internet friends, meet phoebe.
she is squishy soft and crafted from european wool felt and the cheeriest cotton prints. phoebes would love nothing more than to be traipsed about the house in small arms, or to perch quiet-like on a dresser top and enjoy the thoughtful company of you.
[bonus points if you live in a stone tudor with secret passageways, or a sea-bright cottage, or anywhere within shouting distance of london. she has a soft spot for such things.]
if you'd like phoebe to come live at your place (or be gifted to someone dear to you), please tell me in the comments below the name of your best friend from childhood. [if you'd like an extra shot at winning, tweet or facebook this post, and leave me a second comment saying you did so.]
entries will close on thursday, february 3rd at 11:59pm est. a winner will be drawn at random and will likely be announced sometime friday.
bonne chance, and happy monday, friends!
we have a winner: christa, who wrote, In my early elementary years Cori and Tami were my best friends...and nearly 30 years and 10 kids among us later and with the whole country currently dividing us, they're still my closest friends.
a warm and hearty thank you to all who dropped your names in. i can't tell you how lovely it was to hear about your childhood besties. we're a blessed bunch to have grown up alongside such good and zany folk.
