Welcome to our fourth large Windfall Doll giveaway!
Four times a year we will be holding a seasonal giveaway of one of our larger Waldorf Inspired Dolls. Each monthly doll's name will be inspired by the month in which they were created.
For our Summer Windfall Doll giveaway, we would like to introduce you to baby Jules
::Jules:: Meaning youthful.
::A bit about Jules::
Jules is my little love. She began as the dream of Emelia's but soon stole my own heart. You can learn more about her beginnings here.
I gave her the name Jules because she is just that...youthful. She is a baby all of 10 months old and is 16 inches long. She loves to be snuggled and take naps. Just like me! (No wonder I love her so and named her after my nickname.) I love to swaddle her up and rock her until she is close to slumber. Then I place her in her crib and tiptoe out to get some work done.
But as we all know, naps with other little ones in the house can be fleeting. My little nephew Hayden spotted a sleeping little Jules in HIS crib and he just had to rattle her awake.
And POP, those eyes did open!
She unswaddled herself and sat up, ready to be plucked from her slumber to play with the other baby.
Apparently I took too long to get her out, because the next thing that I knew, she was climbing her way to freedom!
What a little monkey girl.
I saved her just in time, sat her on a blanket and gathered some toys for her to play with. Borrowed from her little cousin.
She's new to sitting and almost as soon as I propped her up, she flopped back to kick her legs in the air and giggle.
:: The details::
Jules has the pinkest little smile that she wears all the time, she is a happy lark. Her eyes are a bright green, just like the leaves that have popped in the trees.
Her wardrobe is handmade as always. Complete with a bonnet, crocheted slippers, a shirt with a pocket, and her Emelia-insisted-on bloomers.
The bloomers are her favorite, she is constantly doing her head feet tripod pose ( like her cousin Hayden showed her ) trying to show them off!
Her slippers are sure to stay in place with a white yarn bow.
Her bonnet is made of linen and is lined with the same fabric as her bloomers. The lace is upcycled from a pillowcase and the linen is from a thrifted napkin.
The last detail of little Jules trousseau is her toy. A handmade birdie that Laura and I made long ago when we made mobiles for our times selling at the Farmer's Markets. She has adopted it as her own and it will be making the journey with her to her new home.
If you are interested in having Jules join your family, please let us know what it is that you love about her and how you will make her a part of your family.

Each comment counts as one entry
It saddens us to mention this, but we just want to be clear. Please do not comment if you are planning on selling this doll. She is meant to go to a family who will appreciate her. It would break our hearts if she was given to someone with poor intentions.
