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.

Little Lavender

"As Rosemary is to the Spirit, so Lavender is to the Soul".
Meet Lavender, a little doll who loves quiet early mornings. Lavender's long, lush hair is a combination of textured wool hand spun art yarns in all the hues of lavender, purple and blue, and may be styled a variety of ways for creative play. She wears white bloomers, a flowered dress, and a hand made lavender bolero for chilly morning walks. (Dress and bloomers made especially for her by Blissality.) 
Her purple "boots" are made of 100% wool felt.
 Lavender's simple expression allows your child to imagine whatever emotion he or she wishes. The wool stuffing warms to your child’s body temperature, making it feel like a real companion to befriend. Her stylish outfit of dress, scarf, and hand knit purple undies is removable. 
Most YOSD clothes or 1/6 doll clothes fit her as well. 
To bring Lavender home, simply go to my ETSY SHOP--she's listed for sale right now.
