Marigold and her sisters lived in a red big house down by the river which played a very important role in their lives. In winter, when the river froze, they would use it for a road with horses pulling sleighs. Marigold also loved to skate there - she would skate down the river, reach the town in the valley and bring fresh bread from the bakery. In warmer seasons Marigold and her sisters would play in the river, learn to swim and watch the fish. These lucky girls grew up surrounded by nature and forests, they would often play hide and seek between old beautiful trees and blossoming meadows.
Marigold is a real forest fairy with her straw hat decorated with spring flowers, her little dress and an apron. This girl had a walk with me barefoot this morning as she is in desperate need of a cute pair of shoes. She knows how I love making fun shoes and is keeping an eye on me making them - just picking colours, fabrics and buttons for her unique pair.
She is 45cm/ 17,7'' tall.
