A Christmas Giveaway



Arbor House Lane
 is having it's first giveaway!



My favorite tree in the kitchen.

The other day while I was untangling a mess of Christmas lights my son said "mom why do you do the trees?" I told him that I love every moment of Christmas and all that goes into getting our home ready for the holidays. Every task from untangling lights, putting trees together, lighting Christmas trees, hanging ornaments and decorations around the house, shopping, wrapping, baking and cooking, I enjoy it ALL!
The spirit of Christmas and the feeling of giving to others.
I love it ALL!

I have lots of SPIRIT and I would like to pass some on to you.

For this giveaway I am going to give one winner
one music sheet ornament,
one button ornament,
one music sheet tree
and one 3' button garland. 

Why? 

Because it is fun to receive a gift that is just for you.  

 I am sharing some of my favorite things with you!


Now here is what you have to do.
For one chance to win, you have to leave a comment guessing how many Christmas trees I put up in my house. 
( I will give you a clue...more than 5 and less than 20.)

For a second chance to win, you have to leave a comment telling me of one of your favorite Holiday traditions.

Finally, a third chance spread the word and post about the giveaway on your blog or put my giveaway button on your blog.



This giveaway will end December 2th, on December 3th I will announce the winner along with pictures of all my Christmas trees.
Happy Holidays!

  18. My favorite holiday tradition is on Christmas eve. We all sit around the tree drinking hot chocolate and listening to Christmas music. When my son was small he could open one of his gifts that evening. We now carry on this tradition with our grandchildren.

  22. WOW! More than 5 trees? It must feel like the North Pole at your home during Christmas! OK...I have no idea so I am going to guess 12. If you really do put up 12 trees you deserve a kiss from Santa. Great give away, Marcia

  23. My Christmas tradition in our home is on Christmas morning we ALWAYS have champagne and oj (mimosas) and linguisa. I have become a vegetarian, so I can honestly say I miss eating the linguisa on Christmas morn. We have done this in my family since I was little and now my children enjoy the same tradition. Marcia

  26. One of my favorite traditions in our family is our family gift exchange. We pass out names early in the year and everyone is always so thoughtful and find a gift fitting just for that person. We have so much fun watching each other not only receive but give their special person their gift! Happy Holidays!

  36. Let's see if I can remember how to do this: I think you put up 7 trees. And my favorite tradition is starting to make handcrafted ornaments the day after Thanksgiving. Since my husband worked Thanksgiving this year, I started that day. I'll put up your giveaway on my sidebar in a minute.

  40. We have many favorite traditions at Christmas. One that our 5 year old especially enjoyed this year was picking out special items to place in a shoebox for another 5 year old through Operation Christmas Child.

    Blessings to you and your family,

  42. My favorite tradition is sprinkling some glitter on the fireplace hearth on Christmas Eve. It's my little boy's clue that Santa was here and left his "santa dust" behind. Every Christmas morning for the past 4 years, I've heard him pitter patter down the hall, "Mom! There's Santa dust! He was here! He was here!"

  52. We have many Christmas traditions with our crazy family. One that has been started just in the past couple of years I enjoy very much. Our youngest sister is single. So we sisters and our children go to her house and help her decorate her chistmas tree and then we watch a Christmas movie together. Fun times together for all.

  53. One Christmas tradition we have is that on Christmas Eve we take the kids out on the lawn and sprinkle "reindeer food" so that Santa's reindeer can find our house!

  55. Love the paper tree in the giveaway! If not too late, please count me in! My favorite holiday tradition was actually for Thanksgiving. I had a BIG extended family on the maternal side and so we would rent a gym and have fun all day--volleyball, trampoline, scooters, socializing, game boards, rollerskating--boy was it a ball with all the cousins on that day!

  56. I would say eight trees. Please count me in if not too late.

  58. uumm ..Holiday traditions... well being both my parents are from Europe.. I try to teach my kids the most I can about Poland and Hungary... Christmas Eve is big with the Poles... and each year... along with the odd fish.. I teach the kids how to make home pierogies.. from mixing up your own down.. rolling it out..shaping it.... filling them..and all.... they know pierogie mens "half moon" and at 6 and 11 they can give us all a history lesson on the many other traditions or superstitons they may have.... It is tons of fun.. if not exhausting!!!
