"Great Little Box!"

Combine a small wooden jewelry box with a beautifully crafted carved "Sea Turtle", add glorious, pure pastel shades painting the turtle shell and you have A Great Little Box! It sits on a shelf where I pass it a dozen or more times each day and it makes me happy every time I see it.

"AWESOME"

When we placed this order we were skeptical. It arrived before its scheduled delivery and when we opened it we were so surprised. It was exactly what we wanted. It is beautiful. The wrapping was not expected but it was so beautiful. We couldnt be happier and will definitely order again. You made a young lady very happy today. Thank you so very much

I just received my Storyteller Hippo. It is as delightful in person as it is in the photos online. I am impressed with the beautiful artwork that makes this storyteller doll unique. I would love to order at least one more so that the hippo has company. Thanks for sharing your talent!

The ""Lotus Buddha"" came today, and I am beyond pleased! This piece has definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful work!
