Meet Missis Peony! Cheeky and wit. Little red haired young lady.
That is my first doll made with a new pattern for a little 7″ pocket doll. Standing 6,4 inches (17cm), made with organic cotton velour and clean organic wool, soft and fluffy mohair for her ginger hair, blue polka dotted fabric flower with sparkling chech glass beads in its middle, plant dyed long mohair scarf around her neck. She feels so sof and cuddly, would just take her to everywhere! : ) Missis Peony is now available here and here.
Carefully packaging a Waldorf Doll – here is a tiny Star Child with fierce red hair, bringing his lucky sea shell star to a little one. Wrapped in layers of finest shiny yellow silk paper. Decorated with fresh lavender buds from my garden, laid over a filigree paper doily. There are lots of tiny and sweet details to be recovered there. Like a tiny lavender buds sachet with a tiny Atelier Lavendel logo on it, some sweets here – and a little handmade strawberry there… All this is going to make you smile while opening the package. I do hope so! : )
Look, what came with the post these days! Tresures: a lovely purse by oktopurse (Chrismass is coming! : ) ), wonderfull soft doll hair yarn by Little Oak and oh so soft polka dotted cotton flannel fabric for my new project. Wishing a sunny inspiring afternoon to you!
Doll making classes. A wonderful experience to everyone loving dolls. That is it what the doll making class with Ineke Gray in Amsterdam, whom I visited the end of June, had been to me. Loving and creative atmosphere, hand – dyed fabrics and sun – lit studio, pastel colours everywhere and sweet little details all over, great experience and skills, formidable teaching, never too tired to give you an encouraging smile. That delicious herbs tee served in the antique capes, this violin sounds in the backroom… Unforgettable… In short: amazing, absolutely amazing. I would recommend it to everyone: a day you´ll never forget. And the doll you make! A dream! Lovely size, nice face, these cheeky pig tails! I love her! And her friend, the tiny Gnome (made by Ineke), even more . Both of them, the dolly and the Gnome are sitting just now on my working desk. They whisper. As long as the children of the house are not there, they have time to get some ideas of what to do this sunny afternoon.
Wishing you a nice and creative afternoon too!
Every year our Waldorf Steiner School is welcoming the coming summer with a large bonfire, the Johannifeuer, on the first Friday after the Midsummer Eve. This time we added our small fire to this grate gathering. Just small and cozy, just us : ) .
On the same day a little strawberry gnome came to live in my studio.
With his pointed hat and sparkling blue eyes, his strawberry necklace on (just for luck!), he is looking for an adventure. Well!… we will see!…
This sweet gnome is now available here and here.
