everybody knows Adam & Eva. 
but how many people have ever seen them?

today, you'll be one of those able to say "yes! i saw pictures of them!" of course, this is very exciting.
but this is first very instructive!

let's read those incredible images! (i concede, some are not very well preserved, but don't forget you've got here a miracle!)

first, what's about the famous garden of eden? alas, those images won't tell us a lot because those two looked more like inside persons…

we imagine they lived in a cave. they had to protect from the rain, the sun, sometimes snow and maybe wild animals…

look at this tiny comfy room!
we can see here Eva has a mace, and Adam a big bone… what was the mace for? defend themselves against intruders? hunt for food? for sport?
and this bone? was it a charm? a toy? a weapon?
and this cute snake? he looks to be a very good friend…
and the apple? is it true Eva used to say an apple a day keep the doctor a way?

so many questions with no answers.

this very interesting pic teaches us two things:

first, the first human beings needed to sleep; 

second, they had fur blankets. 
we can legitimately deduce that polar bears existed BEFORE human beings. 
and it makes us think they were probably born in the Svalbard archipelago…

because yes: they invented shelves, 750000 years BEFORE Ikea! (we have here an answer about the apple, and must note shelves came before stools.)
a team is trying to know what were those shelves for, but here we had this interesting evidence:
Adam and Eva have been playful kids!

i know, i've been speechless too…

but on this one, nobody could deny it: adam is playing peek-a-boo!

we arrive to the fatidical question:

did Adam and Eva had a belly button?
hard to say, with their pants made of curly wolf yarn!

if you want to answer this last but not least question, stay tuned: adam and eva will be available next week in my shop…


the truth is out there…

(a tribute to Chris Carter's serie The X-Files)

It was the middle of the night, and little Fox woke up completely terrified.
Mommy run into his room and took him in her arms. 

— Stop crying sweet heart, it's all over, it's was a nasty nightmare. Nobody took Samantha…

— I'm pretty sure she's under your bed, you know she loves playing hide and seek…
Alas, no Samantha under the bed!
— Have you checked under the blanket, mom asked, maybe she was cold…

Thank Geez, Samantha was sleeping like a log at the bottom of the bed. Mom is so relieved. She hugs her little boy and walks to her room…
But Fox is not happy…

— Mommy, look at her, this is NOT my Samantha. Not at all! Samantha has been CLONED!
— Fox, please, nobody stole Samantha and nobody clones dolls in the middle of the night, mom said…

— Mommy, aliens do. They came and stole Samantha and went with her. Aliens can do anything.

And there was a bright light, and they went just like this, and i couldn't move. And they were talking like that :" … … … / …………………?" but I could understand everything, because they were talking through my head…

They were grey, mom. Aliens are all grey…

— My poor poor Samantha! I'm sure they are practicing tests on her now and she's suffering so much. 
And Little Fox cries, cries, cries again… 

It's always the same old story, nobody never believes you when you talks about aliens… Even if you saw them for real in your room… 

— I know I'm right, little Fox said, and I know the truth is out there…

The wild child

Once upon a times lived a very normal family.
Papa bear cooked, Mama bear played dolls. Daughter bear was looking at her shadow and Baby bear took naps.

It was a perfect and quiet life, everybody was happy and loving… 

On a glorious monday morning, famous Professor Petersen took a walk around and guess what he saw: Daughter bear taking a walk too!

— oh my god oh my god, Professor Petersen said, this bear looks so human! i must study this in emergency!
and he captured Daughter bear!

I suppose you remember Pr Petersen lived with his sister Miss Petersen who was also his assistant, his cook, the seamstress, the housekeeper, the gardener, the knitter.

— Geez, miss Petersen said, what a lovely little girl! what's her name?

— Don't be stupid, she's an ursula humana but you can call her Ursule, her brother answered! From latin Ursus, from old norse Yrsa! it's a wild child!

And Pr Petersen put poor Ursule under the microscope. He took notes, doodled sketches and talked to himself during hours… 

The real priority is a dress, miss Petersen said! stop moving when I measure you!

Alas alas, a Prince Charming was visiting the City, and miss Peterson fell in deep love with him. and alas, he also fell in love with her…

— NO NO NO, Prince Charming said, you can't bring home a wild child carrying a salmon under her arm!

Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaît point*, and miss Petersen left the town with her Prince, letting poor Ursule alone in the big city…

I know, this is a very sad story. But i'm sure Ursule will find a loving family and there will have a happy end…
She'll be available on wednesday (april 22rd) auction style in my shop. More in a while…

*the heart wants what it wants


snaerós, snaerós, is it already spring?

shhhh! there is an elf living in my garden… please don't make noise, just look through the window, yes here…

what is she doing?
maybe she tries to climb with squirrels?

or maybe she plays hide and seek with a owl?

oh no! no no no!!! why did you sneeze so loud? where is she now?
Snaerós, my little snowdrop, i'll miss you so much…

snaerós is in my shop…



many freaked control people talk about the supposed terrible two, but i remember very well what it looked like when i was a toddler…

look at this young person. how serious! and in less than three minutes, her parents will yell "noooo Luce! not on the carpet!" 
but who bought those permanent pens? who let them on the coffee table? who pretends she is too young to have her own table?

poor Luce… she'll never be an artist… or who knows? maybe she draw lots or priceless things on carpets, later…
but maybe her future is in climbing? she saw mom standing on a stool yesterday and it looked very funny. ouch, this is high…

YAY!!! look at me mom! i'm on the top of the world!
— LUUUUUCE! silly goose, come down! you'll fall and hurt!

Luce is a nice girl, she goes down… but parents are too stupid to understand the only way not to fall down is to be already lying on the ground… of course one asks:
— Luce please, what are you doing on the floor?

finally, it's time to go out!
coat? checked! shoes? checked! hood? on the head! 

so what's wrong? ha, hands in pocket! 

"don't put your hands in pockets, you'll damage your coat" "gimme your hand, it's dangerous"

— no i won't no i won't no i won't! 
and sweet Luce keeps her hands in her pockets. and removes her hood. and walks alone. just because!

Luce is made from a new pattern. her limbs are plump and she is more chubby than my traditional dolls. she is a toddler…

olie and kikki's first christmas in the mountains

i know, Christmas is over and showing photos now is a bit weird…
whatever, according to the stats, only 11 persons visit this place each week, and i hope they'll forgive me for being five days late (first, no internet in the cabin; second, most of the time i spend my life living it and i just forget to talk about it…)

back to christmas! this year, i needed a very special one.
christmas is supposed to be a happy and peaceful day, what can't happen if ascendants are around. idem for [step-]sibling, unbearable nephews and co. 

instead, we've decided to bring Olie and Kikki (and some others) to the mountains. 
everybody knows a real christmas requests snow, mountains and at least a weihnachtspyramide. 

and also twenty-twelve gifts, of course.

i just hope you had as much fun as we had,
the girls and i!



Merry Christmas to all my friends!
May you have peace, joy and chocolate…


who is Eogham?

every morning it's the same thing. Eogham put on his sweater and ask: "may i play outside today?" Alas, alas, it rains and i can't let him run in the mud…
— but i love rain, mud and wind, he says every day…

poor little man… is he a pixie, is he an elf? i don't have a clue, and the only thing i know is he's cute as button…

his name reminds me the dark rocks of the Connemara, but not completely; and his sweater comes from Fair Isle island… such an enigma…
and if you try to ask "where do you come from, Eogham?", he'll tell you something like "ssssh! i was under your bed. i played hide and seek with my secret friend Morrigan, the queen of the fairies…"
i can't deny, this boy belongs to the moor…

— i'm so sorry, he told me this morning, i know i'll miss you and you'll miss me, but i'll have to leave soon. this is my destiny… but don't worry, i'll never forget you, whatever happens…

Eogham will be available for a short auction in my shop from 9 pm to 10 pm (EDT) on WEDNESDAY (dec. 17)



many people asked for postcards of my dolls. 
i just forgot to announce them here!
i made 10 different series of five postcards. they are available in my indiecart shop

and in my etsy shop

(price = about 10€ + 2.20/2.50 shipping for a set of 5 postcards)



something rare happened to me this morning: it was just after my first cup of tea, and i decided to enjoy the sunshine and pick up some flowers.

click click click, made the scissors in the bush, pwick pwick pwick, answered the bush of roses…

oh? a talking bush? geez where are my eye glasses?
i put the flowers in my basket and came back to the kitchen.

except, i saw the teapot and my book, and completely forgot the flowers…

happily, later in the morning the children were yelling so loud that i finally shut my book (whatever, i just had finished it!) 

— we say she's my doll, said freyja, we have the same dress…

— no, she wears my clogs, she'll be mine, shouted thor…

— are you joking guys? this doll is alive and we must call mom, yoko said firmly!

— look at her, she plays peek-a-boo like my baby sister, we can't keep her here, oh no no no!!!
