Snow Garden Dolls

Welcome Fall! Are you enjoying the colder weather? I'm definitely enjoying the season. My husband dragged my into the Home Depot the other day to pick out some chair railing for the baby's room. I was so tired that day I did not want to get out of the car. But I went and just by happenstance found these adorable pine finials that told me they wanted to be painted and loved. The taller doll measures 9" and the smaller 6". They are so nice and chunky and look lovely on my mantle. : ) I put them in my etsy shop even though I have a soft spot for the smaller one.
These where so fun to paint I will be getting many more...oh the ideas that are running through my brain.
They told me they are grateful to be painted : ) and hope to find loving homes.

Thank you so much for everyone who left comments regarding my top baby names! (I really appreciate the input).
If you would like to give me your preference of our two top names please see the last post (we're 60/40...but every bit of input helps!)
I hope you all are enjoying the season!
Have a great week.

  1. How nice! I can see them as angels too-and the name 'snow garden'-is perfect !!
    I'm not good with name choosing-but I kinda like your 'Sam' option :)
    Take care~

  4. I have been a way from blogland for a bit as we have moved house and that has made life a little crazy. But I am so glad I visited you today. Oh you are simply amazing!!! Your work is so very stunning, such a talented lady. One day I will own myself one of your pieces as they are just divine. I need a little of your inspiration and motivation at the moment. The well is very dry. Tell me what is you muse?

  12. Thes are sooooo neat! I love everything about them! I bet you are really glad you walked into Home Depot that day. Ha ha I bet you will be begging your sweetie to go again next weekend. I love them! I think I am on team "Sam", but they are both really nice choices.
