This is Lumi.
all week and really ever since I've known her, Lumi has been heartbreakingly sad.
and then, she started learning
last night she read
this morning still reading.
me: "what is taking you so long?"
Lumi: "big words, small print"
me: "lots of big ideas in there"
Lumi: "I think Americans are very lucky"
Me: "well, yes, they are lucky. you are lucky. many people try to come here and live here to find safety "
Lumi: "did I come here to be safe?"
me: "your great grandparents did"
Lumi: "I wish everyone could be safe"
me: "me too. but not everyone is safe. and its not always safe to be in America"
Please note: Lumi has a scar on one of her feet. it is small but I thought I should mention it.
Lumi is one of a kind!
All Inviting Play dolls are made with my own patterns and are my own designs.
Lumi will come with additional clothes and shoes of course!
Please, only one entrant per household. Lumi has
the Inviting Play armature system; Buried deep inside her woolly tissue
is a muscular skeletal system that allows her legs and arms and neck to
bend slightly and hold gentle poses. She is very firm and feels just like a
wool doll without armature.
Lumi's hair is made from snowy white mohair
locks given by a goat from a small American farm. They came to me raw so I processed, wefted and crocheted them into her wig. They are fairly sturdy ones and
you can pin them back or ruffle them up.
Lumi is not a children's toy. She was designed to be played with by adults.
you for supporting Dollectable, handmade dolls, doll artists, and Inviting Play. It
is only with your support, that I am able to bring these wool souls
into the world. Thank you.
