Hosting a GIVE-A-WAY







Last year I created and sold hundreds of paper doll ornaments on ebay and will be listing them starting now through the holiday season again this year... I thought it would be fun to share a little give-a-way with my blogging friends to kick this season off... I am offering in the 3rd place the 4 paper dolls pictured... In 2nd place the 6 paper dolls pictured and in first place the 12 Ladies in Hats with feathers and hat pins.....
Please leave a comment and I will enter you and IF YOU PLACE A POST ON YOUR BLOG ABOUT THE GIVE-A-WAY I WILL ENTER YOUR NAME TWICE...The dolls winning names will be drawn Sunday September 28,2008 in the evening about 8:00 ... This will give you time and post if you would like entered twice.... Thanks and good luck.....

Hello from Canada
I adore your ornaments. My mom of 90 years would think of these as very very precious. If I win I will give it to her. Anita is her name. I also have an Aunt who will be 95 and her name is Madelaine.
Love them all and now I'm going to your e-bay just in case some other lucky lady wins...lol
