A Doll Giveaway!

Years ago I found a couple packs of old wooden clothespins at a thrift shop.  They were handy at the time because the hubs and I were selling at SCA events--I did medieval costuming--and it was better to have all our displays looking as "period" as possible.  Yeah, these weren't period, but they were better than plastic clothes hangers.

So I have all these danged clothespins, and thought--dolls.  Of course.

The gist is this...a giveaway!  I need to learn how to manage a giveaway, and I want these little girls to have good homes.  The one on the far right is a gift for a friend's baby.  But list your favorites in order of preference for the other three...all three will find new homes.  Be sure and put contact info in your comment. 

I'll be doing others (I made quite a few of these teeny wenches) later, so hopefully the giveaway practice will help!








They each are about 4" tall.  And I didn't give them names because it just seems like their adoptive homes should do that.  :~)  

(Later edited to add:  Oh yeah!  The drawing will be held January 30, and the dolls will be mailed the 31st.)

  1. What? I can't have them all? Geesh. Okay, I will say that I love them all, and I would be thrilled to win any of them. You can pick if I win. :) I have a shelf where I put tiny dolls, and one of these would love it there. It's very posh and they party every night. ;) xox!

  2. These are awesome! I love them all, but if I had to pick an order of favorites, it would be (from the order in the group photo), 3rd in line, 2nd in line, then 1st in line. My fingers are crossed!

  3. I am so excited! I adore your dolls and am a collector as well, if I can afford it that is. I adore the blonde and little black girl so much! All of them are so adorable! My e-mail address is Linga713@sbcglobal.net and I'm a member of MHA. Happy New Year to you! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed until I know the winner! :)

  7. Oh how I need one of these to go with my beautiful Nurse doll!! I love them all and would be happy with any of them. I guess my favorite(although I like them the same) would have to be the order in the photo of them all.(top) the blue-eyed, the green-eyed, and floral dress.

  11. Aw, they are so darn cute Jan. I love them all, even the purpleone you made for a gift. I'd provide a wonderful home if one were to come live with me. Picking a favorite in order isn't easy. Using the group photo I like #1, then #3, then #2. Have fun with the giveaway and thank you for holding it for us. I'll share a link on my blog to help spread the word.
