A parcel arrived from across the Atlantic ocean. The contents were so delightful that I have decided to dedicate a post to each of them.
A few weeks ago I responded to a post by the wonderfully talented Maya of Maya*made.
How lucky was I to find that I was one of the winners in her giveaway.
Whats more that I could choose to have a custom made gift !
I just loved the beautiful stone dolls that Maya had painted. You can find them here and here.
This little doll made it's way to live in Ireland.
I am so grateful for this gift for so many reasons.
I love the fact that this stone is part of another continent.
I enjoy thinking of the history that surrounds stone dolls and like to think about the children who might have played with them in the past and the mothers who made them for their children.
I delight in the fact that someone so gifted took time to find, select, design and paint her for me !
I think the pattern on her dress is beautiful and I have just the place to keep her so that I can catch a glimpse of her everyday.
To me this doll is a symbol of kindness and generosity and the goodness that exists with in the blogging community.
Thank you Maya she will be loved.
