Not only does she have a Wonderous shop in New Hampshire, but Also a jam packed website, filled with goodies to feed the soul. Please take a look~
So this is my Addition to the Spring mix~
First we have "Thaddeus Winthrop Hare"
I am so Excited about Thaddeus! He is my first Free Standing piece. I have been wanting to make him for a while now...but had to whirl it around in my head....
So, I weighted his boots and constructed his body at just the right angle, so that he would stand securely with no need for a base. His walking stick is just decorative. I wanted to give him a lantern, but couldn't find one that I liked...so I made one that would be folky and whimsical...I even dipped the candle! And, of course, Thaddeus is in Vintage attire.
Next we have "Bunny Love"
I just LOVE making rabbits....I think they are my favorite. You can add so much whimsy. Bunny Love is made from sparse mohair that I dyed a warm chocolate. I gave him skinny arms and legs and even...curled toes! He sits atop a tuffted made from an antique coverlet.
And Finally, "Sweet Isabella"
Isabella resides in an Antique Victorian Wedding Day shoe. She is dressed in antique clothing and carries a tiny antique crocheted acorn from the Edwardian Era. Of course, Isabella wouldn't be mine if there wasn't a little whimsy. Her head is sparse mohair, but her arms and legs are finely wrapped wire...poseable and skinny sweet!
These three pieces are all One-of-a-Kinds, so if you are interested, Please contact Wendy at
Hope you have a Great Day!
