Tis a mighty thing, to give. I love to give things. There is a certain satisfaction to making someone else smile. At my Mother’s house on Saturday we talked again about our plan for Christmas. Our plan made last Christmas is that rather than buying more “things” for one another we are all going to put pool our money and give a donation to Heifer International (several donations were made in each other’s names last year).
Even so, the girls and I have a few ideas up our sleeves about some small handmade items we might give.
So I am going to do another giveaway this month. I don’t know how long it will continue , but as long as I find something contest worthy, I am going to keep it up. Give someone a smile.
These fell in my lap at the end of last month. My Mom passed on two vintage Good Housekeeping magazines, July 1959 and March 1962. They were a hoot to go through. So I am passing one on.
I think the advertisements were my absolute favorite, all those housewives dressed to the hilt tending house, this Velveeta one made me immediately think of Nancy and her food confession!
So, leave a comment saying what your favorite gift to give is by next Saturday, October 10th, midnight E.S.T and the girls and I will pick and post a random winner on Sunday.
In addition (and in preparation for the Spirit of Christmas giving) the girls and I will make a donation of a flock of chicks in your name to Heifer International.
