So cool! One reader will win a $75 gift certificate to Craftsbury Kids. Craftsbury specializes in beautiful, handmade merchandise for children. The majority of the treasures they sell are made in the USA and Europe.
So, what would you do if you won the gift certificate? I can't enter, but it sure is fun to dream...
Maybe I'd get Linnea a scary monster. Glenny Monster is handmade in Oregon by doll maker Casie Nipper from cotton fabric and fleece. And, it's good to know that he is machine washable.
Glenny the Plush Monster ($30)
Bird-loving Arielle would love to have her name in "birds."
Storybook Bird Banner ($18.00 per letter)
The same American artist, Irma Niekum, makes absolutely stunning mobiles ($82.00), dolls and party favors.
Tooth Fairy Doll ($28.00)
Or maybe a pretty pendant ($18.00) and a sweet ruffled petticoat ($49.00)
I love petticoats.
I think this is my absolute favorite. Arielle and Linnea love playing birthday party. The 10" tiered cake comes with two sets of trims, four roses, and a birthday candle so kids can decorate the cake themselves. Everything is made of hand or machine sewn out of quality wool blend felt. It comes with a pretty box with ribbon on top. What little girl wouldn't love it?
Felt Cake Decorating Kit ($45.00)
A cute-as-can-be gingerbread house is also available.
