The Christmas Lodge Review & Giveaway!

Okay, I am the type of person who likes a good movie. One of my favorites for the longest time has been Anne of Green Gables. Another good one is Fireproof. This is such a great movie! But I had one come in that I was able to review and this one turned out pretty good! The Christmas Lodge is quite a film and I think you all will enjoy it:) There is also a giveaway opportunity so get your entries in below.

Thomas Kinkade presents Christmas Lodge: a place where a heart-warming past and loving future meet for one remarkable group of people.

During a weekend trip to the mountains, Mary (Erin Karpluk) finds herself at the now- dilapidated lodge where she spent the holidays with her family growing up. She becomes determined to restore the building to its former glory. Inspired by her grandfather and guided by her grandmother in heaven, Mary throws herself into the project, and during the process finds herself drawn to Jack (Michael Shanks), a handsome man who loves the lodge as much as she does.

Historically unlucky in love, this chance encounter allows Mary to renew her faith in life and discover her one true love. The Christmas Lodge is an uplifting story about the importance of faith, family and the true holiday spirit.



MY REVIEW-This is a heartwarming film and yet a tear jerker. This is a Thomas Kinkade film and I have only read a couple of the Thomas Kinkade books, but this is exactly like his books! The peaceful, beautiful scenery mixed with a lovely story makes for an excellent film. I personally loved Jack and his desire to try to fix up the ole Christmas Lodge. Mary was a great supporter but I think the acting was a little overdone. She almost seemed more like a teenager at times. And in my opinion, Kent was a wonderful guy! He seemed really sweet and kept me laughing. The ending of the film is soooo sweet! Overall a good film.

Readers, one of you will win this film. It is not included in my gift guide, but let me tell you, this would make a perfect gift! Especially for a couple or a woman who loves a good movie. Follow directions below and one of you will win a copy of this film!

The project that I wanted to finish would be my father's house. I think it would be great to fix it up and return it to its former glory.

You asked about a project that I haven't finished. I started a quilt. I was making one for me and one for my BFF. I got into a car accident which made if extremely difficult to sit.

It's been about 6 years. I still have all I need to finish. I hope to finish it next year! I'm in better health now and for that I'm thankful!

This looks like a good moviel

One of my favorite movies is It's a wonderful Life with Jimmy Stewart. Marlo Thomas made a movie with a similar name but it was the woman that was the bread winner in the family. I really loved that movie too. It's hard to find. I haven't found it yet!
