Give-Away Day


Set of 3 ornaments, including (1) 5 inch and (2) 2.5 inch balls
You can pick this set or the one pictured in my post from yesterday, so specify in your comment.


A zipper pouch which I'll fill with a few surprises including these hair goodies.


I'm so excited to participate in this years Give-Away Day. Thank you for checking in today, and I hope that you return again. I also want to mention that I will be selling my things on etsy very soon, so if you see anything you like check back or email me.
Now here's how to win: Leave a comment about your favorite Christmas ornament. You can include description, why it's your favorite, when you received it, whatever you think I need to know etc. I'll pick a winner Saturday morning. I will ship anywhere in the continental U.S. If you have any questions feel free to email me.


Here's one of my favorite ornaments. I can remember it on the tree when I was a kid, but I'm not sure exactly where it came from. Every year I can remember fighting with my sister to put this one and another one similar to it on the tree. It reminds me of the puppets from Mr. Rodger's when he went to the land of make believe. Just looking at it sparks a story of a girl and her daily adventures, and that my friend puts a big smile on my face.

My favorite ornaments are a little wooden man and woman. They were dressed in red outfits, and the man wore a Russian-style hat on his head. They were so cute. We used to take them off the tree and play with them.

I used to have this ornament that I made when I was about 6 years old. It was an old fashioned clothes pin with googley eyes and a red nose, like Rudolph! I had that one, and my sister had this hideous foam ice cream cone that she made when she was little. They went on the tree every year for over 20 years, until the dog ate 'em. Darn dog. (my blog is damknit.com and my email is damknit at gmail dot com) Thanks for participating!

Stephanie said...

I love ornaments and have gone a little ornament nuts this year. My favorite is actually some apple ornaments that my mom gave me when I got my own apartment

tammiemarie said...

How fun! I hope I win! I love bird ornaments, I am hoping to get some more made for my tree this year.

pigbook1 said...

my favorite are these little wooden gingerbread that i made when I was little. My mom let us paint them and then use puff paints to make faces and buttons.

Deb said...

My hubby makes me a beaded ornament every year, and if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the first one he made me. My son and daughter-in-law also give me an ornament every year, and if I had to pick one, it would be the llama that they sculpted with polymer clay to look like our baby llama that was born that year.

Hannah said...

My favorite ornament is from a craft fair my mom went to when I was in first grade, i remeber the fair vividly! The ornament is the cutest dough bear sitting ontop of a very small pinecone.. I still love craft fairs! Please enter me in the drawing for your lovely give-away!

B said...

I love the set you posted yesterday. Those colours pop out.

My favorite decoration for the tree is one I bought to remind me of my daughter who died. I needed something of her around me during the holiday season so I could get through it, and I found one that really represents my love of her.

Meadow said...

I love the ornaments my husband and I made when we were newlyweds (and poor). Good times...

shaina said...

Our favorite is little Ralphie holding his bb gun from "A christmas story"!!

Debra said...

My favorite ornament is my sons first Christmas silver bell. Reminds me of a time that was so innocent for us both.
I love the red and black ornaments!!

mom2three said...

Hi! My favorite ornament is a toy soldier made out of yarn, with a felt face. I've had him FOREVER, and he MUST be the first ornament on the tree, placed over the spot where Santa puts my gifts. He's my soldier and he protects my gifts of course! I'm 37 this year, and he's still my favorite, still first on the tree, and I haven't lost a gift yet!

Mommy's Home!! said...

My favorite ornaments are the ones made by my children - handprint angels, tissue paper wreaths, etc.

I would like the ornament set pictured today - everything is so adorable!

Celeste said...

I'm making some felt stars for my two toddlers this year, and I think they'll end up being my favorite ornaments to far.

Joanna said...

My fav ornament is one that is at my Mum's house back in New Zealand. Just the smell of it instantly meant it was Christmas. I know, sounds weird, but that's how it is! Love your giveaway items. I like the purse with the floral fabric:)

Bird said...

my favorite christmas ornament is an old antique clip on glittering bird. my grandmother used it to decorate her home. i always loved it!

Amelia said...

My mom was the stereotypical "hippie". So throughout my whole childhood and now on my own grown-up tree, I have ornaments that she bought in 1969. They are white pearlized ornament balls. Standard glass balls. But on each one in pink glitter is a piece sign. There is a set of six. Totally retro! Love them!~

Katie @ makingthishome.com said...

