Look at these beautiful dolls made by local artist Ashley Sprinkle-Tappan!  She has made the cute red headed one in the middle available as a giveaway to my readers.  “Shannon” seen below would make a perfect gift for your favorite young one.

Ashley’s website found here offers many other beautiful handmade items.  She’s offering all of the readers a chance to win the doll AND a 10% off to all who mention the code HOLIDAY when placing their orders.

More about Ashley, the lovely dolls, and her site:

I'm a stay at home mama who loves to make lots of things. I like for my two little girls to have toys that are made with natural materials and are not mass produced as much as possible, and that means doing a lot of research and making a lot percentage of them. I'm so pleased to be able to offer these items to other mamas their little ones too.

These Waldorf dolls are made with a soft jersey cotton and are stuffed with cleaned and carded wool. Their faces are needle and thread shaped under the jersey so they are completely soft and lovable.

Their hair is a crocheted strand sewn into the head (which I like the shape of better than a crocheted cap) and each strand of hair is sewn into the crocheted strand. They have several kinds of yarn for hair, which allows for better wear. The clothing is made from quilting cotton. Wool holds heat and is wonderful to hold and carry, which makes it a nice snuggly friend.

All of Gabrielle’s followers will receive a 10% discount off dolls-just mention HOLIDAY when sending your orders to aksprinkle@gmail.com.

Instructions on what's needed to order are on my blog, www.mybluepocketgirls.blogspot.com, as well as lots of things to look at! Thanks for your interest!

  6. Her smocked dresses are really beautiful but the thing that caught my eye was the little boy doll sitting in amongst the girl dolls. It's really difficult to find boy dolls.

  9. I love Lincoln's blanket on her page! What an amazing work of love. I love the slings, too. Wouldn't know what to do without my slings. I love the tutu T-shirt dresses, too. Clever. My girls would like them!

    I almost bought a Waldorf handmade doll from Etsy for my little girl who just turned one, for her birthday, but didn't want to spend the money. Thanks for the chance to win one!

  24. Here's what I think about Ashley's site:

    It would be amazing for the readers to see a formatted blog post that would show Item Picture, Item Description, Item Price, etc etc

    She could also setup a Google Form to embed in her posts for the customer to complete when wanting to place an order.

    I love all the items she has posted and truly wish I could purchase several of them that I see. Thanks for the awesome chance to win!
