Waldorf School Autumn market

Last weekend I had a market stall at my daughters school to sell my dolls. It was great fun to meet some customers in person and be able to talk to them. I had a few very small customers too, who came with a little pocket money clenched in their fists. Especially for them I made a lot of small wooden dollies so there was something to find for everyone. I made some bigger dolls as well and some fairies and needle felted animals and even a little dragon …

The items that were not sold will be uploaded over the next few days, I already made a start, so if you are looking for some handmade goodies, please take a look in my little shop.

Flower Fairy

Come to me and play with me,
I’m the babies’ flower;
Make a necklace gay with me,
Spend the whole long day with me,
Till the sunset hour.

I must say Good-night, you know,
Till tomorow’s playtime;
Close my petals tight, you know,
Shut the red and white, you know,
Sleeping till the daytime.

Inspired by the lovely drawing of Mary Cicely Barker I made a flower fairy, she is very sweet and only 7 inches. She is available in my Etsy shop. https://www.etsy.com/nl/shop/Poppelien


Flower Fairies

With a group of dollmakers we create a thema doll every month, and this theme of this month is Fairies and Elves. Since I love Fairies I did not have to think long. I do have a soft spot for a particular fairy, she is from one of the books of Cicely Mary Barker who made numerous lovely fairies. When I was pregnant with my first baby I asked my dad if he could make a painting for the baby room, he is a very talented painter and he made me a lovely painting of the Daisy Fairy. First it was in y sons room and then in my daughters bedroom where it still is. So I did not have to think long which fairy I wanted to make and this is how she turned out.
