Doll Land Inside Piddlestixs!
Entering Doll Land at Piddlestixs!3
Since I was a little girl I was always excited to get a doll whether it was old or new, a doll always allowed my imagination to soar. Dolls have inspired me to write, draw and create, its this childhood fantasy that I carried over into my adult world which allows me to keep the magic inside me and to see things differently then others.
Inside Doll Land at Piddlestixs!
An old doll in a grungy condition might be turned away from some, but to me, its a doll waiting to be given life again. I might turn that doll into a new one, mold it, add to an assemblage, draw it, tell a story about it or comprise it of other parts to become something new such as a wand, jar topper or embellishment.

Doll Land Inside Piddlestixs! 3
At Piddlestixs I wanted to dedicate a whole section for the whimsy of childhood, complete with dolls and toys, a blend of vintage, modern, broken and artful, a place I call Doll Land and the Circus Follies. There is a magic hidden in these items which can bring back our childhood spirit.

Many of these dolls sit in the hand painted pink glass cabinet, which I created especially for them. Along side is a pink child's storybook hutch, white shelves filled w/vignettes, 2 castle like pillars and doll house curtains. Everyday I plan to add to the collection with furniture, toys and more dolls.The Dolls in the Curiosity Cabinet! 5The Dolls in the Curiosity Cabinet! 4

Hi Lisa!
I live literally two seconds down the road from your shop! We were having breakfast at the Millside Cafe yesterday morning, and I looked up and noticed your store! I don't know how I missed it, since I drive by everyday! I HAVE to stop in soon! Maybe we could do a book swap or something. Don't know if you're interested in needlefelting?! Can't wait to come in and say hi! :) http://www.jenndocherty.typepad.com
