Rainbow Gnomes

 These little rainbow gnomes just make me happy!
They were a custom order I recently finished.
I think they are just too cute.

Here they all held hands and laid in a half circle.

 Then they started to dance around one of my mushrooms......

.....this way and that.
How can you not love them????
I had a really hard time sending them on their way all the way to Australia 
but I have a feeling like they will have a great time down under.  :0)

I can assure you that I will have to make more of these in the future.
I just LOVE these little guys too much!

A play set

A few weeks ago I was in Germany to visit my mom who had a hip replacement. 
 I brought her a gnome, mushroom and leaves as a gift and she added it 
to her nature corner on her piano.
I really love those things together and I thought 
I will offer a similar set in my shop .

Well and here it is.
1 gnome (about 3.5 inches)
2 mushrooms (about 7 inches)
3 leaves, maple, oak and beech shaped 
(about 5 and 6 inches long from top to end of the stem)

Little Celeste loves playing with the leaves and mushroom.
They are just the perfect size for her.

 I'm still working on her clothing, but she has already a warm jacket since it's getting chilly 
in this part of the world.

Next will be matching warm shoes and then we start on the rest of her wardrobe .
Stay tuned.....

Fall leaves and mushrooms

It's fall in these parts of the world and I thought it would be nice to make some 
leaves and mushrooms for a nature table or just as a natural toy

They are soft and made with all natural materials.
Safe for children of all ages.
I  have 2 sets in my Etsy store available right now.

A custom girl...

 Look what I made lately.
This little lady was a custom order and I had so much fun working on her.
Look at all the cool clothes she has.

 This is the other side of her reversible dress.

 She got a shirt and skirt

and some red pants.

 She also has a pair of comfy PJ's.

 Oh and since fall is not far away here in Canada a cozy jacket and hat will keep her warm

 I think she is all ready to go and meet her new friend in Montreal now.

Dolly home for a spa treatment

A while back I got an email from a lovely customer of mine from a few years ago, 
if I would be able to do a little repair on Dolly (Fiona) and maybe give her a spa treatment.
I could not wait to see her again!!!
I have to admit that when she arrived I was moved to tears. 
Seeing a doll of mine being sooo loved by two little girl makes me unbelievably happy!!
What bigger reward can a doll maker get then knowing one of your creations , that you made with your own hands is not sitting on a shelf, but loved and part of children's lives.

Dolly got a nice long soak in some warm water with some Woolite.
She really enjoyed it!

Then it was time to come out of the water and get dried .
First I squeezed most of the water out of her and then got her all snuggled up in a large towel .
She had a warm spot in the sun for a couple of days until she was all dried out.

Then it was time for the some styling and a new dress for the journey home .

Doesn't she look cute with her buns and in her new dress ?

Soon it was time to get her ready to go back home to her girls. 
They were missing her already and her stay with me was much longer then planned.
I'm still in love with this sweetie and really had a hard time letting her go again.

What a wonderful experience this has been for me.
I hope she has many more adventures in the futures!

New Owls and Bunnies in the shop

I just listed 2 new bunnies and 2 new owl in my shop.
Here is the link to my shop.
This time they are all red brown.....

 I love the color combination of this bunny. 
The light green of the cotton velour with the red brown terry and orange green and grey fabric is just wonderful.
The birdy fabric of this owls wings work great with the red brown as well.

 This bunny's cotton fabric has the same red brown and turquoise colors as the terry and velour.
Perfect match!
And then there is the this cutie. 
Green goes so well with the red brown and white terry.

This week.....owls and bunnies

This week I'm working on these owls and bunnies.
I like to do a bunch of the same colors together so that I don't have to switch treads all the time.
I hope to have them done by the end of the week, depending how I work in my day job .

I might do some more in different colors after, but I'm not sure yet.
Some other projects are stuck in my head for already way too long....
I keep you posted.
Here you can see  some pictures from this weekends walk in the woods.
