my 1st give-a-way .. is this how it's done?

i have some things i would like to offer to some lucky follerer -

it's just a little Christmas package i want to give, for you to keep, share, gift or sell .. your choice and no judgments. from junk exchange to you.

a pretty grey velvet beaded stocking with silver beadwork ..

a sweet cup and saucer in the Spode Christmas tree pattern .. the blur on the cup is where i tried to doctor the photo so you couldn't see the old price tag i forgot to remove before taking the photo - the price tag is gone and will not be included with your gift .. (update: I have a correction, the SPODE Cup & Saucer are in the Christmas Memories pattern - I didn't look at the bottom, I just assumed I KNEW - don't ya just love those little reminders that you don't know everything, even when you think you do ..?)

a flameless candle that fits nicely in the Spode cup ..

a vintage inspired tinsel garland wreath ornament ..

vintage inspired Christmas ornaments including a snowman, a santa and a red glitter tree ball and a green glitter tree ball..

a porcelain angel pin by Lenox ...

a vintage inspired ornament of Santa reaching into his bag of gifts ..

a traditional mix Holiday CD ..

and a Christmas card from our line of easel back cards here at Junk Exchange, made by us...

and $25 cash tucked into the velvet stocking ...

all you have to do to enter is chose to 'foller me' .. all 'follerers' ers? are eligible ... the lucky recipient will be drawn by Sister on Tuesday and the winners name will be posted on Tuesday evening.. the 8th of December..

now, go get ready for White Wednesday ...

laters, troy & rod

(another UPDATE: All of these items will go to ONE individual .. and the plus is I have discovered how FUN give-a-ways can be .. it's like playing Santa..)
