Hi there,

You have lots of lovely items in your Etsy store, but my favorite two ones (sorry, I had to choose two ones) are the ice cream cone ornament and the candy corn ornament. So cute! :)

Greetings from Munich,

It's so hard to choose Melanie! I really love them all, but that unicorn ornament is just so adorable...and your chick photo holder...and I could go on and on! They are all so cute!

ezeldabeth said...

you do such amazing work! i love so much...but i have to say the princesses because my daughter (also 3) is in love with them -- if i won, i would use it as an incentive for potty training (i really am starting to believe that she will go to kindergarten in diapers) ... she is crazy for them and it just might work!
