GARN, Handmade OOAK Welsh Elf Gnome Art Doll
A Bwbachod Fairy can be a HELPER
Are you one of those people that won't accept help offered? Do you constantly take on more than you can handle? Do you have trouble saying "no"? I am here to bin all that nonsense.
Me? What can I do?
Consider me the constant reminder (and perhaps the thorn in your side, the pebble in your shoe, the pesky insect trying to fly up your nose...) to STOP blundering forward on automatic pilot creating a life You DO NOT Want!
Hey! Guess what?! YOU are the one driving this bus!
Every moment is an opportunity to make a better, clearer, cleaner, more heartfelt, thought-out choice. A choice that moves you forward along the path of your design.
When you waiver (and you probably will) just gaze upon my ugly little face and make choices that serve you better. Don't worry, if you forget I will probably bite you on your ankle."
"The world is full of mystery and magic. We just need to look, listen and believe that wondrous things are still possible." Vonnie Winslow Crist
Garn is an ugly little guy with a heart as big as the sun. His wild hair is fashioned from Chocolate Yorkie hair collected from my wee dog, Lulu. I think Garn got some of her feisty personality too. The wispy hair is blended with real moss from our local welsh woodlands.
Garn has a distinctly green hue to his hand sculpted and painted face. His cosy all wool handmade felt wrap is woodsy shades of green, brown grey, teal, moss with shiny silk inclusions. His under robe is fashioned from locally sourced natural grey welsh wool fleece.
His small but sturdy body is constructed out of spring green wool melton and wood. His antique gold necklace is seed beads and he wears an iridescent rhinestone on his chest.
Garn carries his cat* familiar in a wee handled, woven basket with soft green moss and a single hand painted paper flower.
*Cats are very spiritual animals. They are known for their ability to wait and act only when the time is right. (They can also jump right in and bite you on your ankle! haha)
Cat symbolizes the transcendent, the supernatural and the unseen. Cat spirit animals are fanciful, magical and independent. They can appear when you need self-confidence and reassurance.
