You may remember a couple of weeks ago the giveaway at The Country Primitive Shoppe for "The Crow's Guide To Magic" book and soft sculpture that Dina was having on her blog. There was also a "name that bowl filler" contest. You can click on
(here)The Country Primitive Shoppe to go to Dina's blog.
Well, imagine my surprise when she told me I was getting a "surprise" ornament for being so kind about spreading the word and following her blog. It came in the mail today, here he is:
(again, I apologize for the camera work, I just don't have any talent for taking pictures)
The picture doesn't do him justice. He's a very pretty painted light brown color, muslin gingerbread boy stuffed and stiffened, with little black glass seed eyes and painted cream squiggles on his hands and feet. He's about 5 1/2 inches long and 3 1/2 inches arm to arm. I love him.
And, this was another big gesture of kindness that prim and arts and crafts bloggers are famous for. I love showing artists' work, giveaways and tutorials and don't expect anything in return. But it's awfully nice indeed when an artist and fellow blogger shows their appreciation by sending an unexpected gift. The group of bloggers that I follow and their followers are the nicest people I've ever met.
