  1. What a wonderful giveaway, Monica! My palette - who knows? Although the Christmas tree is full of vintage ornaments in shades of pink and aqua with a little cream, as well.

  5. Oh dear what a beautiful giveaway! I hope to keep my Christmas decor simple and the colors a bit muted, though my 8 year old daughter has already insisted on a few traditional pieces to join in so it will be a mixture of everything. Which is ok with me:)

    Thanks so much for the chance....be back when I post it on my sidebar.

  7. What a beautiful giveaway! Please enter me! Through the years I have found that I am decorating more and more with neutrals. I like to use shades of green, mercury glass and some type of natural material like pine cones, branches and burlap.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. Hello Monica
    I've just been looking through your wonderful "house hunting" photos ~ what a gorgeous spot ... and that magnificent Church ♥ I know you will be very happy putting down roots.
    Such a beautiful, generous giveaway ~ I love it all.
    We always decorate in a "Country Christmas" theme with lots of burgandy,hunter green and gold shades. Lots of collections (nutcrackers, snowmen & dated ornaments)fill every corner. I actually wanted to simplify things this year but my children ( aged 25 & 21) insisted it ALL come out like it has every year :-)

  9. Beautiful Giveaway, Monica! The pink tartan is very pretty and unusual. Please enter me.
    I am using mostly pink in my decorating this year to celebrate the upcoming birth of my first granddaughter. She's due on Christmas Eve. A very big celebration after seven boys in the family! Wishing you a beautiful weekend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi
