Salamanca Market May 24 2014 & coming event!

Pansy, Fern & April dolls will be available at Salamanca Market in Hobart next Saturday- but I can't tell you where I will be! This is not because I am being secretive but because I am on the waiting list and won't find out my stall position until I am allocated one on the day. See you there come rain, hail or shine- or all three at once as is inclined to happen in Hobart! An exciting event that I will be having a stall at is coming soon.- 'The 2014 Miniature Extravaganza' will be held on the 28th and 29th June in The Long Gallery at the Salamanca Arts Centre in Salamanca Place Hobart. There will be lots of miniature displays (bring your magnifying glass!) and lots of lovely (little) things to buy including my lovely little dolls. The Miniature Enthusiasts of Tasmania group runs the event and donates the proceeds to charity. This year the money goes to 'Freedom Wheels' a Tasmanian group catering for children with a disability, some of whom have never ridden a bike before. They provide bikes and adapt bikes to suit disabled kids. How fantastic! So come to the Extravaganza at the end of June and have a lovely time and help the 'Freedom Wheels' people help the kids.

I think we can blame my darling little dogs for this as my back problems reappeared directly after a brisk walk in rather cool temperatures here in New Norfolk! I tried to tell them it was too cold to go walking but they wouldn't take my advice. Oh well we are all well exercised if a bit stiff in spots! Come and see me at Salamanca Market next Saturday but rug up well and remember, beware of little dogs who tell you it's never too cold for a walk!

Lottie loves walkies! (so do I!)

Pansy, Fern & April dolls will again be at Salamanca Market in Hobart next Saturday! Find me and my little dolls in site #269 which is a centre aisle site near the silo end of the market. Wear your woolly jumpers- the weather is starting to look a little chillier these days! I recently made a lovely wallhanging you may like to see. I recalled my former life as an embroidery project designer and put little dolls with it too! It has Red Riding Hood in the forest picking flowers, the wolf lurking in the forest, granny tucked up in her nice cosy bed, and the woodcutter rushing in to save everyone from the mean wolf! I used a slightly scaled down set of dolls (which made them even cuter!) and made the dolls so they could be removed from the wallhanging for playtime! I used some new and some vintage trimmings. The couple who purchased it last Saturday are expecting their first grandchild soon and really loved it. The lovely RRH wallhanging went to a good home!

Good news, doll lovers, I will be at Salamanca Market in Hobart next Saturday with lots of my lovely little dolls for you to purchase! I have secured a site at the Davey St. end of the market- site #5 (that is 5 down from Davey Street). I will have lots of dolls, sets that make great gifts as well as lots of little individual people that would love to live in your doll's house! See you then- bright and early at Salamanca Place next Saturday. Also, order from my website at http://pansyfernapril.etsy.com

Salamanca Market January 25 2014

Welcome to a new era at Salamanca Market in Hobart where there are too many stall holders and not enough stalls! Yes I am on the waiting list again this week. I will attempt to be at the market this Saturday but will only find out if I'll be allocated a site on the day.You are welcome to call me on Saturday morning if you'd like to know if I'm there anywhere. Call me on 0427154517. Remember you can find my dolls also at 'The Wilderness Society Shop' at 33 Salamanca Place, or order from my website at http://pansyfernapril.etsy.com
Ballerina doll (42cm tall) $75.00

Lovely Long Lady doll (57cm tall)  $95.00
I thought you'd like to see some of my painted dolls. I have finally managed to get time to make some again! I have made 6 including these two. I also have a smaller ballerina, a Harlequin and a large Humpty Dumpty plus others. The dolls are made from calico and stuffed and then painted with acrylics. I match the painting to the fabric of the skirt. I used to make heaps of them but the little dolls house people gradually took over! This all sounds a little like war but I guess that's life!
See you Saturday!
