Saturday Giveaway - Lavender Dolls from Fairies Nest

Cynthia Toy, from The Fairies' Nest is offering a beautiful pair of handmade lavender dolls.

She has been a doll maker for about 20 years and her dollmaking developed from an acute fiber addiction that she inherited from her mom; plus an overactive imagination, reading lots of fantasy, 3 sons, and from just loving to play with dolls!

Each of her dolls requires many hours to make as Cynthia designs and creates each doll completely from her own imagination. Many of the dolls are made from the inside out without patterns and each face is carefully drawn and painted by hand using no patterns or stencils. Because of this, no two dolls are EVER exactly alike, they are all one of a kind; like people, each has its own distinct personality.

To win this beautiful pair of lavender dolls from The Fairies' Nest, please visit her shop and then leave a comment here about what you like best.
To be entered a second time blog about the giveaway (leave another comment).
To be entered a third time, facebook or twitter it! (be sure to leave another comment)

The drawing will be held Friday, August 27, at 7:00 pm EST.

Oh, so difficult to pick a favorite as all of her creations are so lovely. But if pressed I would have to pick the little "gnomeling" as he is just way too adorable.

Well, that's hard to decide, but I love the Pixie and the Pins (both star and doll). Cool stuff. I love Waldorf-style dolls.

The Lavender Babies are so sweet. While the Fall Pixie is stunning (I cannot even begin to imagine how she created that), the Lavender Babies remind me of the little kiddles I had and loved when I was a little kiddle myself - only those were plastic - oh to have had these wee ones.
