Update Sept 28 2012!

Due to the rotten windy weather forecast I won't be at Salamanca Market this week. It takes  more energy than I have this week to fight with a marquee in the wind! See you next week.

Salamanca Market September 29 2012

My site at the market this week will be #212 which is in the centre aisle outside the Salamanca Fresh Friut Market near the entrance to Salamanca Square. I will be definitely bringing lots of dolls and most definitely the receipt for the payment of my stall fees! If you couldn't find me last week it was because I was moved to a different site because the market organisers double booked my site. Not a good start to the day! Hope for a smoother run this Saturday. See you there- dress warmly as it could be a chilly one!
News!   I'm working on a big order of dolls for a school at the moment and will show the results soon. I am making Jesus and His 12 disciples! Wow, I like a challenge!

Salamanca Market September 22 2012

Pansy, Fern & April dolls will again be at Salamanca Markets next Saturday! I will be in the lovely tree lined section near the law courts just up from Gladstone Street in stall number 38. I will have my usual array of lovely dolls and doll sets as well as my newest creation........ A Mouse in a House! These cute little characters live in beautifully modified matchboxes and are a real hit! So much so that I don't have a photo to show you as I sold all of the first batch before I had a chance to take their picture! Woops!
I will endeavour to do so this week with the current batch!
I thought you might be interested to see these dolls I made for someone whose grand daughter loves "The Wind in the Willows". I don't ordinarily make them but you can order them. Featured are Badger, Weasels (2), Rat, Toad and Mole.
See you at the market or visit my page on etsy at where you can see lots of the dolls and buy them too!

Salamanca Market September 15

Pansy Fern and April dolls will again be at Salamanca Market next Saturday September 15 2012. My stall will be at #145 in the centre of the market near Irish Murphy's pub. I hope everyone has recovered from last week when the winds in Hobart were so strong that the market had to be closed. It became very dangerous with tents and stock being picked up and blown away! Thanks to the HCC market organisers who assisted everyone and made the very wise decision to close early- just in time too as a large tree fell where some stalls and shoppers would have been! Close escape!! Many thanks too to the valiant shoppers who still shopped in the morning in the wind and made my short but breezy day worthwhile!
See you next week- with calmer weather hopefully!

Salamanca Market Sept 8 2012 & New Dolls!

Good news!  Pansy, Fern & April dolls will again be at Salamanca Market in Hobart next Saturday September 8. I have a stall at the Davey Street end of the market- in fact near  the very top on the St David's Park side ! If you are driving past on Davey Street give me a wave!- Or better still pop in and see what lovely dolls I have made this week! -  Which brings me to my latest new tiny little dolls- They are called
Cupcake baby in and out of her packaging!
Cupcake Babies and they are tiny baby dolls packaged in a little silicone cupcake mould!  They are the perfect gift for the keen little baker in your family. The tag that comes with the baby reads- "Use the silicone mould to cook a tiny cake, but please don't bake the baby!"
Remember everyone, Christmas is coming- yes I know this reminder could be a bit early but there are only so many dolls I can make each week, so maybe think about ordering now!
All the best and see you Saturday or visit my website at
