Homespun Dolls Welcome

Hello Welcome to HomespunDolls blog page. I am a self taught doll artist who creates fantasy art dolls. All of my little ones live and work in a little piece of my backyard called Elftown. During their creation they all have their own personal story that is told just for them. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do making them.
You can follow me on Twitter @HomespunDolls and Facebook HomespunDolls.

My version of a cage doll

The original cage dolls were made to use as alters of sorts. Usually depicting the image of Mary the mother of Jesus. People who lived too far from a church would use the doll at their alter. Placing sacred items into the cage. My version of a cage doll is different. Mine is a Goblin and I see putting things found in nature into the cage. For the picture I have a flower and moss. She is 15 inches high and detachable from the cage. Here is Grunehilda Goblin my version of a cage doll.

Wow I haven't posted in over a year. I've been so busy with my shop and creating new little ones for Elftown that I have neglected my blog. I did add a Gallery page of some of my dolls that I have made in the past year. Others can be seen on my Facebook page HomespunDolls.
