WW~A Season Of Giving

This Wordless Wednesday is not so wordless. I wanted to share with you how wonderful my family is by showing you my tree, but without words, it wouldn’t make any sense. This year things are so tight, I wasn’t going to have a tree. Not even a cheapo from the local hardware store. Last weekend, my kids and my mother all got together and conspired to get me a tree. It is all over decorated now with my Great Grandmother’s glass ornaments and the ones we have collected throughout our 27 years of the holidays together. I think it’s beautiful.

I also wanted to remind you all that the Blog • Bid • Hope auction benefiting The Liz Logelin Foundation and Anissa Mayhew. Begins today at the following sites. Adventures in Babywearing, Buried with Children, Mayhem & Moxie, Scary Mommy, 7 Clown Circus, The Extraordinary Ordinary, & Mama’s Losin’ It. Each has a variety of different goodies to auction. Bids start at $10 and bidding ends Friday. If you want to bid on the item I donated from ApronFrenzy, it is listed here at Holiday Baker’s Delight. I gave what I have to give and it circled back to me in the form of this lovely tree. Check out the auctions and see what you can give, if you win an auction the rewards are great.

    That is great that everyone chipped in to get you a tree and help decorate. I was getting a real tree for a few yrs. but also have a perfectly good fake one. So I decided to use that to save some money this year too.

    That’s nice you donated an apron. Good karma!

  12. Your site is EXTREMELY slow loading, with the photo especially slow. I wonder if the resolution is too high? Quite frustrating. In any case, an adorable tree and cute to see the topper being put up.

    And on the subject of giving, Mountain Woman and Red Pine Mountain had a secret giveaway on her blog and the prize was a set of Snoopy hand towels from YOU! They arrived a few days ago and I love them. Snoopy was my son’s favorite Peanuts character – I can’t wait to show him these towels. Thank you so much!
