Pumpkins, Witches, Butterflies, Pugs and Mushrooms…New Work on Etsy

I just listed a few of my brand spanking new pieces in my Etsy shop. These guys are fresh off the work table and would be so happy with a new home for fall.

Here they are: (Click the first photo below to be taken to the corresponding listing in my Etsy shop. And if you don’t shop on Etsy and don’t wish to open an account, but would like one of these dolls, just contact me. )

“Gia” # 220

Gia -- a Monarch

“Poppy” #221








This little lady’s name might seem a little familiar. When I began sculpting her, I had a very different vision in mind. As I kept sculpting, I could “see” a very different doll taking shape. I decided to follow that path and file the other idea away for another sculpting session. The more I sculpted this doll, making decisions about clothing and her hat, I realized that, in a way, I was sculpting a self portrait–the person I would be if I were a woodland fairy. Not that she looks like me…but she feels like me.

And so, I named this doll “Becca”.

How ’bout some wearable art?!?


Alice, Rabbit, Little Red, Wolfie


Who says art has to stay on a wall or on a shelf? I’m so excited to be able to offer you my very first pieces of wearable art. (Available here!) If you’re an Alice in Wonderland, Little Red or Pug fan, I’m sure you’d be super happy to wear these little guys on your lapel, purse or backpack.

Each brooch is an OOAK piece of artwork. They have been made of muslin, stuffed with fiberfill & hand-painted, sanded & stained for a lovely, aged patina. Each brooch has been sealed with matte sealer with UV filter to ensure longevity. A brooch back has been carefully sewn to each piece with embroidery thread. The brooch back has been sewn securely, but please be careful when attaching & removing these pins as they are delicate.

Each brooch comes with its very own keepsake box which has been primed, painted, crackled & aged. They’ll be a lovely resting place for your wearable dolls!

I’ve initialed each brooch & will sign & date the bottom of each keepsake box as well.

Each brooch is being sold separately.


These girlies are Pugalicious!





Here’s how they look attached to my very cool Morelle purse. (Purchased on Etsy!)

Trixie – A Primitive Black Pug in Stripy Skirt.

TrixieHeadToToe This little girl is Trixie. Trixie is my first black pug doll. She is my original design & has been made of muslin & stuffed with fiberfill. She measures 10.5″ tall from head to toe. She’s been painted & sanded a couple of times, giving her a lovely, aged patina. She’s been sealed with a combination of glossy & matte sealers so that she may be lightly dusted after display. She has a slight sheen. Trixie can sit only with assistance & has a hemp loop attached to her back for hanging. Her knees have been sewn through, making her a perfect shelf sitter.

Trixie’s ears & muzzle have been attached separately by hand. Her muzzle sticks out approximately .25″, giving her a great pug profile.

Trixie’s fingers have been needle-sculpted by hand. She sports tan painted gloves. She also sports pretty brown boots with tan socks & red, detailed, laces.

Two pug ornies! They’re such a sweet couple. They quarrel occasionally, but what couple doesn’t?
