This custom Little Red Riding Hood was a birthday present for a little girl and it was based on some really neat vintage illustrations that her mom sent me. The pictures were probably from the 40's, and I loved how the printed red fabric I picked for the dress captured that era's vibe.

The customer who purchased this sweet little fellow and his dog sent me a message recently to let me know he arrived safely at his new home in Istanbul!

This special group of dolls went to live at a terrific child care center in Virginia that specializes in being green and keeps Eco-friendly toys for the kids there.

This set of mermaid dolls was created for and will be available at a seaside gift shop in Rhode Island called Moby and Madge. Check it out if you are in the area!

This set of dolls was modeled to match the traditional costumes of the Sami people of Norway. This is one of three Norwegian costume styles I've been working on for a project with a Norwegian gallery owner. I'll tell you more about this project soon...

Making doll families is one of my favorite types of orders. This one was no exception! So much fun.

I'm hoping to make a big batch of ready-to-ship dolls soon, so keep an eye out here and on the shop!

 
 

I can't seem to help myself when I'm thrift store shopping or browsing Etsy. I have more than my share of vintage paintings and embroideries. I just can't help myself. Especially anything kitschy and/or colorful (but also beautiful).

And this bizarre, funny, wonderful piece. I just couldn't pass it up. Though I have yet to decide where to hang it. Have you ever seen anything like it?

 
 

It was supposed to be cloudy and rainy all day,but the sun is peeking out through a little break in the clouds and both this plant and I are soaking it in.

 
 

This last month or so has been busy in my studio with some really really fun requests!
