This pretty hand painted mermaid is so whimsical and sweet. My daughter is sure to fall in love with its unique look and I know that it is going to look great sitting on her bed with her other favorite dolls and plush animals. Fast shipping and an adorable print of one of the artists art works as a free Christmas gift with handwritten note made this product a five star winner in my book. I will definitely be watching for new additions to her product line and I can have confidence in their shipping methods, eye for detail and thoughtfulness.
