I've decided that today is Unsolicited Advertisement Day on And Sometimes Tea. Oh, it's not that there isn't some interesting news and politics and so forth out there; there is, and I hope to resume posting on these topics soon. But I'm still a bit under the weather, and since my posts will be brief I thought this was a good time to talk about a couple of companies and products I like.
The first one made our Easter day so special, despite my illness. I had ordered three wooden saint dolls from Catholic Folk Toys for my girls; each girl was given a doll of her confirmation patron saint. Kitten's was St. Francis, who can be seen here; Bookgirl's was St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, and Hatchick's was St. Joan of Arc, both of which were custom doll orders. At $15.00 apiece the dolls were an excellent value, and I couldn't have been more delighted with how adorable they all were! They arrived in good time before Easter and came in little fabric bags, perfect to be tucked in among the candy.
Tammy, the wonderful lady who makes the toys, kept me informed via email and was easy to contact when I couldn't quite figure out the custom order process; the whole experience of ordering from Catholic Folk Toys was an excellent one, and I hope to order from them again in the future.
If you are looking for a gift for a special occasion such as a First Communion or Confirmation, please consider ordering from Catholic Folk Toys!
