My Gift to You

25 Mar 2008

Two of Katie's old dollies


Over the past few months I have had so many new readers as well as my dear regular readers/friends visiting and joining in with my blog.
It has been a pleasure to read your comments or just to know you are visiting and enjoying (?) my version of my happy days.


To thank you all for what you add to my blog and the happiness you bring to my days as I read your comments and emails and visit your blogs I want to give a gift, a doll.

If you would like the chance to give a home to one of my dolls just leave a comment on this post any time over the next week, let's say until April 2nd and then I will draw a name for the winner of the doll.

I'm in the process of making some new dolls now and one of those will be my gift to one of you.


THE GIVE AWAY IS NOW CLOSED

  12. What a generous gift! I love your dolls and they made me think about trying my hand at doll making again. I tried it many moons ago but gave it up when too many materials were too hard to find where I lived at the time. Love the photos of your grapes, I wonder if I could grow some in my backyard. ;)

  32. Hi Jenny, I'm still reading your blog almost every day and still enjoy it very much. Don't put me in the draw, I'm well past the age for dolls, and I have no grandbabies yet. I just wanted to comment on your generosity. It seems that all my favourite bloggers are generous by nature, and I love to see generosity work its magic and then return full circle.

  35. Hi Jenny, I love reading your blog- your lifestyle is something I aspire to :) My 20 month old daughter has learnt to say "dolly", so when they come up on the computer screen, that's what she says, so cute!

  37. Well what a kind and generous thing for you to do. It is you who make my day and, give me so much pleasuer when I check in. I missed the lovely little girl with the blond hair, so I would be thrilled if I won another. But if not, that's ok too. Have a wonderful time with this, it sounds like lots of fun?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Jenny, reading your blog each day is already a very special gift you give. I would love to give one of your precious dolls a home too :)

    Thank you for your generous spirit! Like Rhonda, I have also noticed that fellow bloggers who value simple, but very rich lives are spontaneously generous and bless those around them.

  69. Lastnight I told my collection of handmade Dollies (all scattered around the house) that I was going to send in a little blog and they might have a new friend come to live with them. I heard them all having a little chitchat and they are very excited!!

    Jenny, first thing in the morning I go outside to listen to all the different sounds of nature, and check on the colour of the Tomatoes, then I come in and read your blog, and a sense of peace comes over me.

  104. Hi,

    I find your blog a real comfort as we are up in living up in the UK far from our Australian home. My daughter has never really been a 'doll girl' I think this is because she is drawn to the comfort of hugging soft toys rather than plastic dolls which she has been given in the past. I think one of your beautiful soft dolls may be just the thing to convert her!

    Thanks
