Welcome! Sit down, peruse these pages, and indulge in the stories my dolls arouse within your imagination...

Once Upon A Doll began with my own love of dolls, especially hand made. My kids and I collect, play with, and love our dolls, and eventually I began to make dolls of my own. Although my dolls are based upon the principles of Waldorf doll making--natural and sustainably harvested materials (like wool stuffing and cotton interlock), hand spun and dyed wool yarns for hair, hand made doll clothes, 100% wool felt for shoes--my dolls cannot be called strictly Waldorf (more Waldorf-esque), as they have definite personalities, larger & more expressive eyes, and playful mouths. Once Upon A Doll features enchanted dolls made in the Waldorf tradition with a storybook theme for that special child in your life or the discriminating collector of handmade dolls.

The Four Seasons Doll Wreath

A wreath for your child to love throughout the changing seasons of the year: this wreath features 4 removable dolls to play with, and 4 separate sets of handmade wool seasonal decorations with which to adorn the wreath. Wool felt flowers, needle felted characters, wool felt owls, and five different hand spun art yarns are ready to be removed and interchanged to your child's delight. No more problems with a messy room or wondering where to place the dolls when play time is finished, for these heirloom quality dolls make lovely room decor on this enchanted circle!

4 delightful handmade cloth dolls for your little one, with 4 distinct personalities. Lovingly made by the very talented Celine (of http://www.etsy.com/shop/celinecnyc ). Each is 15 inches tall and represents a different season--Spring with her perky short blond hair and strawberry dress, Summer in her muted purples and greens, Fall in her earthy mushroom dress, and Winter in her artificial fur hat and boots.

 Here is lovely Miss Spring--featuring pinks and reds and strawberries!
Here is lovely Miss Summer--featuring roses and owls and purples!

 Here is lovely Miss Fall--featuring mushrooms and colors like autumn leaves!

 Here is lovely Miss Winter--featuring a smiling poinsettia and chilled blues and ivory hues!

Give your child FOUR presents in ONE! The perfect birthday or holiday gift, this wreath shimmers and sparkles as your child enjoys the spectacular four seasons of the year!
