Offering update

Hello everyone.  I've decided to give the winner of my offering a choice of boxes.  You can choose from the house design I showed earlier...
or if you are an Adam & Eve lover, this design...
The round boxes are painted a dark brown, aged, and are 4" high and 4" across.  I will draw from the names at 11:00 pm Eastern time on Friday night.  Hopefully I can get an address Saturday morning and get it in the mail before the post closes at noon.   Don't forget - the pear will be inside! 
Another tree!  This is jingle bells and dried orange slices, with dried whole oranges lying on the branches.  I think the last tree (still waiting for its lights) will be all lights and rusty, brown, and gray jumbo jingle bells.  
 I didn't get the scanner working to post the Woodlawn piece, but wanted to give the deadline for the pear box.  Make sure you leave your request on THIS POST.  Yes, the box originally shown was mustard but I wasn't happy with it and since it's still my box, I changed the color.  Good luck!  Remember, Friday night at 11:00 pm EST. 
I also wanted to thank everyone for the wonderful comments on my mantel.  I added more stitched Santa pillows in the greenery and it looks even better. 
To answer your emails, Margaret stitched her PS on the recommended 18 count Davos over one.  I always did mine on my standard 28 count over two, but really like this look so I will be using the 18 count on future designs.  Unfortunately, I included all my 18/19 count Cork linen with the charts for my EBay sale.  All gone.  Never thought I would have a need for it!!  The Christmas cushion from Carol (Sampler Farmer) is a design from Country Rustic Primitives.  Nice stuff.   It's stitched on "mink" which may be discontinued.  That's typical.  If I didn't give it away, sell it, or burn it, it's discontinued.
That's it folks!  I'll be back the end of the week.  Stay safe!

Oh, they are both so beautiful. But if I win I would like the Adam and Eve box, please. Although I have just had a thought - if I do win you will not be able to send the clove pear (it is a real one, isn't it) to Australia because of quarantine.

Hugs, kaye

Hello Marly,

What a beautiful Santa's and trees.
The tree with the oranges and jingle bells is my favorite!

The boxes are so beautiful, I love the A&E box, because I am a fan from those designs.

I love your boxes, your tree is precious, and your blog is so inspiring! I would be honored to be included in your giveaway, and love them both. I am probably more partial to houses, though either would be wonderful if I am lucky to be drawn.

Your boxes look perfect for storing a few special needfuls, any one of them would be treasured. Trees are looking great there, you inspired me to drag out a few here too. So very much enjoying your holiday decorating posts:)
