornaments. I have been making a few of them for my shop, and also for our own tree here at home. You can see the different designs in my shop, if you feel curious. I know that most of you are on a sprint of visiting all the great giveaways, so I will make it easy to enter mine: 1. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post, telling me what is your favorite ornament in your tree. It can be something you inherited from your grandmother, something you or your child made, or some happy vintage find. I am just curious to know what other people put on their trees. 2. This giveaway is open to everyone, I will happily ship to any country. 3. The giveaway is open until December 7, and the winner will be announced next week-end. Please make sure that I have a way to contact you, otherwise you will be disqualified. 4. The winner will be chosen at random. Best of luck to everyone! And don't forget to check all the other giveaways here. Sylvie P.S. Sorry for the messy post, Blogger is acting up this morning and will not let me make it any better than this :( Bonjour! Aujourd'hui, j'offre un petit prix à gagner dans le cadre du Giveaway Day de Sew Mama Sew. C'est une décoration pour l'arbre de Noël, que j'ai brodée à la main. J'en ai fait quelques-uns cette année pour ma boutique, et aussi pour notre arbre à la maison. Voici les règlements très simples pour participer au concours: 1. Pour une participation, il suffit de me laisser un commentaire en me disant quelle est votre décoration favorite dans votre sapin de Noël. Ça peut être une décoration que vous avez hérité de votre grand-mère, un bricolage que vous ou votre enfant a fabriqué, ou une trouvaille vintage dont vous êtes fière. Je suis juste curieuse de savoir ce que les autres aiment accrocher dans leur arbre de Noël. 2. Le concours est ouvert à tous et à toutes, je serai heureuse de faire un gagnant ou une gagnante dans n'importe quel pays. 3. Le concours est ouvert jusqu'au 7 décembre, et le gagnant ou la gagnante sera annoncé pendant le week-end. Assurez-vous que j'ai un moyen de vous rejoindre, sinon vous serez disqualifié. 4. Le gagnant sera déterminé par un tirage. Meilleure chance à tous et à toutes! Sylvie P.S. Désolée pour la mauvaise mise en page, Blogger ne coopère pas ce matin, et c'est tout ce qu'il m'a permis de faire :(

  1. My favorite ornaments are those that are hand made by my children. The second favorite ones are the ones I use to put on the tree as a kid that my mother gave to me when I started to have kids. They bring back great memories.

  6. My favorite ornament in my tree is one that my son made. He dipped his hand in white paint, then held a plain ornament in his hand. He decorated all the white impression his fingers made, to look like snowmen. It's adorable! :)

  10. I hope I can enter not knowing what my favorite ornament is. I'm sure I have one, and I'm sure my son made it, but my tree isn't out yet and honestly I have no memory of a favorite one. Maybe my favorite has yet to be created, bought, or received. I do very much love the one you are giving away. I love anything that someone has taken time to create.

  16. Oh, how lovely. I've just recently realized that you don't have to make just x's! My favorite is likely a beaded and sequined dove an elderly friend made me - I love it so much it doesn't get put away with the other ornaments, but stays on my desk the rest of the year. But most of my ornaments have a story connected with them (except for a set of gold balls from the store), and I love them all.

She actually sent several but the one I love the most is this beautiful 5 tiered wedding cake full of beautiful colors and lots and lots of glitter! It's something I really care about and make sure I put it right smack in the middle of the tree so it's what my eyes go to the most often. I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful husband and family.
