Happy Friday! I am having a hard time believing it is well into November now, what happened there? I am not ready for the end of the year just yet, what is a gal to do?
I am however, looking forward to the New Year, when the massive project I've been working on will be mostly over but for the clean up, and I can get back to a more normal routine.
To cheer myself up a bit I thought I would have a tiny give away today!
I'm giving away the two Flirty Fabric Wallets I made for Issue 5 of Mollie Makes Magazine. Think of it as an early holiday present.
There's this Deco one.
And this Rosy one.
That means there will be two winners! I will ship anywhere. All you need to do to have a chance to win is to leave me comment here on this post telling me what you love most about winter. Also, let me know your wallet preference. Easy Peasy!
The giveaway will be open until Thurs. November 17th midnight, and the winner will be announced next Friday!
Have a wonderful weekend all!
Thank you all for your wonderful comments, I so enjoyed reading them! The winners have been announced HERE!
Here we go! What a great give-away! My favorite one is the one with the Roses... :-)
When I think of winter I think of the time when we lived in Sweden: dark red houses, tons of snow and 'tusen ljuse ljus', thousands of candles! And lots of Glogg of course, the alcohol kind! ;-)
what a lovely giveaway :)
I love winter walks with the family when the sun is out but the air is crisp and cold..then piling back to the car for a hot chocolate and a cookie to dunk :)
I love the rosey one but they are both very lovely
thankyou, from Jane x x x x x
My favorite thing about winter is when the kids play in the snow. I love how their cheeks get all red, they look like bundled up marshmellows, and they all line up for hot chocolate :).
What a wonderful giveaway - I love the little Rosy one.
Lovely wallets. I like the Deco one a lot!
What I love about winter is taking a long walk in the snow to then come home to a hot chocolate and some snuggle time with the family. . .
For me winter is all about cosy nights in, wrapped in a blanket watching my favourite movies and drinking home made mulled wine.
I like the Deco Wallet best. Just discovered your blog! Looking forward to reading more.
What a lovely giveaway, any one of these would put a smile on my face! - Winter brings us all indoors to the 'nest', to be warmed by the fire and fed by the loving hands the stir the pot. That's what I love about winter. xo
My favorite part of winter is the snow. If it is going to be freezing outside, then we might as well as have something fun to play in. Unfortunately we don't get much snow in my neck of the woods. I love the deco wallet. The velvet is the perfect accent. Thanks for the giveaway!
What a gorgeous giveaway!!
What do I like most about winter ~ hmmm that's a hard one as I'm not a huge fan of winter, I'm a spring/summer kind-of-girl. I suppose one good thing is guilt free knitting, I don't feel I should be doing something else!! :)
Cute Wallets! I LOVE winter because I love snuggling my boys. I love having hot chocolate every morning by the fire in the fireplace. I'm definitely going to appreciate the cooler weather because I was pregnant this summer. :) I love both wallets so if I win one it doesnt matter they are both super cute!
Sorry forgot to say I especially love the Deco wallet (all my favorite colours in there). :)
I love the first snowfall, a cozy fire & being able to wear all my knitted goodness~ As for the wallets...either! I love them both~
I love listening to my Bing Crosby Holiday record and making hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps!
I would love either one!
Clear crisp mornings with an almost blue light and the wonderful sensation of waking up and 'just knowing' that there is a blanket of snow outside whilst you stay warm and cosy under the covers
I love the winter, I love wearing snuggly jumpers and curling up on the sofa with a hot choccie and my three fluffy house rabbits.
My fav purse is the deco one x x
oh what a lovely giveaway, I would love to be in for a chance. I really enjoyed these in the Molly makes, in fact it was beacause of these that I started to follow your blog!
The bestest thing about winter is cuddling up under the snuggly warm blanket that you are crocheting! And, as you are very kind to offer some yummy prizes... if I should be so fortunate to win, then I would probably chose the 'Deco One', although, I do love them both.
