Little Giveaway


Am I the only one who has finally learned to write 2011 and is now trying to grasp the fact that it's already December?

With Christmas just around the corner I'm happy to say that my shopping is done. Most of it from the comfort of our home.  When ordering I happened to get an extra one of these sweet Memory games. Each set of pictures seems to be cuter than the next. And while I'm sure I could find a child who would enjoy it I decided to give you an opportunity to win one for yourself or to give it away.

If you would like to have one of these all you have to do is leave a comment telling me what you see when you look out your kitchen window.

To be entered twice post a link to this giveaway on your blog and then come back and leave another comment telling me that you did.

I will be drawing a winner using the Random generator on Monday Dec. 5th.

Disclaimer: The only compensation I receive from doing this giveaway is the warm fuzzy feeling I get from knowing someone else will get to enjoy this game.

I see our neighbor's swing-set, our shed in the back of our yard, and a tree with absolutely no leaves. What a sweet memory game!

Farah said...

When I look out my kitchen window I see my son's swing on our back deck and my neighbor's huge overgrown garden!

What sweet cards! I remember playing that with my children and now I'd love to play it with those cards with my 2 1/2 yr old grand daughter.
When I look out my kitchen window, it's hard to look past the bird feeder that hangs close by. Beautiful Cardinals eating away. Beyond that I see the woods from atop my bluff with the river and a lake below.

Denise said...

When I look out my kitchen window, I see a sweet birds nest, and baby birds all around.

Shelley said...

OK,I have it posted on my sidebar. Thanks for your sweet offer.

Amanda said...

When I look out of my kitchen window I see the parking lot and the emergency room! Not very picturesque. But there are some trees and very often there will be squirrels playing in them and on the power lines.

Aliene said...

Out the window I see a pile of wood for the fireplace, the chicken pen, our garden of greens, onions strawberries, and cabbage. The sun
shining through and a beautiful day the Lord has given us.

Melissa Boggs said...

In the summer, I see a beautiful array of flowers and trees and fluttering creatures of all kinds. Today, it is a sight of bare branches and cars flitting to and fro in the neighborhood.

Magnolia Tea said...

Another giveaway - how nice of you. The cards are adorable!

When I look out the back kitchen window I see my garden area, the chicken coop, chickens and beyond that the neighbor's cows.
I see three sugar maple trees in a row when I look out the double windows above the sink on the side of our house. Just past the trees is a one-acre fenced pasture where our Golden Retrievers romp & play.

Nancy said...

I see our backyard which right now looks gloomy because the sky is overcast and most of the trees have lost their leaves.

Linda said...

I see our carpenter shop and tractors. It looks like it's going to snow. I hope so!

Laura Ingalls wannabe said...

What a darling game! I know a little girl who would just love seeing that in her stocking at Christmas.

Out my kitchen window is currently a lot of chaos. We had a huge wind storm last night, so everything in the yard got blown about, and my neighbors' garbage can's contents now decorate the entire street. That isn't going to be much fun to clean up.

Sarah said...

When I look out my kitchen window I see finches eating at our bird feeders and my neighbors dogs out in her yard.

Mikailah said...

When I look out the kitchen window I see the mountain behind our house, with patches of snow; the leafless trees; an old metal swing set, the fire pit; and my cat sitting in the horseshoe pit.

Thanks for doing this giveaway! :) Sounds like fun.

In Christ,
Mikailah~

Momma Chilson said...

I left a post on my blog directing to your give away!

Momma Chilson said...

I guess my first post on what I see out my kitchen window did not go through! I see a bird feeder. It is empty now, but my birds are very happy! Thanks for a chance to win the sweet little game!

Joyce Kay said...

What I see out my kitchen window....Let's see there is my childrens swing set and trampoline. Back behind those 2 items are lots of trees (the woods as we call it) A beautiful sight...lets me know that we do still live in the country.

Shaun Renee said...

I see our shed, swingset for our grandchildren, a field and woods. Wishing it was a little warmer.

Angie said...

I see where my daughters swing set use to be; sometimes I see squirrel visiting and playing and gathering walnuts that have fallen from the walnut tree; past the yard a bit is the pasture and I can see the pond, cows, baby calves, and horses. Oh to live in the country and enjoy God's creation at it's best! Love it!!!

Michelle said...

Outside my kitchen window I see..... paddocks, the roof of our haybarn... trees... the mountain... traffic driving along the road in the distance... horse jumps... chook shed... our letter box... sometimes our cows grazing... our pet lamb... sometimes the horses... our drive way... my daughter waiting for the school bus to pick her up...

