Julie Adore Handmade Doll Giveaway

Peek-a-boo Lou! How are you?
What did you say? You want to play?
Well, maybe we can find you a new friend today....

Lou's a country girl, she comes from the mountains, loves fruit and flowers and is a sweet, good-natured soul. She isn't plain though, she likes to dress up with her blue popcorn necklace and has a twinkle in her eye. Yes, there's a little sparkle, perhaps a dream of travelling to distant lands?

Paris-based Julie Adore is one of my favourite artists/crafters/makers (probably because she's Russian).  She sews, knits, crochets and draws, all with the same enthusiasm and talent. I have featured her quirky drawings before and today I am delighted to offer you the chance to win 'Lou', one of the original, endearing dolls that she hand-makes to order. 

So, if you would like a chance to win Lou (open to international readers):
1) Leave me a comment below (make sure to leave me an email address)  
2) Spread the news via twitter, facebook or any other means and I'll pop two names in the hat (make sure you let me know).

This giveaway runs until Wednesday 14th September at 6 pm, CET
I will announce the winner the same evening.

Si vous voulez une chance de gagner Lou, une magnifique petite poupée créée sur-mesure par Julie Adore, laissez-moi une commentaire. Vous avez deux chances si vous relayez l'info par twitter, facebook, ou tout autre réseau.  N'oubliez pas de me laisser un email.   
Le jeu s'arrête Le Mercredi 14 Septembre à 18 heures CET.

J'annoncerai le gagnant/la gagnante le soir même.

Merci, et bonne chance !
