check out yesterday's post to see who gets the last giveaway.


  1. Red it
    I used to belong to a Swedish Lutheran church and i know those red horses and how much the swedes love Christmas
    I don't know if Swedness has anything to do with their music or identitiy..but I took a listen and loved it
    thank you again for the beautiful peace of your stitchery...I am honored to have been selected..I hope you received my email

  2. Their music sounds very soothing:) It is so good to carve out an oasis somewhere in our days so we don't get lost in this crazy busy season!

  3. This is definitely the time of year for some soothing music. I don't about you but for me, the holidays can be sort of stressful. LOL. I will have to give them a listen.

    Also, thanks for reminding me. I've been meaning to buy some Christmas bulbs. It would be nice to have something blooming in the dead of winter.

  4. Thanks for turning me on to Red Horse, Karen! I have a little red horse that my friend Joan, who lives in Australia, picked up on a trip through Europe a few summers ago. And Ursula Le Guin has a wonderful story for children called A Ride on the Red Mare's Back where a little wooden horse comes to life.

    You ask if we're busy? yikes, i'm so busy, i've made Chanukah cards and still haven't had a moment to address and send them yet!

  5. I always love the new items you post so I get to hear someone or something I hadn't heard before! thank you. I live on the other coast and I love hearing about your region. I would love that cd! Nancy

  6. Well, I confess that I don't have a clue about Red Horse, but I'm intrigued by any suggestion you make.

    Also, the trees for the Wooster School look wonderful!

  7. I would love to be included in your giveaway, Karen! Sounds like wonderful music!

  8. Just catching up and was happy to hear about the music collaboration of those three singer/songwriters for I love all three of them.
    The concert must have been wonderful!
    Would love to be included in your giveaway!

  9. Oh, this sounds great. Thanks for the chance!

  10. You lead such a full and rich life, Karen. The trees couldn't have been more perfectly grown nor look more majestic in their final destination. Kudos for your constant outreach, and God bless.
    Never won a give-away before. Would be fun!
