Dandy — a Glittery, Glitzy Fellow

The most special thing about winter, to me, is snow. I love how it makes me feel like a little kid again. How it stirs memories of sledding dangerously down steep hills, of sipping hot chocolate with lips still stinging from the cold, how it makes me think of playing outside with my brother, building snowmen and collecting enough clean snow for a new fresh batch of delicious snow cream.

There were many evenings that I just looked out the window, watching new flakes fall and loving how the snow glistened in the moonlight. That sparkle was magical. Still, my very favorite thing about winter is snow. And my very favorite thing about snow is how it sparkles when the light hits it just right.

My offering for this month’s PFATT Marketplace is a tribute to that lovely sparkle.

Dandy is a mixed media sculpture built onto a paper-mache cone. He can be a tree topper at Christmastime and then function as a free-standing doll the rest of the winter. He’s sure to keep you good company on cold winter days!

Dandy is around 12.25″ tall and will be available on Dec. 10th at 1 p.m. EST on my PFATT Marketplace page. (Or just click the image below!)


Patty…a Sleeping, Pink Pixie.

This charming little lady is Patty. She’s a sleeping pink pixie full of sweetness. I like to think that once she awakens, she’s responsible for fluttering around, sprinkling moments of tenderness and sweetness onto our lives.

Patty is my newest offering for the PFATT Marketplace which will be “live” today, Feb. 10th at 1 PM EST.

Let these images of Patty make you think of warmer, sweeter days ahead. And if you’d like Patty to flutter to your abode, visit my shop on PFATT Marketplace.

A Santa Army.

You don’t want to mess with Santa. No, really, you don’t. Don’t let those rosy cheeks and kind eyes fool you. He has an army on his side– a whole slew of Christmas characters and woodland creatures who have his back. It could get messy…and glittery. It’s best to just be nice to the man in red and his cohorts.

Here’s a whole batch of Santas and some of his best buds. They’re my last Christmas dolls for 2013 and they’ve made their way to my Etsy shop. (Click the photo below to be taken directly to my etsy shop.)

Here are some photos of this rowdy bunch!

Thanks for looking! I hope these little guys have made you smile! Let the Christmas Countdown begin!

Camille, Regal Pumpkin Queen


It takes a super sweet girl to be Pumpkin Queen, but make no mistake…this little girl can keep all those soon-to-be-Jack-o-lanterns in line! Meet Camille. She’s a 17″ original, one of a kind muslin & fiberfill creation. She’s  been hand-painted top to bottom and has been sanded & aged, giving her such a lovely, vintage patina. Camille has been sealed so that she may be lightly dusted after display. She has button jointed arms which may be slightly posed. She has been made in the style of a stump doll & has no legs.

Camille’s face has been been carefully painted with a variety of media. Her nose & lips have been needle-sculpted by hand, giving her a great little pout. Her hands are needle-sculpted as well.

I just adore this sweet Moda Halloween print. It is 100% cotton.  The hemline has been hand-stitched. Camille’s blouse is made of white muslin & features a beautiful vintage rhinestone button at the neckline. The button is speckled & shows wear but is such a lovely addition to such a regal doll! Camille’s sleeves have been gathered by hand. The neckline of her blouse & back of her blouse features hand-stitching.


Camille’s super sparkly wand is a paper clay creation With a dowel insert. It has been painted & festooned with Martha Stewart glitters. I have to say, Martha Stewart glitters are so fun to use (play with!) And they’re beautiful. The amount of sparkle is unmatched! Paperclay leaves have been attached with rusty wire.


Camille’s auburn hair is 100% mohair. It has been attached with light glue for extra security & needle-felting. Camille’s sparkly crown has been constructed of cardboard, held together with eyelets, painted, glittered & sealed. It is attached to Camille’s head with corsage pins.

Camille is currently available on eBay & will end Sunday, Sept. 19 @ 9:15 PM EST. Click here to view or bid!
