New Ruffing’s Etsy Shop, and New Art Doll Photo Prints

Opal the Pixie Kitten, Original, One-of-a-kind art doll by Max Bailey and Elizabeth Ruffing, version 1, White Turkish Angora Cat with Lavender-pink ChrysanthemumsOpal the Pixie Kitten, Version 1

Update: We now have our items on this website instead. Please check out our Ruffing’s shop!

We have just opened our new collective Ruffing’s Etsy shop, and we’ve just added new photo prints of our original, one-of-a-kind art dolls to that shop. We made our very first sale from our new Etsy shop, and that order went on its way just this morning. Here are the first of the prints. They are made with the same archival cotton art paper and pigment inks as our other prints, and each comes in a protective cello sleeve. They are all made as they are ordered, one at a time, and are each hand signed.

We are in the process of moving the contents of A E Ruffing’s Etsy shop to the new Ruffing’s Etsy shop, along with our original one-of-a-kind art dolls, and we’re moving the prints and fine art from Elizabeth Ruffing’s Etsy shop there too. Elizabeth is going to keep her shop open for her handmade toys, and she will probably rename it something like “Hug Me Slugs and Friends”.

Most of our art dolls are already up, and we’re still adding more prints.

Fairy Bear teddy bear on pink roses watercolor art by Max Bailey

Fairy Bear teddy bear on pink roses watercolor art by Max Bailey

Fairy Bear by Max BaileyFairy Bears do only good deeds, and are so light they can sit in the middle of big pink roses without squashing them. Mine has a blue wand with a gold star on the end. He can just touch a rosebud with the wand, and it will open into a full bloom. This accomplished, his gossamer wings will carry him off to the next mission.

I gave him a circular border of other garden flowers, already open.

Fairy Bear by Max Bailey“Fairy Bear” is an original watercolor painting. I am making a limited number of reproductions of this image as a signed giclée print as well on 8 1/2 x 11 inch art paper.

Daisy Chains by Max Bailey

Daisy Chains Bunny Rabbit Print by Max BaileyA simple spool of thread and some field daisies are all it takes to keep these two little girl bunnies occupied and very pleased with themselves. Their grandmother showed them how to line up the stems of the daisies and wind the thread around them, to make crowns, necklaces, bracelets, and even ankle bracelets.

The one sitting on the tree stump, who has done all the work, has a huge sense of pride and accomplishment in her creations. The other knows, even without a mirror, that she has become far more beautiful than she was before.
