Scandanavian Beauty



Every so often, I come across something I must have. Well, there are LOTS of those oftens, but every, every so often, there is something really beautiful to me that I must have. I spotted these little babushka dolls a short time ago and immediately knew I had to have one. But how? No patterns around. I didn't notice any for sale. Then, one of my favorite bloggers, Emily, who lives in Norway, mentions she is making them for a future web shop. So, I waited and lurked (Note to nonbloggers: That means you're poking around the blogs and not commenting every so often that you are there.), and it finally paid off. I think I might have been one of the first to the shop, because I found little Hege here, and she is on her way home to me! I have the perfect place in mind, too, to display her. Please stop by Ravenhill to see what Emily is up to and to her Ravenhill Etsy Shop so you can have a Scandanavian Beauty for yourself. And don't just lurk, hit the comment button on her blog (and mine, too, please!) and let her know what you think!

I've been a RavenHill luker/comment leaver for some time now. Does she have fantastic skills? She is great! And a sweetie too. Her dolls are so cute, makes you feel like your there. Enjoy... I have a double Valentine because our wedding anniversary was last week! My DH treats me special all the time but, this time of year is great! Enjoy your Valentines Day! Jean

You have great taste!! I love the doll you chose. I have to see those fabric/book shelves you wrote about! I have found myself wondering into my craft room just to sit and marvel at my shelves of neatly folded fabric. So nourishing.

Aren´t they the cutest dolls? I ordered one for my new nursery. I can´t wait for her to arrive from norway.
