As promised here are details of my Birthday Giveaway!
Recently on Jain Squires Blog , http://giddykipperdolls.blogspot.com/Jain had the most wonderful House elf and I contacted her but unfortunatly someone had beaten me to it and he was spoken for. Jain very kindly agreed to make another and within no time at all, ( Jain is incredibly speedy considering how wonderful her creations are, and how much detail !!) Jain emailed pictures me, of not one , but 4 House elves to choose from!
It was a difficult decision but I kept getting drawn to one in particular. I surprised not only Jain but also myself when I chose the little lady elf! I had always wanted a Dobby lookalike but there was just something about her adorable face. She looks like she would be a little scatty, and very timid and I just fell in love with her!
I have a tiny attic room in the top of the Potter house which has trunks, antiques, piles of washing, old hats and chairs etc and I could just see her up there cleaning away all the dust. She looks to be a very tidy elf who likes things 'just so'
SO...now to the fun part. She has no name. If Jain had named her all well and good but she hadnt so the name is up to you guys please!
Im not brilliant with names and would love any suggestions that match her personality as I see it. She arrives tomorrow but must stay boxed til the big day so Im told, but here are photos Jain sent to me so you can see her and how fabulous she is !
The winner will be chosen by Lola on my birthday, next Tuesday 16th February. In the evening, going out for the day!!
And the prize will be a new copy of this wonderful special Limited Edition 'Dollshouse Projects'
This mag came out for a limited time in WhSmith shop only over Christmas and I grabbed a few copies as they never reprint them and it is stacked with loads of amazing projects.

Create a Mouse House by Julie Campell of http://bellabelledolls.blogspot.com/
This mag is more like a book it is so full of great articles .
Now I know international bloggers probably will love this but in the UK alot of you may have grabbed a copy already so if the winner is in the UK and has it, then your prize will be
The brand New DVD by Charlotte Stokoe and Darlene Stevens , One to Twelve Scale, A Documentary about the curiously charming World of the dolls house makers.
Alot of this is Filmed on Location at Kensington Dolls Fair 2008 . I would think this is region 2 only so this is if the winner is UK and has the mag already.
And if you have both, then Ill have to think of something equally great!
Have fun , please post your names suggestions and see you on my birthday if not before!!