OMG .. *Eyes wide* it's like it ACTUALLY IS CHRISTMAS!
What I like most about winter is anticipation of all the delightful things, old and new, that mingle in the air as soon as the chill hits.
I struggle to be positive about winter, but the things that make it bearable are fires and mitts. I rather like the rosy purse - such pretty fabric.
Have a good weekend!
That's easy - snowdrops! (and hellebores and aconites and.....).
Both wallets are lovely but I'm a flowery girl.
Have a great weekend.
Just too cute! I like the Deco one. My favorite thing about winter is tht it gives me a really good excuse to cozy up inside the house and read/sew/knit, you name it. I also really the snow if we're lucky enough to get any!
you are so very clever, I would adore any of those two wallets....and I need to download that copy of Mollie Makes...thanks for the reminder.
winter means i get to use all the things i make - scarves and cowls, hottie covers and blankeys. Summer means i have to put them all away
Roses are my favourite flower so no difficulty in chosing for me!
I love the fact that winter is cold. Stating the obvious? I know- but summer here can be so hot. I love fresh made soup and bread for dinner, I love rugging up in hats and winter knits, I love cold days where plans don't go beyond coffee, couch and a family classic in the DVD player.
I could go on for hours.
Thanks for the chance to win.
What I love most about Winter is clear frosty mornings,cosy log fires,watching an old black and white film snuggled up on the sofa and having lots of time to create.Oh Lola I love your blog...and I love the Rosy One most
i looove these wallets :)
i also love the holidays~ my favorite part of winter
Open fires, roast chestnuts, the smell of mouldering leaves, misty mornings with a nip in the air.
Both wallets are beautiful.
Holy smokes Lola, what a prize! I would frame it with that issue... ;) Collectors item!
My favourite thing about winter... oh, there are so many! Big boots, chunky scarves, soup, snuggles in front of the fire, warm baths...
Both wallets are perfect, but that's hardly a surprise. xx
I love the rosy wallet!
I love winter, especially after living 25 years in Florida and now living in Alabama. I love the hats, scarves, gloves, sweaters and I love how trees look when their branches are bare and how you can see in to the forest so much easier!
What I love about winter are cosy nights in crocheting wrapped in a blanket with a cup of hot chocolate. My most creative time of year. Love the wallets. :))
Comfort food! I'd love either purse too :)
What I love about Winter is when I'm all snuggled into my lovely warm crochet blanket picking out fabrics and wools for my next project. It's nicer to stay in and craft than go out. My fab wallet is the green/blue one. Keeping everything crossed ;)
What I love about winter is being snuggled up warm in my crochet blanket and slippers choosing fabrics and wool for the next project. I'm hoping to win the blue/green one although both are beautiful so fingers crossed.
Un sorteo fabuloso, no sé cual elegir las dos son hermosas.
Del invierno lo que más me gusta es la compañia de los amigos y familia.
The one thing I love about winter is that I do not have to pull weeds in my garden ;)
Ooooo, I would love to win one of your wallets! So pretty!
What I like most about winter is staying inside with a cup of hot chocolate and a warm afghan and watching the snow fall.
I would love the rosy wallet! So pretty!
I live in Hawaii and winter here means lots of rain, cooler temperatures, and snow on our three tallest mountains (actually, they're volcanoes). I love wearing sweaters & jeans and this winter is gearing up to be our coolest one yet, so I'm thinking of purchasing some boots! I love your blog, and I adore the rosy wallet.
both wallets are perfect but I'm especially loving those bright, beautiful blooms on the rosy wallet! I think the best thing about winter for me is, typical holiday stress aside, getting together with my huge family for our rather time-less christmas party. The punch bowl comes out, the spread of food is massive and impressive as always, and it's just nice to spend an evening surrounded by family :)
happy friday lovely, sorry I haven't been round for a while. hope life is good for you.
as we are heading into hot summer I miss the cold winter's mornings, the puddles, the winter clothes, the warm snuggly cuddles in bed.
happy weekend beautiful Miss Lola Nova ♥
I love going out all wrapped up in the dark, with the cold air smelling sharp and fresh. Even better if there's the crunch of snow underfoot! Even better is coming home to roast in front of the fire with my cats and a hot chocolate!