What a fun prize you have made! My favorite ornament says "baby's first Christmas". I don't remember getting it, of course, since it was for my first Christmas. But my mom puts it on her tree every year with ones for my siblings. They remind me of all the memories of Christmases our family has shared here in the US where I am now (despite being primarily based in Germany).
Thank you.
Katie

whistlepeaknits said...

So cute! I prefer the one from yesterday! I love the felt ball garland I made a few years ago.

David & Jessica said...

I love the pouch please count me in!

kikiverde said...

It's so hard to choose just one favorite ornament! One of my favorites is from when I was little and taking ballet classes. It's a wooden ballerina that has moving arms and legs that you can make dance by pulling a string hanging from the bottom of the ornament.

Thanks for offering up such a lovely giveaway!

Heather said...

My favorite ornament is the snowbaby my hubby got me the first year we got to spend Christmas together

Anya said...

My favorite ornaments are the selvage ones I've been making this year.

Thanks for the chance to win -- I think I like the previous day's ornaments best.

no4daughter said...

My favorite ornament is a vintage glass bird with a tail made of many 3 inch pieces of a heavy fishing line type substance. It was my grandma's and that is why it is my favorite.

Although yesterday's post ornaments are great, my favorites are the ones in today's post.

whitney said...

oh man I love the red and black ornaments! My favorite ornaments are the gingerbread men we decorated when we were little kids. Sadly, they are no longer with us.

two hippos said...

I love the zipper pouch! No ornaments for me as I'm Jewish.

Simply Vintagegirl said...

I have had several favorite ornaments growing up. One of them was a little mouse wrapped inside a matchbox reading a book by candlelight. It is actually my sister's, but I always looked fondly upon it. :) Please enter me (I like both sets of ornaments - so it's up to you!)! ;)

Merry Christmas!

Linda and Greg said...

My favorite christmas ornaments are the ones my husband gives me each year, he's done this since we were dating! Thank you!
I love your ornaments, esp. the ones on yesterday's post! Thank you!!

Bethany said...

Fun giveaway. I like the ornaments from today best. My favorite Christmas ornament is one of my Grandmother's, which sits at the top of her tree and spins around - I can remember sitting watching it forever.

growareader said...

I love the glittery jumping reindeer that we had on the tree when I was a kid Every year I pranced them about the tree. Now my daudgter does the same thing! I love you hair clippies!

Tanya said...

My favorite ornaments are the ones I got the year my children were born, a 1st Christmas ornament for each. One is a silver rocking horse, one a little musical cradle and a little pear of porceline shoes.

Twylabug said...

Thanks!

Kelly said...

My favorite ornament is a blown glass ball ornament I received from dh the first year we were married.

Beca said...

cute stuff! my favorite ornament is a wooden gingerbread girl i made in Sunday School when I was little...still have it!

sugarbug said...

My favorite is a little wooden skier that was from my husbands childhood. It's so retro looking.

aSprinkling said...

My favorite is not actually an ornament. It's a tinfoil covered star that we put on top of our tree. My husband and I made it the first year we were married. It is attached to a green pencil that we twist-tie to the tree.

Tiffany said...

I love these ornaments that my parents made when they were first married. It of a roacking horse teddy bear and so on. I think I love them so much because they symbolize Christmas as whole... its not what you spend it the meaning behind type thing...Cheesy I know! Anywho I hope to win thanks!

meg said...

My favorite ornaments were these popcorn things my sisters made years before I was born. There was a church and a snowman and something else and they were dyed pink. And really now that I think about it, that popcorn was really, really old and kind of gross, but I loved them.

Lisa said...

My favorite ornament is a Raggedy Ann doll my parents let me pick out at Sears when I was 5 (I'm 36 now).

She looks a little - um - raggedy, but she's still on the tree.

Sally said...

I have a bunch of favorites....they are all old world style glass ornaments...i have a turtle, a pig, a rooster, a sea horse, and abominable snowman...I love them all.

leslierose said...

I have an ornament that I have had forever, and it still hangs on my mothers tree. It is a irovy colored old fashioned baby buggy with a tiny baby in an all ivory colored outfit and hat. It is very pretty and I can't wait for it to hang on my tree one day. I love the ornaments from yesterdays post. Very Cute!

