our christmas tree {+ a williams-sonoma GIVEAWAY!}

by amy on 15 December 2011

the giveaway is closed. congratulations to lucky commenter #128, chung-ah!

i hope that all of you are having a happy holiday season so far! i know i’m definitely getting in the spirit. yesterday, my husband + i finally picked out our christmas tree, strung the lights on, + decorated it with cool, vintage-looking ornaments. despite the fact that it was almost 70 degrees here in nashville (definitely different from decembers growing up in boston!), it still got me feelin’ all holidayish + festive. + i think the tree looks just lovely in our living room – what do you think?

so, now that our tree is up + decorated, i’m feeling all sorts of festive + giving. what does that mean for you? a giveaway! one lucky reader will win a $50 gift card to williams-sonoma. and the best news? the gift card is redeemable at williams-sonoma stores OR online, so even if you don’t have a williams-sonoma in your town, you can still enter to win!

Oh my gosh, I would so use a williams-sonoma gift card to get the Star Wars spatulas shaped like Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper. I’m a Star Wars geek. I’d probably put the rest towards Star Wars cookie molds or, if a practical mood strikes, a food processor.

I’m not 100% sure what I’d use the GC for … maybe some cutlery or some of their wonderful food items! :)

168 Emily December 19, 2011 at 2:42 pm

I’ve had my eye on a yogurt maker they sell for a few months now, I just haven’t been able to justify buying it.

169 BreAna December 19, 2011 at 4:43 pm

What an awesome giveaway!! I just can’t decide what I would use the gift card for…there are so many things I would love to buy….a pizza stone or a Le Creuset Stoneware Square Covered Casserole Dish, or maybe some fun things for my kids like crustless sandwich presses and cute baking molds.

177 Karen Kierce December 19, 2011 at 8:06 pm

I would use the gift card to buy an automatic breadmaker – yup I want the one that does it all!! Thanks, Karen

178 Heather December 19, 2011 at 9:06 pm

I really need a new cookie sheet, so that’s where my money would go! :-)

179 EA-The Spicy RD December 20, 2011 at 8:21 am

Love your tree and your pup! Ah….WS…I was just there yesterday shopping for gifts and saw many things I would enjoy myself :-) . At the top of the list would be a set of Painted Fig bowls that I bought for my best friend and her family. Christmas better get here soon, so I can give her the bowls, otherwise I might start using them myself :-)

180 EA-The Spicy RD December 20, 2011 at 8:23 am

187 heather December 20, 2011 at 12:52 pm

That’s a very shapely tree — Frasier fir? I like it! As for the question, I’d put the $50 toward either a marble rolling pin or a tablecloth. Wants or needs….

Cheers and a very Merry Christmas to you and yours!
