I love knowing whatever else happens, however far apart we are, Christmas Eve, we are all eating the same thing. :)

And also as a way to say thanks to all my amazing customers over at The Goose Beary Shop. So here is what I am offering.

A sweet little six inch Waldorf Doll. this Toddler doll is stuffed with clean cared wool. Her body, hands, and face are made from cotton interlock. Her hair is natural yarn and her skirt is 100% quilters cotton. To enter leave a comment here. I will close comments Friday the 17th and ship out Saturday the 18th. So she SHOULD make it to USA people by Christmas. :) Enjoy!
