Remember, for many of these prizes, we pay for shipping out of our own pocket, so if you’re able to “add some turf to the Fireside” we’d greatly appreciate it.

  1. Compared with other gifts, my wee Irish angels are pretty small potatoes (pun intended) but if you send me a name or two I’d be happy to mail some out. I misunderstood last year, thinking you could include one with each gift, not knowing that most donors were shipping them direct.
    Or if you want some to include this year, let me know how many and they will be winging their way to the North.
    And I definitely expect to win a super prize. Are we exchanging gifts again this year? The Secret Santa wasn’t exactly secret but it was lots of fun and I am up for a name drawing.

  10. Milo, thanks for your comment! I make those little angels by the hundreds (most go to Ireland via post since they can’t really fly) but seldom have any feedback. Merry and Blessed Christmas to you and yours!

  11. Erin,

    Glad that you enjoyed your calendar! I try to offer a different one every year.


    I have heard a lot about your angels. Remember, its not the size of the angel but the heart of the creator taht makes them special!
