A Birthday Giveaway!

**This Giveaway Has Ended**
Hooray for you!  My birthday is on Halloween and I am having a giveaway to celebrate! 

Image from The Weed Patch

I have been purchasing some new Christmas ornaments the past few months to be used on a little tabletop tree I bought on clearance last year at Michael's.  Since this tree will be in my kitchen and be a red and white peppermint theme, I am buying ornments that are kitchen related and/or red and white.  This giveaway is for an extra ornament that I picked up just for one of you!

It is this beautiful Coffee Diva!  Isn't she divalicious?  I think she's even a little sassy!  I am assuming she's coffee, but she could be a hot chocolate diva.  I do need my coffee in the morning to function and I think she definitely lets that be known.  She stands 5 inches tall {from her head to toe} and is about 3 1/2 to 4 inches wide.  She comes with the red ribbon already attached.

She's got a plateful of goodies, some whipped cream and you can see the "steam" coming off the top. 

How to win:

You do not have to be a follower.  Just leave me a comment below telling me what your morning drink of choice is that helps you wake up.  

Additionally, for a second entry, you can blog or tweet about this giveaway; just come back and leave me a link in a second and separate comment.   You don't have to have a blog to enter either.  Just leave me an email address to contact you at {like this spam proof way: kathyp (at) creativehomeexpressions (dot) com} if you should win.

This giveaway will end on November 1, 2010, to give everyone time to enter up to and through my birthday!  I will announce the winner sometime during the day on November 1st, using

Happy Birthday! I love the little diva. It would go perfectly on my candy/cookie themed Christmas tree in the kitchen!

Jane said...

Happy early Birthday. The little diva ornament is too cute. I'm a big coffee drinker (on my 2nd cup as I type this)....I couldn't get through my morning without it (I guess that means I'm addicted).
Have a great day.

Awwww....Happy Birthday. I wish I had enough room for a tree in my kitchen. That's such a cute idea!

Mornings......FRENCH ROAST COFFEE!!!
And naturally, I grind my own beans.

Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

So cute! I need my coffee in the morning too so I say she is the Coffee Diva! Thanks for the chance! And a Halloween Birthday...How fun!

Jo said...

What a cute giveaway! My choice is coffee - gotta have my coffee! Thank you!

The ornament is really cute - I am a "Dr. Pepper" drinker in the morning but I do like my coffee at night.

Hope you have a very Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday to you,
Happy Birthday Blogger Kathy
Happy Birthday to you!

Believe it or not, I prefer to wake up without the aid of a beverage. I'm not a big coffee drinker, and I have tea only occasionally in the afternoon. I guess if I had to pick something, it would be milk or water, which I tend to drink throughout the day.


Sherry said...

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday. I was in labor on Halloween with my first son. He held off until the next morning so his birthday is November 1st. I love a cup of coffee with cream in the morning. The first sip is heavenly. I love the ornament, so cute!

Heather Henderson said...

i need a cup or two of coffee to function :)

Love the Decor! said...

My sleepy body knows the way to the coffee maker first thing in the morning. Perfect with just a splash of cream. I have one small tree thais is all coffee ornaments so this little gem would be perfect for me.
Thanks Kathy for the chance!!

And thanks for the opportunity to win.

VictoriaS said...

Aw, you share your birthday with my little boy!
Happy Birthday to you!
I have a Keurig coffee machine which I do love. I just bought the holiday box of coffee pods at Bed Bath and Beyond which has eggnog, golden french toast, holiday blend but on a normal day I will have a cup of decaf with a bit of specialty creamer (this morning, Pumpkin Pie Spice). I love to go out for coffee so I also add a whipped cream garnish most days to my cup of coffee! Delish~

LF said...

Happy Birthday!!

This would be a perfect addition to my kitchen tree!!

My morning drink, after my glass of milk is a good cup of coffee with cream. Pretty plain and simple!

Happy Birthday Kathy! I just love this cute ornament that you are giving away!


Mic said...

Happy Birthday! Love the ornie! I love brewed hazelnut coffee first thing when I get to work. It has to be decaf, unfortunately because I get really bad heart flutters if I don't. But I love coffee morning, noon and night. Thanks for the chance!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Kathy, Happy upcoming birthday! The little ornament is adorable. My morning beverage of choice is a Slimfast Cappuccino shake! Soooo good.
xoxo, Sherry

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Kathy, that is cute. My sister's b.d is on Halloween, too. Sweet of you to give us something for your birthday! I have to have my coffee in the morning. I have switched brands looking for one I love and right now it is Dunkin Doughnuts that I buy in the store. Yum!

Terri Gordon said...

Hello, Oh how wonderful that Halloween shares your Birthday, I hope you have a wonderful one. What a sweet giveaway, so cute. I morning beverage is Starbucks coffee, fresh brewed from beans. Have to have it. Have a Happy Birthday and many, many, more. Terri

Scrap for Joy said...