Lindsay said...

I have an old bird ornament that I inherited from my great-aunt, it's beautifully tacky but I love it!

Rachel said...

I made a Mrs Claus out of clay when i was 6 I still think she is the best ornament (on my tree)

Victoria said...

Lovely stuff and I love the ornament posted today. My favorite ornament is a set of interlocking elves that dates back to when I was very young.

Thanks for the giveaway!

I have a little beaded angel my great-grandmother gave me.

KristenL said...

Those ornaments are beautiful! My family used to have a little bird's nest we would put in our Christmas tree every year and it would chirp. That's one of my favorites.

affectioknit said...

What lovely gifts! My favorite ornament is just an old blue glass ball from the 60's with Silent Night and a little village printed on it in white!

Charity said...

My favourite ornament is a ceramic SUV, loaded on top! We bought it on our very first camping trip, as it looks just like our truck looked, and when we put it on the tree, we remember that wonderful holiday, and all the fun camping trips since. :0)

giddygoat said...

HI from a fellow Wisconsinite!
My favorite ornament is a little mailbox my great grandma made. She's gone now, but I remember her with such fondness every time I pull that old ornament out.

Mamasoo said...

My favorite ornaments were my grandmothers glass ornaments. I haen't broken one yet! Thanks!

Pick me, Monty!

ClaraE said...

My favorite ornament isn't very pretty but it plays christmas carols and I love walking by the tree and pressing the button to hear them play.

Steph said...

Very cool stuff. Thank you for your generosity!

Anne said...

My favorite ornament is a little round pillow made out of strawberry patterned fabric that my grandma made me.

I love your giveaway! The mulit colored ornaments are my favorite! Thanks!

Joni said...

I love those red ornaments. So cute.

The Giveaway Diva said...

cute!! my favorite is the angel that goes on top of the tree!!

Stephanie said...

What a great idea for Christmas ornaments. I love both sets - they would go with my tree because it's entirely scrappy. We're not one of those families that have matching ornaments or a theme to our tree. Every single ornament we have is a hand-me-down or hand made by someone or purchased for a specific event. So everytime we decorate the tree it is like revisiting all of those moments & people that have passed through our lives. I guess my favorite is the stuffed mitten that I made of felt when I was seven. It's a bit tatty now but I love that thing. :)

Hannah said...

My fave Christmas ornament is a little angel that a very dear elderly neighbor, who is now deceased, made for me when I was a wee little girl. The angel is made out of a egg carton, decorated with glitter, and has a styrofoam head.

Thanks for doing this!

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

I have a bunch of favorite ornaments. My tree is a snowman theme - if it isn't snowmen it doesn't go. I have a few darling smores that I love and also this little sparkly snowangel. You can see my tree and these ornaments at my blog - HERE

I love the zippered pouch!

notnigella.com said...

My favourite one is a handpainted bauble with my son's name and birth year on, I love it!

KitKnitty said...

My favorite ornament was one on my grandfather's tree every year. It was a blue-tinted glass ornament and it was so simple and beautiful. It's now on my parents' tree and they save it for me to hang every year.

Erica said...

My favorite ornament isn't technically an ornament, I guess...It's a tiny stuffed squirrel that my grandma knitted a long time ago (we've had it for at least as long as I can remember), and it's so soft and cuddly...I can't even remember if there's actually a hanging string on it or not, but we always just sit him on one of the tree branches!

Bethany said...

My favorite Christmas ornament is a little wooden boat my parents got while my dad was stationed overseas during Vietnam. It just reminds me how my mom tried to keep up some since of normalcy in their lives even during such a hard time.

Baba said...

Great giveaway! Love the zipper pouch and the ornaments, well just everything! Thank you so much for the chance!

emerzim said...

My favorite ornaments are the ones I made as a kid. We still put them on the tree every year.

Linda said...

my favourite ornaments are the ones my children have made through the years,

I love the ornaments you posted yesterday :)

Stephanie said...

We make ornaments each year with the kids, and I have several that are favorites when I think of them. But, my all time favorite is a little paper ornament from Mexico that was my grandmother's when my mom was a little girl. It makes me think of her, and it's been on our tree every year for at least the last 40 years!

oona said...

