About

I've been crazy about knitting, crocheting and especially about making dolls for myself since I was a kid. I'm almost 60 now, mother of 3, and grandma of a fresh one. I feel sad when a doll is not played with, and I take great care to reflect real emotions on the faces of my dolls. Not every toy has to be ideally beautiful -- sad, ugly, confused faces are also dear to my heart.

I studied arts and interior design, I have worked as a special effects expert for cinema, and after having children I worked as an art teacher. Now enjoying retirement and etsy:)

My dream is to see a darling little baby one day in a NYC park or on a street in Amsterdam or in the subway in London wearing one of my cardigans .To know that a sweet baby is wearing my little sweater in a far away country makes me very happy and that's why I have this shop.