Happy Birthday early Kathy! Isn't it great that people "dress up" for your birthday every year and some even give out candy!
Love this ornament..especially the colors! I'm a coffee girl, too. No flavoring though..just good old Starbucks Verona for me!

CosmoGirl Carla said...

She is just the cutest! I definitely have to do coffee in the mornings. Although, not sure if I really am into "coffee" or the idea of it. You see, I really don't care for coffee flavor, so I make any flavor I can (right now I'm into blueberry) and I sweeten it up pretty heavily and add flavor creamer - usually French vanilla. So, it's hot, and it's got caffeine, but not a whole lotta "coffee" flavor going on! hehe

Keeping my fingers crossed I'm the lucky winner! I'm gonna go put a blurb on my blog about your super-cute giveaway.

CosmoGirl Carla said...

I'm back, Kathy! Entered your giveaway to my sidebar. ;o)

Paula ~ castleandcottagesigns said...

How cute Kathy! I'm coffee girl all the, coffee, and more coffee!

Seansmom said...

TEA! TEA! TEA! An Irish blend if you please, a strong Indian Assam and Keyan mix if you please! No sugar, no milk...just TEA!!
After a that, I might even be awake enough to talk to you. :>)

Jacqueline said...

Happy Birthday and what a fun day. Hope you don't get ignored with your birthday on a holiday. I believe in celebrating mine all month as mine is two weeks after Christmas!

I was going to become a follower anyway before I saw the giveaway. I am your newest follower. Thanks for visiting my blog.

I am a grapefruit juice person in the morning. It perks me up and is a great healthy start. Most people don't like it, but I love it.

Jenny @ Simcoe Street said...

Happy happy happy birthday!!!

I like water in the morning, followed by either tea or orange juice mixed with sparkling water. Yum! I save the coffee for when I get to work...


Something Nice and Pretty said...

Happy Birthday Kathy! I just love this cute ornament that you are giving away to celebrate your birthday. I would love to enter if I may? I completely understand if I can't as I do live Down Under and all!

I will think of you when I have my next cup of tea!

Best wishes,

I am an odd ball. In the summer I drink milk. In the winter its hot chocolate. Love my hot chocolate on cold fall/winter morning. :)

Happy Birthday!
My coffee of choice in the morning is a strong columbian brew with a splash of Baileys Irish Cream. For an evening out I love an espresso martini :)

Kathy said...

My drink of choice is diet coke in the morning , in the aftrnoon and evening.:-)
I'm sipping on one right now

Anonymous said...

I live in the southwest - hot summers - so Iced tea (herbal) starts the day. In the winter - what there is of it :) - is hot tea also herbal. Something on the sweet side like orange spice with Splenda. The ornament is charming! Carol heb13.20n21(at) yahoo (dot) com.

Blondie's Journal said...

Happy Birthday, Kathy. What a fun day to have it on!
I just love the little ornament!!

The first thing I love to have in the morning is a cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee...but I don't always have it in the house so it might just be regular old coffee!! I usually drink a few cups and then hit the Diet Pepsi!! Really healthy!

Happy Birthday again!


Dee Dee said...

Oh my! She is something!! My morning drink is fresh ground, fresh brewed coffee...with a splash of half-n-half, (the real kind-from a real cow- I mean if you can't have the real stuff-why bother?) But sadly- sometimes my kids steal the half-n-half and pour it on their cereal...what is wrong with my family?!??

Happy Birthday!!

Shell said...

Happy Birthday! I'm one of those rare breed who doesn't need anything to drink to wake me up. I'm awake as soon as my feet hit the floor & daylight creeps past my curtains. But the first thing I drink when I get up is water.

Barb S said...

Happy Birthday! What a cute morning drink is Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla coffee...I enjoy a couple cups before my hectic day starts with the 90 6th graders I help with all day!

Blue Creek Home said...

How cute! I love a red and white Christmas theme.

Kim said...

Birthdays on holidays can be fun or a bit of a downer (I'm close to Christmas which meant lots of folks gave me a present "for both" - bummer) but I'm guessing Halloween is more of the fun kind :) So HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I start my day with cafe con leche (half coffee, half frothy hot milk) and a good dose of sugar. I miss flavored creamers and am looking forward to that particular treat when we come to the states in 2 weeks for our daughter's wedding :)

Every Day Blessings said...

Wow How fun! My niece is also a Halloween girl! Happy Birthday! My morning drink is Starbucks breakfast Blend,I make it every morning and would love that cute ornament to put on my tree!

Just found your site tonight as I was sitting here waiting for the trickers. Happy Birthday to you, love a halloween BD. Love my reg. ol Flogers coffee with a little creamer in the morning. But love to have it in the backyard watching all my little bird friends flock in for morning feeding. What a happy site to wake up to.

Shacora Stubbs said...
