What's In A Name?

Yes, searching for yourself on Google is fun, but I've got a better game. Searching for yourself on etsy.com! I'm not sure anyone has ever compiled a collection of Astrids before... but the 8 I've found make quite an exceptional little group!

Here they are, Astrids of the world:

1. Astrid is a fairy with attitude! Oh yes! Felt DiDi Doll by FeltLikeStitchin

2. Astrid is 12.5" long not including her 2.5" antennae. (Eeek, I thought I kept them hidden!) Astrid Agnew Doll by beecah
Also note that Astrid dislikes: cruelty to animals, mean people and excessively loud music! How true.

3. Astrid: #1 (What an ego boost...!) Print 1 of the Hundred Dresses Project by tollipop

4. Clearance Astrid (sometimes we all go on sale). Rag Doll by HarrietsHaven

5. Dancing Donkey Astrid (yes, that just about sums up my dancing skill!) by wendyclarke

6. Astrid is ready to be a mighty special friend to someone. Awww! Blue Kitty by BertieBeanflower


8. Pretty Astrid! Print by JulieFillo

Astrid likes to hear about Astrid! Thanks to these artists for putting my name to such good use!
(And my apologies for such a self-centred post! I'll only do it this once, I promise!)
