~*An Autumn GIVE~AWAY!*~

Good Day to ya, my dear FRIENDS! Happy Fall to Ya! To celebrate... I've decided to do a give~away! It has been quite some time since I've offered a freebie or given a gift to one of my bloggin' buddies... so it is definitely due!

I'm going to give this lil' witch dolly to one of you...



She is a prairie, stump doll (she does not have legs)... made of stained osnaburg, sawdust filled, and measures about 10 inches from the top of her brow to the hem of her dress. Her dress is made of antique black wool. I've stitched a lil' linen apron for her with a few primitive motifs ~ moon, potted bloom, and a black cat standing on an olde key. Also stitched is the year '1863'. For extra touches... a few rusty safety pins & a bell, a vintage button... and a handmade broom (made from a stick & a gathering of straw from a bale in the back pasture). My initials & x09 have been stitched on her lower body.

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post. Please make sure though... that I have a way to get in touch with you ~ if you don't have a blog, post your email addy.



I'm going to allow anyone living around the globe to enter. So all my friends are welcome to enter their name.



The give~away will end on Sunday, September 27, 2009... sometime in the evening. Only one entry per person please... to keep it fair for all.

Oh... and I may just drop a few other goodies in with the lil' witch too... so enter NOW!

Wishing you all warm smiles...

Betty
