Ooh La La Paris Giveaway

                                Welcome to my Paris Party

I would like to thank Anita at Castles Crowns and Cottages for making it possible to participate in this fun blog event .


I have been pondering for several days as to what this blog post would be about.

It came to me like a flash...since my name is Dessa Rae which is French, and I make little French dolls, it would only be fitting that I introduce you to my little French girls.  * These Pixie Moppets have all been sold *

I chose the name “Pixie Moppets” for the doll line because of the pixie like face and their diminutive stature...a mere 3 ½ inches on a good day.

I decided to name them French names (of course), starting with the letter A and continuing down the alphabet.

My first little darling is Ava, a sweet and shy little moppet~

Next is Briggitte, a little Moppet with a bit of an attitude~

Now we go on to Chloe, a demure little imp..

Lets not forget Desiree, my sweet little name sake~

Last but not least is Elle, smart and inquisitive she is...


                               And now for the best part

                                          My Giveaway

Please let me introduce to you Francoise. She is a sweet little Moppet who is so excited to come and live with you.

You can win Francoise simply by following me, and leaving me a comment in this post.

I will be randomly drawing a name at 12:00 A.M. on June 15th 2012.

I will pay for postage anywhere worldwide.

This is my way of thanking all of my followers and my future followers.

And now as a final thought, I will leave you with the  the Can favorite dance. I remember doing this dance when I was just a little girl and wishing I lived in France...

  Thank you so much for visiting....

  30. Hello Dessa Rae,

    SO nice to meet you! I am having a ball with this link Party, aren't you? That Francoise is so sweet. If I was the recipient, I think I would give it to my niece who is due with her first baby (girl) in October. She has dark hair and it reminds me of her. Wow...the detail that you put into these. How do you do that with them being so tiny?

    Thanks for stopping by my place. I am glad you enjoyed my little guy and his Kooky Chicken friend. I do a series of different posts with the two of them from time to time. If you care to look at more, you can click on "Kooky Chicken" under the "label" section.

    Have a good evening!
    Heidi (hi-d @ hi-d's place)
