One World One Heart

Photo


I am very excited to discover and participate in an amazing blogging event!
it is called One World One Heart. It is conceived by one very creative Lisa "oceandreamer" Swifka
aka a whimsical Bohemian
This giveaway is a great way to meet many bloggers from all over the world. Click the logo above to learn more about the event and visit other bloggers participating
I've noticed many amazingly creative bloggers are giving away their incredible crafts and creations.
I am not crafty and don't knit,build,draw,sew.. etc...If I created something... trust me.. NO ONe would want it SO Here is what I've decided to give away... Isn't she sweet?
She is POLLY the little kitchen maid from the upstairs downstairs bears collection! This collection was designed by artist Carol Lawson and dept 56 giftware. I am guessing it was purchased in the mid 90's.

I remember the day i picked this up as a gift to myself to add to my bear collection. I was feeling like an exhausted little kitchen maid that day!



If u click the photo <<<>>>>




EZ rules...
* leave a comment on this post.
* everyone welcome to enter, make sure to leave an email address where I can reach you.
* On February 12th a random winner will be drawn from the comments left. (i plan on putting all the numbers of comments in a bowl and having my son draw a number) I will notify the winner and announce it on my blog.
* If you choose to follow my blog you'll be given two more entries to the draw!

*** A FUN SuRPriSE Gift for a second winner is being worked on as we speak!(NOT by UN-crafty me but by Mr. 'VERY CRAFTY' Petals himself!) If it's finished by 2/12.. After I pick the winner of Polly, I will put the numbers back in bowl and pick winner of surprise prize!)
**update**IT'S FINISHED! SEE 2ND PRIZE IN SIDEBAR & BELOW!
My husband usually paints original ideas, but he was very inspired by Natasha Wescoat and although this is not an exact copy of her work, it is similar. This is done in acrylics on a 6"x8" canvas. Hope u love it like i do!