My favorite ornament is a little salt dough star my daughter painted with water colors when she was 18 months old. It is hung with an old scraggly pipe cleaner, but it makes me think of her sweet little hands grasping the paint brush and giggling and makes me realize how big she is now!

Thanks for the giveaway!

Beth said...

Oh, i love it all! I like the red ornaments though! I fought with my siblings about putting up ornaments too, we had a set of beautiful wooden nutcracker ornaments,and I always wanted to put on the sugar plum fairy.

Stacy said...

My favorite christmas ornament is the angel on the top of the tree. It was always there when I was young and it is still there now!

Maggie said...

I have a handmade angel my mom made me two years ago. She has yarn hair and loads of buttons down the front. I can see her from here.

Thank you for the chance at the giveaway and have a great holiday!

Alexis said...

My favorite ornament is one that has a picture of me when I was 3. My left eye is closed and I look really sleepy!

ellie said...

I really love your fabric selections - your purses are very creative.
My favourite Christmas ornaments are little fabric fairies that we make; some from my childhood, and some that I make with my children. Very floaty, made with fabric scraps.

kellyn2girls1boy said...

My favorite Christmas ornament is one that I got as a gift from my 4th grade teacher. It is a llama made from llama wool. She brought it back as a gift from a trip she took. Although his wool is a little fuzzy, I still hang it on the tree every year.

Teri said...

Very pretty ornaments! My favorite ornaments are the ones I made from paper bags one year. I made over 100 of them and gave them as gifts to family and friends. I love my Texas flag one.

Tina said...

little felt cardinal, sewed by my mom, glued to a clothespin. always seemed so clever and doesn't fall off the tree.

Jackie said...

My favorite Christmas ornament is one from my parents first Christmas after they married. It'll be 50 years old next year!

Ali said...

The first year we were married my mom made us a set of pasta angels, but these weren't just any pasta angels. They were painted to look like us, and they even had a little miniature dog that looked like ours. She had made a little sign in the middle with our names and the year. I still have it, and after 11 years, it is still on a very prominent part of the tree.

Emily said...

My favorite ornament is a salt-dough ornament with that I made with "Snow Day #3" painted on the back - you don't get that so much now that I live in Georgia.

lao80 said...

cute pouch, my favorite is a felt alligator

Jackie said...

My favorite Christmas ornament is a little puff ball, grey mouse sleeping in a walnut shell, and he's covered in a Christmas blanket. I always put that ornament on the tree!

Emily said...

Such cute stuff! I'd be happy with either set of ornaments!

My favorite ornaments are the wooden ones my grandfather has carved for me every Christmas...have a whole tree full now :)

Leanna said...

Thanks for the fun giveaway chance. My fav ornament would have to be my baby ornament, or I just love beautiful plain glass balls next to twinkling white lights.

Nancey said...

Count me in. The pouch is adorable.

Michelle said...

My favorite ornaments are the ones that my daughters make. I couldn't possibly choose only one of the bunch!

Tiffany said...

My favorite ornament is one that is on my grandpa's tree. It's a silver ball that chirps like a bird every once in awhile. They would tell all the kids to go looking in the tree, there must have been a bird stuck in there. It's a fun holiday memory that we now do with our children, too.

Beth said...

What great ornaments you made.

My favorite ornaments are Star Trek ones. I buy new ones for my husband every year.

Thanks for the chance to win, Beth

Jessica said...

I have an ornament with my puppy Bailey on it, that's my favorite one. He's 14 now, and not a puppy anymore, but he definitley was at that time!

Threaded Basil said...

nice work!
my favorite ornaments are some old ones my mom still hangs on the tree - they are all of little animals on sleds, wearing santa outfits.

beagoodmom said...

we have tiny little christmas sweater ornaments that we bought when I was pregnant with my twins. We joked that they were just the right size for the unborn babies. They probably were.

FlowerMomma said...

my fave ornament was a handmade little mouse that was sleeping in a walnut shell. I always gt to put it on the tree when I was little!

Nate and Elizabeth said...

Definitely the painted-red clothespin with a white velvet teddy bear, who is wearing a bow tie, sitting on top. I remember making it in kindergarten for my mom... it was the first time I made an ornament and realized that all of the pretty pieces on the tree had to be made by someone, somewhere, and thus began my love of crafts. :)

Ginny said...

