Introducing...........Marijke van Ooijen

One of the best things about my wonderful occupation is that I get to meet like-minded people from all around the world. Several months ago I was lucky enough to "virtually" meet a doll and bear maker from The Netherlands - Marijke van Ooijen. Here she is with her grand-daughter (yes......I too made the mistake of assuming it was her own child - she looks so young!)

Marijke's blog and in fact all of her work, has a soft, romantic appeal, whether she is making something like this:

.........or something whimsical and amusing like this:

Softly focused photography and pastel colours enhance the sweet look!  Her blog is a true visual delight and a joy to visit. Here are some more delicious treats to feast your eyes on! And if you want to see more you can visit Marijke's blog at
