Christmas Cabin & Give-Away

 Here are two Wee Little Sheep helping me announce my give-away. The little flock of 3 I am giving away will look similar to these two woolly sheep. The sheep are made using the wool fleece from my own flock of live sheep. The sheep are perfect for the Nativity scene with a 6" scale. The winner may choose to have the sheep wear bells, hearts, or no neck ornaments at all. All you have to do to get your name thrown into the bowl ( literally) for selection is leave a comment on a blog post. Your name will be entered every time you leave a comment.I will select someone to draw the name out of the bowl December 23rd, announce it December 24th and mail the little flock to the winner before the new year begins !Now, onto Christmas decorating, more specifically, our little Christmas Cabin.

 This log cabin sits atop an armoir between our living room & dining room. The cabin was built by my husband and 3 children years ago for a home-school history fair.It is furnished for my little Bear family now, and even decorated inside for Christmas. Outside the cabin it is the abode of a polar bear family and Santa Claus.





Thank-you for visiting, and please, don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win a Wee Little Flock !

Your little sheep are so sweet!...and I love that little cabin. I can't wait to get home and start in on my house!

GretchenJoanna said...

The sheep are the dearest, and if I don't win them, I hope you go on making more so I might buy one for my vet daughter.

GretchenJoanna said...

When that daughter graduated from veterinary school we took her on a trip to the England and Scotland, with me. I tried to book B&B's that were working farms, and we stayed on 2 or 3 sheep farms in both countries. She took hundreds of pictures of sheep, all so much more photogenic than the ones in California who have to spend too much time on dirt and don't look so pretty.

GretchenJoanna said...

I like that Elizabeth Elliot quote on your sidebar. It's so refreshing to read advice telling us to pare down, rather than the "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" application that does not fit the situation of our over-busy world.

I would absolutely LOVE to win the sheep! I LOVE them! I am holding a giveaway for Harney & Sons Holiday tea!

I have admired your little sheep for so long. I would love to own 3 of your collection. They are just adorable. Please enter me in your drawing.

The little log cabin that your husband and kids made is really wonderful, especially since it's the bears house. When we were kids, we would hike in the mountains, and we'd come across Park Ranger sheds and we'd ask our Dad "Who lives in this little log house?" , and my dad would always answer... " Why, the Three Bears, of course." :-) Good memories.
I would love to win some of your wooly lambs, but I almost feel guilty adding my name to the drawing, because I already own some of your sheep. Ok, guilty feeling has passed, add my name anyway. I'd love to grow my flock.

Love your sheep. Please enter me!!

Debbie said...

I'd like mine with bells on please! :D
I love the rusticity of that homemade cabin. It makes wonderful winter decor. I could easily collect snow globes!I already have a nice flock of sheep, but I think they would easily welcome three more!
Have a Blessed Christmas celebration and we hope ALL are well!
Debbie
PS Keetha, you're cheating! :D

Since we both have Jacob sheep, I think that would be wonderful!
