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.

Miranda and Pilwinkle

 Miranda and her little gnome friend Pilwinkle are my newest custom creation.
 They love the natural world, and are quite fey themselves.
 Miranda's lovely dress is made by Molly's Playground and features adorable fabric with gnomes, mushrooms, and fairies on it.
 Her gorgeous hair is made of an assortment of hand spun art yarns, with an incredible mohair high light yarn by Rainbow Twist Shop!
They are so excited to depart  for their new home tomorrow!
A custom Dr. Who is almost complete...stay tuned.
