Thankful & a Giveaway

"Bountiful Blessings"
Country Rustic Primitives
Sometimes I wonder why God has so richly blessed me...
I know that I don't deserve it.
Sure we have our trials and challenges.
But I have my dear husband, two wonderful sons, a fulfilling career and a home in a community where I have wanted to live since 8th grade.
What more could I possibly ask for?
So many bountiful blessings!
And this year we are thankful for the newest member of our family.
Orion has only lived with us for 3 months and we can't imagine life without him.

He is a blessing to each of us.
I am also so thankful for all of the friends that I have made through my blog, Etsy, and TDIPT Mercantile. I have enjoyed this journey and all the kindred souls more than I could have imagined.
To show my thankfulness, I'd like to offer a giveaway:

One of my white velvet pumpkins, two of my handmade leaves (a maple and an oak) and...
A complete Maggie Bonanomi kit!
I believe that this was a class from the Buggy Barn a few years back. I know that I will never get around to it and thought that someone else might appreciate it...
It is a complete kit that contains the ticking background, wools and pattern.
This is an inclusive giveaway ~ I hope that everyone that would like can enter :)
Just leave a comment on this post. If you are not comfortable leaving a comment, you can also send me an email at with "Winding Vine Giveaway" in the subject line.
I will be drawing a name next weekend and will get it in the mail right away so that hopefully you will have it in time to enjoy for Thanksgiving.
"And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
Let the message about Christ, in all its richness, fill your lives. Teach and counsel each other with all the wisdom he gives. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts."
~Colossians 3:15 - 16
Blessings, Patti

Count me in! Patti, I believe we show gratitude for our blessings by giving back, and you most certainly do that through your beautiful blog and your thoughtful messages, and especially in giving Orion a loving family and a forever home. You are a true blessing to your readers and followers!

You know Patti, I so often feel the same way about the richness of God's blessings in my life, knowing that I, a sinner (to the max) am not worthy. . . thank you for putting to words the same way I feel sometimes.
I would love to be entered in your drawing. I'm a huge fan of MB :) and would consider it an honor to have a kit of hers and some beautiful work of yours!

Patti, you have the most wonderful pictures on your blog. As I read past posts, I am wondering if there is anything you can't do---every project is so beautiful.

And congrats on the puppy---he's adorable. Love that little tongue sticking out while he's sleeping.


Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

Please include me in this giveaway.

Your blog is beautiful, and I especially appreciate how you include Scriptures with some of your posts.

Carla said...

How generous you are to offer this Maggie treat. I know your family and puppy are a real blessing to you- but, you, sweetie, are a blessing to them too. That puppy is just precious- the pic with his tongue hanging out, makes me want to scoop him up and hug him. The white pumpkin and leaves really put this gift over the top. I love your blog- and meeting you in person at Boxwood and Berries- you are every bit as sweet in person.
Hugs, Carla from Fargo
