Anniversarie Celebration!

my dear friends,
oh, where does the time go?
It doesn't seem that so many years have passed since I first came to Deerfield Farm as a new bride. Where we made a home for our family & where the very first Deerfield dolly was made for our first Christmas tree angel.
~~~~~~~
I have been so very blessed...and now I must
thank all of you,
my wonderful friends, old and new...
who have met me with such joy, such wonderful support and love and enthusiasm for my little dollies & me over these past 20 years.
and so
In Honor of celebrating these 20 years of my dolly making that has been done here under the old Deerfield Farm sign above my door
I am offering a most Wondrous Doll as Grand Prize in a drawing that I will be conducting.
I will be accepting entries from today until
September 30,2007.
On October 1st, 2007, we will draw 5 different names,
4 of which will be awarded
lovely prizes of Wonderful Goodes
made by myself just for this Anniversaire Celebration.
The Grand Prize winner will be given
a most Wondrous Doll
that I have made just for this most Special Occasion.
Please EMAIL me with your full name and email address if you would like to be a part of this most Special Anniversarie Celebration. Your entry will be put into the old top hat.
My little grand children will be drawing out the names and the winners will be announced on October 1st.
I hope that all of you will enter, especially those of you who have given homes to my dollies over the years.
I'm so happy and pleased to be doing this as a small of offering
of my sincere thanks and humble gratitude to all of you.
with love,
Christine
Deerfield Farmhouse

I was thinking that it is I who should be thanking you, for so many years of inspiration.
So I will! Thank you so very much, for inspiring me, both with your artwork and with a life that is lived in the truest sense of the word.
