There have been times when I have wanted to give my two sisters away. I would take them for long walks in the woods behind our home, but they would always find their way back. Once the family was at some picnic in town. Lots of people. Lots of commotions. After a long hot day of playing we (two parents and five siblings) hopped in our station wagon. In a few minutes after we got on the road our dad asked if we wanted ice cream. Well duh! He proceeds to ask each of us what we want. We tell him. And then he says, “Dava?” “Dava?” “Where the hell is DAVA!” She is the youngest, so none of us noticed her missing. He turns around to go back to town to find her. She wasn’t there. The Fire Chief drove her to our neighbor’s house, safe and sound. We found her at their kitchen table eating ice cream. Did we get any ice cream? NO!
My two sisters and I are very close in age. We are exactly 12 months apart and for six days out of the year my second sister and I are the same age. It’s been pretty cool to have close sisters. 🙂
Well, this post is about Dava, my youngest sister. She has now entered into the 21 century and has in one week, joined Twitter, Esty, and opened a blog. I told her I would write a post about her, when she actually writes something noteworthy. She said, “The fact that I actually opened a blog is noteworthy.” So, here I am writing about my noteworthy sister.
Dava has always sent neat gifts to my kids and me. I never open the box in front of the kids, because I know there is candy in there and if any of that candy disappears somewhere around the vicinity of my mouth, no one knows about it. 🙂 Last year she sent me pig poop. This year she sent the kids Lightning Bug Candy. Yeah, they glow.
They were gone in a matter of minutes after the kids discovered them in their stocking. The sugared pecans never made it to my stocking. Hardly any made it to Sir Husband’s mouth. We won’t speak about that.
Now to the give away. You waited long enough, right? My little sister has started her own business on Etsy. She makes fabulous quilts and other such sewing items. I mentioned here before the name tags she made for me and the girls. Since Dava sent an extra, just in case, (for what I don’t know), I am giving one of these away. It is really cute and bright. It has a yellow background with a red front. Here take a look. The cute girl holding the name tag is not part of the prize.
You want this. I just know you do. To have your name put in the bucket you have to do three things.
- Go to Dava’s blog and say hello. Cypress Hollow Gifts
- Go to Dava’s Etsy shop and have a look around. Buy something if you want, she won’t mind. Cypress Hollow Gifts Etsy
- Come back here and leave a comment that you did these things and what item in the Etsy shop do you like the best.
Simple. Now go do that. Drawing will be held Tuesday evening, January 12th. 🙂 If you do not want the name tag, do the three steps anyway. 😀
