FINALLY SPRING

FINALLY SPRING
Welcome!

This is the place where you can view my dolls and creations.
Some are for sale and some have already found new homes!

My dolls and other creations are made from fabric or a combination of fabric and paper clay.

They are one of a kind....using antique, vintage and new fabrics and notions.

Each doll is named, signed and dated.
They are for decorative use only and not meant to be toys!

If there are flaws in the fabric I will disclose them to the best of my knowledge.
Please accept small imperfections as part of their charm!

Thank you for visiting!

birch bark.
Very unusual.

a train, and a cuddly teddy.
From his waist hangs a little vintage block and
Noah's Ark, which hubby cuts out, and I paint.
 
 
I made him this little dolly from paper-clay
to take to good little girls.
 
 
A little sheep accompanies him on his way to some good little
farm boy as a welcomed pet.
