kokeshi find


This little kokeshi was waiting for me I just know it! I found her today at my local Salvo's second-hand store. I collect old style kokeshi and this make her number six. Welcome little one :)

Nice spotting there Sarah! I have three miniature paintings of Caroline's that are waiting for very special framing. This little ink painting she sent me as an extra gift! You can't see it in the photo (it isn't the best photo!) but in the body of the character can be seen small sets of eyes. I treasure her work not only for its delicacy but for its symbolic richness. Glad to meet another fan :)
