Autumn at Last

“...At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Today welcomes Autumn, my favorite time of year.  I think I simply exist through Summer, as may be noted by my lack of posts here, I hibernate away from the heat and humidity waiting for the crisp, tangy air of Fall.

Not that I've been completely slack lately,  I actually did just post 10 small dolls and 2 pins to my Etsy shop.  Once again vintage lace has found it's way onto a couple of the new ones. Like this little Goldilocks...

Here's Mary with her little Lamb, only my second attempt at needlefelting.

Of course with Halloween right around the corner I have to make some witches. I have a big one on the table and here's the first of the tinies...

And in honor of our "girls", who have been hard at work making us honey this summer, I made a couple of Bee Pixies.

So now that Autumn is here I expect to be back posting more regularly once more...see you again soon!


  1. They are all so adorable! I'm glad you posted the poem. It speaks of autumn in such a true fashion.

    You have been busy! Now that it's autumn, one can only imagine what you will produce!

  2. Glad to see you posting again. I agree with you about the summer. I find that I am not as productive when it's too hot. When fall comes along I seem to get my second wind as they say. Your dolls are adorable as always. I love to see what you have been making:)

  3. I love Fall, wish we had more of a Fall here. And I'm really loving one of your dolls in particular...uh oh....

  4. YAY Fall!!! My favorite season!
    I love love the sweet Mary and lamb. so adorable. And the bee pixies are perfect.
    Can't wait to see the big witch:)

  5. Elles sont toutes si jolies, et si parfaites....
