'Tis the Season - to Blog Hop

Yup--that is a Colonial Snowman!!! He's at Yankee Candle Factory in Williamsburg, Virginia!

Isn't our colonial snowman adorable?  Shopping today really put me in the mood for Christmas blog hopping!

This year Carla Olson Gade and myself contributed to A Cup of Christmas Cheer by Guideposts Books.  As it so happens, both of our stories are in Volume One Tales of Faith and Family for the Holidays. 

He's wearing a tricorner hat and holding a lantern aloft!
We are participating with four other authors and will be doing a Blog Hop that will conclude on this blog at the end of November.  The Grand Prize winner will be announced right here on CQ!  BUT--before then you need to visit each of the Blog Hop stops. Each blog "hop" or stop will have a giveaway. And at the end of all the hops there will be a Grand Prize to someone who has visited and commented on every blog stop.  A $70.00 porcelain tea set from Yorktown's Victory Center will be part of the Grand Prize along with other gifts such as a $10 Amazon card, special hot cocoa packets, the two-book set of "A Cup of Christmas Cheer" and more with a total of over $125.00 in prizes!

Here's our schedule:

Friday, November 8th, Carla Olson Gade is on Carrie Fancett Pagels' blog 

Saturday, November 9th,   Ashley Clark is on Anita Mae Draper's blog.

Saturday, November 16th, Anita Mae Draper is on Johnnie Alexander Donley's blog.
