HAPPY THANKSGIVING KIM TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY,
I HAVE SO MANY FAVORITE COLORS TO CHOOSE JUST ONE IS LIKE HAVING AN AFFAIR ON THE OTHERS BUT...OH THIS IS HARD...OKAY...OKAY...MY FAVORITE COLOR IS PINK.
ALL LAST YEAR I HATED AND CRIED THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER GRADUATED TO HEAVEN. AMY WAS THE MAGIC AND SPIRIT OF EVERY HOLIDAY AND NOW 13 MONTHS LATER I AM VERY EXCITED FOR THE HOLIDAYS BECAUSE IT IS KEEPING THE SPIRIT OF MY ONLY DAUGHTER ALIVE.
THROUGH HER DEATH I WAS BROUGHT BACK TO MY LOVE OF ART AND THE LAST 5 MONTHS HAVE BEEN MAKING AND SWAPPING ATC'S.
IT IS THE SPIRIT OF THE HOLIDAYS I LOVE...LAUGHTER, FAMILY, TRADITION, AND THE SMELLS.
I FOLLOW YOUR BLOG.

Hi Kim!!
Wow-great! I'm really excited about this.
My current favorite color is, I think,...........pale teal, and I agree with Debbie, it is sooooo hard to pick just one!
One of my favorite holiday memories was the Christmas my daughter was around 12-13 yrs. old. She loved a special artist bark fairy house that was so incredibly great. It was furnished with fairy type "stuff", like woodland fairy type stuff. You couldn't take the things out or anything but it was great anyway. I had been in touch with the artist about something and she mailed us pics of some fairy houses and my daughter (and me, too) fell in love with one of them. Well, after A LOT of subterfuge, we managed to get the fairy house purchased and shipped to us. It was hard keeping my Jen in the dark about it because she was homeschooled at the time and was home when mail was delivered. And, this was in a sizeable box. Nevertheless, we managed it and she was ecstatic on Christmas Day when she pulled up the lid of a good sized, gorgeously wrapped box and looked inside and then lifted this wonderful fairy house out. It's a memory I will always treasure.
I am a follower and I'm going to post on my blog about your tremendous giveaway and I hope I will be one of the winners!! My email is thimbleprims@xecu.net
Lots of love,
Cindy

The StarFire Witch / Bald Girl said...

Also this year I will be doing my tree in black and red.
I did last year as well. but I had different shades of red. SO I'm sticking to the darker red this year. I think it'll look very pretty..somewhat gothic..But totally me.
As well I'm going to have my first ever Real live tree.
And plant a new one of course. :)
My family has always had plastic. The thing I love most about this holiday season, is the pretty lights on snow.

Hi Kim,
Another giveaway, woo-hoo! Love everything about the holidays. Family, friends, creating seasonal,decorating,buying gifts, making gifts, a light snowfall Christmas eve (key word being light).
I'm heavy into the neutrals lately. Beige, ecru, ivory, muted victorian tones.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Of course, I'll post your giveaway on my blog.

Sam I Am...... said...

Don't sign me up as I have already been the recipient of your generous spirit and it's someone else's turn. But I do LOVE the color yellow and always have and I think I always will...it is my fav!
My favorite Holiday memory is when I delivered my youngest son on December 15 and Christmas Eve sitting in front of the fire with the tree and lights and family...I felt like the Virgin Mary! LOL! And my husband had a beard and looked like Joseph! Ha! Ha! But it was special to have a tiny baby at Christmas time. But he's not so tiny anymore....he'll be 30 this year! AHHHH!

Ginger said...

My favorite color is green but I also love pink and purple. I love the holiday because it brings family together.

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Sandi said...

A standard favorite colour for me is yellow - (almost) every shade and hue. I do have phases of favorites though. It is hard to choose just one colour. My favorite thing about holidays - family. Of course I will post too...

Linda Henderson said...

My favorite color is brown. All shades of brown. My favorite thing about the holiday season is being with family. Even though we don't live that far apart, we don't have big get-togethers all the time. It's nice to sit down to a big meal and catch up with all the happenings with the kids and grandkids.

