I have a doll ready for the shop. Her name is Lotta. I have mindfully and happily created this little one. She is all things gentle and spirited. She has a quiet calm, a certainty of her place in the scheme of things. She is in those years when family and her own little world are her reference points, the way it is done here is the way it is done and it’s wonderful. No comparisons to others, no jealousy or longing just a contentment with what is, in this place. A wonder too at the things she finds in this little world. Do you remember those times, somewhere deep inside you when all that you had was more than enough and there was always something new to discover in the everyday which was so much more than extraordinary?
Gentleness, playfulness,exuberance, joy… Childhood.
‘To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your Hand
And Eternity in an hour…’
Lotta will be in my shop November 3rd at 9am AEST
Remember I live in Tasmania so you will need to convert to your time zone.
