Framed Friday 4 with a giveaway!

One more round of Framed Friday, the letter is H and this time Marcia prepared a little surprise: a giveaway! Hurry up and jump to Learning Mama to learn how to win a great gift!

My choice today is the Goddess Hestia. She is the Greek goddess of the hearth fire, hence presiding over domestic life. She is the eldest sister of Zeus and the oldest daughter of Rhea and Cronus. The Romans called her Vesta and even built her a temple at their Forum. I'm making a little Witch Kitchen to protect/decorate my kitchen, and I find this Goddess very similar in intention.

This sweet Hestia, from the Dancing Goddess Dolls is really charming, and has singular symbols to increase her protective powers, such as a little broom and a miniature clothespin, plus a tiny goddess in her necklace. She's available in two more sizes, including a pocket doll, and you can order different cloth patterns according to your wishes. It's a very appropriate "tool" to have near the stove to help keeping your meals always delicious! :)

I always recommend visiting this site, because the artist is constantly renewing her catalog of cloth goddesses and other articles, and is simply refreshing to admire her beautiful talent.

Don't forget, if you want to see more cool products reviews and want to win a special giveaway, go to Learning Mama this week!

Oh, I love Hestia! She is my kitchen deity. I will have to check out these dolls. I collect kitchen witches, so this would be an absolutely perfect addition to my kitchen!

Thanks for sharing!
