What's New

You may remember that I made a Celtic goddess peg doll back in January as a special request. The same person asked for a stag king. He is now finished and ready to greet the world. There are many examples of stag kings, AKA the Horned God in Europe. He is a nature god of the hunt and the cyclic year, the embodiment of fertility and masculine power.  Some call him Cerununnos.

.

He lives and dies each and every year.  Born at the winter solstice, he mates in the spring at Beltane with the goddess and dies at Halloween or Samhain.  




I have chosen to give him antler horns, sometimes he has ram or bovine horns.  He holds a staff and a snake.  Around his neck is a torc, a male neck adornment and symbol of power.  He is dressed in green with a brown cape and a Celtic knot.






He is dressed in green with a brown cape and a Celtic knot at his waist. His hair is long and wild. Here is a photo of the Cerununnos on a Celtic cauldron.




Every year I create a design in my garden from ocean beach rocks.  I have done labyrinths, spirals, hearts and a medicine wheel.  Since I have Celtic theme going this year in the dolls I am making i decided to do a Celtic knot.  This is a trinity Celtic knot representing the 3 fold nature of the goddess-maiden, mother and crone; or the human-mind, body spirit; or in Christianity-the father, son and holy spirit.


By the way, that is a patch of day lilies in the upper corner.



What else have I been working on? Here is a sample of things I have made for swaps (Read about swaps HERE.














Witches are probably the most popular thing in my Etsy shop.  After a long hard winter I made spring witches with embroidered pussy willows and snow drops.









And a Turquoise witch in the largest peg size:
