Great Monday Give: Jack Kent's 12 Days of Christmas

Wow. What a new day. The boy and I are housebound. It has been 100 every day here in San Antonio for over a month. So, in celebration or at least to help me forget about this oppressive heat, how about a nice vintage paperback of a holiday favorite, Jack Kent's Twelve Days of Christmas. Just comment on this post before midnight ~ August 16 ~ Sunday to be entered to win this Christmas classic. A winner will be selected at random and announced the next morning.

That said, the winners of last week's give of Corduroy are Will and Jonathan's Mom. Congrats you guys and e-mail me at webe(at)soon(dot)com with your mailing info. That's all for now kids!

I've been out of the country all year, and so never felt I could enter one of these give-aways. Now I can. :)

Don't know if it's any comfort but it's freezing and rainy in Melbourne this week - so it's nice for me to dream of our summer Christmas time, which isn't too far away... is it?!
Love the look of this one!

Adding my voice to the "I love Jack Kent" chorus. Socks for Supper is one of our all-time favorites. I haven't seen this one, but I'm sure it's terrific.

Megan G said...

Wow I'm already excited for Christmas, too!

Oh, yeah!!! Christmas in August!! How refreshing. Hey, I have been known to watch Christmas movies in the summertime, because there is something about watching a movie with snow in it that tricks my mind into thinking that the heat isn't AS oppressive. Have fun making memories! I would love to be entered, Please. Thank you!
