One World One Heart

Welcome to Maminka Girl Studio where I make dolls and other little things with all that vintage fabric and paper I've been saving all these years. Last year I had so much fun visiting blogs all over the world that I vowed to participate with my own little give-away this year. This is a wee Irish lass handmade by me using all vintage materials. She has a hand painted face and stands just 5 inches tall.

If you would like a chance to win her, leave me a comment and be sure to leave your blog address. Best of luck to you and come visit me again soon!
