More pictures, you say?

Well, here you go then!


I made the bed from Maple and Pine and stained it with a cherry wood stain and varnish. I wasn’t sure I could do it when I started, but I had a feeling it would turn out somehow. It was a very fun project to do.

    I’m signing below with both hands. Looks like Marina would need to make at least 10 of these dolls and beds, otherwise Santa may have a VERY hard time come Christmas…

    I believe Marina can make anything. Jewellery, shoes, dresses, bedlinen, furniture, embroidery, beadwork, lace. Oh, I forgotten – she also makes exquisite dolls ;o)

    I wish Santa could all bring us one, but reality is that not even a warehouse full of cookies could pay for this work of Art. It is what it is.

    Love the visions your soul see’s. Whimsical work gets to me. -_-

    The bed is just perfection.The work you did on the colorful and ever-changing mattresses and coverlets is fantastic, but the wood work on the bed is even more astonishing!

    and now my Iðunn wants all of this for herself too, i shouldn’t let her check your blog, she will forever lie in my ears about all the accessories and things she wants! ;)

    Yoo made the bed?! Holy crap! It must be really big, also, by the looks of it. I really love all of the mattresses and sheets, they add the perfect touch.

    Oh wow, what a beautyyy!

    Brilliant. I love the scale of the doll to the bed. It makes me happy, even if she’s sad. So silly and childlike.

    I like how, even tho she’s been crying, she doesnt really look sad. Guess she got her prince ^_^.

    Could you tell us how you made the mattresses? I especially like the traditional ones in blue and white ticking with welted edges.

    extraodinary as usual (which is kind acontradictig but) the doll is cute and looks so fitting sleepdepraved and the bed is amazing aswell, it must have been a whole lot of work (and fun)to build and create it.
    I admire you for your bottomless creativity.

    That’s not a doll – that’s Gretchen Moll especially at The Thirteenth Floor movie.
    Very pretty.

    Oh this is simply delightful! Utterly amazing!

    I have always adored your dolls, and I love reading your blog to see what next you’ll come up with.

    I think this princess may be my new favorite! Especially with the bed also. You amaze me.

    She looks like Marie Antoinette. :) Very nice. I would love very much, one of these days to purchase one of your dolls, and I probably will once I’m able to. Please keep up the amazing work.

    Best wishes

    Oh my gods, when I first saw your work a while back, I was in awe. I really couldn’t forget about your dolls. SO I looked you up (well, I tried) and eventually found your website.
    I love them so much, you are such an inspiration! I just wish that I could afford your dolls, because then I would buy the whole lot!
