A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving



My most humble apologies, dear reader, apparently I have completely lost track of time!

I have been galavanting around, defying space and time, while Momma continues to struggle with her health. 

However, the Holidays are upon us so it is Time for me to start posting regularly again. 

So let me tell you about Aunt Heidi. 

Momma was selling Molly’s yellow bed a few weeks ago and was contacted by a Local Woman who was interested in buying it. As a reference (Safety first!) she texted that she was @fromauntheidi on Instagram. 

Momma replied that I had an inactive (ahem!) account on Instagram as @steampunkaddie. The next thing Momma got was this text:


!!!!!!! I HAVE HAD A PIC OF STEAMPUNK ADDY (sic) SAVED IN MY "INSPIRATION" FOLDER FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS! 

And it's YOU! Omgomgomg!


(Modest blush)

Of course Aunt Heidi had to meet Me when she came over to get the bed. 

Thus was the Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship. 

In celebration of that Friendship, I want to share Aunt Heidi’s latest giveaway on Instagram. 

In my family a very important part of Thanksgiving was watching “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and having dinner of toast, popcorn, pretzels, and jelly beans. Year after year this tradition kicks off the holiday season. So, of course, I had to make a doll-sized version!

Not familiar with “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”?

Turkey, cranberries, pumpkin pie…and the Peanuts gang to share them with. This is going to be the greatest Thanksgiving ever!

The fun begins when Peppermint Patty invites herself and her pals to Charlie Brown’s house for a REALLY big turkey party. Good grief! All our hero can cook is cold cereal and maybe toast. Is Charlie Brown doomed? Not when Linus, Snoopy and Woodstock chip in to save the (Thanksgiving) Day. With such good friends, Charlie Brown – and all of us – has so many reasons to be thankful.

One winner will receive a yellow knit Charlie Brown T-shirt, a tiny DVD, and a plate of classic Charlie Brown Thanksgiving dinner: toast, pretzels, popcorn, and jelly beans. 

In order to win you must 1) follow Aunt Heidi’s Instagram account, 2) leave a comment telling her your favorite Thanksgiving (or holiday) tradition, 3) be age 18 or have parent/guardian permission, and 4) have a U.S. mailing address (sorry Canada, et al). Contest will close on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018 at midnight (Pacific time). Aunt Heidi will select and notify a winner on Monday, Nov. 12, 2018. 

Good luck!
