Announcement    To my USA international buyers, your mail is taking much longer than normal, in some cases months longer. The problem lies with your USA customs who, since covid , have decided to quarantine parcels, so please put pressure on your sorting office. I don't charge postage on many items, so I would like to ask for patience and understanding that delivery times are very slow, but they are getting there, yours most sincerely, Deborah xxx

My little world of nonsense.......

Since my fingers could create, I have been making dolls and toys.

My Mother and my Grandmother, had me fully competent on the sewing machine at 7 years of age and knitting dolls clothes before that. Coming from a quality line of makers, and a hard working Romany gypsy background, I was destined to follow my dreams and become the toymaker, teacher and puppet maker I am today.

I have a degree in fashion and textiles and a masters in ceramics. I do this as a fulltime living, this is not a hobby, its a job and obsession. I work on my own for very long hours every day, most pieces require a great deal of hand sewing, which takes time. I have been doing this as a fulltime career for 33 years now, but I was making dolls way before the age of 18 too, its in the bones.

When designing something new, I always start with the face, very often these creatures present themselves, with very little assistance from me. Making the whole process , still , a very magical one.

I am always very happy to take on commissions or restoration work, just message me for details, thanks so very much for taking the time to read this X
