Congratulations, Simone darling! We are thrilled for you and your girls...the Tollipop goody bag will soon be on its way, filled with an assortment of sweet originals and darling prints. How fun. I hope you will enjoy it! Please let's get in touch soon to exchange mailing addresses and the like.
To everyone else...thank you for playing along! Thank you for your enthusiasm and support of this giveaway. I so appreciated your help in sharing Tollipop a little further out into the world. We will definitely do a goody bag giveaway again.
In lieu of the prize, I wish you a table in a cozy corner of your favorite restaurant. The food is exquisite, there is lovely music in the background, and you are with someone you care for deeply. You are seated by a window which looks out onto a darkened street filled with old, narrow shops: a bakery, a used bookstore, a tiny market, a curio shoppe which sells artifacts from all over the world. After dinner, you and your friend venture into this shop. It is dusty, odd, and filled with wonders...like an attic belonging to a mysterious great aunt.
Tucked away behind a jade carving of a miniature Taj Mahal, you notice a box tied with a faded ribbon. It is small and practically insignificant, yet you can't help yourself from picking it up. The box opens to reveal a smooth, round pearl. As you marvel over its milky luminescence, a live scene reveals itself upon the surface of the pearl. It is somewhere marvelous, somewhere exotic, somewhere you have always wanted to be. And as you gaze upon the pearl, you are suddenly transported through time and space to the scene you are observing.
Your friend may come with you, too.
And to return? Simply place the pearl in your other hand and gaze upon a scene from home, which will readily reveal itself to you.
It's really that easy, darling.
