Holiday Giveaway!!!!!!!

If you've read my blog for any amount of time, you know that I love blog giveaways. I love entering them and hosting them. In the evening while DH channel surfs, I read blogs. I've been blessed to win a number of giveaways (thank you, friends)  Just this week, I received an email from April at KoolBeenz . April does lots of neat things on her blog especially a weekly giveaway. 

I was fortunate to win a gift certificate from SkyeReve fabrics. Natasha has lots of cute fabric; but once I saw that she had Ruby by Bonnie & Camille for Moda, my decision was made.

But wait!  I've been wanting to do another giveaway and what better thing to giveaway than something I'd love to have myself. Natasha has agree to this change in the giveaway. She has set not 1, but 2 of the Ruby charm packs aside for us. The giveaway will end on Monday, Dec. 12th at 5:00 EST.  To enter the giveaway for the 2  Charm Packs of RUBY fabric, leave a comment telling me the name of a movie that you enjoyed. Next Wednesday, I'm having hip replacement surgery. I plan to watch lots of movies during my recovery period and need some suggestions.  Thanks for entering "OUR" giveaway! Thanks especially to April and Natasha for their generosity in their giveaway!

What a very fun and generous giveaway Becky.

I hope your surgery goes well and you have a very speedy recovery. Some of my favorite movies are
Pride and Prejudice (BBC)
You've Got Mail
Some of the old Doris Day movies are so funny. A good remedy for recovery :-)

Debra said...

Comedy will help you heal:

The Russians are Coming, the Russians are Coming; The Out-of-Towners (the original with Jack Lemmon); The Money Pit; The Long Long Trailer; and The Thrill of it All are a few of my favorites!

Sue said...

Wishing you the best on your upcoming surgery

What a very generous give - away

I enjoyed the movie " THE PROPOSAL "

Diane said...

I agree with all suggestions so far - easy recovery movies all of them (I prefer the Emma with Jonny Miller in it).

North and South has the best cinematic kiss in it at the end.

Maybe my all time favorite re-watchable is When Harry Met Sally. Any Nora Ephron movie is a good one too.

Lynn said...

I love When Harry Met Sally. Forget Paris is another good one along those same lines. I also like

Eat, Pray, Love
Notting Hill
You've Got Mail
Sleepless in Seattle

Hope your surgery goes well!

FIRST,I want to wish you a very successful operation+ a comfortable post-op recovery!
Recently heard great reviews of the new movie "The Help".
Isn't 'Ruby' one of the prettiest fabric lines to come out recently ?
Thanks for a sweet+generous giveaway!

Gretchen said...

Hope your surgery goes well and you are up and quilting again soon. Let me know if you need some company although I bet your house will be busy with the holidays & LSU games. I love watching Charlie Brown Christmas and Elf this time of year. But for some really good watching you can't go wrong Katherine Hepburn & Spencer Tracy :) Speedy recovery!

Sandie ~call me crazy said...

If you are looking for laughs, I'd choose Elf. My DFIL had hip surgery a couple weeks ago and is going home tomorrow. Hope you have a speedy recovery too! Thanks for the fun!

Penny said...

Well I was going to suggest the first three that Anita has, along with:
Emma, BBC with Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller.
Jane Eyre, BBC with Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens.

Hope the surgery is successful! Thank you for the chance of some Ruby which I am not allowed to buy at the moment.

Deb said...

There are loads of great movies to watch this time of year - and people have already suggested several. For some comic relief, I suggest hunting down Pixar Shorts (on the Disney channel) when they run as a movie. All that creative energy condensed into 5 minute shorts!

Anonymous said...

Every Christmas Eve DH and I watch the original Ghost and Mrs. Muir. I wait for that more than for presents, dinner, anything. Thanks for the change to win! VermontPines@aol.com

Leah said...

Hope your surgery goes well next week. Some movies I enjoy are The Princess Bride, Stardust, and The Illusionist with Edward Norton. Charade with Cary Grant is a good one too. Even though I know who dun it, I still like to watch it. Oh and lets not forget North by Northwest, Silver Streak, and Stir Crazy. All goodies. :)

Lee said...

Wishing you a speedy recovery - have fun watching -
The Kings Speech
Captain America
Priates of Carib. 4 and
Julia Julia

Michelle said...

I love movies! A couple I'd like to suggest:

When Harry Met Sally...

Hope you have a speedy recovery. Thanks for the chance!

Merry Christmas!!!

Patty D from NC said...

I'd love to win. The movie the Help is good

Janet said...

There is a wonderful movie called Being Caribou if you like animals and adventure. True story. It's available on Netflix. Good luck with your surgery.

Brenda said...

I love Elf, Little Women, Fried green Tomatoes, The Guardian, Unstoppable.

