A giveaway for Down in the meadow









I have so enjoyed putting this giveaway together. As I said in my earlier post last week, I so enjoy Maileg items and I just don't get to see them in South Africa so, I thought it was time to make a collection for my own home and also to share a little with you. The 'twist' comes with the knitted items. My passion is to create toys. I have added my own colors and touches and designs. All these treasures have been handmade with pure cotton, pure wool, stuffed with pure wool stuffing, cotton ribbon, threads and pure felt..all natural.

For this giveaway, the reciever of the gift will receive

1 bunting with flags, a sheep, a pig, a basket with a bird, a Christmas fairy, a duck, a toy soldier and Christmas tree.

1 gorgeous soft girl bunny holding her duckling toy.

1 very smart toy soldier

1 Christmas star and two Christmas hanging cones...

Please feel free to leave comments, tell a friend or two and I will announce the receiver of these goods next Thursday afternoon South African time~

A warm and happy day to you~!

waiting breathless!!

liebchenhut said...

It is difficult to put into words what I experience when I see something I appreciate...often if I see something appealing in person, I will reach out and touch it lightly always remembering what my mother would say, "touch with your eyes not with your hands,"...should these creations be destined my way, I will cherish and respect them...always reminded of the beautiful heart that crafted them...maria

Thank you for the opportunity and i will certainly be telling some friends. I often pop in here and have referred your blog before. I have so little time for this sort of creating, but i am sure if i never stopped anywhere to say hi i would, but that would not be much fun either. Gorgeous, gorgeous blog...sweet day x
