Thank you! (Give Away)


I have been blogging since 2005. I never thought it would be such fun (and addictive… and time consuming...) Before I had a computer I loved to read (auto)biographies about women in Dutch magazines. At that time I never thought that years later I would read so many different life stories from women all over the world while blogging! Blogging gives me the opportunity to be a part of this. I also enjoy your creativity. Boy, I never found so much inspiration as out here on the net...

This little dress is part of my GIVE AWAY, a thank you to my blog readers. I always love to hear from you, your nice comments, the number of touching (private) emails makes me smile, every time again. Thank you!

Today I aged a body for a new Little Faithy! She is looking forward to a new home. If you want to enter this drawing, leave a comment on this post. You can also send me an email. The drawing will be closed when Little Faithy is finished. The next few days I don’t have a lot of time to sew.This will give a you the chance to sign up for this give away :-)) Good luck.

Lucy

Well this little dress will look great on little Faithy. I like the picture of the nastursums(spelled wrong) in the back ground also. They are one of the flowers I really like and I don't believe I have ever seen a painted picture of them before.