When I was a baby, I received a huge pink glass ornament with my name on it. It is hard to find the name Ginny, so I love it.

I really like the ornaments in your other post, very pretty!

Glenda said...

I made felt oraments the first year I was married and they are still my favorite things on the tree 30 years later!

Josh and Kelley's family said...

My favorite ornament is a glass ball my husband painted. The crafter in him coming out! I like the red and black ornaments in your post.

katie said...

metal engraved ornaments we got for each year with different designs, my husband also got one each year as a child and one year we have the same one. his mother has written down which one he got each year.

deliarose said...

Gosh! I have a number of favorites! I love the little circles of painted pottery that I got in Prague. They are white with painted flowers or grapes.

I also love the Alaskan ornaments of a Yupik dancer and dog musher.

stringbean said...

My favorite ornament is the "Our first Christmas" ornament for the first year my husband and I were married. :)

I love a little ceramic tree with a picture of me in the middle when I was about 2 years old! It doesn't hang on my tree, though - it's on my parents' tree!

Kimberly said...

I really like the set of ornaments you posted today. :) My favorite ornament ever would be a star that was handed down from my grandmother. It's only made of styrofoam, straight pins and beads. But my gran passed from cancer @ 9 years ago. Every time I hang it up I think of her and smile.

Shellbells said...

i love your ornaments especially the colours!!!

Breanna S. said...

my favorite ornament is a rudolph that my children got for me several years ago.

Liz said...

My favorite is a small porcelain ballerina that I've had since I was very young. She has a lovely silver tutu that I adored as a young girl!

luke and pamela said...

my favorite ornaments are a set of 3 little vintage elves. my mother had them when she was little, and they've always been on our tree. now she's given them to me. :)

Madre Adoptiva said...

I have an ornament that's probably close to 100 years old. It's a little cupie doll that has string wrapped all around it so it can hang on the tree. It was once a toy. Back in the day, they used toys and handmade decorations to decorate the tree, so they had to be creative. I just love that ornament.

Jenn said...

My little one shattered my favorite ornament last year--a blown glass ball with a columbine flower inside

Kristi said...

My favorite ornament are the ones my children are now beginning to make.

mary grace said...

those ornaments are gorgeous! i like the red ones in this post...

my favorite ornament (that's currently falling apart & needs to be fixed!) is a clay, painted teddy bear that I was given when I was two :) the bottle he's holding is no longer attached and the paint is chipping more every year, but he's by far my favorite of all.

Jingle said...

Love that pouch! My favorite ornament is a vintage icicle that sort of glows in the dark. It is very very old and has been passed down in my family. It isn't sparkly or blinky or even colorful, but for some reason I just LOVE it!

Alison said...

Great give-away! Thanks!

Rebecca said...

favorite ornament...mmmm we had a bunch of those dough type ones that looked like us!!

Eema-le said...

I like any sort of ornament that a kid would make. Anything with macaroni and glitter.

Annie said...

My favorite ornament is a tiny old nativity set that my grandma bought me for my first Christmas. It stayed at her house, on her tree until I bought a home of my own.

Karin said...

My favorite ornament is a small red rocking horse with a yellow yarn mane. My parents bought it when we lived in Germany, when I was born. They attached it to the ceiling of the car and I stared at it as we drove around Eurpoe for several months. Maybe that is why I love to stare at it now :)

Amylouwho said...

fun! I like the ornaments from yesterdays - with the blue in them. I think my favorite ornaments growing up were these little white animals with red gingham clothes. Cuter than I can describe. But I loved them!

thanks for entering my giveaway too - I love your zipper pouch! and the crayon case...

SewsCute said...

My favorite Christmas orniment was a snow globe of Christmas Carolers. It got broken when I got married and moved but it was the coolest orniment.

MaryAnne said...

My favorite ornament is a stain glass scene given to us by my husband's grandparents.

I love the ornaments you included in your giveaway post.

MamáChanga said...

Oh my favorite ornament? That's an easy one. It's the two made from Da'Gorgeouses handprints from their first Christmas. They were born 16 weeks early (1.4 and 1.5 lbs) but are now healthy, happy 2 1/2 year olds!

Hugs & Blessings!

