Nori and Yori . Kokeshi doll no. 7

Nori and Yori . Kokeshi doll no. 7

When Yori was born, the Moon was much brighter than normal and the sky full of shiny stars.
 Nori carries him on her back singing the sweetest lullabies.
"You are my child of moonlight, the sea dances for you and I’ll always love you."

Nori is a One Of A Kind doll. I've used polymer clay, acrylic colors and paper to make her
 and her baby boy. The shadow box background paper is a museum quality print which will
not fade with time (for at least for 100 years).
It is decorated with a small paper cut moon and swarovski crystals. 

You can find them in my clay shop

* Name meanings: 
Yori (Trust)
Nori (Belief)

The miniature shadow box is beautifully handmade by my parents just for me!

Pieces of autumn

"Autumn is second spring when every leaf is a flower."
Albert Camus

Just wanted to share a few photos that I took during the months of autumn.
It's a beautiful season in Canada.

How about your city?

Hana . The 6th kokeshi

Here I am with kokeshi no. 6. Her name is Hana (Flower). She is a one of a kind doll.
 She will be listed in my miniature Etsy shop tomorrow 10AM Eastern Time.

She is made of polymer clay and is hand painted with lots of love and attention to details
 with acrylic colors and is sealed after that.
 The branch is gold plated brass and the flower is made of polymer clay and Swarovski crystal.
 The leaves are made of semi-transparent green paper.

Meet our cats

Meet our new cats, Felfeli and Boma!
 They are a pair of brother and sister and are one and a half years old!
 We adopted them 3 weeks ago. The sister (Felfeli) was very friendly and comfortable from day one,
 but Boma is a very shy guy.
He was hiding under the bed, in the tub, under the sofa, name it!
Now he is a bit better, he comes out and plays with his sister and we can pet him a little bit. 

 Boma in his hideout :D

Felfeli, she is the sweetest!

Maemi . The fifth kokeshi

Hello friends! I was very quiet here on the web, but I was doing a lot of fun projects behind the scenes! I have finished making four more kokeshi dolls. This little orange baby is one of them. I just need to take photos of the rest. Sometimes I wish I had a photographer! I am not in the mood for taking photos these day...Am I too lazy?!!

Now let me introduce  this little happy girl properly:

Her name is Maemi (Smile of truth) and obviously she loves oranges. You can find her in my Etsy shop but don't ever get tempted to eat her tiny oranges:

Those tiny leaves are hand painted. I use super small scissors to cut them out.
You can take a sneak peek at my other kokeshi dolls in the background.
I am so excited to show them all to you!
