Christmas Vintage Giveaway!


To say thank you, Sweet Friends~
My Christmas Giveaway!


I drew two cardinals... perched on Holly branches.
One of dearest hand made vintage dresses!
~Found at an antique store in Canandaigua, NY~
17" long from neck to hem...
approx. 5.25" at waist from seam to seam...
10.5" wide at base hem...
A beautiful long gown for the sweetest of friends!

  
I drew a sprig of holly on the chest...


Close ups of the stitching details...


You can see my pen lines bleed through...
The doll dress has wear, light stains...
There is LOADS of love hugged into this collectible!


Please comment on this post if you would like to have
your name put in the basket for a chance to win!
My Sweet Girl will pull the name on December 10th!
That way I can have it to you before Christmas~
If you do not have a blog where I can leave a message for you...
Please leave an email with your comment~


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... hmmmmm...
The lack of snow has me itching to draw, paint and design snow friends!
Once I shovel inches, feet... heavy stuff~
I'll be ready to draw fuzzy, cuddly teddy loves!


I just listed eight new canvas totes in my Etsy store...
I'm shipping Christmas treasures the same day~
Or first thing next morning through December!


My mom would build snowmen with our son.
They would stand at the window and holler when they finished...
I took pictures every time!
We would tell stories all evening~
About what our new snow friends were doing outside...
When no one was looking!

I was very sure they kept our songbirds cozy and shared hugs~

Thank you for your friendship, comments, purchases & laughs!
Hope you like the giveaway~

This sweet dress is such a nice giveaway. The artwork is the perfect touch. The cardinal is our
