Christmas Shop Hop Day 5 Give Away & Day 6


I know this is a busy time of year, have you ever thought you did something and then later you realized you didn't? Like 24 hours later? Several times today I checked my Blog Dashboard for comments to publish, and there were not any. Hmm, now this was odd No one likes my Give Away~ So I just sat down here to write up our Day 6 Shop Hop Special and Day 5 wasn't here! No wonder I didn't have any comments for the day....I forgot to publish the Give Away for Day 5 after I wrote it!! ARGGGG!

Ok, onward and upward in the Sleigh we go!

Our Day 5 Shop Hop Special is a Give Away! With the Theme of our Stocking Stuffer Shop at Make Mine Pink(you can visit here) I am going to fill a Stocking full of Products to Give Away! A Handmade Stocking that is...... So for Starters I think our Stocking needs something Pretty. Something Pretty like this Broken China Charm Pendent,
You can read all about this Charm here on our website. This Charm needs something Pink to be kept safe in so I think this Pink Crocheted Rose Ladies Hankie will do, and you can read more about it here.
I had to run into Starbucks today to pick up a few of these Cake Pop Kits for my Children's Stockings(yes they are all Adults and they still enjoy the Love I put into filling their Stockings). So I thought I would also pick one up for the Give Away Stocking too! I think these look so fun to make!












A Set of one of our Coeur d'Alene Exclusive Candylight Stands! The Winner can choose either Pink & White Awareness First, Rosey Beach Cottage or Fairytale Dreams~
Since we are heaving a Heartwood Creek Blowout Sale this Week End, I thought you might like this darling Mini Peace Angel, she's about 6"H. You can read more about her here.


I'll be adding Stocking Stuffers to our Stocking Give Away until the end of the Shop Hop

Impressed by a Fancy Flea~

Oh Yes I was! We headed over this morning to the Historic Downtown of Lakeland, Florida for the Fall market of "The Fancy Flea". A Flea Market like no other. It was the prettiest Flea Market I have ever been to. The Historic District was clean, fresh and just buzzing with happy Shoppers, friends chatting and laughing, in amongst a street lined with beautiful tented booths just filled with Beautiful Merchandise! It was a delight not to see junk, and nothing made in China! There was an eclectic variety of re~furbished Antique Furniture such as that from Debbie Mangual, owner of The Vintage Soul Store in St Cloud, Florida.


Loved these Chairs, and the Pillows on them too!(Almost came home with me)
Debbie also had Gorgeous Handmade Aprons, Totes, Pillows with soft Ruffles, and quite an Assortment of Home Decor. I definitely will be visiting her in St Cloud!! and also Lisa Bertosa, Owner of House of Envy, in St. Cloud too!
Lisa's booth was covered with a ruffled Burlap roof that she made! I'm envious! Lisa's booth was also filled with Treasures that were finding new homes at a pretty steady pace. Like the Stockings on the Fence Post below,
Next to Lisa was the lovely Cindy Childers, Owner of Glitz & Glam Emporium. Lucky Cindy didn't have to travel to far, her Store is right there in Lakeland!! I also had the pleasure of meeting Kim Ryan, Owner & Designer of Paris Rags. Look at her happy, beautiful smile,
and I caught her off guard!
I wanted one of everything in her Boutique, just Beautiful Romantic Clothing!!

I also met and chatted with Robyn Story of Robyn Story Designs here in Tampa.
Robyn had a Beautiful assortment of Christmas DIY Items, Printed Burlap for making your own Pillows, Totes, Curtains, and Quarts and Quarts of Ann Sloan Chalk Paint and Waxes. Which I did grab some for a Chair I want to redo in my Dining Room.

Michelle Duke(the Duchess) came up from Plantation, Florida. Michelle also was busy selling Period Furniture and some of her Beautiful Accessories!! I loved this long Jacket she was wearing,
the gentleman in the Burgundy shirt is Mr Coeur d'Alene. He's not much of a shopper but likes to share in some my adventures. Today he made several runs back to the car, lucky me!!

I have to give a Big Thanks to Debi Wilhoite from Cameo Kids Boutique. I have known Debi since she first joined Make Mine Pink a couple years ago. Debi mentioned The Fancy Flea event last Spring after she attended. I knew it was one event I didn't want to miss when it came around again this Fall. Plus, I finally got to meet Debi!!!

I hope you all had a great Fall Saturday too!! Tell me about it~

Little Twinkle Star's "Ghastlie" Soiree Day 10

Once upon a time, Mimmie Ghastlie with the Ghastlie Flu, had a Granddaughter born, she was the Brightest Twinkling Star in all the Land. With her big bright Eyes and her smile so Sugary Sweet, Yes she was her Mimmie Ghastlies Special little Treat!! Surely a Cure for the Ghastlie Flu would be no fete!
As little Ghastlie Twinkle Star was introduced to Fashion and Style, we soon learned a silly Pink Hat brought on a Pirate Face, Oh No! we couldn't have that! Hmmm, maybe I should have embellished it with a Ghastlie Bat!
Ghastlie Little Twinkle Star found Jewels, "Oh yes, Now these I like", and her Ghastlie little instincts knew just how to wear her New Found Treasures. But to her surprise there was no cure here for Mimmie Ghastlie to measure.
One day arrived a Invitation for our Ghastlie Little Twinkle Star, A Halloween Soiree at my Gymboree! "Oh Yes" she replied, "I will contact my Mimmie Ghastlie to make the very Best"!
The Skype did ring one Ghastlie Morn, It was Little Twinkle Star.... "Mimmie, I think I finally have a cure for your Ghastlie Flu(fabric)! I need a Ghastlie Dress with Pink and Frills, a Scarf, and a Treat Bag too!" "But please no Hats, no Pants, or Shoes!".

With several colorful Ghastlie Fabric designs, A Ghastlie Cure Creation was born. A Apron Dress with Pink Ric Rac Flowers, a big Pink Bow and Frills, A Scarf with some Orange Scalloped Vintage trim, a Petite Treat Bag with Lace.
Surely this would bring a Smile to Little Twinkle Stars face! The Creation was shipped to far away Lands, to one called China and into Little Twinkle Stars hands.
And such a Cure was found for Mimmie Ghastlie's Flu, as she saw such a Smile on Little Twinkle Stars Face! No Pirate frowns, or little Boo Hoos!
With Mom by her side, Little Twinkle Star enjoyed her first Halloween Gymboree Soiree.
This Ghastlie Creation gave her the freedom to Twirl and Tumble about!

Now Surely you must know, Little Twinkle Stars Smile is my Prize for the day.

Please Leave a Comment for a chance as Madame Samm has a Prize or two for you too!


How about some Ghastlie Fabric or a Reliable Brand Iron?

2 Ghastlie Winners will be chosen today!!












So Please leave a Comment and make it Hot! At the end of the Day, 10:00 pm tonight I will send over a Name for Madame Samm to put into her big Pot!


Please visit the Blogs of all my Gastlie Sistah's today, the last day of our Ghastlie Blog Hop!
