Brown paper packages wrapped up in string, These are a few of my Favorite Things…
Do you ever wonder why that song – My Favorite Things (of Sound of Music fame) – makes it into the Christmas music line-up every year? It wafts through the air in shops and on radio stations, nestled cozily between Jingle Bells and Sleigh Ride. Is it just the mention of brown paper packages wrapped up in string? Surely it’s not the dog biting or the bee stinging that gives it rank among Christmas favorites. Perhaps it’s those snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes? Or the silver-white winters that melt into springs? If they’re melting into spring, why isn’t it an Easter song? After all, there’s that mention of girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes, which sounds much more like a spring wardrobe than a winter one!
This is something that baffles me.
I’ve been wrapping up packages – red and green paper packages – for you!
On Monday, December 26th, the 12 Days of Christmas Needlework Give-Away Series begins here on Needle ‘n Thread!
In this series of give-aways over 12 days, you will find some Favorite Things – and they all have to do with needlework.
They won’t necessarily all be wrapped up, since some packages will be shipped straight from the designer, publisher, retailer, or manufacturer.
With or without the wrapping, they are all delightful needlework goodies that you’re sure to love.
The 12 Days of Christmas series will run from December 26th through January 6th. All the give-aways will remain open until January 9th, on which day the winners will be drawn and announced. Each give-away comes with specific (easy) instructions about leaving a comment to be included, so please make sure you read each give-away post thoroughly, so you don’t miss out.
Tomorrow, I’ll pop in to wish you and yours a Happy Christmas – and then we’ll start all the fun on Monday! See you then!
