My first year blog anniversary is coming up on March 6th so I thought what better time than now to have a giveaway. Since there are also two holidays coming up I took that into consideration for deciding on a prize. 

Easter wins hands down for being the most popular holiday of the two for decorating so I needed to come up with something that would be special and unique and would be something you could use to decorate with for Easter. I say special and unique because nothing short of that will do as a prize to be given to one of my fabulous followers.

Trying to decide on something that is special and unique is a lot harder to do than you may think. Well, it is for me anyway. I'd thought about making some sort of Easter eggs but have been seeing them pop up here and there on some of your blogs so I ruled them out. Not quite unique enough.

I then thought about making a pattern for a one of a kind bunny doll and that sounded like it just might be the perfect prize. After some trials and errors this is what I ended up making.

This is little Miss Kanin (Danish for rabbit) who is out for a stroll. She's carrying a basket for the wild flowers that bloom in the field near her hutch.

She is wearing a hand stitched cotton dress of dusty rose with small blue flowers that is topped with a white cotton apron trimmed with pink and blue stitching.

She is made of muslin and is button jointed so she can be posed either sitting or standing.  She has embroideried features and stands  8 1/2" tall. 

Here are the rules for entering this giveaway.

1.  Be a follower of this blog.

2. Leave me a message on this post telling me you would like a chance of winning this doll.

That's it!! Nothing more than these two requirements.  I will have the drawing for the winner on March 6th.

What could be easier? Since there is still a little over two weeks until my anniversary I'm bound to be making something else to add to my giveaway. I'm not sure yet what it will be, guess we'll just have to wait and see.

As always, thanks for stopping by.
