I don't want to say something silly like "winner, winner, chicken dinner", but it's singing in my head

Thank you for everyone who took the time to comment on my stocking giveaway! chose number 13

I've emailed Isabel, hopefully her parcel will arrive before December 25th!

Someone asked in the comments "do I think there are people who don't use stockings?" Well, the short answer is - yes, because we don't! I'm not sure if it's unique to my family (because I know both my parents did it when they were children), or if it's an Australian thing (my dad is English, didn't come to Australia until his late teens), but we've always used pillow cases/slips/covers. When I was a child I had a special cover that I used, but these days we just seem to use whatever is handy. I do want to make a special just-for-Christmas bag/pillow case/stocking for each child, but it won't be this year. The one year I purchased stockings all the traditional in-the-stocking gifts didn't fit!


  1. Whee. Lucky number 13, I guess!

    Thanks for the giveaway. I've emailed you back.


  2. Hasn't this giveaway been fun! I am so glad you decided to be a part of it Cate.

    LOVED your giveaway but wanted to hold off telling you so I wouldn't get picked in the drawing!

    Have a wonderful Holiday!
