Robin, Original, One-of-kind Folk Art Angel Doll by Elizabeth Ruffing

Robin, Painted Cloth Original Angel Art Doll by Elizabeth Ruffing

“Robin”

When the days start becoming long,
And the skies turn from gray to blue,
Robin sings her springtime song,
And life begins to start anew.
She calls her friends from whence they’ve flown,
And says it’s time to fly back home.

Original Poem Copyright 2006 Elizabeth Ruffing

Robin is the fifth in my series of five original, one-of-a-kind angel art dolls. She cradles a robin in her arms, as she has the special ability to speak to birds. Her blond curls are encircled by a garland of pink springtime flowers.

Robin is entirely painted by hand, using acrylic paints. She is a work of art, meant for display only. She is varnished for protection and preservation.

She has her own oak-stained wooden stand, which was handmade just for her. It slips in between her hand-quilted wings, and her body so she can stand.

Update: Robin has already been adopted. Thank you!

April May, Original, One-of-kind Folk Art Angel Doll by Elizabeth Ruffing

April May, Painted Cloth Original Angel Art Doll by Elizabeth Ruffing

“April May”

April lets the flowers know
When it’s time to start to grow.
She wakes them from their winter beds,
And nudges them to raise their heads.
She whispers softly in their ears,
“The snow is gone and spring is near.”

Original Poem Copyright 2006 Elizabeth Ruffing

April May is my fourth angel, in my series of original, one-of-a-kind angel art dolls. April May holds a bouquet of spring flowers, and wears a white dress with peach-colored ribbons. She has red hair, and reddish-brown, antique-style shoes.

April May is completely hand painted with acrylic paint, and varnished for preservation and protection. Her oak-stained, handmade wooden stand slips between her hand-quilted wings and her body, to allow her to stand. April May is meant for display only.

Update: April May has already been adopted. Thank you!

Rosetta, Original, One-of-kind Folk Art Angel Doll by Elizabeth Ruffing

Rosetta, Painted Cloth Original Angel Art Doll by Elizabeth Ruffing

Rosetta is my third angel, in my angel art doll series. Rosetta holds a bouquet of heart-tipped flowers. She also comes with her own poem…

“Rosetta”

Rosetta tends her fields with care,
For only seeds of love grow there.
She keeps them safe from wind and frost,
Protecting them at any cost.
She knows that love is pure and rare.
She knows it’s needed everywhere.

Original Poem Copyright 2006 Elizabeth Ruffing

Cottontail Charlotte, Original, One-of-kind Folk Art Angel Doll by Elizabeth Ruffing

Cottontail Charlotte, Painted Cloth Original Angel Art Doll by Elizabeth Ruffing

“Cottontail Charlotte” is my second angel in my series of original one-of-a-kind angel art dolls.

Charlotte has her own little cottontail rabbit, and her own poem:

“Cottontail Charlotte”

Charlotte sings a song that only rabbits hear.
When she lifts her voice, they always gather near.
The joy she brings makes them hop and dance,
Until they’ve all become entranced.
That’s how she shares the things she knows,
Where the sun sets, and how the wind blows.
It’s only the rabbits who learn these things,
And they learn them all from the song she sings.

Original Poem Copyright 2005 Elizabeth Ruffing

Charlotte was sewn from my own design and pattern, and I painted her with acrylic paints. She is a one-of-a-kind work of art, meant for display only. She has an oak-stained wooden base, which I also made, and it slips in behind her wings so that she can stand.

Charlotte’s wings were hand quilted, and then painted with acrylic paint as well. Charlotte is sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation.

Update: Cottontail Charlotte has already been adopted. Thank you!