Good luck with your surgery. I'll be praying!

Jan said...

Becky, Bob and I both loved Moneyball. I bet you would too. I'd love to get my hands on Ruby!

JustPam said...

Good luck and a speedy recovery for your surgery.

I don't watch a lot of movies. We rented Super 8 the other weekend and that was pretty good.

Stray Stitches (Linda G) said...

Two movies that I could watch over and over again are Steel Magnolias and Twister. And, a new one to my list is The Help. Good luck with your upcoming surgery!! Thanks for the opportunity to enter your great giveaway.

Michele said...

Elf would be a fun movie for you to watch during your recovery! I'm new to your blog, so I don't know you well, but this may make you smile. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

Helen said...

First of all, my prayers will be with you as you face your upcoming surgery. I had surgery for a multiple dislocated and broken shoulder from a fall I took at the end of October. May your surgeon be swift and accurate as he fixes you up good as new.

I've been recovering since November 11 and have been watching Netflix on my computer. I've watched some of their family Christmas movies and a few of them are trite, but I'm kind of a sucker for that (especially this time of year).

I love the movie ELF...Will Ferrell is a hoot!

Get well soon and Merry Christmas.

Oh, I absolutely LOVE the fabric and sure would enjoy using it.

You are truly generous and sweet to offer this giveaway.


Peggy said...

I hope your surgery goes well. I am sure you will do great!! I have had 2 knee replacements and am so thankful I did.

I think any movie with Shirley Temple in it is great!! Of course, there are also all the holiday movies that will be starting soon.

Take care and don't forget your Physical Therapy.

MoeWest said...

The Help just came out on DVD. I wish you a speedy recovery.

grannyanne said...

Here's hoping your surgery ends well and recover time is swift. My all time favorite movie is 'Ever After' with Drew Barrymore. It is another twist on the Cinderella movie and when I just need some escape time... this is it.
Thanks for the chance to win!

quiltmom said...

First, I hope that your surgery goes well and that you have quick recovery.
There are so many fun movies out there- Do you want old or new- For sure you want to get a copy of The Help - and if you haven't read the book - read that too.. It is sensational!
My favorite chick flicks are ones like Sleepless in Seattle, You've got Mail, Bridget Jone's Diary, Pride and Prejudice, Eat, Pray Love, Pretty Woman, and Julie and Julia
I really enjoyed the King's Speech- Something fun would include Mamma Mia.
Mostly fun and light-
Take care,

Barbara said...

Good luck with your surgery.

I liked When Harry Met Sally and The Nightmare Before Christmas

KOcanQuilt said...

I have a couple of silly but wonderful movies I love. One is Princess Bride, and the other is Adventures in Babysitting. I am not a huge movie person, but I have watched these multiple times. Thank you to Sky Reve for the generous giveaway. I love Ruby.

Staci said...

Well, I have always enjoyed While You Were Sleeping, Pride and Prejudice (with Colin Firth, not the newer ones), Bleak House, Downton Abbey (mini series), and for something different and more modern, if you like sci-fi the most recent Star Trek movie was good, and so was Super 8.

Hope you heal up FAST FAST FAST!

Sue Daurio said...

Hope your surgery goes well!

Favorite Holiday movies - Elf, I love the old ones, White Christmas, Miracle on 34th street....But the series, if you need some serious movie time, you should do the Harry Potter series, from start (oh they were so cute when they were little and just started) to finish.

Chiska said...

hope your surgery goes well.
I am not much of a movie watcher, but here are three I like:
White Christmas
The King's Speech
Second Hand Lions

Thanks for the chance.

annmarie said...

Ruby has got to be one of my all time favorite fabrics. Thanks for the chance to win some.

I love dance movies so of course Footloose & Dirty Dancing are 2 of my favorites. Lesser known favorites are Flashdance & White Nights. Good luck with your hip surgery - yu'll be able to dance again too!!!

Crystal said...

Great giveaway! One of my favorite movies is Emma, with Gwyneth Paltrow.

Melissa said...

My favorite movie is Disney's version of "The Three Musketeers." I could watch it 100 times:) Wishing you a speedy recovery from your procedure. I had surgery on my foot nearly 4 years ago and was in a wheelchair for nearly 4 months. You will need lots of good movies to keep your sanity for the time you are down:) Thanks for the great giveaway, too!

Kathy said...

Good luck with your surgery. Wishing you a speedy recovery. If you haven't seen it, Elf is a very funny holiday movie. Hopefully you won't laugh too hard to jar your stitches. Thanks for the Ruby giveaway. LOVE Ruby!

Catskill Quilter said...

I am going to suggest an older movie -- An Unremarkable Life! It is a very gentle movie about two older women who are sisters and living together.

