My First Blogiversary!

Hi you guys! It was 1 year ago today that I started this blog. Jeez - thats gone so quickly!
To start with this was an outlet for people that bought my things at markets, to see what I was working on. But its now starting to be a bit more about us as well. I suppose I do feel like its more of a chance to see the dolls evolving (i've been making them for less than 2 yrs).  I thought they 'had' evolved already. But as I'm asked to make different things for custom orders and also the urge to do something different for fairs etc - they are changing all the time!

 Anyway, because this is an anniversary - I have a few things I'd like to give away if you are interested?! Its not a doll this time - I've done two giveaways of dolls , so decided to change it up this time. All you need to do is - if you are a follower  - just leave me a comment here! You could win these three things...

A felted wool rug brooch, in my favourite colour.

A purple Pocket Softie in Miss Greta's fav colours.
(thats a hidden pocket on the tummy)

And also this repurposed vintage tie cushion!
These ties are of the lovely textured variety - who look so much better all together, rather than by themselves!

I will get one of the staff to draw a winner after sunday the 5th of December!x
PS. Thanks so much for hanging around!
