There is one of those slow and steady rains outside my window, nourishing the gardens. It was much needed and as such I am thoroughly loving the sound. We are surrounded by woodland and soft summer rains always give the feeling that we are safe and sound in our little farmhouse deep in an enchanted forest. I wanted to share an enchanting doll maker that elicits that same feeling. Pixiwillow. I found her site when looking for doll sculpting classes last year for my daughter.
When we began looking at this gallery we were floored. Below is an interpretation of young Peter Pan being visited by Tinkerbell. The artist's name is Michelle Bradshaw and she is amazing. Have you ever seen such detail? I could spend hours gazing at her work. Cinderella's mouse is pictured below. Ack! I covet this little furry creature! Can you get over this detail?
Of course I have told you all before about my obsession with fairy tales, the darker the better. Well, how dark is this? Alice in Wonderland in a decidedly creepy little vignette. Love the Cheshire Cat portrait.
Sweet Alice, fresh from the looking glass. I am in awe! I had to share this talent with you. Check out all of her creations in her online gallery, but make sure you have a bit of time. You will not be leaving quickly!
Speaking of Alice, I am on pins and needles waiting for March of 2010 and this movie...Alice in Wonderland (2010). Tim Burton is the best!
Now, please do yourself a favor and visit this inspiring and magical place.
Have an enchanted Wednesday, P.
