I've agreed with Marie to make her a doll in exchange of her magnificent nativity set, that I would offer to my Catholic in-laws. I proposed to make a bigger doll so I can get a Winter King as well. But if you know Marie, you know that she is a sweet, generous being. So even when I came back at her telling that the doll I made was too expensive to ship to NZ (and her saying okay) she sent all the same. AND more then I asked!
The Winter King came with two gorgeous Winter Ladies ( and beautiful postcards of her work). I can't tell you how much they have been cherished since they entered our home. Mariann and Merrick love them so dearly, they are the new stars of their play. And they are so well made, they will last entire childhoods. I love them, a lot.
Thank you, Marie! Check you mail soon, you will have a little something from us as well!
