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 Goldie and Bubbles, her pet gold fish

 Meet Goldie and her pet gold fish, Bubbles...
Goldie loves everything to do with the water...she loves puddles, ponds, lakes, rivers, the ocean, and even the bath tub!
Goldie's luxurious hair is a stunning combination of two hand spun art yarns, the curly thick and thin ginger by Yarn Rescue and the gorgeous mermaid like yarn with various hues of blue and green by Snowberry & Lime.
 Goldie sits and stands quite easily, and wears an adorable pair of bloomers with matching hair bow in limited edition gold fish fabric, made especially for her by Molly's Playground.
 Her eyes shimmer with various blues and greens of the sea...
Goldie's shoes are made of 100% wool felt with contrast blue and green stitching...she is all ready to be loved by a special child.

Goldie and Bubbles are ready to go, and will be listed in my Etsy shop for sale sometime today.