I follow on GFC.

Hi, my favourite colour has to be sea green. I love the holidays because it gives me the chance to really dress the house up, ba humbug to minimalism, hello adornments!

Lululiz said...

Another giveaway, woohoo! Thats so generous of you. Favourite colour, well, this is going to sound so boring, but really, I adore all shades of beige, from the lightest cream to dark sand or milky coffee. Next would be muted light greens and pinks, because they combine so beautifully with the creams.

Leathra said...

Happy Thanksgiving!
Let's see, my favorite color is purple, and my favorite thing about the Holidays...the 'Christmas Spirit', as it were. The anticipation and excitement, the feel of magick in the air...I don't get it every year anymore, but when I do get a hint of it I cherish it.

My favorite color? Thats a tough one, since I paint in every color possible I've never been able to choose just one, but I'm a jeans kinda gal so I guess it would be blue!
I also adore Christmas, but this year I'm not up to doing the decorating, we'll do the tree but thats it. unless I can get my hubby to do it all! LOL,not hardly!

Hi Kim,

I am one of your newest followers and I just adore your blog! I would love to be entered for a chance to win your fabulous giveaway!

I don't know if I could narrow it down just one color as far as my favorite is concerned ... I guess I would have to say burnt orange or a kind of rust color. I am particularly fond of the colors of Fall. They all would have to be my favorite; all the beautiful golds, oranges, greens, and reds! It's my favorite time of the year, so I guess those would be my favorite colors! Sorry about the novel, I can be quite indecisive at times.

Hmmmmm ... what I love about the holidays, well that is an easier one, EVERYTHING! I adore absolutely everything about the holidays but probably more than anything I love to decorate my home for the holidays. Seeing the festive decor around my home really brings a feeling of comfort and a smile to my face!

I also posted a link to your giveaway on my blog's side bar, you can see it here at - www.primitivepost.blogspot.com

Contact: primitivepost@gmail.com

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to win, I look forward to reading more from you in the future!

Blessings,
Kate

Cindy Lou said...

I just found your blog, I am excited to start following it and look at things from the past. My favorite color is blue, even though I am going through a purple stage (oh I do love purple), then I have my pink moments. I'm also a farmgirl. What I love about the holidays is family. I love the great feeling that goes with the holidays. I am going to be putting a link to your blog.

Gaby Bee said...

I don't have a favorite color. I love anything that's rusty, old, grungy, vintage and maybe patina green ...

I adore the Christmas season, I especially love it to cook and bake for my family.

Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to win, Kim!
Love your blog and I'm one of your new followers.

I have a giveaway on my blog too... so please stop by and enter!

Have a wonderful upcoming weekend!

Jann said...

Hello! I just found your blog by clicking on a link on Birgit's blog--so glad to find you! I have become a follower, and I will be back often. My favorite color is light aqua-I love it paired with silver for the holidays. Not traditional colors, but pretty, I think. I love the holidays because they bring family together, and also bring back fond memories of past times when my grandparents and father were still living--we used to have such lovely Christmases back then. I will put your link on my blog's sidebar--have a wonderful weekend!

Hi, Kim -

Happy Holidays!

My favorite color is green, green, green! I LOVE green!

What I love about the holidays is the greenery during such a snowy time. Also the decorations, the lights, and the good food. It just brings a smile to my face to see all the pretty decorations. Such a magical time of year.

Viviane Basile said...

Oi, Kim! Tudo bem? = Hi, Kim! How are you?

Love your blog and mixed collages.

Well... my favorite color changes with my humor. Nowadays it´s white. Maybe because my heart is in peace!

For the holidays, my wish is to make my son happy. I think I need just a homemade chocolate cookie, a new toy and all my love and time for him.

Have a nice day!

Kisses and hugs from Brazillllll

My favortite color is purple..but only certain purples as all purple lovers know. My favorite thing about the holidays is that I get to see my family and the grandkids that live so far away. They are excited to get their presents but the most excitement is seen when they first arrive. Even now I am smiling at the thought of little ones running to me ready for a hug and a kiss. Holiday Cheers to you and a Merry Christmas!
