birthday party blog hop and giveaway . . .

♪♫ Happy birthday ♪ to YOU! ♫♪
♫♪ Happy ♪ birthday to YOU! ♪♫
♪♫ Happy birthday Quilting ♪ Gallery!!!! ♫♪
♫♪ Happy ♪ birthday ♪ to ♪ YOU!!! ♪♫
♪♫ And many more . . . ♫♪

Happy wishes to Michelle as Quilting Gallery celebrates FIVE YEARS!  Whoohoo! And what's a birthday without a party--and PRESENTS?!  (Just ask me -- the queen of making a birthDAY last for *weeks*!)

My offering for this big ol' fête is a rather festive offering including (but NOT limited to) . . . 
A fun book of minis ... Motifs, by Jeri Kelly  -- something for every month of the year!
A handmade poinsettia pin --  you can pick the color you want . . .
And for the fun of it, a package of these FUN Christmas glasses!  
I picked up a pack a couple of weeks ago, not quite realizing what they were, but thinking Sawyer might enjoy them.  Once I figured it out, I went back and got a couple more packs, including one for this prize package!   They turn lights into spectacular delights!  Check out the plain lights on my mantel here:
Now through the lens of the "snowman" pair of glasses:
Isn't that GREAT?!  There's a snowman, Santa, Rudolph, and snowflake pair!

All you have to do to participate is leave a comment . . . that's it!  It's lovely if you want to be a follower (and let me know if you're a new one, so I can return the favor).  Oh yeah -- and be sure I have a way of contacting you!  I will ship international, so everyone can join in the fun. 

The party goes on for a while, so this giveaway will be open until *SATURDAY*, December 15!  Folks, there are over 150 bloggers participating in this hop -- links will be live after midnight tonight -- make sure you head over to Quilting Gallery to check 'em all out!!

I do follow your blog but I'm not a blogger myself.
Those glasses are just great! We play games at Christmas and it's always a bit of a joke as to who is on whose team. These glasses would be the thing for the one team to wear! We'd probably have an argument as to which team got to wear them!!! lol

Mhairi said...

As a fabric lover I can't believe I am going to say this but I would be thrilled to win just the glasses. how much fun would they be to wear as you drive around the Christmas lights displays - not while driving (of course!!)
I would love a set of these so much!!
Thanks for taking part in the blog hop, I loved discovering your blog.