I know my mum would love the rosy wallet!
I'd love to win the Rosy wallet, beautiful!
My favourite part of winter is the crisp mornings and feeling the chill on your face. Then coming home to mulled wine and wrapping up in blankets! Perfect!
Adore the Rosy wallet :).
Winter, for all it brings the cold and dark nights, love to think something magical is waiting to happen. The first snowfall, the hope of an adventure with James and the Snowman. Christmas, a time with family and reminiscing about childhood, reading a good book all snuggly inside and sipping hot chocy.
...winter berries, cosy mitts and the log-burner on a cold evening.
I woud be very happy with either wallet... they're both so pretty!
I love getting up early before anybody else and going for a snowshoe with the dogs, then coming home to a warm cup of coffee and making breakfast for everyone. love your blog. love both wallets.
I love Winter because I can make snugly scarves and felt confections and get all cozy under a quilt. Bliss!
The Deco wallet is calling to me!
Stitch This xx
I am really pleased I found your blog through Mollie Makes! Your wallets are just beautiful!
My favourite thing about winter are those crisp mornings where everything seems to sparkle with a layer of frost! It feels so magical and is worth having to defrost the car for!!
What I love about Winter.......what's not to love? Lovely walks on deserted Cornish beaches, woolly hats & scarves, hot soup, roaring fire, cups of tea, homemade cake, lots of knitting & crochet, watching films, fluffy socks & flannel pyjamas....bliss
PS I love the Deco Wallet
I love the winter and particularly like the chance to light the fire and wear lots of woollen clothes. I much prefer being wrapped up :) I love the wallets and am planning to have a go at the tutorial soon....well, once I have the right fabric lol. I love the Deco one :)
The Deco wallet is amazing!
I love it when it snows, and all of our friends get together with our surfboard on top of a hill. Always followed with lots of tea in the warm!
Hot buttered crumpets with melted cheese, home made pickles and a cup of tea, curtains closed, fire roaring and loved ones safe in the nest.
i""m in the mood for a nice giveaway..they look so pretty
In winter I love walking in cold sunny days; staying cozy at home sewing when it rains; And if it rains and I have to go outside... I love beautiful wellies :)
The favourite wallet is the Deco one.
I love the building excitement that begins for me really on 23rd December as its my sons birthday and which carries through to new year as my husband is home all over the festive period not working. I guess I just love the time and closeness with my family all snuggled up together.I would love to win either as both are equally beautiful xxx
I think my favourite thing about winter is snuggling up on a cold winter's evening with a warm kitty, cosy in my woollens, with a lovely cup of sugary tea. Simple but absolutely the perfect thing about winter!
I like the rosey wallet, it makes me think of the lovely fresh spring that comes after the long winter!
Ok.. I HATE WINTER... sorry.. but thats how it is... maybe because I´m living in the north of Sweden.. with lots of snow and COLD days.. ahhh.. so if I would say anything positive about winter it would be.. Christmas and candles and a warm fire burning..and some good reading..:O)) So my choice is ofcourse the ROSY one.. (which I LOVE ) no doubt.. spring and flowers thats my cup of tea!! :O))
Toast with peanut butter
Beautiful giveaway, I love them both. I am dreading the winter coming actually because the last time it snowed we had some of coming in through the roof as it was so heavy. So, what do I love about winter? The fact that Spring will soon follow.
Have a lovely weekend
I love the cosiness that winter brings, snugged up by the fire with a good book, wearing scarves and hats, the skeletal trees against a stark sky, hot chocolate and hot buttered toast, oh I could go on....
I like them both, it's too hard to choose one.
