Breeze is a Sprite from the Tail End of Autumn. This is a time of year that can be a little sad and gloomy, but, unbeknownst to us humans, the world of faerie is busy ensuring there are some spashes of light and colour amidst the grey to cheer us on the gloomy, overcast days at the end of November........
Breeze works hard to pull out all those final bits of colour; the flower heads that just escaped the frost, and the last red and gold crinkled autumn leaves. Then she places them strategically, so we see them on our hurried trips into the garden; or whilst we are huddling into our coats and scarves on a chilly walk out in the woods, and so, quite unaware, we are reminded of all the colour and light we have seen and which is yet to come.
She's a pensive little soul with a tendency to sit amongst the leaves and daydream.
Breeze's shift is woven of cobwebs, moonbeams, and the last flower petals touched by the November frosts. Her boots are fashioned from lambs wool gathered in the spring, which she felted in an acorn cup, and then painted with fallen stardust, adding dewdrops to make them sparkle.
Breeze has been created from my own pattern. Like my other dolls she has her own special written story, and, she may be looking for a new home.....we shall see! x
