Ancient Hearth GIVEAWAY to Bring in the New Year: King Winter!


King Winter now is in the land,
He reigns with cold and freezing hand.
He makes Jack Frost touch nose and toe,
And brings us white and shining snow.
~ from Wynstone Press' "Winter" book


In celebration of the new year, I wanted to offer a giveaway of the new King Winter that will be in my etsy shop later this month. My shop is still on vacation mode so we can enjoy the rest of the holidays, but I'm excited about making some new creations this year!

To enter the giveaway, just leave me a comment that you'd like to be entered to win this King Winter doll :)
The lucky winner will be announced this Friday, January 7!

May you all be blessed with a wonderful 2011 full of health, peace, and lots of love!

Happy 2011!!!!