Katie said...

My favorite ornaments were the ones that moved. We have one that was a globe and had a little train that would actually go around the little town inside. You would have to connect these up to the light strand. I love these.

DejahView said...

I love the ball ornaments! When I was a kid my mom had these beautiful little porcelain fairies that we hung on the tree. So cute! Count me in. Thanks for doing this; I've enjoyed discovering your site!

alanajo said...

My fave ornaments are all the handmade ones that my DHs family makes each year

Rebecca said...

I love the little pouch. My favorite ornaments are the ones my kids make.

debbiekl said...

My favorite ornament is this cheap plastic thing I remember making in 2nd grade that has my school picture in it.

knitfrogrepeat said...

My favorite Christmas ornaments were a set of ceramic mice that were painted by a family friend. My brother and I would fight over who got to put the mice on the tree!

intergalacticrose said...

Thank you for taking part in this holiday giveaway~~

billiemick said...

You are so creative. I love all your designs

and sew it begins... said...

Beautiful ornaments! It's hard for me to pick just one favorite ornament. When I travel, I always try to get an ornaments as a souvenir. That way when I'm decorating my tree every year I can remember my trips.

I just started making my own ornaments recently though, so they may take the place of my store bought ones.

Kathi said...

Cute stuff! My favorite ornaments are the messy looking ones my boys make each year! :)

Lisa said...

My favorite ornament beside the one the kids made of the years is the angel that appeared under the tree the year my husband died...
My daughter now has it on her tree after a big fight with little brother....

Holly said...

My favourite ornament is a the first letters of our names that our family made when my brother and I were kids. They're cheesy, but I remember having such a fun time doing it :)

Two Cheese Please

Stacy Gibbs said...

Oh I love all the stuff in this giveaway! Those ornaments are so neat! I love the colors in the previous post! My fav. ornament on our tree is a small angel with my daughter's name on it that I bought last Christmas when I was pregnant with her. It is always so special to me b/c it is like her "first" ornament! Thanks for the great giveaway! I hope I win! :)

blueviolet said...

My favorite ornament is a crocheted angel that I made when I was little. It has so many warm memories associated with it and to tell you the truth, I couldn't even make it now. I have no idea how I did it!
doot65{at}comcast[dot]net

ILuvBNaMom said...

Wow, you have made some fantastic Christmas gifts! I really need to get on the ball and get sewing!
Please enter me in your giveaway drawing. I think both sets of ornaments are pretty, and a pouch filled with goodies??? Who could ask for more!
I don't have a favorite ornament right now because we had to go out and buy the non-breakable fake ornaments after the pets and children kept knocking the ornaments off the tree. So I've been slowly collecting soft, handmade ornaments that won't break when they fall! Maybe I'll win yours and it will be my favorite!!!

Buckstop319 said...

My favorite ornament is one made by my Grandmother of me. She used paper doilys for the skirt and wings (it is an angel) and cut my head from a photograph and glued it on. After she passed, I made some for the rest of the family in her honor.

thank you for including me in your giveaway. It is very generous.

WhirlingVortex said...

I love your ornaments! You are so talented! I like the ones from this post better. :)

Probably my mom's crocheted snowflakes about two and a half inches in diameter, absolutely beautiful. Great giveaway, thanks.

April said...

I love ornaments! Last year, our tree unexpectedly fell down and smashed most of my favorites to bits. So I am in the process of adding new ones (which can also be fun). My favorite ornaments as a child were a set of drummers my Mom always had on the tree. They were in those awesome 70's colors. They still rock. As a parent, my favorite ornaments are the ones that I have purchased on trips with my husband or for my children. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I'm not sure if you extended your deadline or not, I sure hope you have! I like the ornaments in this post best. My favorite ornament is a wooden Santa one I had growing up. It was small, no bigger than my hand as a child. What drew me to it was the soft material used to make his long beard. I remember taking it off the tree when I was little just so I could stroke the beard :)

my favorite ornament is a white porcelain angel with a golden sash. It belonged to my husband's grandmother, whom I never had a chance to meet. It's just so beautiful and simple, and I like knowing that it graced Grandma's tree before mine.

Favorite ornament(s) are the ones made by my then little preschoolers hands. They are all grown now 20,19,16 and 13; but I still love their handy work.
