Ok so I have problems getting the photos where I want them....brother!!
The top photo is the one recv'd from Hope,I named her Whimsical Winnie. The second photo is the doll I sent to Hope. Her name is Hearts Galore!

On one of our art groups we had a Valentine Swap. My swap partner was Hope Jones Griffin from the UK. We had a ball emailing and getting to know each other. I am posting a picture of the doll I made for her, Hearts Galore is her name. Tomorrow I will get a picture of the doll Hope sent to me. I decided to name her Whimsical Winnie ! Not only did I receive the doll from Hope, but so many other goodies. Hope went well beyond the requirements for this Swap. I am thankful to her. She included a pair of UK anklets ( I have traveled often through the UK) , a delish chocolate candy bar ....a BIG one , a small scrapbook she made, a red felt birdie for my valentine tree and a small vintage embroidered heart that also nestles nicely in my Valentine Alpine Tree. It was all so much fun and to meet another fellow artist that loves dolls....was wonderful!
