Holiday Favorite Things Blog Hop

Welcome friends!    Several Blogging friends came together to share some of our Favorite Things, (A little Oprah Style)... This is an AMAZING giveaway with several prizes!  Be sure to scroll down all the way to the bottom to make sure you don't miss anything.  Are you ready to get started?

Here are a few of MY favorite things:

 Christmas Lights - A holiday tradition!

When I was a little girl, my parents (along with Aunt's, Uncle's, Cousins,) and my brother would all pile in our old station wagon and go out and look at all the Christmas lights.  Ours were strung up on our house the day after Thanksgiving and taken down just after the new year.  It has been a long standing tradition, and one that I continue with my own home.  As seen in the photographs above,  I hang lights around my deck.  

Favorite PENS!  Mr. Sketch, Crazy Faces, and SCENTOS!

One of my very favorite things school related are colored pens - pens of any kind.  I love the new Mr. Sketch, and SCENTOS markers.  I can't pass by the art isle without picking up another pack.  Do they have support groups for that?

 Favorite Beauty products - Bath and Body Works!

Living on a farm, it means that hands get chapped in the winter!~  My favorite go-to products are from Bath and Body Works.  I love these products because I am not allergic to them, they come in many different fragrances, and there is a store not far from here!  (For Arkansas, that isn't bad!)  My favorite fragrance is Blackberry Vanilla but I think they are discontinuing it, so my last trip I was experimenting with different scents.  Sweet Pea, Oahu (yum!), and Carribbean Escape.

  Hobby Lobby Gift Card - Love it!

I am giving away a $10.00 gift card to Hobby Lobby as part of the Favorite Things giveaway!  Hobby Lobby has a huge selection of art supplies, décor, and more!  Here in Arkansas, a brand new store opened up a few months ago!  I enjoy going there to just look around for ideas, and for some shopping too! :)   The Gift card can be used in store and online as well.

Stop by my TPT Store and receive 50% off of the featured items for the holidays.  

7 winners for 7 prize packs!

    1. Hey there Kim! I know!!! I was really bummed when they discontinued the Blackberry Vanilla. I hope you have a Merry Christmas!

  3. Christmas lights are also one of my favorite parts of the holiday season. We never hung lights on our house, but I still love driving around looking at all the other displays.

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Debbie! I can't remember a time we didn't have Christmas lights. I look for those even more than a tree. lol ;) Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  4. I know I'm putting myself out on a limb here, but can you believe I've never seen or tried Scentos markers! I mean I've seen them mentioned on various blogs, but that's it. Are the scents really strong because I have to get the low odor Expo markers are I get really bad headaches at school?
    I'm on a mission now to find them... LOL
    Thanks for sharing your favs.

    1. Haha... Scentos is fairly new. They have a lot of really neat products. They are a little spendy for some things, but are pretty cool. I don't think that they are really strong in the scent, not more than the Mr. Sketch. They sell them at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and Amazon has them too. -Danielle-

  5. I am a marker fanatic too! I love the Mr. Sketch, and Sharpies.

    1. Ooooh Sharpies....I think there should be a support group for those! lol I have several of each color. And I still want more. lol Danielle
