St. Nicholas Doll Giveaway!

I have been given the opportunity to host another giveaway, in honor of the upcoming feast of St. Nicholas! This giveaway is for a beautiful hand painted St. Nicholas Doll from St. Luke's Brush!

St. Nicholas is a 3.5 inch wooden peg doll hand painted with non-toxic acrylic paints and sealed to preserve this keepsake toy.

Head on over and check out the Etsy Shop, St. Luke's Brush, and then come back and leave a comment here at Shower of Roses for your chance to win this little hand painted doll!  All these beautiful little saints would make wonderful stocking stuffers!!

Comments will be open until Midnight on Monday, December 6th, the feast of St. Nicholas. The winner will be chosen with a random number generator and announced on Tuesday, December 7th. Be sure to leave your email address, or have it linked in your profile, so that I am able to contact you.

"God of joy and cheer, we thank you for your servant, the good bishop Nicholas. In loving the poor, he showed us your kindness; in caring for your children, he revealed your love. Make us thoughtful without need of reward so that we, too, may be good followers of Jesus."
~ From St. Nikola an der Donau, Austria

  9. Oh, I love these! I was actually checking them out last night, Lacy had a discount code on Monday. I love the nativity set. I thought they'd be great for the boys to use during Mass.

    I even thought of keeping them up and only letting them use them during Mass. I need something, keeping three boys all under four quiet during Mass is no small feat!

    Have a blessed Advent -- Kelly

    P.S. I feel like your more disorganized twin on the East Coast. We're presently awaiting our sixth, a girl. That brings our line-up to: boy (8), boy (6), girl (4), girl (3), boy (almost 2), girl (due March). Sound familiar? : )

  71. I love the Story Book Nativity Set. It is neat with the storage built into the box. I would really consider getting that for my little ones to be able to touch (unlike the breakable one we have now) Thanks for doing the giveaway.

  74. We would love to be part of the give-away. My kids would really appreciate this. I don't have enough spiritual christmas decorations as we have always been at my MIL for Christmas. This is about to change, sadly. I could really use a manger seen too! I also like the Saint Francis. My son was Saint Francis for All Saints Day at school - he is his favorite.

    Thanks for the chance!
