Grimms Fairy Tales


I've been spending some time getting inspired by reading some of the original Grimms Fairy Tales. The original brothers stories are nothing like the stories that our parents read to us a children. They are much darker and were actually written for adults of the time.




Lil Red

I've been having so much fun reading these stories I have to remind myself to stop and actually make a doll!

I am positively in love with these three! They are too beautiful...and with your signature touch of 'dark'. Absolutely magical! Also, thank you for the link to the Grimms Fairy Tales, some of these I had never had the chance to read in their more original form.

Hi, I recently found your dolls on Etsy, then your blog. I didn't realise this whole amazing doll oddity world was out there. I have had dolls in my head for so long. Now I am beginning to make them. Thanks.
