Little notes …

Once in a while a mom and her little one will come by the shop or at a market to look at the dolls. What the mom is really doing ,however, is some detective work to see which doll her child loves most. Sure enough a love match is made between the child and the […]

I remember having to do things like that when my son was young, I used to love planning surprises :)

Little Traditions

Growing up, it was always just me and mom. We didn’t have a lot of extended family and those we did have lived on the mainland so we rarely saw them. Because it was just the two of us, we often made up our own (often quirky) family traditions. At Christmas time, we decorated a […]

Love this post. Little traditions are important, and you’re right it is so nice when they evolve on their own. Is Isla your daughter’s nickname? I love it! My daughter’s bambolettas are part of a special tradition at our house (I think I mentioned to you in an e-mail.) When my 5 yr. old is away at school, they come to life and change their clothes, play hide and seek, or fly around her room. She never knows when it will be or what they will do and loves the surprise element of it. She now calls them her “Magic Dolls” and I agree that they are. They also have magical powers to keep monsters away, which is a huge bonus.(:

I have a grandbaby celebrating her first Christmas (she’ll be 10 months on Christmas Eve). She would love one of your beautiful babies.

Things in the shop …

I have this vision for my little studio shop at Whippletree Junction. I would love for it to be a sort of toy store/kids store that brings in local artisans from the Cowichan Valley and gives them a storefront to sell their wares locally. Slowly (mainly due to a complete lack of time) I’ve had […]
