One of the most amazing places in the Netherlands to watch blooming crocuses is 'Het lange Voorhout' in The Hague, our former residence. It is a beautiful street (kind of ) between the buildings of our Parliament and the work palace of the King. We used to go there every year for a walk in February. Crocuses make me so happy; they are the announcers of Spring. Spring is by far my most favorable season of the year, probably because I was born in Spring ;)
As a tribute to this beautiful and special flower, I've made a doll with crocuses in her hair and matching clothing colors. Her face is sculpted. I know a sculpted face in not exactly Waldorf Style but it's so much fun doing it that I've tried to compensate the sculpted face with a very traditional Waldorf style body. The arms are button jointed for example. I love the fact that those arms are easier to pose instead of my regular floppy arms.
Cecile Crocus is 17" tall, has sunkissed skin and hazelnut brown eyes. Cecile will bring joy and happiness but as you can see in her eyes, she's also a bit of a mischief! Cecile wears a linen dress and underneath her dress a white jersey shirt and white jersey pants. Around her neck a silk (some photo's) hand felted scarf. And crochet shoes of course. The crocuses are made of wool felt.
Cecile will be uploaded in my Etsy store on January 15th at 5.00 pm EDT/23.00u.CET.
