Derwent Valley Autumn Festival April 6 2014

Pansy, Fern & April dolls will be taking a 2 week break from Salamanca Market. Sorry! I won't be there on the 29th March or April 5th. I will, however be at the Derwent Valley Autumn Festival on April 6th. This lovely festival is held in New Norfolk on the picturesque Esplanade by the edge of the Derwent River. It is a lovely family day with free entry, entertainment, yummy food and of course exceptional things to buy like my little dolls. I will be making a special effort to have lots of dolls for sale including a special edition of Autumn Fairies with natty acorn hats (which have been collected from the very same esplanade!) Come and see me in New Norfolk and enjoy the Autumn Festival! Remember to visit http://pansyfernapril.etsy.com to purchase my beautiful and unique dolls- your children will love them! A lovely lady asked me at the market last Saturday if I make dalmation dogs. I thought you might like to see some dogs I made for a shop last year. The photo looks really cute- the dogs look like a pack of pals off to make some mischief!
dogs, dogs, dogs! ($4.00 each!)

Salamanca Market March 22 2014

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!
See you Saturday and remember if you can't get to the market order at http://pansyfernapril.etsy.com
RED RIDING HOOD wallhanging $125.00

Pansy, Fern & April dolls will again be available at Salamanca Market next Saturday- in site # 283 near the entrance to the Salamanca Arts Centre. I will be introducing Easter things this week!

Salamanca Market March 8 2014

Good news doll lovers! Pansy, Fern & April dolls will be available at Salamanca Market next Saturday. I will be in Site # 146 which is a centre aisle spot just near Irish Murphy's pub on the corner of Salamanca Place and Gladstone Street. In upcoming events too I have applied to be at the 'Derwent Valley Autumn Festival' which will be held in New Norfolk on the lovely Esplanade on April 6. Come along and enjoy lots of Autumn-ish loveliness! I will be entering a painting in the art show there too! Better get busy! I love watercolour painting! In the words of Miss Lane ('Lark Rise to Candleford') it is my one weakness! See you Saturday! And remember if you can't find me at a market- order at http://pansyfernapril.etsy.com
bring your true love to the Autumn Festval!
