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.

Meet Autumn...she LOVES Halloween and sushi
Meet little Autumn...she loves SUSHI...
Autumn has winsome teardrop eyes and hair is the color
of the pumpkin patch and fall leaves, cut into a graduated bob.
She has the most adorable white bloomers under her sushi dress, and a shrimp sushi hair clip!
Autumn has decided to be a Jack-o-lantern for Halloween...see how she shimmers in her sweet sequined costume!
Autumn is already, SOLD, but I am working on three new delightful dolls that will soon be available for you to enjoy!
