More shiny Christmas stuff coming to Sage Farm

Our first blog giveaway! It’s got vintage Christmas elves!


We’re so excited about our first blog giveaway!

We got out the glue gun and made a wreath with some vintage Christmas goodies. And it could be yours! All yours! Who doesn’t love a Christmas present?

One lucky blog reader* will get this wreath to have, to hold, and to re-gift at their annual office white elephant party.

All you have to do is tell us why you want to win it in the comments below. And we’d love it if you’d stick around and become a Dish Sisters follower.

We’ll use the True Random Generator to pick a winner on Tuesday, December 17th. That way the lucky winner will get their new wreath in the mail just in time for Christmas!

We’ll announce the winner here after the drawing. Good luck!

*We’re limited to readers in the US, unfortunately. Sorry if that leaves you out!
