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.

Halloween Delights!

Two little dolls finished just in time for the festivities celebrating when the veil is thinnest between our world and the world of the spirits...

 First is little Skelly and her friend ghost...she is all ready for Halloween with her upcycled pink skeleton pajama costume (made by Nanerjoy) and her adorable little ghost friend who actually sparkles!

Skelly is already on her way to her new home...to trick or treat and haunt houses to her heart's content!

And now for our second little doll, maybe her bracelet of howlite skulls and swarovski crystals gives you a clue as to her identity?
She LOVES Dias de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)...
She even has a Sugar Skull mask that she wears to celebrate it (secured by a red sequined skull clippy)...
 Meet little Muertita wearing her sugar skull mask!
She wears a festive sugar skull dress (made by Molly's Playground), and her adorable shoes coordinate with her Sugar Skull mask...

Muertita was just listed in my etsy shop--buy her by Sunday evening for guaranteed shipping by Day of the Dead (November 1st)!!

Happy haunting,
Once Upon A Doll
