Hello December & a Giveaway!

It's December
and you know what that means...

I can deck my halls

turn on my Christmas lights

start my baking

finish my shopping

write up and mail my Christmas cards

plan my menus

and get my party shoes out


it is going to be a crazy busy time
but oh so much fun

please remind me that I said this in a couple of weeks!

Actually right now I feel pretty good
organization is my friend
because I feel like I am on my "A" game right now
I thought I would have a little giveaway!

I am pleased to present a little something
that I love and use on a daily basis

this is a proud Canadian company
started back in 1991 in Victoria, BC
the spices include:
Lemon Dilly ~ Cheese, Chive & Bacon
and 3 Onion

with this little trio you can make 
Epicure's Extraordinary Cheese Dip
and it is to-die-for!

the spices can also be used in many other recipes
as well as a veggie dip ~ each on their own.

I gave away this trio this summer but it was only 
available to my Canadian readers

I am happy to say that this time it is open to everyone
all you have to do to enter is:

be a follower and leave me a comment
it's that simple! 

Blog or Tweet about it ~ let me know
and you will get another chance to win

I will announce the winner next Friday
December 9th

Good luck and spread the word!

Dear Lori,
First of all, so sorry that I have neglected you lately....have been rather busy with my Christmas preparations !! I am pleased to say that all gifts have been purchased, apart from a couple. The trouble is, I am usually organised at this point but, I lull myself into a false sense of security and then it's panic stations by about the 23rd December !!
Gorgeous images, as always.
I shall put your giveaway on my sidebar.
Happy Christmas preparations and have loads of fun. XXXX said...

Ugh! I haven't even gotten this far ahead! I can't believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away! I could do some damage with those shoes though! How gorgeous are those?! I would probably just fall and break a cankle though!

Hi Lori - I wanted to stop by to say thank you again for the lovely bracelet. I mentioned that Boo has her eye on it - now I am getting daily requests to wear it from her. I looked again at the seeds you sent me too - and the card showing such a special place to you. So thoughtful - some of the seeds show Prince Edward Island, which as you know has featured here lately as we re-watch Anne of Green Gables! I love that you are Canadian and that you spread this Canadian love! So I am not entering your giveaway as I already won one (hurrah!) but just wanted to say thank you again. You're a kindred spirit. Lou x

I'm a follower and I LOVE that cheese dip - my mom makes it all the time and it seriously makes me drool just thinking about it!

By the way, you sound much more organized than I am! My shopping is done but the baking, wrapping, Christmas cards - not so much...

I use the epicure spices all the time. They are the best. Love your photos always. You have even put me in a little bit of a Christmas spirit, although its not the same being so far from home (sigh)
