♥ Just wanted to share something ♥

There are times that I fall head over heels in love with a doll as I'm making them and I find myself not *really* wanting to part with them. Instead I (secretly) think about keeping them in my own little corner of the world.
And when you get an email from someone wanting to purchase that special creation that you've grown particularly fond of, you can only hope they will love the special one as much as you do.
Recently, I sold Zeb the Punkin Picker on the TDIPT Merc. I admit, I was thrilled when I read who had sent the request to purchase him - M is a repeat customer who has impressed me with both her honesty and sincerity.
I just got an email this morning from her and it touched me in such a way, I felt it was appropriate to share. It goes like this:

Zeb arrived in fine fashion this morning! He truly is wonderful and has taken up a spot on my outdoor coffee table saying something about all the potted flowers under the wrap around porch needed protecting from all the birds living in the prim birdhouses. I tried to assure him that the houses were not occupied and that he need not work until fall, however he was somewhat persistent and indicated he thought the job he was sent for started immediately and we all know you can't reason with a scarecrow!
Thank you so much Karen! Zeb is perfect!

Thank you M ... I know Zeb will have a full and fruitful life under your roof!

I can see why he was so hard to part with! I just love him! It does sound like he has found a good home of kindred spirits, where they truly appreciate his work ethic :)

Blessings, Patti

I loved Zeb from the minute I saw him! Did she say "outdoor" table?! That Zeb could be kidnapped, ya know!

As much as I loved Zeb, I must say Blair is my all-time favorite of yours so far - how cute is she!?

You are talented as you are sweet, Cookie!

Wow, Isn't it so wonderful, first of all that you put so much of yourself in your creations and second, what a blessing that someone else appreciates it as much as you do.
Great post
