Christmas Traditions with a Christmas Book Giveaway

Having spent the last couple days baking holiday treats, making grocery list for our 27th Christmas Brunch,wrapping gifts for under the tree and packaging up special baubles for dear friends I've thought a lot about Christmas Traditions that each family shares. Along with all the normals we share- precious time with friends, hustle and bustle of shopping, the hectic days spent at Vintage Village, I also cherish cozy time spent with a good holiday book.

An all time favorite is from Atlanta author Mary Kay Andrews. Her Savannah Blues, Savannah Breeze and Blue Christmas novels are a story line all too familiar to the life any junker lives.

This makes the 6th Christmas that I've enjoyed "Blue Christmas" so, I'm guessing that too is now to be considered a sweet "hag" holiday tradition.

It's the week before Christmas, and antiques dealer Weezie Foley is in a frenzy to garnish her shop for the Savannah historical district decorating contest, which she intends to win. But suddenly things start to go missing from her display, and there seems to be a mysterious midnight visitor to her shop.
Still, Weezie has high hopes for the holiday—maybe in the form of an engagement ring from her chef boyfriend. But Daniel, always moody at the holidays, seems more distant than usual. Throw in Weezie's decidedly odd family, a 1950s Christmas-tree pin, and even a little help from the King himself (Elvis, that is), and maybe there will be a pocketful of miracles for Weezie this Christmas Eve.

Thrilled to hear from Meg at Tandem Literary who graciously sent Vintage Village signed copies of this "hag" favorite. Just like Weezie... it's the week before Christmas and we have one copy left to GIVEAWAY! Leave a quick comment here on why you'd like to add this darling book to your holiday traditions and we'll select a winner December 20 and ship it to them quick!

Thank you Meg for the books.

Thank you Mary Kay Andrews for this favorite story!

Merriest Christmas!

  1. I have been wanting to read this one... the only MKA book that I haven't read! So, send me some Christmas cheer from one junker to another! (Fingers crossed)

  2. I love all the Mary Kay Andrew books but I have to say that this one is my ALL TIME FAVORITE!!! I have borrowed it from our local library soooo many times!!! I just don't have my own copy... :( Please send it my way! It will always be treasured here!!! :)

  3. I just bought & currently reading the last copy (paperback) of Blue Christmas our local bookstore had in stock ~ really enjoying reading it too! I would love to have a signed copy, it would be a prized possesion!

  4. I have a twin sister who finally listened to me and read Mary Kay Andrews. She loves the books. During the holidays we like to spend evenings at each others house reading. What better way to spend the holiday season than with both of us curled up reading Blue Christmas?!

  5. I am a Georgia (UGA) girl. I discovered MKA a few years ago & love all her books. I am re-reading Blue Christmas on my kindle, but I'd LOVE a "real" copy to add to my Christmas decorations!