Anonymous said...

If you like an adventure against the odds, try "African Queen" it's a great classic film with Catherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart. I have watched this one over many years and it never loses it's appeal for me.
Trusting for a good report and skillful hands to help you regain your strength. God bless you!

Jo said...

Wishing you a speedy recovery!
Just watch the Twilight series of movies, I could watch them over and over.

Lauren H said...

The Blind Side.

Hope your surgery goes well and that your rehab does, too.

Thanks for the giveaway - I would love to win some Ruby!

Dianne said...

Just watched Gone With the Wind for the umpteenth time. We enjoyed as a family Mr Popper's Penguins for comedy and I can get involved in just about any Hallmark movie!

Connie said...

Good luck with your surgery, my favorite movie is The Tourist with Johnny Dep.

MissMary said...

Can't go wrong with Lord of the Rings Extended Editions. And then there's always the cast commentaries, the directors commentaries, the producers commentaries, the effects team commentaries, the extras about Tolkien, the behind-the-scenes, the costume designs, the made-for-TV specials, the maps, the design galleries... LOADS of fun to geek out upon :-)

Michell said...

Love Ghost and still cry in it

Carla G said...

A movie I recently saw and enjoyed was Burlesque. I hope your surgery goes well and you have a speedy recovery. Thanks for a chance to win! :)

Quilting Mom said...

Lisa C said...

You've Got Mail
Pretty Woman
Arthur Christmas

Good luck with your surgery and speedy recovery.


astitch said...

I hope your op. goes well. I am not really up to date with modern films so am unablr to help with them but I find I can always watch the "Kevin Costner" films and old films like "Zulu". Also of course are the "James Bond" films which I find quite entertaining.

Pat V. said...

I'm in a Christmas mood and recommend "Elf" and "Scrooged" with Bill Murray. "Bull Durham" with Kevin Costner is good. I recently watched and enjoyed "Unknown" with Liam Neeson.

Good luck with the surgery.

hadacres said...

At this time of year, anything on Lifetime or the Hallmark channels are good for some light entertainment. I sit & sew while either of those channels are on & it's a very enjoyable time.
Good luck with the surgery.

Waytogojb said...

Hi Becky,
I love National Lampoon Christmas Vacation. I could even bring it over and watch with you. Prayers going up for you.

free indeed said...

Ever After
North and South (set in England; not about the civil war here)
the new Robin Hood BBC are a few I can think of.
Send Me No Flowers

Melinda said...

Becky - I wish you well with the surgery and a quick recovery. I still like Gone With the Wind but many others that have been mentioned sound good also.

Jeanne said...

We have a Christmas Day Tradition that the first person up turns on the television, finds the movie A Christmas Story and watch it all day, over and over and shouting out the key lines all day. It is so much fun with family and friends.

mo said...

Becky, Here are good thoughts in advance for fast healing. My recommended movie is "Remember the Titans". Maureen H.

Michal Erika said...

Good luck with your surgery.
My two best movies are.....
1. Amelie
2. Ratatouille

Both sure to bring smiles on any gray day.

Andee said...

Sweet November is a favorite of mine!

Anonymous said...

My fav is The Long Kiss Goodnight!

C said...

Calendar Girls, Under the Tuscan Sun, Nights in Rodanthe come to mine. Empowered women. Elf is a good holiday giggle. Positive thoughts for a speedy recovery on the hip surgery so you can get that "sewing" foot back on the pedal.

Miss Jean said...

I'm in the middle of watching The Holiday. A must see movie for this time of year. Also, although it didn't do well at the theaters, we watched Larry Crowne and it was a great, feel good movie. Good luck with the surgery! If you need more movie ideas, check my profile page!!

Nanbon44 said...

I just love these movies

Mamma Mia
Steel Magnolias
Mona Lisa Smiles

Carla said...

Hello there. I loved Seven brides for Seven brothers. A bit old, but wonderful. Thanks.

Marcia W. said...

I like Pride and Prejudice, Emma, as well as Miracle on 34th Street. I had surgery for a broken hip and a long recovery. Rehab and following the Drs directions made a huge difference as my whole gait changed. Saying a little prayer for you.

Nancy Sue said...

Prayers your way for your upcoming surgery. My favs are a bit dark, Times of our Lives (old black and white), Somewhere in Time, The Thornbirds, Motorcycle diaries. So I recommend my comedy list. Get the giggles and get those healing endorphines going.... Elf, Prep and Landing, and any Carol Burnett show bloopers, or bloopers of any kind for that matter. Anything that will get you to LOL :)

Wendy said...

Not a new movie by an stretch but whenever the movie "Dirty Dancing" is on I have to tune in. Good music and characters and I never tire of it even though I know it by heart. Good luck with surgery.
