Ten lucky readers will win one of these fabulous one-of-a-kind angel ornaments in this early Christmas giveaway! A group of talented etsians have created these ten ornaments using antique porcelain dolls dating from 1850-1900. The dolls (and piles of others) were excavated from around closed doll factories in Thuringia, Germany, and just look at them now! Wow!
