ETTA MAE IS HOME


I was the lucky winner of a giveaway hosted by Robin at The Primitive Hutch recently!  I was so excited when the post man pulled in the driveway this morning and beeped his horn, I ran out on the porch in my pajamas.  I didn't care...I knew it was Robin's package!

I brought it in and first things first:  it had to pass the "cat scan".  


Once the "cat scan" was complete, my daughter and I opened the box and were met by our favorite colors: purple & lime green!  Robin sent this awesome rooster card of congratulations for winning - I love black roosters, have a feeling this card might end up framed.  


I was so thrilled when I lifted Etta Mae out of the box and unwrapped her.  Robin made her from a Jackie Schmidt pattern.  She felt heavy and everything about her was prim PERFECT and so well put together.  My daughter held her gently for about 10 minutes before I could get my hands on her.  LOL!  She looks so great on the antique child's chair next to our fireplace.  This is a doll I will cherish forever.


Robin was sweet enough to send the above items also! A primitive wooden heart, magnetic note pad (love these!) and two large tarts that I believe might be pumpkin spice, my favorite, and read "McCall's County Canning".  Thanks so much, Robin, for hosting this wonderful giveaway! I sure feel like one lucky gal!

Congratulations, Lisa, on an awesome win! Robin does amazing things with those hands of hers - and you'll find none any sweeter. So glad dear Etta Mae went to someone who will give her a good home - she is a beautiful doll - and I'm glad she has such a special place in your home. (Can I hire your kitty to do my next cat scan?? I think it would be much more enjoyable....) ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
