Paperwhites and a Winner


Hello!
I thought I would share a few pictures of my paperwhites since they are starting to bloom.


Bethany tied ribbons around all of them to prevent the blooms from falling over.



The kids have enjoyed watching them grow....
You can read more about my post I did on paperwhites here....


I really haven't been able to do much decorating for Christmas yet....
I am hoping I can get some holiday decorating done this weekend.
I talked my mom into staying until Saturday so she could help me with the sewing.

On another note, I wanted to announce the giveaway winner....
Giveaway is 


Congratulations Melinda!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway!

I hope you are all enjoying this holiday season with your family.

Take Care,
Maria

Maria your PaperWhites look lovely! We grew them last season and we loved watching them grow, it was like fast forward they grew so fast, I ended up tying twine around them so they wouldn't topple over! Congrats to your winner!
And you are cordially invited to enter my giveaway this week, lots of fun prizes, have a lovely weekend, tami

Interesting combination, we usually have this plant for our Chinese New Year, but it looks good together with the Christmas ribbon,too. Nice :)
