1 ~ yaya rose, by dayanra
these yaya dolls are so fantastically simple and 
wonderful... just the type of doll i loved cuddling with as a child

2 ~ together, by geninne
a gorgeous print of an original watercolor
illustration, sure to brighten the home any time 
of the year (i just purchased one myself!)

3 ~ pears, by myfinn
these scrumptious knitted and felted pears truly
look delicious enough to eat 

4 ~ team spirit dress, by parsimony
so versatile (and adorable) - can be layered with
a long sleeve shirt, leggings, and boots in the fall;
or worn simply with sandals in the summer

5 ~ candle holders, by thelogbasket
made of douglas fir from the forest of dean, these
candle holders will soon be in my shopping cart
after the holidays... i can resist them no longer!

6 ~ balsam filled ornament, by enhabiten
made of vintage cotton and boiled wool, these lovelies
are filled with balsam fir needles from maine... bring 
the wonderful scent of the forest right into your home

wanted to share pictures of a few holiday custom orders i recently completed for customers in my shop

the first, is a forest of hollow trees, ranging from the small callicarpa bush to the tall conifers

and here is another little grouping of the people who live amongst such trees

i'm nearly finished with my custom orders... they have been such fun to create... next up, i must begin to create my own christmas gifts!  only a few weeks left