Winter? The chance to wear/use all the woolly goodness that I 've made - hand-knit socks, scarves, shawls, & the time to hook a new afghan & it gets bigger as it gets colder & more snuggly!
Lovely prize! Deco.
oh i do so love a giveaway! closing my eyes tight and wishing very hard i'm lucky this time...
i love those bright, crisp, cold winter mornings when the sun is trying it's best to warm the earth. i love it when the grass crackles underfoot because of the frost, and i love the bright eyes and rosy cheeks of people on their way to work.
I would very much like the rosy wallet :)
I would be delighted with either of them--what I love most about winter is the short day, with darkness falling early, the windows steamed up and me feeling all snug and cozy, safe inside my home.
I love the rosy wallet with its sweet lace trim.
What I love most about winter is warm sweaters, a cozy home, and the intricate outline of bare trees in contrast to the grey skies.
Thank you for your inspiration!
I love these wallets! The Rose one is my favorite, if I'd have to choose! Right after a huge snowfall, when the world is silent, the moon is bright, and the air is crisp, I love to take a moonlit walk with my pups. Can't think of anything more peaceful. Thanks for the give away!
I live in Australia, so our winters are not like yours, but what I love the most, is to hear the rain on the roof on a weekend, knowing that I can stay inside all day in my sewing room and be happy,warm and dry :0) - love either of the wallets
I love love LOVE the one with the roses!
My favorite thing about winter is the cozyness: sweaters, hot chocolate, soup, big woolly socks.....mmmm! :)
oooh, i love giveaways!
-) i love the rain. yes. i'm a rare pdx native.
-) i think i *need* the deco one. lovely!
I love winter as I seem to find more time for crafty things. The evenings are longer and often I am indoors and so can "play" with my crafting toys, drink tea and taste all the cakes and other delights I have crafted in my kitchen.
There isn't a thing I don't love about winter in Mid Michigan, even the icey roads and blizzards,,,means I can stay home and craft! LOL I think the most fun for me these days is watching my Golden Retriever get a sparkle in her eye with the first snow fall and the hopping like a puppy playing in it.
I love both wallets but if I had to pick I'd go with the Deco wallet!
Thanks for an awesome give away.
We are entering summer so thats what I like about the English Winter it means its summer :-)
Ich liebe den Winter mit seinen klaren Farben, mit dem gemütlichen Beisammensein mit der Familie...und am meisten liebe ich die Freude der Kinder...an Weihnachten, am Schnee und am Beisammensein.
What we love most about winter and christmas time is decorating the house and doing our family christmas picture!! :)
I think they are both so beautiful! either one would be lovely
A fantastic giveaway. love the rose print wallet, the colours and design are just up my street. i love winter months with the crisp frost on the ground and when you go for a walk the frost on the trees and plantlife. I think spider webs are so amazingly intricate and come to life more in the frost too. Perfect opportunities to wrap up warm in all those cosy layers, tights, scarves n gloves etc and indulge in some nice crafts or a good book/film during the dark nights.
I just found you but I'm staying to watch now. :)
My favourite thing about Winter must be Christmas; I love to make handmade gifts for everyone and having the family together.
Great blog and great giveaway, thank you for the opportunity!
A rainy day, a fire & a good book! Both wallets are lovely too.
Right now it's nearly 9pm and I'm sitting underneath my airconditioner as it's still 30 degrees outside. It's so weird to think it's winter somewhere!!
Although I love the heat, I do have to admit that there's a lot I miss about winter, but my absolute favourite things is the roast dinners and pumpkin soups. I love the stodgy food that you crave in the colder months.
PS. This is an awesome giveaway! I love the deco wallet.
I LOVE the winter-time, the crackle of the logs in the stove, the warmth generated by one or more cats sitting on your lap, the first chance to wear the snuggly sweaters you started knitting last winter but didn't finish till the summer, watching the snow magically transform the garden that you didn't quite have time to tidy up because you were crafting...I could go on! It would be the deco wallet for me to remind me of the greens of spring and summer while it's white outside.
