One World One Heart

2nd update!-I have no idea how to close comments-I have looked and cannot work it out. So-what I will do is look at this tomorrow lunchtime when I get home from work-thus extending the time a little. Anyone who has left a comment by then will be included in the drawing. So-new cut off is 12.2.09 12 noon GMT.
11th February update-I will close comments at midnight GMT 11th February so hurry! Thanks for everyone who left such sweet and encouraging comments. I have really enjoyed OWOH-thanks Lisa!Photo I am taking part in One World One Heart. It is an event hosted by Lisa here. It sounds like a wonderful way of getting to know even more great bloggers out there. Click on the logo to find out more and to see the list of participants.

Who is elligible: Everyone
How do I enter: Please leave a comment on this post between now & midnight Wednesday, February 11th. Everyone that leaves a comment will be entered into a random drawing one time (not one time per comment).
Winners will be announced on Thursday, February 12th

Below are my little giveaways (one word or two?!) Here is the first, for my first name from the draw. She is a paper doll who likes to hang around your house looking pretty. She will be happy in most locations-desk, wall, tucked into a picture frame-anywhere really! She has a couple of wishes-to travel in time and to bi-locate. Or are they my wishes?! Bi-location, if safe, would certainly be great! Where would you go if you could travel in time? I love finding out the answer to that question! I would go to the court of Henry VIII. This doll's name is Feyi. This is one of my tiny paper dolls who also likes to be perched anywhere. As you can see she is having fun playing on the cotton reels. She needs to be named by whoever wins her! (Number two from the draw)This is her little friend, also in need of a name by her new owner. (Number three!)I am off to email my link to Lisa now. Then I am going visiting!

Mmm. I would _definitely_ be in Elizabeth I's court. We might would cross paths our own selves, then! LOL. Or Tin Pan Alley and/or Hollywood before the Crash of '29.
A LOT going on both places and times, artwise, culturally, etc.

Well, Liza is a good name for that second redheaded doll, a namesake for Good Queen Bess.
I have a little shrine started up with goodies and dolls etc I have from blog friends. Yours fit right in... Sweeeet!
Take care.
