On a Spirit Doll roll!

My dear friend Brigit has inspired me! Plus, I only have one lone Spirit Doll on display in my shop, Boulder Creek Antiques & Art. So, I've been so focused on creating these little dolls. Most of my dolls have been 15-18 inches... these little ones are around 8" tall. I love handling them, reminds me of the popular 8" dolls I played with in the 1950's.You can't tell from the pictures, but each one was fashioned on a vintage thread spindle. The arms are from various twigs collected in Yosemite, Monterey, and here in the Redwoods.

Haven't found names for them yet....(I'm open to suggestions!)

This is Iris, Goddess of the rainbow and messenger to the Gods.
Her 'write up'....
As Goddess of the rainbow she restores
calm and balance to the forces of nature.
She was the handmaiden to Hera and served nectar
 to the Gods as a Faithful, loyal and a shape shifter.
As a bridge to the heavens, she is a messenger
to the gods, as a mystic intangible entity.
She wears vintage scarves in colors of the rainbow.
Her rainbow attire is an amalgamation of light - a perfect harmonic combination which produces a symbol of supernatural beauty, promise and enlightenment.
Her red hair...represent her passionate nature.
Her fiery temper and fierceness will protect you,
 and bestow upon you, the courage to be YourSELF.
She is created from riverwashed wood found in Yosemite.
The Lacy Moss was gathered in the windswept Cypress trees of Monterey. 


  1. As soon as you mentioned that you were looking for names and I scrolled down to the very first one - the name 'Yula' came to mind. Don't know why! And, oddly enough, no names have popped into my brain for the others.


Thanks for your comments!
Sweet Blessings and Big Love to you
