WOO HOOO and hello to The Polka Dot Club
...the idea of an heirloom toy really means something to me...
I love that Jennifer Murphy is creating playthings that matter,
toys that can be cuddled and treasured,
and are all the sweeter once they've been worn in, cuddled and loved.
I know Jennifer many, many years and have watched her business --
along with her talent and style -- grow and develop.
To celebrate her journey, I featured her in my column,
"The Business of the Studio" in Where Women Create magazine...
and you can read more about it here on the press pages...
and you can shop for the issue HERE
She has quite a story to tell!
Newly arrived here at Earth Angels Studios,
are her mohair teds and toys for Spring 2015...
These cuddling rabbits and heirloom bears have a whole lotta charm going on....
and are high on the play factor, too!
I mean, look at these faces...
Her little floppy teds are my personal faves...
what an amazing gift for a wee one.
(all of Jennifer's Polka Dot Club creations are child safety approved)
And Jennifer's bears have a fab sense of fashion...
like good quality toys of long ago, children had one
most treasured doll or bear...and clothes to play with...
I feel like this bunny hat and coat are just the most darling ever...
Thanks to Jennifer for the honor of working with her these many years...
I love that her bear making journey has led her to The Polka Dot Club...