Lisa said...

when I look through my kitchen window I see white covering everything in my yard...trees are bare and folding their arms with the weight of the snow! It is such a beautiful sight but I must say I am glad to be inside :)

Becky's Bouquet said...

The view from our kitchen window reveals dairy goats, chickens, and, today, a bright blue sky. I would love to win and share this lovely game with our girls. Would you mind posting where you bought it?

Tricia Regar said...

I see dozens upon dozens of trees, and the occasional deer--or five. :) This is a beautiful game! Thanks for your comment on my blog as well. :-)

Cheryl said...

When I look out my kitchen window I see the bare trees blowing in the wind.

Melanie Ski said...

I am blessed to see our cow pasture out my kitchen window, with the beef cows and some young calves.

Traci's Teaching Times said...

When I look out my kitchen window I can see a picnic table, a tire swing, the trampoline, my husband's shed, etc. all the sights of a family life. Our backyard is my children's play area.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Brenda said...

Those are very cute! Let's see...I see my empty 'tire' garden and appreciate having 4 seasons.

momma rae said...

i see our backyard, small but roomy for being right in town, surrounded by neighboring fences. i see the hole left by the six pines my neighbor had chopped down where my children loved to play. but beyond that i see the hillside and a stretch of the blue ridge parkway....one of my favorite places to be.

MamaHen said...

Oh my goodness, they are adorable! They look like they could be framed they are so cute.

When I look out my window I see a big front yard with a huge pecan tree and a little seedling pecan tree. Very pretty.

Ann said...

In our old neighborhood, with small close-together houses, I see my neighbor's home out my kitchen window. The current residents do not like to spend time doing household chores, so the place looks more and more neglected. Every clear evening, though, the sun sets behind their roof - so, as I'm at the window doing my kitchen chores, I get to see that beautiful sight.

Suanna said...

I don't have a window in my kitchen, but I can see into the backyard through my living room. I can see the raised bed gardens we are working on that I am looking forward planting in the spring.

Mooberry Farmwife said...

What a lovely giveaway. When I look outside, I see my children playing in the yard (at the moment) and chickens pecking about the barnyard.

bee*in*the*balm said...

very cute! I can see the brown winter garden being scratched up by chickens.

Twila said...

I see our backyard. My clotheline, Apple trees and sometimes our Australian Shepherd, Chloe.

The Johnson Family Adventures said...

Standing at my kitchen sink, I can see through the dining room windows. I see our backyard, our very first garden, the kids' swingset, and our asian pear tree with only one bright yellow leaf left on it! :)

poodlegirl said...

When I look out my kitchen window I see our new pool and deck, where we spent so much time this summer, all covered and ready for winter.

NeKisha said...

I recognize the images on the cards as ones from a couple of books that we have about Danny and Sarah. I wonder if these are from the GVS catalog. Anyway, on to the prompt. I have two windows, but the ones that I look out primarily shows me the waterfall from the stream that passes our house off in the distance. There is a driveway that cuts in front to the hardware store next door. What we call the hedgerow comes next and is a series of trees and shrubs the children like to play in. Finally, there is our yard and porch. Now that winter is here (almost), I frequently see one of our barn kitties resting in a ball on top of the wood pile directly under that window.

NeKisha said...

I have mentioned your giveaway on my blog :) Thank you.

Kristina said...

I see our redwood tree. It's so big now. When we planted it, it was so small we weren't sure how it would fare. I also see a pretty bush, not sure what kind, but in the spring and throughout the summer it has blooms. Also in the spring and summer there are flowers there. Now, since it's winter, I see the evergreen bushes, the grass (what's left of it), and the "twigs" where all the leaves used to be. I can also see the neighbor's house, but I prefer to look at nature :) In the winter, when there's snow, the cardinals look beautiful sitting on the snow covered evergreen bushes

Knitwit said...

The closest thing I see outside my kitchen window is the top of our back fence - with an occasional squirrel running across it. Most of all I see our neighbor's house, which is about 20 feet away. However, if I look a little to the left, I can see part of a beautiful maple, which turns the most glorious shade of red in the fall.

Carolyn said...

Unfortunately, I only see a hedge!

MaryEtta said...

