UPDATED WITH A WINNER – Congratulations Deb M – please check your inbox.

One of the things I am really looking forward to this summer is introducing you to a new Etsy shop every Friday! I LOVE being able to support small businesses and the Etsy shop owners I have had the pleasure of dealing with are all so creative, talented and professional!!  On to the giveaway…

Giveaway for Nautical Romper and Tote Set from Aunt Sissy's Original

Nellie is modeling this week’s giveaway outfit that one lucky reader will win. Lora from Aunt Sissy Originals has sewn this sassy, nautical inspired romper and added a red polka dot belt. She made a coordinating tote bag and I just happened to have a new pair of blue doll shoes on hand, so I have included them in the giveaway, too.

Here is a close up of the fabric – I just LOVE the combination of this shade of blue with red. All of the stitching and finishing on this outfit are just so perfect – again, I am always so impressed at how talented our doll community is!!  Your doll will love this outfit – its perfect for picnics, 4th of July and going to the beach!


One lucky reader will win a nautical inspired romper with belt, tote and blue tennis shoes for 18″ dolls from Etsy shop Aunt Sissy Originals.
