Hip, hip, hooray!!!!The riddle is solved! Ilona wrote the "magic words" CATHERINE MUNIERE.
You can't just buy a doll from Catherine. You have to be lucky. There are so many people interested in her dolls, she gives out numbered lots. If you are happy to get one of these lots, you can buy a doll. The number 1 can choose first, number 2 as second and so on. I had number 16. The little boy I'd liked most was gone, but she was my second choice.
Now you know, what I wanted as solution to the riddle:) If I had told you, that I want to know the artist, it would have been much to easy.
But I haven't told you more. This was a riddle with WINNERS!
Everyone (except Ilona!:)) who participated and wrote guesses has won a 10% voucher for my ETSY shop. It will be valid till the end of this year for one purchase. Just write me before you buy something and I'll send you the voucher.
But why won't Ilona get this? She'll get something special and can tell me for which of her scenes she'd like to have a miniature.
Have a wonderful day