Wow! What a lovely giveaway! Love them both but especially the Deco one.
My favourite think about Winter is the first good lot of snow fall. I love it when its been snowing for hours and the sound outside changes. Everything gets muffled and I love that! :D
I love the crisp frosty mornings and the clarity of winter light.
Thank you for the opportunity to enter your giveaway. Both wallets are beautiful, but I think the deco one is more me.
I guess I enjoy the cosy feeling of snuggling in a shawl with a hot mug of tea and a crochet/embroidery/else project. While the world outside is quieting down with harmonious colours, emphasis on lines and soft skies....
What a great giveaway! I love the Deco wallet.
I love everything about Winter - wrapping up warmly and going for snowy walks, comforting stews, sitting in front of the fire and lots of time for making things inside in the warm.
I spent the past 3 years living in the tropics. Now that I am back to reality I can't wait for a snowfall. It is nature's way of glittering our environment! Oh and I adore the Deco wallet!
This is really fun! :)
I love the snow in the winter. I'm not a big fan of being stuck in it (while traveling) or even being in it (I'm not a fan of the cold), but I love being at home sitting bundled up with lots of blankets, yummy hot tea/cider, a slice of cake and a book/movie by the window.
It's truly a wonderful and peaceful experience. Definitely try it, if you haven't already.
I love the rosy wallet--though they're both lovely! :)
I enjoy the frosty mornings with the frost clinging to the trees, hedges and cobwebs making the fresh morning jewelled. Winter gives me an excuse to give friends scarves I've knitted for them. The inevitable inside time is a lovely excuse to do more crafting with the kids. Wren
Such lovely wallets - my favourite is the Deco one - love the green and brown colour combination.
My favourite thing about winter is no more moths about - they scare me witless!
I love the first magical snowfall, and I love the sound of sleigh bells and I love the beautiful pictures that Jack Frost makes on the windows!
And I love both of your fabric wallets, but the Deco one most of all :)
Hi! I like both but the Deco one is my fav. One thing I like most of winter is the dark grey sky with enormous clouds.
I love the coziness of winter. Cuddling up inside with the fire, hot chocolate and Lifetime movies! We tend to get snowed in, literally, for days at a time here in Fargo, so I always keep hot chocolate on hand so we are ready!
I love the deco wallet!

I love winter beacuse it's time to sit inside in front of the firepalce doing crochet, reading or just doing nothig but looking at the fire.
I love winter for its light...
Thank you for this nice giveaway.
I like both wallets!!!
My favourite thing about winter is that I can pull out my slow cooker again! Do all the prep the night before, bung it all in, switch it on just before leaving to go to work and it does it magic throughout the day. After a stressful and tiring day at work, the smell of the stew hits me as soon as I enter the block of flats, getting stronger as I go up the stairs. Wonderful thing to welcome you after a long day and cold journey home!
Thanks for giving us the chance to win - my favourite is the rosy one :)
Oh my goodness... I love the rosy one specially! What I like most about winter is feeling free to curl up with a cup of tea and something decidedly stodgy and comforting... crumpets are good... and not feeling guilty because we need extra food in the winter!
What a lovely giveaway! My favourite things about winter are being able to wear snuggly jumpers and scarves, and going for walks on cold sunny days. I'd love either of the wallets but if I had to choose it would be the deco one.
my favorite part of the winter season is sipping hot chai tea while snuggling under a blanket on the sofa. i think i prefer the deco wallet. thanks for the giveaway!
I love family walks and a blazing fire in the evenings!
I'd choose Rosy if I was lucky enough to win!
Winter is my favourite season of the year for so many reasons, but ill try and compress them just for you (and the gorgeous Rosy wallet!)
