Flo is sitting by the window today. She loves rainy days. its perfect for snuggling into the warm blanket, hearing the rain drops like a never-ending waterfall and reminding you of beautiful raincoats. its grey skies all over again! and it calms Flo down.

Once upon a time, humptydump played on these stone figures, concrete floors all out to give you a giant bump on the head should you fall. the stone figures look like birds, yet are not; look like dragons, yet dont fly. who cares, we just want to climb on them, make up our own adventures and run in abandonment the whole afternoon! whoppee!

We do not profess to be artisans of heritage pieces. But as we toiled, we realised that none of our dolls look the same, even if we used a photo image of the original piece. As we laboured night and day, hand-made took on a different meaning. It made us become acutely aware of how each turn of the fingers, an extra knot and stitch or a different shade of black for the eyes, can in turn yield so much difference in the final product. Every doll took on a life of its own, as though the constant contact with each little cotton body, stuffed with the softest balls of polyester, had been infused with emotions as we worked tirelessly at each of our handmade dolls. Out of curiosity, I googled 'beauty of the handmade' and found this beautiful article by Eric Cullerton, which would be our impetus to keep going, to keep making.
