IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTICE!
There will be no shipping of items between 15th December - 2nd January 2018 because I will be out of the country. However I am keeping the shop open so orders can still be placed during this time and will be shipped immediately upon my return.

I have a few Verity Hope girls left in this range inspired by a trip to Provence last summer.  Some of the girls featured here already have homes but do click on the ETSY SHOP link to see the last few remaining dolls of this kind!

Storybook Inspired Dolls...

Here are some fun looking Verity Hope girls which I have just finished.  


 Like many of my creations, they were inspired by various illustrations in old storybooks.  It's hard to pick one illustration, I think they sort of encapsulate everything I like about the 'Golden Age of Illustration'. So here they are:

Meet Eva...


Meet Matilda...


Meet Maude...

 Meet Pinkie...


 Each doll has a golden hang loop so they can be hung up to bring cheer to any room or work space!


I've placed these little characters in the Verity Hope doll shop and have promised them that they will all find homes.  They know they may not all end up together and their only request is that a pen and paper can be provided with an envelope and three stamps each so they can all keep in touch with one another.  They don't ask for much else, just to be loved and cherished.

Garden of Serenity Girls...

I've been fascinated by wooden dolls for as long as I can remember and adore many of the Dutch doll illustrations by Florence K. Upton...


Here is a range of Verity Hope dolls with a wooden theme and I'll be posting quite a few of them over the next few blog posts.  I'm using the same yarn wrapping method used for my smaller vintage doll house style dolls and kits but these dolls are larger and extremely whimsical!

Some of these dolls may still be available from the ETSY SHOP DOLL LINK and do also take a peak at the limited edition doll making kits that are currently available while stocks last.

Thank you for visiting and 

HAPPY DAYS TO ALL THOSE WHO STILL PLAY!
