Marathon! October Winner! November Give A Way!

November Give Away

Hello everyone and thanks to all my followers for leaving comments and reading my blog.  You are the best of the best helping me keep my self- respect! I know my minis are not the best in the world, but, as a cancer survivor, a lovely quote  from Sharon Olds is inspirational:  "Writing or making anything—a poem, a bird feeder, a chocolate cake—has self-respect in it. You're working. You're trying. You're not lying down on the ground, having given up."                                                                               You are my motivation for posting and offering give a ways.   See details below on how to win this fabulous 1 inch scale dress from my Jared Collection.  It is made on a hanger (cannot be worn by doll) from gorgeous paper backed fabric.  How did I create this tiny beauty?  According to Martha Beck's quote below this is how:  
"In the moments I get it right, every step I take seems to be matched by a universal mystery, which obligingly, incredibly, creates what I can't."      

Favorite Daughter & Hubby
My favorite daughter never gave up as she finished her very first half marathon (13.1 miles)!  The same marathon I was training for two years ago and never finished due to health issues.  October being National Breast Cancer Month, I know she crossed that finish line for me and a ton of survivors, grinning like she had found a healthy cure for the whole world to be the best it can be and especially for hubby and their boys.

"Act as a master of your life by putting your health, well-being and happiness first."  Marianna Olszewski