Our kitchen has no windows, but opens to the sunroom which has windows all across the south and east sides. I see our garden which still has gorgeous flowering kale which I have not figured out how to put in arrangements. We also are surrounded on three sides by fields-corn or soybeans-depending on the rotation for that year. Right now, however, they are cleared and brown. Today was a beautiful sunny day and all of outside looks wonderful when the sun is shining. Oh, I also see our big apple trees with the turtle sandbox underneath that the grandkids play in, in the warmer weather. Blessings to all.

Domestic Diva said...

I see a fence that has a peach tree peaking over it, and frequently features birds and squirrels.

Simple Pleasures said...

I see one of my best friends who lives next door and our kitchen windows face each other. It makes washing dishes a lot more fun to do, when you have something to look at!

Ruby, accepted in the Beloved... said...

Out my kitchen window I see a patch of sky, a snippet of a small mountain, & the very large, beige side of my neighbor's house, along with a view of various backyards. I don't much care for the view from there, but our living room view features beautiful sunsets!

Niki said...

I see open fields, cows and the Woods and a bit of our country road. I'm blessed, I know.

Niki

Niki said...

PS Could I ask which company you ordered this cute game from?
Thanks,
Niki

Tammy said...

As I look out my kitchen window I see beautiful trees and fields, deer wandering around, wild turkey, and birds....at other times I will see fox,coyote,and the neighbors cows or minature horses when they seem to escape :)

Mandy C. said...

When I look out my kitchen window, I see the green grass of our backyard, the fence around the back of the property, and the tippy top of our neighbor's garage.

Please do let us know where you got this charming memory game- I'd love to get a few for nieces and nephews! Thanks for the give away!

Kris K said...

I look at out storage building, full of garden and lawn equipment, potting mixes and other items in hopes of transforming out backyard into something that yields more then weeds and grass this coming year.

Buckeye Gal said...

The world was white outside our kitchen window as dawn broke this morning. Frozen fog covered each tree branch, each late-blooming flower, each blade of grass, every hanging basket filled with red would-be poinsettias. Even the air was white, hiding all but the near edge of the field of corn. There was no sound - not even a hint of breeze - and the birds were still asleep.

65 Roses for Marcia said...

I look out onto my back patio, retaining wall and woods.

gayle said...

I see my daughters kitchen window and beyond her home a field with cows. Between my kitchen window and hers are a yard full of
little boy toys.

Sabine said...

I see my beautiful backyard, a fence my husband built, the top of a neighbour's house, followed by a view of an industrial area and then some low mountains. And lots of sky. (Those Memory cards are adorable!)

happy momma said...

Oh how cute! When I look out my kitchen window(the one over the sink) I can see a corner of our carport, the side where I have a clothes line(smile) I can see the mountains in the distance and my husband's uncles cows grazing in the rolling pasture. Then I can see our unfinished side yard. We keep saying we're going to get it finished, but you know how that goes, other things keep coming up.:) This is where my sons have a fire pit and spend alot of evenings pretending to be camping in the wilderness. I guess you can tell it is grown up in tall weeds(smile) God Bless

happy momma said...

Just letting you know I posted about this wonderful giveaway on my blog. I know the more people who enter my chances are slimmer, but they are just so adorable I had to pass it along. My little girl would just love them. God Bless

Greg and Donna said...

When I look out my kitchen window ~ I see 2 ferns that should have been put into the compost bin several weeks ago. And past that...leaves on the grass and some plants that need to be cut back.

The little cards are beautiful. Would be a great gift to put up for my little grandchild to be (will arrive July)

Emily said...

First of all, I must say that I LOVE my kitchen window! This is our first home to actually have one, and I love being able to send my children out to play in our backyard while looking out my kitchen window occasionally to check on them or to be sweetly reminded of childhood.

memoriesmama said...

I see our goats and chickens, our two barns and shed and our woodstove. They are all things that remind me of how God provides for our needs!

Missy said...

When I look out my kitchen window I see my barn, my husband's shop and usually my Jersey milk cow.

Rose said...

I see a gigantic rosebush, knee deep overgrown grass and or weed mixture peppered with various car parts and tools, with a rusty old boat trailer covered with vines and daisys growing amuck underneath. Occasionally a rabbit, gecko, squirrel, snake, or very large yellow and orange grasshopper ( at least I think it's a grasshopper ) visits the jungle we call a backyard.

Mrs Georgina said...

I love raeding your blog. It is the first one I read. I was wondering if you would tell me where you got the memory cards game. I really like the illustrations. Blessing to you, Debra