Winter for me is of course the gathering of family, exchanging of presents, creations of mulled wine and savouring the moist Christmas Turkey that only my dad can cook perfectly each year. Its the singing of Christmas songs as I play the piano whilst the fire crackles in the corner, lighting our faces that are already rosey from alcohol. Its the midnight kiss that transports you into the slumber, only to be woken by the rustling of my kitten unwrapping my first stocking present for me. Winter is my sanctuary of happiness, and I long for it all year round.
ooooohhhhh, what do I love about winter? snow and fires and hot chocolate and dark nights under blankets and movies and knitting and Christmas and the anticipation of spring..... it's a cosy season. The wallets are beautiful.... I think the deco one just pips the post for desireability for me thoough.....
what a perfect time for me to get back into blogland after months of slacking! pick me pick me for the deco!
my favorite thing about winter is christmas.
I love winter - being able to spend time outdoors rugged up in scraves and gloves, then coming indoors to warmth, yummy winter foods, knitting and lots of cuddles.
I love your deco wallet. Hope I win!!
my favourite thing about winter is definitly snuggling up with my family at night oh and knitting!i simply have to knit when it gets to this time of year
I love the crunch of fresh snow as you walk on it or to watch it falling at night through the street lights, whilst all warm a snuggly inside.
I love both your lovely wallets but if I have to choose I love the colour combo of brown and turquoise!
My favorite thing about winter is a long walk on a Sunday through the forest, with the family. Then getting home changing into warm pyjamas and cuddling up on the sofa to a film with a big mug of hot chocolate!!! Bliss.
I love both your wallets but the Rosy one just a bit more.
I love your wallets--they're so pretty! I plan on making one, but winning one of yours would be so much more fun (not to mention easy). Anyway, I hate, hate, hate the cold, but my birthday is in the winter, not to mention all the holidays, so I guess winter can stay.
Oh these are such cuties. I would love to win.
My favorite thing about winter is (besides the holidays) snow. Love snow. I don't like driving in it but I love how it sparkles when coming down from the heavenly skies.
I'm so happy to have an opportunity to enter the contest. I love winter for Christmas and I love Christmas music, Christmas dinner, seeing kids opening up their gifts, sharing with others, Christmas plays, Christmas trees, Christmas lights, advent calendars, Christmas Concerts, movies.... I think you get my point. Well, I hope you have a wonderful Winter Season and thanks for sharing your handmade beautiful wallet (I agree with everyone else I think both are gorgeous, but I like the Deco Wallet) with a lucky recipient.
What I love about winter is finally wearing a sweater. Living in the desert doesn't provide much opportunity for that. I love the "Deco" wallet. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.
These wallets are gorgeous, i love them.
I live in new zealand( so i dont blame you if you dont want to ship one half way across the world ) and winter was a while ago now, but anyway, my favourite thing about winter is when the first snow falls, and you wake up in the morning and look out the window and every thing is covered in this white blanket of snow. Then you go outside amd sometimes the snow is still falling and there is no wind, and everthing is quiet, there is nothing but you and these millions of tiny snowflakes, not one the same, all floating down like tiny fairys. I always feel sad when some one walks across the snow, and its not just a perfect, unbroken white sheet any more.( then i love watching my little bros and sister build snow men , they are so cute, bundled up like marshmellows).
I love both the wallets but i think i lke the deco one just a tinsy bit more.
Might give it to my mum for xmas:)
Or might just have to keep it. We will see.
Christmas has to be the best thing about winter, surely?
I love both wallets so if I was a lucky winner I wouldn't mind which :0)
@missielizzieb on Twitter x
What I like-
Having an sneaky excited feeling that it won't be long until Easter/spring craft making
My excitement regarding future uses for the wrapping paper on gifts that I have been given ( and the careful removal of paper to keep it crisp!)
Reminiscing about each bauble's origin as I decorate the tree ( and then experience some guilt regarding whether it is truly necessary to showcase the more ugly decorations but which have sentimental value!)
Time for a mince pie now...
