Autumn's Last Roses
Tea, Books & a Giveaway Winner!

A Happy Little Giveaway!

Good Thursday morning, my friends!

I was shopping at TJ Maxx last weekend - I simply went in for socks, but came out with a new coat for Bookworm, a new bag for me, several Christmas gifts (yay!) and this neat little set of colored "bark" pencils ...

These sets were so reasonably priced, I couldn't resist buying several for a bunch of little people on my List, and it just so happened I came home with one extra package ...

So I'd like to offer it as a giveaway!

All I ask, is you answer the following question in a comment below, and I'll enter your name in the giveaway. On Friday I'll draw a name and announce a winner!

So ... my question for you today is this:

"What's your favorite thing about Thanksgiving?"

(And there can be more than one!)

My answers:

I love that it's a day we Americans all share, whatever our faith may be. 

I love that there's nothing commerical about it - our sole purpose is to gather with loved ones and be thankful for what we have.

I love planning the menu with my mum.

I love watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

I love big football mums.

I love leftovers the next day.

I love Thanksgiving colors: russett, gray, auburn and gold.

And I LOVE it when we see a few flakes of snow at the end of the day!

Well my friends, I wish you luck in this giveaway! And as I said, I will draw a winning name tomorrow afternoon - roundabouts teatime - so please stay tuned! :)

Have yourselves a good day - it's windy and snowy here, as best I can tell - its still dark out there as I wrap up this post!

Thanks so much for stopping by ... see you here again very soon!
