Fall Equinox Give-Away!

We love the fall season!
The cooler temps, putting our gardens to rest,
and the long shadows that dance across our lawns.
We are so blessed... and want to share that blessing!

What better way... than a give-away!

And so "The Guardian of Hope" featured on page 65
of the fall issue of Art Doll Quarterly...
will find a new home on Friday, September 23, 2011...
the first day of Autumn! 
Just drop us a note, here at Woodstown Whimsies...
and we'll put your name in the hat for the drawing!
Blessings... Daryle & Katie

  2. What a generous thing to do. I would love to give this to my daughter Elizabeth who loves birds. Blessings to you and Katie.

  3. Hi Daryle and Katie...Hopefully your blog will let me leave you a message to say how great of an artist you are. I am just amazed, at or mesmerize with your creation. It would be such an honor to have one of your art creation.

  4. What a thoughtful, kind-hearted gesture, Daryle and Katie! I am such a huge fan of all of your art pieces. Please, please add my name to the hat for the beautiful Guardian of Hope. -- Cathy

  6. What a generous giveaway. Please put my name in your drawing. The Guardian of Hope would have a place of honor in my home if I were to be lucky enough to win.

  7. ...'Tis the rare soul who knows the gift is in the giving. So, I "HOPE" you give her to me!! Just kidding. But she does look a wee bit like my sainted Irish Mother, may God rest her soul. Just in the face, though ;)

  18. Daryle & Katie, I have long been an admirer of your work. Guardian of Hope is a beautiful manifestation of the sentiment. Please put my name in the hat, I would be so happy to give her a new home.

  19. though I am way late for the give away, I wanted to write and say I love this Guardian of Hope. I work at Texas Oncology in Round Rock, Texas and I have really enjoyed seeing a lot of your dolls that you have made with the raw emotion you are feeling because of your journey. I came to your site because I am wanting to learn how to work with paper clay. I wanted to share with you that I made a doll that was displayed on a table that carried a message of HOPE for the patients. One patient came up to the doll and said my mom would love that and started crying, ok course I had to give it to her. It was displayed for 6 years before that time. Now I need to make a new one and I have been looking at yours and trying to come up with a good message for a new one.
