Zoey, A Primitive Pumpkin Fairy resembling the Atlas Moth


This little girl is Zoey. And yes she is little! Zoey is my first individually offered mini. She has been made of muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom many, many times. Zoey is sealed with a combination of sealers so that she may be beautifully preserved. She has a hemp loop attached to her back for hanging. She can also sit on her own with the aid of those beautiful wings. Her knees are sewn through, making her a great shelf sitter. Zoey is a wee 10 inches tall, with an 8 inch wingspan & brings with her a 4.5 inch pumpkin.

Zoey’s face has been painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand, just like my larger dolls.

Zoey’s fingers have been needle sculpted. She sports dainty mustard yellow gloves & pretty boots complete with orange laces & mustard yellow socks. Zoey’s laces are highlighted & shaded, making them so very interesting.

Zoey’s skirt has been made from two truly supple & soft 100% cotton prints. Her blouse is made of taupe osnaburg & features hand-gathered sleeves & tiny glass beads adorning the front. There’s tons of hand-stitching on these two pieces. All visible hems have been hand-stitched as well as the back of Zoey’s blouse.

Zoey’s wings have been made of muslin. They are machine quilted & hand-painted to resemble the Atlas Moth. They have been sanded & stained for a slightly primitive appearance and are attached with heavy duty button thread & a vintage button.


Zoey’s tiny white pumpkin has been made of muslin, stuffed with fiber fill & hand-painted & sanded many times. It is stained for a rustic appearance & is finished off with a rusty wire ‘stem’ (attached with invisible filament) & hemp bow.

After the fall season, you can display Zoey with your butterfly or fairy collection. Her hair is light red 100% mohair. It was lightly glued & carefully needle-felted to her head.

Greta, a Primitive Harvest Angel

I’m so happy to introduce to you Greta, a very special Harvest Angel. Sometimes, it takes more than a green thumb! Greta is my original design & measures a little over 30″ from head to toe. She’s been made of muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & hand-painted & sanded, top to bottom many times. Greta’s lower torso has been rag-stuffed & bean-filled in order to weight her little bottom. Her arms have been lightly wired. Greta has a rich, deeply-aged patina.

Greta’s face has been needle-sculpted by hand and hand-painted. Her bottom lip ‘pouts’ while her top lip is simply painted. She has been painted with various media & has been sealed top to bottom with a combination of sealers so that she may be lightly dusted after display.


Greta’s fingers have been needle-sculpted by hand. She sports buttery yellow gloves. Greta also sports brown painted boots with with buttery yellow socks. They’re highly detailed right down to the pretty tan laces!

Hey there, Delilah.


DelilahHeadOn Delilah is a special angel. She is the Protector of the Harvest Home. This year Delilah has kept watch over a special patch of pumpkins & now, they’re ready for display! 

Delilah is my original design. She is 30" tall & made of muslin. Delilah & her green/blue pumpkin (modeled after my favorite type of pumpkin, the Jarrahdale!) have been stuffed with fiberfill. Delilah’s lower torso has been rag-stuffed & bean-filled in order to weight her little bottom. Delilah’s arms are lightly wired allowing her to be posed slightly. Her legs are loosely stuffed, though not wired,  and can be slightly posed. I’ve hand-painted Delilah, her wings & her pumpkin from top to bottom. Then I sanded them, painted them from top to bottom again & sanded them again. Delilah has been treated to a series of paint washes that give her a beautiful, deeply aged patina.

 DelilahFeet DelilahHands 

Delilah’s facial features (nose & bottom lip) have been needle sculpted & hand-painted. Her bottom lip pouts. Her upper lip is simply painted. She has blushing, peachy cheeks, detailed eyebrows, and big blue eyes.  I’ve needle-sculpted Delilah’s hands & bare feet. I hand-painted, shaded, highlighted & detailed her fingernails & toenails.  Delilah has been painted with premium acrylic paints & has been accented & shaded with oil pastels. I’ve sealed her from top to bottom with clear, glossy acrylic sealer so that she may be preserved beautifully over the years & kept a lifetime. 


Delilah’s wings have been made from muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & hand quilted. I’ve heavily stained them to accentuate the small hand-stitching. Delilah’s wings are attached securely to her back with a big vintage button.

Delilah’s pumpkin has also been heavily stained & sealed. A rusty wire stem tops off the pumpkin & has been attached securely with invisible thread. Delilah’s pumpkin is not attached to her. It has been designed to rest in her lap.

Delilah is wearing a striped prairie style dress. It features a ruffled hem &  slightly ruffled sleeves. On top of that, Delilah is wearing a white muslin apron fastened with two vintage brown buttons.  Both pieces of clothing feature extensive hand-stitching. The hems of both the dress & apron are hand-stitched as well as Delilah’s sleeves, apron pocket, apron top & sash. I’ve dyed Delilah’s clothes in a coffee, lavender bud & vanilla bath. They do not smell however. I simply dyed them in those substances to obtain a desirable hue.

Delilah’s hair is 100% raw wool. It has been lightly glued for extra stability & then carefully needle felted to her head. She sports loose buns at the base of her up-do.


Delilah is currently being auctioned on eBay & will run through 10/18/07. Click here to view or bid!
