Happy Give-away: Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String

LauraAll Posts

For several days, our family will be out and about, enjoying our mothers’ mouth-watering tried-and-true Thanksgiving recipes. (Incidentally, I’ve really got to copy them down one of these days, but I’m dragging my feet for fear that I might be the one wrestling the turkey’s half-frozen neck out of its cadaver at 4 o’clock in the morning next Thanksgiving! I purport that it’s better to come an hour early and arrange the cheese and crackers platter.)

While I’m out of the office, I’d like to offer a

Darling December Give-away!

First, the inspiration: As stores everywhere push “play” on their Christmas Musak soundtracks, you’ll begin to hear shoppers mumbling/ singing, “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens; bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens…” Name that tune? The Sound of Music’s “My Favorite Things”. (Let’s just hope I  don’t get one of the jazzy versions stuck in my head and privately try to belt out those sax riffs. I don’t know about you, but I find those flourishes hard to nail down! I’ve never impressed myself yet.)

And now, the give-away:

I’m offering to send one of my esteemed readers a brown paper package tied up with string that contains one of my favorite things: Alyssa’s Berry Sauce from our beloved and local Tait Farm.

Treat yourself to the chance of receiving a cozy little gift in the middle of December: it *might* just arrive on an afternoon when a friendly parcel is precisely what the doctor ordered.

1. Write a comment below, letting me know one of your “favorite things”.

2. To increase your chances 100%, let me know that you linked to this post from your own blog.

My favorite people will be drawing the winner at breakfast

on December 1st.
